WAUSAU (WAOW) -- We've all heard the heartbreaking stories of puppy mills and there have even been some right here in our area.

Dolores Glytas gives us some tips to avoid buying from a puppy mills. 

She says to avoid the Internet and to remember than no reputable breeder would sell you a dog sight unseen.  If you can get a dog without visiting the breeders home, it isn't a reputable breeder, according to Glytas.

Also, ask to see a breeders license and visit their facilities.  When you go to look at a puppy, check their living condition and the condition of their parents.

Your local kennel club or humane society can give you the names and numbers of reputable breeders.
