Puppy Mills are large-scale breeding facilities characterized by overcrowding, inadequate shelter, food, water and veterinary care in which profit comes before the well-being of the puppies within it. The puppies are sold wholesale to the pet industry after they are born into filth from unhealthy mothers who have been born into puppy mills themselves.
There are usually anywhere from 200-300 females and only 50 male dogs at puppy mills. Inbred animals with deformities and congenital disorders are a regular occurrence at puppy mills, but are never cured. Puppies, mothers & fathers are all kept in tiny cages, constantly walking around on wire cages & their own faeces, some never seeing sunlight. What about those animals who break free? They’re met by electric barb wired fences, reinforced with a strong electric current.
They are beating poor animals senseless. And most, for pointless reasons or none. So yes, you can call them mean, insensitive, jerks. But puppy mills are just as horrible as animal abuse.

Once a fine sheepdog, useful in the ranch, Candy’s dog is now crippled by age, Candy’s sentimental attachment to the dog- his plea to Carlson that he let him live longer due to the fact that he raised it since it was a little puppy- means nothing at all on the ranch. Although Carlson promised to kill the dog painlessly, his insistence that the dog must die supports a cruel natured law that the strong will dispose of the weak. Candy identifies this lesson, for he fears that one day he will suffer the same feat as his dog, he realises that he is nearing an age when he will not be needed at the ranch subsequently no longer wanted.
