Puppy Love: Be Cautious In Buying Dogs, Says Dr. McCreary


Greenville veterinarian Dr. Karri McCreary, co-owner of the Greenville Animal Hospital, discusses the problem of "puppy mills," businesses that breed dogs without adequate regard for their well-being.  Dr. McCreary favors laws such as those recently passed in Illinoisthat make it difficult for puppy mills to sell dogs to pet stores.  She says if you're looking for a pure-bred dog, it's best to buy them from reputable breeders.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
