A moving and in-depth examination of the pet breeding industry
10 April 2011 | by johndoppSee all my reviews

I Breathe examines pet breeding with an impartial eye, illuminating both the unsung heroes and the unseen villains of the industry.

Several key industry representatives defend their trade, but their words stand in stark contrast to the realities of puppy mills, auctions... and their own practices. This documentary holds surprises that will drop your jaw.

The work of tireless rescuers like Theresa Strader and the National Mill Dog Rescue are shown, and it is through their achievements that viewers will be inspired.

Reputable breeders are shown in their day-to-day operations, demonstrating the best practices that are often eclipsed by the horrors of puppy mills and puppy brokers.

And no animal lover can be unmoved by the story of Lily, the tragic central figure in the documentary.

I Breathe pulls at your heart, but ultimately leaves you thoughtful, touched, and inspired. Anyone who wants to bring a pet into their home should watch this movie first, and know the sad truth behind so many of those adorable puppies in the window.
