Puppy Farm exposed
There are a number of disreputable dog breeders out there who are in the business just for the money.

Thinking of buying a bedlington puppy?
The RSPCA gives the following advice:
Insist on seeing the puppy with its mother where it was raised
Never buy from an unlicensed breeding establishment
If unsure, ask to see the breeder's licence
Avoid adverts offering lots of different breeds for sale
Never buy a pup sold straight from a car boot or at an open-air event like a market
The Kennel Club add:
Always buy from reputable breeders - contact the Kennel Club for breeder details
Never buy if you feel sorry for it - they can invariably be ill
Try and leave the breeder and then report the breeder to local authority or RSPCA
Dog should ideally be raised in home - assess the state of house
The mother should be on site - ideally the father too
