LEGAL DEFINITION OF A PUPPY MILL

"A 'puppy mill' is a dog breeding operation in which the health of the dogs is disregarded in order to maintain a low overhead and maximize profits" Avenson v. Zegart, 577 F. Supp. 958,960 (D. Minn. 1984). Sometimes the court does hit the nail on the head.

Paragraph 36 of an Arizona Complaint: "Petland further misleads consumers by exploiting the low standards of many breed registration companies. Petland deceives consumers into believing that a pet's registration or ability to be registered at one of these many registry companies reflects the quality of the puppy while further concealing its puppy mill origins. In reality, the registration of a puppy purchased at Petland provides no indication that the puppy is of better quality than a non-registered dog, is capable of being shown or is healthy and free from congenital or hereditary defects."
