Even though Barkworks has come under fire in the past for misleading its customers about where its dogs come from, it seems the company hasn't learned from its mistakes.
New undercover footage released from the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) shows that they're still getting their puppies from some of the worst puppy mills in the country.
The footage, which looks at a number of pet shops in Southern California, includes undercover investigative work at a Barkworks store in a mall in Brea, California. The just-released footage was shot last year.
When the CAPS investigator asked for the puppy's records, he recognized the name of the "breeder": Dennis and Donna Van Wyk, of New Sharon, Iowa, who run the Prairie Lane Kennel, which, the investigator says in the video, is "one of the worst breeders I've ever seen."
