Was there last weekend for the auction. The farm has been sold. I'll assume you haven't been there in a while.

Clearly, you are using the word "spectacular" in a context that is unfamiliar to me.

As far as I'm concerned, "spectacular" is not a word I would use to describe a breeder who was suspended from the AKC for falsifying registration paperwork on her dogs. It's also not a word I would use for a breeder who has consistently failed her annual inspections from the Department of Agriculture - before Biden ever bought from her.

I've had a personal experience with this place, and I would NEVER EVER recommend it to anyone. PERIOD.

I purchased a German Shepherd from Jolindy, and I was shocked to hear that Linda was cited. Jolindy was a dog's paradise... a spectacular farm with rolling hills, acres of grass with large fenced areas for the dogs to run in. When her father died, Linda spent her inheritance on a heated in-ground pool for the dogs. It was a very clean operation. The dogs are very well cared for and they are just beautiful. The only problem we have with our amazing German Shepherd is that she was spoiled by being weaned onto ground beef and rice, and she has never really had a taste for dog food. She is the smartest, most amazing and beautiful German Shepherd I have ever met. She is everything you could want in a dog... a great protector, but a loving and sweet friend. She came from very good lineage.

If you go to Jolindy's Facebook page you'll see post after post from satisfied customers... and lots of beautiful GSDs... like ours.

It seems that everyone has simply reached the conclusion that Jolindy is a "puppy mill" because of the number of litters produced each year. Had any of you actually taken the time to visit or talk to anyone who has you might understand how quantity doesn't necessarily equate to a lack of quality. Linda had a large operation, but she had the space, the facilities, the expertise and the help needed to run a large, but high quality dog breeding operation.
I can tell you right now that she is NOT breeding proven, titled working dads (or show line dog for those in the show world), therefor she IS a puppy mill and has NO right breeding unproven dogs!

BYBs and Puppy Mills are the downfall of every breed out there! Breeding dogs with health and temperament problems, dogs that don't fit what the breed SHOULD be, dogs that only bring the breed down.

Yes, you CAN get lucky. I purchased Zeke out of a newspaper, and outside of a few minor health issues (GENETIC, might I add), he is an AMAZING dog. Smart, social, well trained, beautiful, etc... I got lucky. I also got Luther out of the newspaper, and ended up with an aggressive fear biter that had to be euthanized after 3.5 years of pure ****, after the poor dog suffered endlessly due to unsound nerves, after my poor furniture and carpet suffered endlessly, and after a few of my cats suffered endlessly (one even resulting in death).

No one has ANY business producing dogs the way she does. Even if they are all taken care of on her property, she is breeding animals that should not be bred, clogging rescues and shelters that should not be clogged, and contributing first hand to the 4 million homeless dogs euthanized every year in this country alone.

I am all for breeders, because I love purebred shepherds. But you can guarantee the only breeders I will deal with in the future, will NOT be producing dogs like her, will NOT have dogs ending up in rescues like hers, will NOT be like her.
