I have been contacted by a man who bought a puppy from a local breeder, only to have it die of parvo a few days later.
He is looking for others who bought a puppy from this breeder that died or had been very ill from parvo.

If you or someone you know has had a similar experience please contact me at karen@soonews.ca.

I don't want to give out the breeder's name on here or it will have to be deleted so please don't refer to anyone specific on this bulletin board. We can discuss this once you have contacted me.

Thank you for your time.

It is one of those small mixed breeds that a lot of puppy mills and backyard breeders are selling to make a fast buck.

Okay I just read your article. That is absolutely awful. I live in the Desbarats area and that's just a little close to home. Hopefully we are able to do something to stop these so called breeders from raising sick little puppies. I just can't get over that. Good luck Karen, I know you don't give up.

thanks zoocrew.and don't worry I won't give up. I recently met a man who had what he called a "purebred" yorkie. i asked him where he got it and he got it from this same breeder. The breeder had told him it was a purebred.The dog had colors of a yorkie, but actually it looked like a chihauhau with an orange mustache.
I wonder if this guy even knew what a yorkie was.

I'm still getting emails about this breeder and the health issues that they have with their dogs.

there are a few people in the Desbarats area and beyond who are selling animals that are not what they were advertised as. you probably know a few of them Zoo, I feel fo these animals because I know they are nnot being properly cared for. One person is well known for her cruelty to animals but she's still going strong.

I wish we had better animal protection laws. it could make such a difference.

It really just makes me frustrated and angry, because the powers that be who have the authority to do something about it, choose to not get involved. after all what else are we to think, when it is well known among animal lovers all over the city, that regardless of the laws that exist, no one enforces the laws we already have. I have heard this same statement said over and over again, when I come across people who have such terrible and sad stories to share. I know we have bylaws and I know there are animal cruelty laws, what I dont know is why these stories repeatedly crop up in here, and there is never any justice for anyone who becomes victimized by these back yard breeders.

I hope any one who knows anything or has information that could provide proof or evidence in these cases step up to the plate as a group and support one another in taking a stand and helping to have charges laid against the guilty parties.

Good luck. And pass the word sooneters lets help make a case to make this abusive cycle stop.

thank You Totally wicked.
the more voices that speak up, the better.

I'm trying to find as many people as I can who got a sick or dying puppy from these people,

Maybe this time we can collectively get enough people to stand up and publicize the conmditons and actions of these unscrupulous breeders.
