And such a puppy mill was busted in Tx within the month. Sickening the conditions the dogs had to live in.
Can I ask if you actually talked to these breeders about their dogs at all or just skimming websites for review?Anne and Ross
Thank you very much for you replies. I have been lurking here for a while and I knew I would get the honest answers I was looking for. I currently own a 7 year old rescue rottie mix. Every animal I have owned has been a rescue and I agree that rescues can be wonderful pets. Again thank you for your replies and taking the time to look at those websites. I promise you that I will do my due diligence before I make this very importtant decision. I also promise you that I will be back asking more questions.
I have already contacted Anne privately and asked that she reconsider and remain with our group. I have found her input very helpful, particularly to new members and those with little rottweiler experience...............
I know of a fantastic breeder that has several litters per year and she's not making any money either, but I'll be damned if her dogs are not kicking butt in the show ring and performance events.
I'd like to know who the chicken s**t people are who can't contact me directly regarding this issue - I don't give a rats a$$ what people think of me. I have reasons for my opinions, and like everyone else, I am entitled to those opinions. I am, however, NOT afraid to voice my opinions, like some folks apparently are.
I'm done...not only with this discussion, but with this forum...ya'll don't like me...well, then, buh buy and good luck to ya'll...I'll sit back and watch the idiots and their BYB dogs with health issues cry about how they got suckered, and I'll sit and be happy about the well bred dogs doing well in events...but I'm not gonna post anything.
YOU WIN...happy now???!!!
I DID hear about this-- guess I didn't think you were talking about the same one. Duh! I been watching all the pics that Lew Olson has been putting up on her Facebook. This is terrible and disgusting --
And therein lies the problem. When posts such as these pop up, nothing is stated to the op's experience with the breed, what they are or are not looking for. And I'm guessing from this whole discussion none of the breeders asked about were ever contacted.Understood Ross-- the OP never stated if he wanted working or show home.
Took a look at their website...and I don't see anything about health clearances. I then went to the OFA site www.offa.org and put in the breeding dogs registered names...and again..nothing found. All breeding dogs should have clearances for hips, elbows,eyes and heart...and all verified on the OFA website. I see nothing. I also see no titles either conformation, or working titles on the dogs he is breeding. Looks like they got their hands on some dogs that had titled relatives...and is breeding his own dog without anything. ) : Just because a dogs pedigree has some titled dogs...does not mean that they produce quality dogs. To me it looks like the only thing they do with their own dogs is breed them.Does anyone have experience with Vom Kaiser Wappen in MO?
No decent, COE breeder sells puppies on Nexday Pets. A good breeder will have a website, with their dog's registered names, pictures (usually win pictures) and their accomplishments, and the health scores. All health certs should be verified on the OFA website by inputting the dog's registered name. www.offa.org Good breeders have a waiting list of buyers before they breed....they don't need to advertise. They show their dogs, and are active in the dog world …...and word gets around.Hi, I am new to the forums. Can anyone provide any information in regards to Gauldin's Rottweilers. Thank you
