This is not an ethical breeder.
Her main breeding female "Sugar" has a severe "gay tail" to
the point of looking more like a husky than a pure breed German Shepherd. She
also photo-shopped images of this dog to hide the very obvious tail problem.
Besides this, Sugar is also not OFA tested which is absolute standard for
ethical White Shepherd breeders.
When attempting to buy a dog from her I was promised the "pick of the
litter" for $1600. As it got closer to the time to pick up my puppy she
started changing and manipulating her story. She said she never promised me the
pick of the litter and she would only sell a dog for a minimum of $1800. This
means I would be stuck paying more money for a sub par dog. This puppy would
not come with a full AKC registration like originally promised. We also tried
several times to visit her facility to no avail. She claimed that we could come
see her dogs but every time we tried to arrange things she was "busy"
or it was not convenient for her. [continued below]....

As I began to look into Ruth and her business habits more in-depth, I found a
lot more red flags. In looking at the past pictures and descriptions of her
previous litters, it was obvious that she was recycling the pictures of the
same dogs. She also uses the same descriptions of their
"temperaments". The temperament test that they use is not a legit
test. It says right on her site that it is a process that they made up. She
claims to be in good standing with the American White Shepherd Association (AWSA)
however this is not true. After contacting representatives from this
organization I was informed that there were several complaints launched against
her within the last few years. She is also not following the code of ethics
provided by the AWSA.
In talking with other people that have had negative experiences with Ruth I
have heard several unethical stories of what she did to them. This includes but
is not limited to selling a puppy with no shot records, refusing to provide
registration papers, falsifying their buying agreement, selling an extremely
She also seems to have no problems breeding dogs that are full siblings. Her
dogs Prince Caspian and Queen Qali have the same parents. She just recently
had a second litter with this pair despite the fact that they are full siblings.
Please dont support this breeder. Please don't waist your money!
