•Someone who is looking for a quick buck
•Someone who drastically undercuts the price of registered purebred breeders
•Someone who does not care who buys their animals or for what purpose
•Someone who lets animals go at seven weeks or younger (dogs / cats), so that they do not have to spend any money on vaccinations – nor do they have to approach a vet and admit to what they are doing
