Buyers Beware of this kennel for purchase.
You might be buying more than you bargained for

The owner has a lengthy record, unpleasant history around Winsome kennels operation. With several confirmed reports from the SPCA, local sunshine coast vets, brokers, multiple other breeders, and buyers that have all been victims or have witnessed unhealthy dogs in some way or form from this kennel.

BEWARE OF BARGAIN PRICES. Owners motive is to flog hundreds of puppies and make a quick sale. You might be buying yourself thousands of dollars in vet bills, future grief and sorrow. All puppies are cute, it's ok to say no, You are not saving a cute puppy but only encouraging glorified puppy mills.

Puppies from large commercial kennels often have Kennel Syndrome. Confirmed causes of shy and fearful puppies from Winsome Kennels, common signs of Kennel Syndrome.

Owner continues to blame other people and breeders for truthful facts posted about his sales methods and kennel. Facts and write ups prove to be truthful with little investigation about Winsome Kennels.

Request proof of health testing, and the vets contact numbers to where winsome kennels 70 breeding dogs have been health tested. The vet office used by Winsome Kennels has responded. Confirming they have never tested any of his dogs, also backed by Jamie admitting to not testing his dogs.

This is why Jamie does not list health testing scores on his web site or is listed with any clubs that require proof of genetic health screening. Facts are out, Winsome Kennels dogs are not health tested as advertised on the internet.

Intentional lies to mislead the public, (FRAUDULENT SALES) Buyers are learning the truth the hard way. Buyers discovering health problems as their dogs get older. 10 month old puppies limping to be confirmed by X-rayed to have either genetic hip or elbow dysplasia. Puppies that are barking at people because they can't see clearly because of genetic cataracts. Puppies and adults with heart murmurs and skin allergies to cancer.

Offering allergy friendly non shedding puppies for sale for new owners to learn the hard way they shed and Jamie won't take the dog back as promissed. False health guarantees that are not honored or signed by the kennels owner.

Beware over the purchase of puppies or buying this kennel.

If you purchase Winsome Kennels make sure that all the sales contracts and law suits stay in Jamie's Sheppard's name. You must have a legal contact written up and have Mr. Sheppard sign it. Request that Jamie Sheppard is responsible for any past business related legal matters costs and guarantees before the date of purchase.

Beware of on going By-Law rezoning problems, 2009 By-laws do not allow a kennel operation at this location. Make sure that all business transaction are completed and paid for by Jamie Sheppard. Or he could skip town with your money and leave you with pages of legal problems and debt.

Look into unpaid for animals, employee wages, taxes and law suits and zoning. This could all be included when you purchase this kennel.

Posting on Winsome Kennels web site

Message from the owner: We are professional commercial breeders who produce 300-400 puppies a year from health tested parents. We have a proven track record for more than a decade without any serious health issues and certainly no negative reports on the internet. Towards the end of 2008 another breeder started a campaign to discredit us calling us Scam artists & Con artists and saying our dogs were not tested, after we successfully defended ourselves in a frivolous court case and then entered her market place adopting out puppies on a weekly basis. We are very proud of our kennel, the puppies our Moms produce, the staff that work with us, and the testimonials that clients have sent us. Take a virtual tour to view our labour of love.

Reponses: The owner to this kennel continues to blame others rather than take responsibility even trying to sell his kennel and leave. Buyers beware, do your research request proof and you will find out the truth.

Contact any Sunshine Coast Vet office and ask them if they would recommend this breeder. We called them all and they said NO.

We contacted the Surrey Vet Animal Hospital that Jamie Sheppard using to ask about health testing he claims for each one of his breeding dogs. The vet clinic confirmed they have never health tested any of his dogs. But only see hundreds of puppies a year from him.

We went to our local court house and was shocked to find out their was over 20 pages of law suits against Jamie Sheppard of Roberts Creek. Questions you must ask yourself? Why are so many people suing him? Is this a trust worthy person? Will he be around to honor your guarantee.

We contacted several breeders to which Jamie has blamed for his problems. We were provided with legal documents showing court settlements not awarded to Winsome Kennels but the other breeders.

Lists and names of people that have cried after visiting this kennel. People horrified to what they witnessed. Offering free shipping to avoid people visiting the kennel. Puppies having to be locked up from 8:30 pm to 8:30 Am ordered by court. Puppies housed in buried cargo containers with no windows. Adult dogs kept in small cages and crates on hard floors. Puppies crying and barking for attention. Sad begging eyes, crying for someone to save them.

It does not take anyone long to find out the truth or facts about winsome kennels owner that is talked about as a known professional Con-Artist and bully.

We recommend the public to call the Surrey Animal Hospital to confirm no health testing done on adult winsome Kennels dogs as Jamie Sheppard advertises.
Second we recommend going to your local court house and researching Jamie Sheppard of Roberts Creek owner of Winsome Kennels to confirm pages of law suits.

We also recommend you visit North Americans recommended Golden doodle and Labradoodle site. Such clubs exist to weed out back yard breeders and puppy mills. Clubs that require you to fully health test your breeding dogs and provide proof.

Winsome Kennels is not listed or a recommended breeder. http://www.goldendoodles.com/home.htm

DO NOT BUY ON A WHIM, DO YOUR RESEARCH, SEEK THE TRUTH.
YOU ARE NOT SAVING A PUPPY OR ADULT BUT ONLY ENCOURAGING OPERATIONS LIKE THIS TO CONTINUE.

Public beware

Facts

POSTED: Monday, August 03, 2009
The one fact that stands out clearly to most readers is that the breeder (competitor) who continues to post these malicious threads is an obsessed stalker. Just read the other rip-off reports and you will see the commonality of her rants. Cataracts in a 10 month old puppy? Give me a break!
