|Not all mill dogs are AKC registered though some may be or some are just “said” to be. Mills, BYB’s and Designer Breeders out to make a buck will use AKC,UKC, CKC (both Canadian and continental kennel clubs) I even saw recently in our paper a “made up” registry because many people just don’t know! They see (and I quote the paper) “ AUC Registered Doodles, champion pedigrees $1000.” I thought you got to be kidding me but people actually believe it!! That the sad thing. Heck they will even use the “Name” of a kennel club to gain leverage, and scam people into paying top dollar for a sick pup. A Pedigree is really of no use to a pet owner. They are only useful to a reputable breeder.
Just found a new puppy mill in my area that does this. The worst part is her grandson grew up believing this is how dogs are taken care of. He was telling his friends about how many dogs he has and that he has so many they live in a “barn” because his grandma was a “breeder”; that she breeds many different breeds. So of cores I had to kind of laugh sarcastically and say “you mean she is a puppy mill.” He got pretty snappy with me, proceeding to tell me all the puppies got “played with” and all got there shots before they left! When I went to set him straight he just blew it off and I remember him saying “my grandma is not a puppy mill or BYB, what are you even talking about?” and all his friends chimed in laughing all the while saying “yeah, your crazy” and “she’s a breeder, puppy mills are bad”. Ohhh I was just sick!! And to top it off while laughing this guy says “yeah she makes BANK off those dogs! Selling them to China, we think they get eaten because we never hear from them. But that’s our money” OHH I about died, and it makes me sick every day they abuse kennel club names to farther there business. People just really don’t know!
Sorry to hi-jack your thread OP.
