Thank you for the advice. I guess I keep forgetting how young she really is. I got my Jack Russell mix at 13 weeks and he was housebroken within a week...I have to keep in mind that they are different dogs though. I'm sure Cece will get it in her own time!

Dog Laws & Legislation > Amish Puppy Mills?

I am new here and think I may have bought a puppy mill puppy without realizing what I was doing. Cece was advertised in the local newspaper and the family I got her from was located in Penn Yann, NY. I really didn't know much about puppy mills...I guess I figured puppy mill puppies were all sold to pet stores, so as long as I wasn't buying from a pet store, then I was okay (I realize now, that thinking is wrong and I would most likely get a rescue next time). The family in Penn Yann happened to be Amish. I didn't think too much of it, but the next day, at work, two of my co-workers mentioned that their dogs had also been purchased in Penn Yann from Amish families. We all just thought it was a weird coincidence, but after Googling "Amish" and "puppy", I am starting to wonder.

How can you tell if what looks like just people breeding a couple of family dogs is really a puppy mill? The family seemed so nice that it is almost impossible to imagine they could treat any living thing in a cruel way, but the more I read the more I wonder. I feel awful if I have indeed contributed to this horrible practice. Thank you for listening to my "confession" and I appreciate any advice on what I can do to help stop puppy mills in my state, now that I am more aware of the issue.

Hello, everyone! I am new here and have a 13 week old Shihpoo named Cece. She is doing quite well with the housebreaking, as far as peeing goes, but keeps pooping in the house. Does anyone have any suggestions or know why she is having more trouble with poop than pee? Thank you and I look forward to getting to know all of you and your dogs!
