Lambriar, Inc., one of the largest puppy brokers in the United States, has announced that it is closing its kennel doors for good. Puppy brokers like Lambriar are middlemen, buying dogs from puppy mills and distributing them to pet stores throughout the country. Brokers are an important cog in the wheel of the cruel and inhumane puppy mill industry.

When asked why Lambriar is closing its doors, owner Roger Lambert told Kansas newspaper  The Belleville Telescope “When you couple the bad economy with increasing rules and regulations and increased pressure from animal rights activists, well, it just got too hard.”

We have been working hard to shed light on the link between puppy mills and pet store puppies, and it seems to be working! As more and more people take our No Pet Store Puppies pledge not to buy anything in stores that sell puppies, the industry will continue to feel the ripple effects and be forced to make changes.

If you haven’t taken the No Pet Store Puppies pledge yet, please do! And please be sure to share it with your friends so that one day, puppy mill cruelty will be a distant memory.

I'm one of the few that actually knew lambriar and all I can say is good things, yes they were the middleman but also hardworking. They actually gave a crap about their pups bought. This is an example of a hard working business corrupted by society and now unemployed. Both my dogs were from lambriar breeders. All this does is open the doors for more shady breeders and businesses.

abe miller a big broker near millersburg Ohio re opens under all his kids and relatives names.. And at least the pet stores are paying taxes... I have come to find out 95 % of all ads in newspapers are selling puppy mill dogs on a small time basis and NOT paying any taxes...

I have very mixed emotions about this. I purchased a L/A puppy from a pet store a little over a year ago. The puppy was so healthy looking and full of life. It has turned out to be the smartest, healthiest and most lovable pet we've ever had. Our papers did say that she came from BJ & Guys kennels. I can only say I'm thankful I got her.

I got Max, my Miniature Schnauzer from the Fish Bowl pet shop in Amityville, NY. in 2004. With the promise that I was getting a full pedigree Schnauzer. The breeder was listed as Arthur Delp. Max's credentials and lineage had very impressive names. But, from what I'm reading, I'm suspicious. I would like to find the breeder to know more about Max's lineage, etc. Searches for Arthur Delp go nowhere. I'm lucky so far. Max looks very thorough bred, even won a blue ribbon in a CT dog show. He just suffers from occasional mini seizures, which I am told is a possible condition of the breed.

I just googled Lambriar, and was shocked at what I found. Just to know if Max's papers are real.

My wife and I have 2dogs from Lambriar, a German Shepard (now five yrs old) and a saint Bernard (now four yrs old) I am happy we have them, but will never know the pain or suffering that they have gone through. Our Shepard has seizers and has to take meds twice a day for the rest of her life. Our saint has had no problems so far. I am glad they are closed down, but hope all the left over puppies found new homes. Karma will get the owner and all involved,in the end!
