    Default Local Breeder - Timothy's Story

    Reguarding local breeder
    Please Read Timothy's story. I created a blog so I can post some of what I know.
    Karen will be doing a story on it, but I wanted my little Timothy to tell his story too.
    Thanks everyone for caring.

    It breaks my heart to hear about the poor suffering these puppies had to go through... not only being taken from their mothers (doggy) younger then they should of been but the suffering with parvo... I don`t know what i would do. I hope this puppy mill gets stopped for the sake of the animals. I am happy to know that someone is taking action and getting the word out.

    I appreciate your care and concern so much! It is not me that is important here, it is the puppies, and the mother dogs too. How much love, exercise, rest, medical help etc are these dogs getting. What we have here is a serious epidemic of Parvo that could definately affect the dogs still in that house as well as the other people who purchase puppys will be putting their homes and other animals at risk.
    As cute as these dogs are, we can not buy them from these breeders because it will increase demand. I was foolish and ignorant at the time of my purchase. I was not aware of the situation until after Timothy died. I only then realized that this seller had 7 advertisements on Kijiji (now all are removed) as well as in the newspaper and in sault this week and on usedsoo.ca

    from what i read up on this disease the virus is very hard to kill and can live for up to a year in kennels and in the yards of the dogs if they use the bathroom outside... the virus lives in the poop of the animals. Which is why it is extreamly contageous (sp) and so very fatal. I have also read that that the vaccine is pretty useless if the puppys have recieved some antibodies from the mother. I can only imagine how many other families have been hurt by this. Your doing the right thing.

    Is there anything the Humane Society can do? I hope so! I would sue this lady in small claims court!

    We went to the Humane Society on Saturday.
    Apparently there is nothing they can do.
    The woman has a kennel licence and she is outside of the City Limits where it is legal to have more thatn 3 dogs.

    We were hoping that the woman would be forced to have her other dogs checked for Parvo, but they said they can't do that.

    doesn't this 'breeder' sell pups through a house on lake street near wellington? It always has a pups for sale sign in the lawn.

    If you lend someone $20 and never see them again, It was probably worth the 20

    I didn't know that...interesting.
    she probably uses a few brokers to get rid of her dogs.

    I see she has removed her ads from kijiji, but I'm sure she'll have more up soon.

    I've been getting phone calls and e-mails all day.
    Apparently this breeder has ties to dog sellers in Blind river, Elliot Lake and god knows where else.

    And every call or e-mail had a story about illnes or defects in their dogs.
    Beware of anyone in this area who is selling poodles or mixed breed puppies.
    i am trying to find out how many others have been told lies from this woman.
    there are a lot of hurting people out there.

    I will relay any information I get.

    Would someone please pm me where this place is. I'm thinking that my sister may have dealt with her and should be notified as her dogs may have come in contact. A name and address would work.

    Thank you.

    I've PM'd you with the name.
    There are more and more people calling me. It's sickening what this woman has gotten away with.
