So-called "puppy mills" and other "pet mills" have long been the nightmare of reputable breeders, animal lovers, and pet owners alike. These inhumane "commercial breeding" establishments not only treat their animals inhumanely and cruelly, but produce pets that are unhealthy. This is because of the substandard conditions puppies are born into. It is also because breeding females are often treated with extreme cruelty; are required to breed endlessly; are often malnourished; and are kept in unthinkable conditions for their short lives. The intent of these so-called "puppy mill" organizations is simple: To "mass-produce" animals, especially puppies, at lowest cost possible and at highest volume possible, simultaneously. There is no attention to the animals' welfare at all.

Taking a cue from some of the most highly demanded and trendy dog breeds in the past couple of years, this paper discusses how media popularity affects pet choices, exemplifies breed discrimination and negatively influences the expectations about dog behavior as a whole.
