Breeders to avoid

I was just reading my email from the US Humane Society with their list of the 100 worst dog breeders (and I use that term loosely, as these are puppy mills, not reputable breeders), and noticed a couple that specialize in GSDs. Since people often post here asking how to find a reputable breeder, or asking about people’s experiences with particular breeders, I thought some of those prospective buyers might like to know of breeders to avoid. (Plus, the cruelty these people inflict is so infuriating; they deserve to be called out.)

I don’t know if posting the names of these kennels is allowed here (I suppose someone will tell me if it isn’t), but these are people with multiple and repeat violations of humane laws, as reported by USDA inspectors, not just me complaining about a breeder I didn’t like.

Most of the kennels raise many breeds of dog, so I just highlighted a couple that specifically mentioned GSDs.

Also, this is by no means a comprehensive list of abusive breeders. Most puppy mills operate under the radar and are never inspected. These are just the ones known by the HSUS. Always do your research and only buy from breeders that show you health records and let you see where the pups are born and raised. (Rescue is, of course, different, as they can’t show you that. There are apparently some bogus rescue groups out there too, though, so I would still only adopt from an organization that lets me see their facility or foster home.)

Here’s what I copied. The complete list, if you are interested, is available at the humanesociety.org website:

and yet some of these people are constantly recommended here. People switch their dog's ownerships to a relative and continue on with no repercussions usually - and certainly show no remorse!

Didn't even know there was a ************* here in MD. And apparently they claim that they sold Presidential candidate Joe Biden his GSD.

Why are people linking to an organization that considers ALL breeders puppy mills and wants to eliminate animals from our lives? Cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Actually I thought the thread may have crossed forum rules when I first saw it. But curiosity got me and I was interested to see it.

Thank you onyx'girl.

Heartbreaking how many animals have to suffer so that people can make a profit!

They did. Many years ago. That's not a secret.
