After several years of dealing with Pat Rochstroh, I learned how she is running a puppy mill for cocker spaniels. On several occasions I had to return a pup for one reason or another, the only way was to exchange for a different pup, never a refund. I would always try to get a better bred, better quality puppy. I have never had one live for more than 5 years from this breeder.
The last puppy I purchased was one from a sable/white stud, suppose to have champion bloodlines, and purchased for showing & breeding. The dog is worthless now, he has seizures, which are hereditary. Sire was Sebastians Joker Poker. I used my stud for breeding once, to my own female, also purchased for a large sum of money from Pat. In the litter of 8 puppies, one of them is now also having seizures.
When I confronted Pat Rockstroh, she told me it was my problem & if I did anything against her, I would be sued for slandering her. She refused any kind of compensation. Prior, I was promised help in selling my puppies, but she took over half of the sale of each puppy she sold, and did not pay me for two of the puppies she sold for me. I had nothing in writing for the selling, so I was out the money.
All people be warned, if it looks too good to be true, it definately is. Later I found out how poorly her dogs live, in very tiny metal cages. I was able to see that the 'breeding' females were not socialized or excercised. She may keep a clean facility on the outside, but be warned on how the animals really live. She only allows public to see a couple of her studs, that she keeps in the house.
Pat Rockstroh also works with several other people, who house her dogs in different parts of the state, they bring the puppies down to her to sell. So this not a one facility breeding mill. That is why she always has so many puppies ALL the time.
Females are over bred, and under cared for. The public is never allowed to see how she really cares for the breeding dogs that she does have. After talking to people that used to work for her, they confirmed how poorly these animals are treated. They do get fed well, but are not cared for or socialized like dogs need to be, so they are very aggressive & timid to strange people....that is not a cocker spaniel trait.
Trust the cocker breeders that ask for a reference, they truley care where their puppies go to. When Pat takes payment arraingements, she is known to loose payments, over charging the writen contract price! Be warned this is a very decieteful, money hungry mongrel!
Make sure you have anything to prove your point from pictures, or even the humane society laws that you can go over with her and show her how many things shes doing wrong. For example, hers just a few laws of the HSUS you could present that shes breaking:
Human supervision and presence is provided on a regular, and daily, basis.
Adequate shelter, fresh food, and clean water are available.
Every animal is given daily exercise, and is not continuously tethered.
Every animal is given the appropriate immunization.
Every animal has the appropriate license and identification.
Every animal is recommended to be spayed or neutered.
And just be prepared to put up a good fight. I'm really glad your doing this, it is about time someone did. Please let me know how things turn out!
