I encountered the first of this breeder's dogs needing rescue through a local shelter in rurual GA in 2007.  The dog had been turned into animal control by its owner along with its paperwork.  At that time the kennel was named BearPath.  The breeder acted outraged and railed on and on about how upset she was a dog she bred ended up in animal control; however, heard later from the other rescue volunteer handling the case that she tried to breed this dog when his hips tested poorly. 

Since that time, several BearPath dogs have been placed through various GA rescues.  There was a case of one dog having luxating patellas in both knees, another dog dying of cancer at the age of 7 and various other orthopedic issues.  Another rescue contact stated that the breeder requested to place some of her pups through the rescue group and when the rescuer said "no", the breeder threatened to have the pups euthanized simply because they were tri colored and she had no buyers for them.

Recently I have come in contact with two recent buyers of her dogs born in 2010 both commented they were told their dogs would grow to be much bigger and both dogs were under 15lbs - which is a toy Aussie not a mini Aussie.  One of the puppies had a terrible temperament and was so aggressive towards other dogs it had to be removed from the area.  The other dog was very sweet - but obviously bred with something else to be so small. 

Both buyers commented they were told the dogs would be 30lbs - obviously they weren't. 

I work with someone who also purchased a dog from this kennel - that has had chronic eye problems and he was "not happy" with his experience or the conditions the animals were kept in.

This kennel has changed names several times - probably as a result of bad press.  Folks, do your research - don't buy animals sight unseen and don't go for Toy Aussies because you think they'll less expensive and easier to care for.  You will pay tenfold in healthcare costs while also paying twice as much for your puppy from the breeder.   Since becoming involved in rescue in 2005, I have encountered personally 4 dogs of this kennel requiring a rescue group's help.  Obviously the breeder isn't willing to support the dogs she brings into the world when they require a rehome situation nor does the breeder care where the dogs are placed.

The american kennel club made a mistake on Sandy Goldschmit. She is in the system. however you get what you get when purchasing a pet from her. so it's up to you. No health guarantee.

If you want to get a puppy from her be sure you I's are dotted and T's are crossed.

Help!! I gave a 300.00 deposit down on a pomeranian puppy to Sandy Goldschmit and now she does not want to sell me the puppy because I asked for a vet exam prior to driving 12 hrs to Nashville Tennessee. I was promised a AKC Registered pomeranian, come to find out she is not even in the American Kennel Club's system.
 I have her phone no. and city and state if Kim needs some info. I don't know what to do myself.

Kim Johnson contact Della Monroe on facebook Crystal Michigan, Please!!

I am the real Kim Johnson

AUTHOR: kjaussies - (United States of America)

First of all I did not write the above report on Bearpath/Mystic Mini Aussies or whatever kennel name she is calling herself now.  Not only am I not involved with rescue now but don't know anyone who currently owns one of your so called dogs.   As far as your lies about me having access to money for MARS or MASCA they are lies and you can answer for them. Anyone who knows me and my dogs knows that I would not associate myself with a backyard puppy mill such as yourself.  My previous reputation in rescue speaks for itself along with my breeding program.   I appauld the person in rescue who called you out for your behavior and the disgrace you are to the breed.  I also will be more than happy to share the complaint filed on you with the breed club regarding your killing your dogs because you had to many and your emails.  Buyer beware, if you want an unsocialized, fake health tested dog this is the place to go. SANDY GOLDSCHMIT is all over Rip-Off report for her lies, and complaints of people who have dealt with this lunatic.  Another post here regarding my reputation and you will see me in court as you are nothing but a LIAR.  The real Kim Johnson Hinesville GA

/Kim Johnson MASCA RESCUE MARS

AUTHOR: unlisted - (United States of America)

I don't see anywhere where I threaten to sue you BUT it's not a Bad Idea. As I said before if you don't have the BALLS to put you name down KIM JOHNSON then SHUT UP!!!

I truly am getting tired of your fictional mind. If you truly are a RESCUE person then you have way too much time on your hands,your POOR DOGS!

The dog with the patella problem came from Kathryn Ploen of PLOEN AUSSIES in Iowa, the dog with Cancer came from Davis Aussies in Alabama,I was not the breeder on either of those dogs.I really am thru with your childish behavior.I owe neither you nor anyone else KIM JOHNSON of DYNASTY Aussies any explaination,but you got one. But I gave you one
As far as getting your facts straight, perhaps a person such as yourself should not stoop to the level  you are at. You really need to be taking care of your dogs instead of harassing me.

MASCA  & MARS treasury and funds from Rescue were misused and a audit certainly SHOULD be in order with both MASCA & MARS. Confidential Information was given out by KIM JOHNSON funds were misused .

Once again, I am not Kim Johnson

AUTHOR: KenneRae - (USA)

If you will look at my tag line, you will see I am in Kennesaw and not Savannah where Kim is located.  So your accusations and threats to sue are unfounded.  Besides the dog you reference with bad hips, what about the dog with luxating patellas, the dog that died prematurely of cancer, the dog my coworker bought with chornic eye issues, the dog an acquaintance owns with a terrible temperament and much smaller than a Mini Aussie should be and the dog turned into my rescue 4 months ago from your kennel.  No one who has purchased a dog from you that I know personally has had anything positive to say about the condition of your kennel or their experience with you.

