One of my females just turned 4 in January.  My other one turns 6 in July.  I got them both from Jennifer after my 14 year old died of CHF.  I contacted her not knowing what I know now.  After I got Payton I got at least three emails in 2 years, telling me she was not going to be breeding anymore, that she couldn't do it and would ask me if I would take a dog.  I should have done more research but thought I was doing a good thing.  Both my girls are awesome.  I paid $150 for Patches and she gave me Dottie for free. I was told that she was in great conditions and had no issues.  She told me that I had to wait for Dottie to ween her nine pups before I could get her.  We have a cabin about two hours south of where she is located.  I told her we were going to be up north over Labor Day weekend.  I knew that the pups were not going to be weened by then and I told her that I would make an extra trip up a few weeks after that to get Dottie.  Not a big deal.  She told me that Dottie was ready Labor Day weekend and that the pups had rejected her milk so we could get her.  I believed her.  Later she told me that the reason Dottie was ready was because all of her pups died of Parvo but she didn't want to tell me.   After I got Dottie I brought her to the vet and I was told she had stage two luxating patellas and a deformity on the top of her rib cage. The vet also felt that Patches and Dottie were both bred way too young, to the point where their adult teeth (especially Dottie's) never fully grew in from all the calcium that was being taken away from her and given to the puppies that she was carrying.  The reason Jenni gave me Dottie for free was because Dottie had to have an emergency C section on her when she was ready to deliver and they had to spay her right after (so of course Dot was of no use to her anymore spayed).  All I can praise her for is saving my dog's life, but that may have just been a decision made by the vet. It took Dottie a year to actually be somewhat social.  She is still very afraid of strangers.  In fact that day my mother and I picker her up, Dottie forced herself into the wheel well of Jenni's minivan because of all the fear she had.  I even said to Jenni that I didn't know if I could take her because there are so many other dogs and children in our lives.  She said she would be fine.  She was because of our patience.  About a year after we got Dottie, she emailed me offering Dottie's sister, Payton to me.  I of course said yes and agreed to even bring another one of her dogs to a woman in the Chicago land area.  The woman was showing her dogs in a dog show and I looked her up and she was a reputable breeder and ALL her dachshunds lived in her home (Big Timbers Kennel, Ohio).   After emails and phone calls over the course of a month and agreeing on the terms, payment and travel, I thought all was set.  I called and emailed her to let her know when we were going to meet.  I received no responses.  I went on her website and she was trying to sell Payton (now pregnant) for $500.  She offered me the dog and then sold her to another breeder. Then she finally emailed me back when I said something on her Facebook.  She then agreed to give me Payton after her pups were weened.  I was fine with that.  Well apparently she got a better offer and was no longer willing to sell her to me. I have every email that she sent me.  What she did not know was that an email is a legal contract. I have been in contact with a lawyer and State Officials to find out my rights.   I have also spoken with people that have dealt with her and her mother and had even worse experiences than I.  I have never been to her property because ironically she always insisted on meeting me somewhere, but I have spoken with people that have been there and from what I have heard of what they saw, it is nothing less than a puppy mill.

Jennifer - I think I was pretty reasonable in my response about Payton yesterday.  Do not call me a liar.  I have the PROOF.  And I am sorry but as a breeder, you and I fully know that Payton's rotted out teeth did not happen over a 6 month period.  The vet even said that this was YEARS of neglect.  I have pictures of her teeth and the vet reports.  I was going to post the pictures of the rib malformations on Payton and Dottie and the emails over, YES 16 months between you and I, me and a lawyer, and several other outlets I used in hopes of resolution.  But after I got Payton, as I said that was all I truly wanted in the first place, I decided it was over and moved on happily.  Bottom line is, you could have moved on as well.  Instead you have to go nuts over a little paragraph, in response to someone that wanted to share her story.  I did not call you any names, nor did I post any untruths.  So consider it dropped.  But if you feel the need to attack me again like you did last night, I will most certainly post all the PROOF I have on this website.  And then, who do you think is going to look crazy? It certainly will not be me.

Norma......seriously, 16 months?  You never once asked for that dog in the 16 month period after I told you no, I would NOT sell you the dog because I thought you were a drunk crazy lady.  I told you the dog was sold to someone else, that was that and for an entire year not ONE time did I ever hear from you at all.  And, if that dog was gone from my care for 16 months PLUS all of the months she was in Ohio with TWO other owners, you have a L-O-T of nerve to blame dental work on me.

Pay It Forward - Payton

AUTHOR: lovedogs - (USA)

I am very glad that you did not go through a terrible experience.  I would never wish a 16 month fight (January 2011 - May 2012) for a dog that was promised to you and sold behind your back.  Needless to say, after 16 months and $1800 in dental work, Payton is finally where she belongs. Healthy, happy and spoiled rotten.  That's all I ever wanted.  It's too bad it had to turn into something so ugly and drawn out.  By the way, I looked up your website.  You have beautiful dogs.

