I don't know who to believe
« on: October 04, 2007, 11:06:56 pm »
I am not going to buy any puppy, but puzzled who should I believe. Is the pet owner lying or the breeder is a puppy mill. What's your judgement? ???
The pet owner:
The owners of ****************** are a bunch of crooks! They claim to be legitimate dog breeders but they are a puppy mill. I bought a little male boxer puppy from them in July and he was sick from the day I brought him home. He had a displaced pad on his back foot...


The breeder:
We..********** have never sold a Boxer puppy to a 'Jessica' . We did sell a white Boxer to a Bert. She may be his wife or daughter. She has never been here. ...

That's a puppy mill no doubt. You can tell by how many breeds they have, plus they have nothing but just info on puppies, shipping, prices, ect...

UGH! I can't believe that they put those pictures on their own website!!!! Those are HORRIBLE!

Ed, are you thinking about getting a puppy from them?

I would say puppymill for sure. I mean, just based on sheer numbers alone.

Yep, it's not the worst case scenario but it is a puppy mill!
Basically they breed bunch of mutts and unhealthy puppies. 4 people are not enough to take care of all those litters! Their website is just sad  >:( 

BTW check this one... I think this person might be interested in "go to h*ll kennel"

http://baltimore.craigslist.org/pet/439985910.html


What kills me is this:
"What I don't want is more people attempting to sell the animal at ridiculous prices." Then those people post the information in the original post  >:(

there is a LOT of negative press about ripoffreport, NOT TO SAY that they aren't a mill...but just make sure to do extra research and not always believe what they say.

I'm sorry, I have edited the original post to take out anything with the breeder's name.  Edwpang, I know you are in no way endorsing this breeder.  I did this to avoid that breeder from coming to this board and creating havoc, and also to avoid any disgruntled clients from starting a name calling party here as well.
Again, I am sorry.

No, I am not planning to get any puppy now, just confused about what was true the 2 parties claimed. If I were to get any puppy I would get healthy one from rescuer.

Based on the picture, I am sure that they are a puppy mill.

I also believe the pet owner and think the 'breeder' is obviously lying. Think about it like this: what would the pet owner get out of telling you a lie? Nothing. The 'breeder', on the other hand, has a reason to lie to you
