Not a good thing, but a thing

Pet leasing is a relatively new industry. You buy a pet and it's costly so you finance the purchase and don't realize you've just leased your new pet.

The Federal Trade Commission told pet sellers that they must disclose to consumers that the puppy deals are leases before they sign the agreement.

People are being blindsided with the news that their dog is a lease, and have to spend a lot more to keep it! Until it's banned (or better regulated), maybe consider a rescue! They don't cost nearly as much and are just a lovable and loyal!