I've seen your rebuttals and your threats to sue people - yet you never are able to refute these stories.  Incidentally the dog with bad hips you are referring to was pulled out of the Coweta County shelter in Newnan not Cobb County shelter in Kennesaw.   You should check your facts before you start throwing threats around.

I am hoping that potential puppy buyers will do their research and understand that not all breeders are created equally.  The only way to stop an irreputable breeder from continuing to make more puppies is to stop buying those puppies.  Investigate each breeder carefully.

KIM JOHNSON/MASCA RESCUE/MARS RESCUE

AUTHOR: unlisted - (United States of America)

Well it too bad you KIM JOHNSON don't have the guts to admit who you are. Now if you would like the world to know,the dog that ended up in RESCUE was put in a shelter in KENNESAW a Kill SHELTER. when Kim JOHNSON called me the dog already was sick with Kennel Cough, a VERY CONTAGIOUS and sometimes fatal disease.I had no place to quarantine this dog,KIM JOHNSON said when would take him.Both Kim JOHNSON & FRAN WITHERS DYNASTY AUSSIES liked the dog so much they asked me to write the a new set of REGISTRATION PAPERS so they could use this dog at STUD for themselves,even though IU had placed this dog as a PET,on a SPAY/NEUTER contract.Remember Kim I asked you how you could do this, and you said you would pull the dog from rescue!.They had the Veterinarian they used for the RESCUE do hip x-rays and treat the dog for a severe case of KENNEL COUGH,which RESCUE paid for.

The Veterinarian said that the Hips were not perfect,so the dog was placed by rescue in a home. Both parents were bred by another breeder not myself. If you keep this up I will start to name these breeders and you will see what happens.In a perfect world there would be no genetic defects or problems,but it's not a perfect world. I have many dogs that I HAVE BRED that are AKC CHAMPIONS,both breed and OBEDIENCE and AGILITY. MASCA GRAND CHAMPIONS,MULTIPLE BEST IN SHOW winners both Adult and Puppy,GROUP Winners,Agility Champions HERDING Champions and many more titled dogs too numerious to mention.

If I was the heartless BIT__ that you try and portray me as,everyone knows how costly it is to raise a litter of puppies why would I have gone thru the expense if my intentions were to put them to sleep???

IF you Kim Johnson don't have the balls to sign your name to a complaint then you need to shut up.

My dogs are my first pryority always have been and always will be.I have Many REPEAT customers, some are
Lawyers,Veterinarians,Doctor,Physcologist,and justeveryday folks and farmers who are VERY HAPPY 
with my dogs. SO KIM JOHNSON you have broken rules,missused funding and given out Classified
confidential information.Get a LIFE!@

I am not Kim Johnson

AUTHOR: KenneRae - (USA)

So please do not associate me with her.  She has nothing to do with this, though I know she has worked with you in the past to place your dogs.  I am yet another rescuer that has encountered your dogs in rescue.  Good breeders always accept a dog back into their breeding program.  I don't decide to bring these dogs into the world, yet I support each dog I bring into foster care for the rest of their lives.  I don't understand why you cannot do the same. 

All of this feedback came from coworkers and friends and owners of your dogs that have encountered you personally.  Yes sometimes breeder dogs turn up in rescue.  A responsible breeder would take it back into their possession, not use rescue as a dumping ground because they are overbreeding and aren't in a position to support that dog.

I am not affiliated with any breed group, MASCA or ASCA.  I am a private rescuer that appreciates helping these lovely dogs when their owners and breeders fail them.

Kim Johnson/Fran Withers of Dynasty Aussies of Michigan & Savannah Ga

AUTHOR: unlisted - (United States of America)

 It's too bad  YOU KIM JOHNSON Of DYNASTY AUSSIES of Both Michigan & Savannah Ga  hide behind an alias and manufacture incomplete truths against myself.I will not address the confidential information you have displayed on this internet site except to say that you represent MASCA the Miniature Australian Shepherd Club Of Americaand MINI AUSSIE RESCUE,as the person in charge of RESCUE & ADOPTIONS,ALL INFORMATION  is strickly confidential YOU have disgraced & betrayed the position you were put in charge of, along with the funds you responsible collect from people. . MASCA is unaware of the finances and how YOU mishandled them.All the dogs/puppies that you purchased from me for people that wanted a dog and were unwilling to pay full price. Remember Kim? I guess when you opened your mouth you forgot about that.

Every breeder from time to time has a dog end up in a shelter,if they are unable to take it back then sometimes it goes into Rescue.As far as size and personality NO ONE can guarantee size or personality, unless it's like your contract,where you charge them XXXXX $$$$$$ and lock them into a situation they can not get out of,for years and so many litters down the road.

I cannot say all my dogs I have ever produced are 100% but I do my Health Clearances Hips/Eyes OFA'd Cerf'd and Penn Hipps, that is all I can do. I offer a guarantee for this and have NEVER had to but one dog,the mother was not my breeding, and she was never used again in my program,this is the  dog that you refered to as having luxating patellas.I can't blame that on the dog as the owner started jogging the puppy against my recommendations at 3 months of age!

     The litter of mixed breed puppies you refered to (Aussie Mixed) was placed at a LOCAL SHELTER as your friend and Circuit Court Judge CARLA,should have told you. AGAIN you repeat inaccurate information.This new shelter was more then happy to take them.All CONFIDENTIAL information I might add.
