    RB Retread was from a humane society. My mom got him when he was 5 weeks old (this was back in 1983).

    RB Buttons was given to us by a then-stranger (she's now my mom's best friend). She's not really a dog person and she bought two at once, one was Buttons and the other was his father (puppy mill of course), and when my brother begged for him (he was little and cute ) she said we could have him.

    Mandy's a shelter baby, we got her at 8 weeks. She was a-freaking-dorable too

    Nova's from a backyard breeder. Never, ever again. She is my heart dog and I will never, ever regret buying her but I just hate that she has so many horrible health problems and she's only a year old

    Luka's a humane society dog, was probably from a backyard breeder originally judging soley by her conformation (mismark, underbite, dudley). We adopted her in November when she was almost 2 years old. She was abused really bad before the humane society got her.

    Buck is from a reputable breeder.

    Zsa-Zsa was bought from a breeder. Tia came from a pet shop. But don't worry, it is a very good pet shop and I know the lady that owns it. She takes very good care of the animals and doesn't interbreed and stuff.

    I have pets from all those places- including other. Not so sure about the mill/byb thing- who judges whether a breeder is legit or not? A very conscientious breeder can look pretty sloppy beside an even more conscientious breeder. And technically, petstore animals could often be said to come from a mill, so I think that option is quite ambiguous.

    But of my pets-
    2 dogs were strays, 2 from a breeder,
    2 cats were foster offspring, 1 was stray, 1 was private rescue
    both my pigs were from petstores
    rabbit breeder
    rats- 2 from breeder, 2 from feeder breeder, 1 rescue, 1 from feeder bin at petstore, and two private rescue
    Hamsters- 3 petstore, 1 private rescue, 1 breeder, 1 rescue offspring, 5 we bred
    Gerbils- 2 private rescue, 3 offspring of these
    That's pretty much it. I do take in a lot of private rescues as I have that reputation.

    Ash was a stray who turned up on our verandah, in fact i think he had been sleeping there for sometime, Lexie we adopted from a cat shelter, and Duchess and Vicky are not mine legally, but since having the neighbours kitties spayed they have moved in my backyard, i look after them and we have built them a shelter, so i really feel they are mine now.
    Furangels only lent.
    RIP my gorgeous Sooti, taken from us far too young, we miss your beautiful face and purssonality,take care of Ash for us, love you xx000

    RIP my beautiful gorgeous Nikkita, taken so suddenly ,we will never ever forget you, we miss you more than words can say, loved you so much, my heart just aches for you, gone to be with Mama and Ash.

    RIP my beautiful Ash,your pawprints are forever in my heart, love and miss you so much my big boy. (very special thanks to Alysser for my cute siggy)

    RIP my sweet gorgeous girl Ellie-Mae, a little battler to the end, you will never ever be forgotten, your little soul is forever in my heart, my thoughts, my memories, my love for you will never die, Love you my darling little precious girl.

    Soni was a stray. Isis came from a lady who used to work with my husband. She was very much into Siamese and Ragdoll cats but none of her cats were or are altered so.... she ended up with a very large litter and we rescued a girl (who is in the process of getting spayed). Mortos, the gerbil, came from PetCo.

    I got all three of mine from friends whose pets had Pups/kitties.

    out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well."
