When you purchase a new pet, hooved or not, do you check references of the person you got them from? Would you do a home visit with the potential pet and the person offering it? If you decided you wanted an animal, visited the breeder facility would you walk away if their other animals were uncared for or under cared for? I know I would. If they are selling animals every animal they have had better be in top condition. I know of a person breeding reptiles that does not properly feed or care for their horses or the dogs and cat. I don't understand how pet stores can do business with this person knowing he only takes care of what makes him money. We should all be more vigilant and responsible when choosing a new animal to love. Have a great day, and thank you for reading my blog.