Jennifer of Dreamdachs Wisconsin

AUTHOR: Dachshund Mania - (Canada)

We bought a beautiful long hair female from Dreamdachs in 2010.  She was well trained, healthy, socialized.  We have had no problems with her health or her behaviors.  I believe that is because of the breeder, Jennifer, who did an excellent job raising her.  I have only good things to say about Jennifer Furhmann of Dreamdachs, Wisconsin.  I also have personal friends who bought several adult dogs & 1 puppy from her at the same time we bought our female, & they also have had no complaints about the dogs they bought from Jennifer.

Jennifer is a LIAR!

AUTHOR: btkdoxies - (United States of America)

She claims we are accusing and going after her when in FACT she is who started accusing me and I off course defended myself!

Fact......No vet records have ever been shown to us and I have asked numerous times for them!  The dogs I got were dirty and disgusting, tick, flea, feces and urine smelled, hadn't been bathed, Coccidia, worms and the one female DOES in fact have a chest deformity and the other one is a puppy killer and threw bad bites with every litter with Jenn and the one I had with Charm threw bad bites with a male who has NEVER thrown a bad bite on a puppy in his 6 yrs of proven breeding!  These dogs were sold to me as Excellent breeders when in fact they are meerly PET quality only.  I was embarrassed to even be associated with half of those pups since they were not of my Quality breeding!  I am a reputable breeder.....ask anyone who owns or has a pup from me and they will tell you!  I have had to bad dealings in all my breeding.....both were from people who claimed they sold me great dogs that turned out needing to be spayed and placed into pet only homes.  Ask anyone that has dealt with reputation speaks for itself.  I have CH SHOW dogs......I don't breed crappy quality pet dogs.  She claims about vets....where is her proof....I have been asking that forever!!  Talk about Stalking someone.......she has friends contact me cause she isn't allowed to.  I have called her local Sheriff's dept and I have turned her into the County for the neglect!!!  She is a puppy mill......she is pissed cause I called her out on it.  Yes I was at her home before and was so disgusted when we left I couldn't wait to get out of there!  Yes I bought a dog from her.....sweet girl......she also was only Pet quality.  I took her anyway to get her out of that CRAP hole Jen calls a home!  No running water in a disgusting run down trailer with dog cages stacked 3 high from floor to ceiling.  Sickened me.  I am used to dealing with the public so I can put on a game face and get by.  Even the girl that traveled with me that swapped dogs with Jenn was disgusted with her living conditions.  Wish I had taken more pics when I was there then!  I bought another dog cause it was a grandpup out of one of my dogs.  Only reason I bought it.  Once again.....she lied about his weight to me and no vet records what so ever accompanied him!  I never got vet records from a single dog from her and if I didn't have a heart.......I would have drove away that day without any of the dogs or pups.  I traveled 14 hrs one way tho to get 21 yr old son went with me and will attest to the conditions of her home!  Where is her vet proof....who is her vet that so called takes such good care of her dogs.....just show me the proof that I have asked for Jenn!!!  I have the proof of what I had to fork out to get the pups well!!  Parvo is common for Jenn's household....she lives with her mother and sister whom all raise dogs and they don't work.....they live off their dogs!  A reputable breeder does NOT live off their dogs!!!  Come visit my home and then go visit her home!  100% difference!  I am clean neat and disease free here....never had Parvo in my life or with a single dog!  My vet references are on my website....go visit my vet!!!  I have nothing to hide!  Those dogs are in pet homes where they belong now!  Jenn is just mad cause Norma now owns Payton!!!  Norma is a nice loving clean person!  Jenn got what she deserves and I keep begging her to TAKE ME TO COURT PLEASEEEEE!!!!!!!  Take me to court Jenn if I so called OWE you this money!  Sue me for it PLEASE!  Stop running your mouth and bashing me everywhere!  She tried to bash me on my own FB page she is trying to bash me on dog forums publicly!  All she can do is run her mouth and spout out lies!  Take me to court Jenni so we can end this once and for all!!!  I have 400 people who will back me and my reputation and care I give my dogs.  I spay/neuter if my dogs throw something that is genetic.  I spay & neuter if bad bites are born on 1 puppy!  I test for Patella issues on everyone of my dogs!  I spend thousands of dollars on professional dog handlers and dog show entries to show and finish my dogs.  I have 2 finished AKC Champions and both of them are now showing to get their Grand Championships.  I have 4 more dogs ready to enter the show ring!  I buy and breed healthy dogs that are as close to the DCA & AKC standards!  I am friends with many show judges and am respected by many show breeders and handlers throughout the US and Canada now!  So keep running your mouth and spouting out lies about me cause the truth is......THEY ARE LIES and YOU KNOW IT!  That is why you will not take me to court!!  But this was the last bit of proof that I needed for your harrassment case!  So thank you and please.....keep bashing me publicly so I can have more and more proof against you!!!  My website!  I don't run a kennel...all my dogs live inside my home except for the larger rescue dogs that I care for!

