Q: Do you think pet stores who buy puppies from puppy mills should be fined?
There are already small "punishments" for cruelty of puppy mill runners, should there be equal or lesser punishment for knowingly purchasing a puppy from one?

Yes, I do. However, our pet stores in columbia mo do not sell pets. Puppy mills usually sell their own puppies online to make it harder to track them or prosecute them in case of a problem. I think we need more inspectors for the breeding facilities. In Missouri we don't have enough inspectors to get these people shut down. The dogs in the photo were taken from a bad breeder who broke their bones.
