Berner article in BARK
« on: January 26, 2007, 07:45:17 pm »

For those of you who may read BARK magazine (great magazine by the way), the latest has an article in there by a guy who's friends ordered him a Berner from a backyard breeder/puppymill over the internet.  It is a great article to show how NOT to buy a dog.

No health certifications or clearances mentioned and some people who "were breeding to raise money for college".  Yikes. The poor dog had horrible diarrhea and Gi Tract problems from the start and ultimately horrible elbow dysplasia.  She limped so badly that the owner actually did the highly suspect and often failing elbow surgery.

If you have a chance to get ahold of Bark this month, I highly recommend it.  They also did a good article about the concerns re: vaccines.