Norma Mytys is a LIAR!

AUTHOR: Dreamdachs - (United States of America)

Norma Mytys is a liar!  I never asked her to take Payton, she ASKED me to let her know if I retired her as she would like to buy her!  She bought a dog from me before and then now says that I bred the dog too young but she is a liar, I NEVER bred that dog (Patches).  Dottie had ONE litter and she was spayed as an emergency.  Dottie did NOT have any issues before she left my care.  My vets can attest to that!!!  Her pups did NOT reject her milk, she had an infection that was being treated.  She is outright lying and I have vet reports to back this up.  Dottie's pups did get parvo, I have NEVER denied that but they did NOT get it until they were seven and a half weeks of age, not before like she is lying about.  I have vet proof of ALL of that as well.  My vets had examined her patellas and she was never found to have a defect and if she got problems it was probably from being overweight or injury, etiher way Norma has NEVER provided me any such proof and there is nothing wrong with her rib cage!!!  Dottie was old enough to have a litter, was not bred on her first heat and as stated above, I NEVER bred Patches!  The reason I gave Dottie for free was to place her in a wonderful pet home, not because she had to be spayed.  She knew I bought Dottie back from a friend who decided not to raise Dachshunds any longer and I decided to have one litter with her.  Obviously, this is just her opinion and made up lies, never facts.  Dottie's life was not saved due to a decision by my vet.  Dottie was extremely social and loving with me and the people she knew and was raised with three boys and loved everyone.  Dottie was not used to being in the city and knew something was up and I can't blame the dog from hiding since she did not know what was happening!  I only emailed her to let her know about Payton BECAUSE SHE asked me to let her know if I ever decided to sell her!  Big Timbers Kennels is NOT a reputable kennel, that's the very lady that ripped me off $1600.00!!!  Please refer to the RIPOFF report I filed originally that prompted Norma and Karen to post their slandering lies on here against me!  I NEVER allowed Norma to get Payton when I found out she was drunk on the phone upstairs in her room talking me to me while her husband was downstairs.  I cannot believe she was totally smashed and still drinking while we were on the phone.  I was so turned off by her slurring words and her "I love you man, no, seriously, I love you" drunk ramblings.  She told me she wanted the dogs because she is barren.  I was so freaked out when she was drunk and said some pretty disturbing things to me, so much so that I knew I would NEVER deal with her again.  She was MY dog to do with what I choose and during that conversation I told her that I found out that Payton was in heat and she was with the stud at the time so I didn't feel comfortable selling her the dog.  She said she would take the dog anyways and if she was pregnant that she would drive the 8 hours each way to return the dog a few weeks before birthing and then come back for her when the pups were weaned.  I NEVER believed that for even on second.  Then I knew she was willing to do anything to get the dog including lying to pursuade me when I told her no, not yet.  A few days later she contacted me on Facebook and I said I would not sell her the dog and she flew off the handle and sent me a VERY nasty Facebook message.  I NEVER heard from her again until after about 11 months and then I found out she was STALKING me and spreading lies and rumors and looking desperately for her dog Patches sister that I sold to someone in Minnesota.  I personally feel that Norma is a very obsessive person and the fact that she started to stalk and harrass me definitely confirmed that.  I would tell her to not write to me and she would write anyways.  After I told her to NEVER contact me again, she called me and left me a drunken voicemail and sent me more emails.  This is one very disturbed woman. If I chose to offer the dog for sale pregnant, that was MY choice, the dog was MINE, not hers in any way, shape or form!  I did not sell Payton for nearly FOUR months AFTER I turned Norma down so that goes to prove how untruthful her statements are!!!!!  I did not sell the dog before she said something on Facebook, I sold the dog nearly FOUR months AFTER she wrote to me on Facebook, nearly four months AFTER I told her I would absolutely NOT sell her the dog.  Our emails were not a contract and the dog never transferred ownership, she's just pissed she did not get what she wanted and could not handle being rejected.  Actually, the one that gives her her "information" is the woman that ripped me off $1600.00!!!!  That very same woman who accuses me of things that are 100% untrue she has been to my property and bought a pup and liked my dogs and pups so well that she actually bought a couple more while she was here.  She later came back to me for another dog and then later one for the last dogs.  So, she was at my place twice, was never anything but nice to my face and loved my dogs and seen my setup.  She never had a problem until it came time to actually PAY for the last dogs she purchased.  I have found out that Karen Callahan will do and say ANYTHING to avoid paying for what she owes.  I have never had anything to do with my mother's business so I have no idea why those referenences would be relevant in any way, shape or form to me.  I never told Norma she could not come here and if anyone wants to know, I would be happy to give references to my vets that have been to my home numerous times over the years and to many puppy buyers that have been here and have all had happy experiences.  I have nothing to hide and I originally posted on this site to warn people of the scam that Karen Callahan pulled on me.  Norma and Karen deserve each other because they appear to be cut from the same cloth.
