Beneful is one of the worst dog foods there is. Just because it has cute commercials and a pretty picture on the bag doesn't mean it's good food!

Go to the pet supply or feed store and look for a premium kibble, there are lots to choose from, the sales staff can help you, just please feed your puppies anything other than Beneful!

Well put.

When people buy from a puppy mill, it's not just about how great the puppies may be, or how you are saving them from the mill/pet shop.

It's about what you just supported with your MONEY. And you have now helped empty the cage for the next set of puppies.

Your money, whether you want it to or not, is supporting and promoting and making puppy mills continue because people can make money ON THE PARENT DOGS by keeping them in lives like this:

Everyone is just telling this young girl to get a "premium kibble" and isn't giving her price compatiable suggestions. I doubt she's going to convince daddy to buy $60 - $80 30ish lb bags of Orijen when he looks at the dogs and thinks they are fine on Beneful.

Kelina, what petstores do you have available in your area? It will help people better help you pick a good food that is not too expensive. Do you have petsmart, petco, pet supplies plus, how about tractor supply company? Google if you aren't sure. TSC (tractor supply company) and the other stores main webpages should have location finders on there where you type in your zip code and it will tell you where the nearest store is.

If you have a TSC you can shop at, I would recommend their house brand called "4 Health." It's a good food at a good price and the dogs will probably like it. You could also try Diamond Naturals, even the regular diamond would be better than Beneful and should be about the same price as Beneful.

Don't worry too much about your puppies right now. Take good care of them, love them, socialize them, obedience train them, and if problems come up in the futuer, we can help you deal with them as they come up. No sense stressing youreself out now about things that may or may not happen in a year or two.

AWE! thanks a lot. I pay for the dogs. The food, the vet etc.. but if you say so lol..

I live around a petco. Now, I was already thinking of posting some of their food , and asking which one is the best.

I can try and find a TSC around me.

Thanks a lot. I love my pups a lot.

Nightline - Puppy Mill Capital, USA? - YouTube

Over 200 Dogs Rescued from PA Puppy Mill - YouTube

CNN Puppy Mill Show , Wayne Pacelle, Bill Smith and Carole Raphaelle Davis - YouTube
Maggie, you went beyond..

I love my pups and I am not supporting a dang puppy mill...
I am happy that my dogs are now safe and sound living with me.

The question yu should be wondering is if im going to buy another pup..
Thats a NO. I wont.
