    These people are selling maltese, shih tzu, and yorkie puppies that they're advertising as tiny purse puppies!

    If you look on the maltese page they're selling a WAY TOO SMALL maltese for 5 grand.

    It makes me so sad :(

    That is so sad :( It is just a glorified puppy mill..

    I looked at their chihuahua puppy for sale... he is way out of breed standard... I'm not sure about the others (I'm not familiar with the breed standard for yorkies and malteses, but I am assuming they are way out of standards as well).

    I actually was on a website for dog supplies and saw this under "preferred breeders" list.

    I just hate them breeding such small puppies. It seems like they'll be headed for health problems later.

    that chi pup looked sick! and so do many of the other pups, love how they dress em up and put them in "settings" to draw the eye off the faults and the fact that most of them just dont look happy or healthy!
    poor babies...

    Oh, that is so sad. I feel so sorry for all those little pups. They have a ridiculous amount of puppies!

    You know what's also sad? Most of those dogs that they are touting as "teacups" are within the breed standard. Reputable breeders have dogs on the small end of the standard all the time, and they don't charge HALF as much for them!
