Pet shops are no longer allowed to sell, barter, or auction dogs raised in puppy mills.

The legislation originated from a story out of Oklahoma where a Chihuahua named "Harley" lost one of his eyes at a puppy mill before being rescued.

Dan Taylor told Fox 31:

“[Dogs] make us better people, they make me a better person.”
