Why do puppies look so cute in the pet store?

Ok so i was doing research on puppy mills and i came across people telling stories about their pet store puppies.The story always starts the same i noticed.The puppy will be all cute and fine but then when they get home the puppy gets sick and im wondering why in the pet store the puppies look fine but when they get home they get sick.

Because while at the pet store they are pumped full of antibiotics. In a shop that’s on the ball someone will make sure any goopy eyes or nasal discharges are clean up. Just like in a regular store some is always checking to make sure the product looks good enough to sell.

And when all else fails this is the usual fall back story, "Oh its just a small cough/cold."

Common sense is overruled by the cute lil puppy face.

    Because they’re made to look cute so that poor unknowledgable people buy then from backyard breeders and the puppy isn’t so cute when it’s got a world of health implications……

    They’re fine at a young age, the implications take time to develope.

    The pet store puppies are sick in the pet store, too, but people are too stupid to realize it.

    Of course, if they’re willing to buy a puppy from a pet store (which means that the puppy comes from a puppy mill) then they’re too stupid to have done their research in the first place, and probably wouldn’t recognize a sick dog anyway.

    I personally think everyone should get a shelter dog,but I got it from a friend.Anyways,it’s because it’s nearly everyone at the store’s job to make sure it LOOKS good,and cute,and all snuggly,but it’s sick because it’s a puppy mill dog.

    Babies (animals or otherwise) always look cute. It’s like nature’s way of making you not strangle them when they act up.

    Looking cute has nothing to do with health however. Have you ever noticed that the dogs in the stores aren’t very active? Yes they are in a cage but they can still do more then just sleep. Or their coats are dry looking with flakes of skin. If you ever take a close look at them, they often have behavioral issues right off the bat like being scared of people despite playing through the glass.

    I don’t think pet store puppies look "cute". I think they look sickly & poorly bred. And they are being put in a situation to be sold to impulse buyers. People who buy a dog on a whim & have no idea about the time & effort it will take to train a dog. A lot of these dogs, bought on impulse will end up in shelters & euthanized. Thinking about that & the puppymills these pups came from just makes me sad & want to cry. Nothing "cute" about any of that!

    Actually, I think the puppies in pets stores look pathetic and sick in the pet store, as well as when you get them home. I don’t even go in pet stores that sell puppies any more, to avoid the urge to vomit.
