Puppymill expo

Amish-made furniture and items are big sellers in the mountains where people own vacation homes or like cabin-decor. I, too, will boycott Amish products, including that wonderful Amish butter šŸ˜ž that comes from PA. I'm appalled that a group with such high standards and moral beliefs would run puppy mills.

I realize this post is a littlelate but I have to say my peaceā€¦that is the saddest segment i think I have ever seen. Horrible people, and I thought Amish people were gentle, peaceloving and caring. I too will boycott all amish goods to stand my ground. Shame on you, Amish folks. I don't know what bible you are raised on, but the one I have does not condone that behavior what so ever. God made all things living and you think he agrees with you taking them and abusing them.

I am NOT defending Amish puppy mills or any other BYB/Puppy Millā€¦ I find them as horrible as everyone else..... however remember these people think of dogs as "livestock"... in the long term...not family companions... in the short term... It is only through education that people will learn how to find a dog as a family companion from a responsible breeder... One victory is one less puppy that is purchased by someone that doesn't health test and raises puppies for profit as the main reason

@Basenjimamma:

Shame on you, Amish folks.

While I do agree with your feelings about this, the image of Amish reading this made me giggle a little.

And yes Pat, to the Amish dogs are livestock, but that still does not give them a pass to treat their "livestock" poorly. You can still treat your cattle/pigs/chickens/dogs/horses with integrety and kindness, even if they are going to end up on your dinner table. (Of course I'm sure you feel the same way.)

Sadly, many Amish are not into the puppymills, but as information isn't shared as to who is and who isn't, many will be punished for a few.
I just wish we could stop this type of treatment of dogs all over the country!
Sigh

Yes, I do feel that way, for sure

You know, I think that there are way more then you think there are into breeding/selling puppiesā€¦

Yes I do realize there aren't many computers in amish country nor very many amish folks on here, but I got my point across. Now in retrospect I sort of laugh about it too. Sometimes emotions take upper hand and silly things come out, but at least they come out. I also realize not all amish are in to puppy mills, but the few that are leave a bad taste in my mouth and as experience has it, when something tastes bad you tend to not want to taste that again..if you know what I mean.
