Also severe tooth decay, ear infections, dehydration, and lesions on their eyes, which almost always leads to blindness. With no concern for hygiene the dogs are forced to relieve themselves in their cages, so they have to walk and sleep on their own feces. Also these dogs are in bad environments so most are not protected by the weather (heat, cold, rain and snow). It's common to find dogs in puppy mills with collars that have been fastened so tightly that they have become embedded in a dog’s neck and must be carefully cut out. Puppy mill operators often fail to apply proper husbandry practices that would remove sick dogs from their breeding pools, puppies from puppy mills are prone to congenital and hereditary conditions.
For example, this causes dachshunds to have long spines and short legs which can cause disc disease. Disc disease is when the discs in the back press into the spinal cord, causing damage and severe pain for the dog. It can lead to serious damage to the spine and paralysis. Another example of health issues is with Cavalier King Charles spaniels, who suffer from syringomyelia. Syringomyelia is when the brain is too big for the head.
Many people don’t realise that since Rottweilers are working dogs, if they are not stimulated, a lot of dangerous issues could arise. The most common problem when the Rottweiler ends up in the wrong hands is aggression and reactivity. Although genetics play a crucial role in shaping each individual Rottweiler, the vast majority of times, aggression in such a breed is due to improper handling. The consequences of such are dangerous and may even prove to be fatal, in the case of an aggressive Rottweiler, because now, not only is it a threat to itself and family, but also has the potential to maul innocent people. In conclusion, the Rottweiler can indeed be the best dog breed out there if placed in the right hands.
Around thirty to fourty people die each year from their injuries, and an estimated 100,000 are injured badly enough to require plastic surgery or a lot of stitching, according to Polsky. Most fatal dog attacks involve pit bulls. But Polsky emphasized that this doesn't mean all pit bulls are aggressive inherently. Some pit bulls have been bred for fighting or intimidation, and so they may have more aggressive traits. But studies show that Chihuahuas and Jack Russell terriers are actually the most aggressive breeds, but their size and physical limitations prevent them from killing people, Polsky said.
Next, I will proceed with the common hygiene and health problems that are faced by those puppies. According to the article published in Animals in 2000, puppies suffer from open sores and skin infections due to being fed with cheap or maggot-infested food, assuming meal time are not missed. Most often, the supply of water being provided to the dogs is unhygienic and can be breeding ground for mosquitoes and algae. In the worst condition, some of the dogs are not even given water supply regularly and are left in extremely high temperatures causing them to become dehydrated. This is one of the reasons the puppies and their mothers die very frequently in the mills.
They are kept in small cages, The floor hurts there paws, and because of this they get cuts and scratches. They are not cleaned and not fed properly. They may get fed but they pretty much starve most of the time. According to thepuppymillproject.org, after a while some dogs just end up getting killed. How many dogs is this happening to?
Temperament Being naturally territorial and protective, Chihuahuas can be easily provoked to attack, and are therefore generally unsuitable for homes with small children. A Chihuahua who is pack leader of their humans may snap at children. This breed is generally not recommended for children, not because they are not good with them, but because most people treat the Chihuahua differently than they would a large dog, causing them to become untrustworthy. The AKC describes the breed as, "A graceful, alert, swift-moving little dog with saucy expression, compact, and with terrier-like qualities of temperament." The breed tends to be fiercely loyal to one particular owner, but may be attached to more.
It became very common in Holstein-Friesian cattle because of the overuse of a heterozygous bull for artificial insemination; however it is rare in other breeds. In America the use of an outstanding Holstein bull for artificial insemination resulted in 60,000 services before it was discovered that he was heterozygous for the syndactyly gene. This has led to syndactyly being the most common breed defect in the American dairy industry. Syndactyly has been identified as an autosomal recessive trait. It has varying degrees of severity and genetic penetrance.

Even though many people believe emotional support dogs are considered service dogs and should have the same rights as the others, owners of service dogs are treated unfairly because of the increase in numbers of fake service dogs. This affects the ability for one to use a service dog to its full potential. People cannot be asked to leave a public place if the business thinks it is a fake dog because some service dogs are simply under-trained. The population of those using fake service dogs or emotional support animals are ruining the ability for the disabled to use them without being questioned.
It is often argued that dogs are a health hazard to humans. To illustrate, dogs sometimes carry parasites as well as germs, called zoonotic diseases, that can induce illness in the owner. In some cases, some dogs act extremely violently towards humans, threatening their life. Admittedly, if not handled correctly, dogs can pose a serious threat to a persons’ health and safety. At the same time, however, these cases are rare at large.
