I haven't been here for a bit (busy). And something horrible has happened. The man that I repossesed Spirit from has a new dog from a different breeder. I'm scared for the poor puppy. This man's girlfriend was once a friend of mine and I tried to talk to her. I told her the condition that Spirit was in. About counting every rib by eye sight alone and the shape of her hip bones so clearly showing threw her fur. I even reminded her of the bruising on her face and hip. And the number of times she fear urinated herself the first couple of days with me. Her words to me.
"She pissed herself because you are a backyard breeder who bred a good dog (Achia, poor conformation, good temperament) with an apparently bad dog, with no apparent knowledge, just to make a fast bucks. Scott never hit snowball. She adored him. He was broken hearted when you took her. But that's okay....he has a dog far superior now, an excellent representation of the breed, amazing conformation, rock solid nerves, calm temperament; highly intelligent!!! He understands Purity is the dog he really needs, and she has bonded to him super tight already. Hundreds of witness can tell that he is good to dogs."
I didn't breed show quality. I use to breed farm purpose sheps. This meant moving away from the show appearance and focusing on the work appearance. The male that we breed our sweet Achia to was a champion not in the akc ring but in specialized contests designed for people who breed this dying art. And she knew this. Her nerves before she left were rock solid. She had even passed the starter pistol test with flying colors. Took one glance at it and then ignored it. She is getting back to being that way now that she is with me. But what is going to happen to this puppy. I know farm needs breeders aren't always looked at nice by akc breeders. We are just filling in one of the many areas of this breed.
I tried contacting the breeder who she got the pup from. Here is their face book https://www.facebook.com/WhiteStoneWhiteShepherdDogs
. But they refuse to do anything. Not even a response back.
They have already put this puppy (8 weeks) into a bar with loud music. The poor girl was under the table shaking like a leaf. And when the one who she is supposed to be bonded to walked over to her she about crawled out of her skin to get away from him. They have managed to get pictures of him sleeping with and cuddling with the puppy but I don't believe it. Not after what I saw.
Did I condemn 2 dogs to being abused by taking Spirit back?
