IMO, any large scale breeding program, where money is the top priority is a puppymill. They can be clean, do health testing and even have show titles, but the dog's are getting the attention they need and the puppies won't be socialized."The following is the "legal" definition of a puppy mill:
A “puppy mill” is “a dog breeding operation in which the health of the dogs is disregarded in order to maintain a low overhead and maximize profits.”
The court case was:
Avenson v. Zegart, 577 F. Supp. 958, 960 (D. Minn.1984)."
