Wouldn't you think that
sellers would at least make an attempt to have their Quality Breeding
Stock/Pets look presentable when they arrive for a sale? Jake, an apricot
poodle, was a matted mess when he was purchased. He has since been groomed, and
shelter staff say he's a real sweetheart! Here he is, trying to steal a kiss
from his new friend.
Jake is also chryptorchid,
which means that at just a few days under one year old at time of sale, both of
his testicles remained undescended. You can bet that he was NOT listed as a
"proven breeder" in the Horst Auction Catalog! Not that it matters,
as he will be neutered anyway.
By the way, you can see Jake's
seller, Alvin Martin, in Part Two of TMJ-4's I-Team report on puppymills.
