Puppy farms operate all over the world. In the UK most of the puppy farms are in Wales and Ireland, however, increasingly we are finding puppies imported from Slovakia and other Eastern European countries.
Puppy Farmers rarely sell from their own premises. There is a very good reason for this; they do not want anyone seeing the conditions the dogs are kept in. The puppies are sold to dealers and pet shops all over the UK. The dealers will usually advertise the litters on the internet. It is worth remembering that ethical dog breeders care about their puppies and would never sell their puppies to a pet shop or a dealer!
Puppy farm dogs are kept in appalling conditions, they are fed the minimum they need to keep alive and often have no fresh water. They never leave the confines of their pens and are never exercised. They are bred every season and interbred which leads to congenital defects.
