This place should be reported to PETA or some other animal advocay group.  

I had many suspicions after I bought my dog from there.  First, my dog had giardia and coccidia when she delivered it to me.  I contacted her and she told me my dog must've gotten it after I had her and not from her.  LIE!  

I also asked her to see pictures of her facilities and where she kept her dogs because I live across the country and could not come and see for myself.  She got defensive and kept asking me why I wanted to see them and said PETA would be all over her if she started posting pics of her facility.  

She told me herself that her kennels had a terrible case of PARVO one year and all her puppies died.  

DO NOT buy from this "breeder".  Go to your local shelter or do an internet search for a particular breed's recue group to find your dog.  She obviously does not care about the animals.  

From the other reports I've read on here, the conditions at her kennel sound horrendous!  She should be SHUT DOWN. Action needs to be taken.

Carla is correct!

AUTHOR: Former confidante - ()

Everything mentioned above it true. The owner is very open about her exploits, particularly during her daily cocktail hours. The biggest concern I have is her admitted practice of placing newborn or young pups that she feels are not worth the effort to nurse to health in a bag in her freezer, ALIVE. She justifies this by explaining its painless and humane. So is a visit to the vet for proper euthanasia if the QUALIFIED VET deemed is appropiate. Oh, the freezer is free! PETA anyone?

I know this breeder personally, terrible person

AUTHOR: Karla - ()

I, unlike Dee am here using my real name. I recently saw a ripoff report on me and I don't even breed any more. She has followed me around for years harassing me on the net and I have just kep quiet, but not any more. We used to be best friends, or so I thought. She writes bad reports on people, other breeders like me.

I know SO many secrets about this woman and she indeed had a huge breakout of parvo and had to put a lot of pups down. All the bad things I have been reading about her are ALL true. I had gotten a couple of pups from her and one came to me with kennel cough, and another with giardia. I also sold her 2 cocker pups and never got a dime, one she sold to another breeder friend of hers. Hey are no longer friends either.

She used to go around buying dogs and telling them she was not a breeder and often either used a fake name, or had a friend of hers buy the dogs for her once breeders started catching on to her.

Yes this is hearsay, but all I can do is be honest with the things she has told me her self. I cut off my friendship with her about 3 years ago and she continued to email me once in a blue moon saying all kinds of crazy things. She would tell me I need to accept Jesus, that I need professional help, and on and on. She even went as far as to call animal control on ME! And made reports on this site, one just recently saying I was breeding cockapoos again, which I am not. My health is very poor and I cannot care for a ton of dogs and pups.

Things always come back around. I told someone once I had a brain tumor to get her off my back, I don't recall it all now. But now as I sit here and type, last year, Aug 2012 they actually found a brain tumor in my pituitary gland. Benign thank God, but it has hurt my health. I guess I always thought I had one because of the years of migraines. But see, I told a lie and now that lie is fact. So I can assure you, her life is not good because like I said, things come back around and bite you in the back side.

I am only here today to back up the people who have complained about her. And I can assure you that she is using fake names to post the rebuttals on here and elsewhere. I recognize her writing type. I am sure she has many happy clients, but you can bet she has many, many, unhappy ones as well.

As far as what I read about her having a mother dog get into the kennel of another new mother dog and killing the puppies, this is indeed true, she told me herself! You believe what you want. It is very sad to me to see so many dogs stuck in kennels the way she has done.

When I was breeding I never had more than 5 breeding females and 1 stud. She does go through a lot of dogs and does breed dogs that are of poor temperament, but I have known her to get rid of them by giving them off to the pound or putting down, and even re-selling them as healthy breeding dogs.

Nobody is perfect, but there comes a time to own up to your wrongs, and start to do right.
