A friend wants to get a Maltichon but wants to absolutely avoid a puppy farm. They've had a chocolate lab but sadly he died.
We both are ashamed and disgusted that Ireland is the puppy farm centre of Europe.
What can she do to avoid buying from a puppy farm ?
Are all Done Deal puppies from puppy farms ?

Invariably yes. You won't mind a reputable breeder of 'maltichon' - it's not a breed, but a name made up by puppy farmers to sell crossbreeeds.
Cavaliers in Need is a good rescue for small breeds.

There's also Mollie Moos Westie Rescue - not just westies but other small breeds and crosses.
