Ms. Van Laan is the sole owner of a dog breeding business, Acura Cockapoos, in Irmo, SC at her home where she only allows her clients to pay in cash. She runs her business through her online website, I have knowledge that she has been extensively lying about the profit she makes for tax purposes to receive unfair college grants and loans for her son attending the University of South Carolina. She has the ability to fabricate the number of dogs that are born and sold and at what prices. Ms. Van Laan finds these deceptive actions humorous and tends to brag to others about how she found a way around paying income taxes and college tuition honestly. I know much more about this situation and would be happy to assist anyone in their concerns with this business.

You are not a truthful person Dee

AUTHOR: Karla - ()

I am here using my real name. You lie a lot Dee and pretty much everyone knows it, especially the people who were your friends that you have stabbed in the back one way or another! Me being one of them...You ony have ONE kid, and he is in college so how can he help you with your breeding business? So it is only you and your boyfriend.

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 at a time. 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. I believe you are past that time of starting to do the right thing Dee.
