Wow...I am disingenuous, being spell checked, and asked if I am a PETA member?
No. I am not a PETA card carrying member as I still like my bacon. But, they do some good in the world, I would say. At least they believe in something...
As for being disingenuous, what would my motives be here? I was a bit hesitant when I wrote at first because I knew there would be those out there that would respond in this manner. Always is. I came onto this board to see if anyone had any information on this kennel, which people have and have private messaged me about, and to see if this Doberman community cared about puppy mills, ethical breeding and the betterment of the breed. I am also truly looking to add a Doberman to our family, and have found lots of great information on this site and read with great interest the articles and what some of you think is important in breeding, etc. I haven't owned a Doberman in quite some time as I haven't had the time to train one properly with small children, job, etc...I think they are a breed with such an amazing mind the more you can work with them, the better they are...
I am grateful to those of you that were able to see what it is I am talking about, and addressed the apathy all around...
The purchasers are afraid of some of the legalese in the contracts that state they will not "slander" the kennel. That they will not take legal action, no matter what and a mediator would be used in the possible situation of a disagreement. A judge would not uphold this, if it ever came to court. One reason being the very first line of the contract states that you received a puppy from a loving, clean and wholesome environment, when no one that I have spoken to has actually seen the place as they don't advertise a website, an address or a telephone that they answer. Most everything is done by email. Some purchasers have forwarded on to me some threatening emails from the breeder in response to a complaint. Legal threats, not physical!
Anyway, I know I sleep well at night, and I know that I have helped many animals and people too, so you can try to be all "hinkydar-ed" by my comments. I have assisted many animal causes that I believe in, as well as human ones, and I am not ashamed of that. For the past few years it has been the slaughter of horses and the round ups of the wild mustangs.
I hope you have something you believe in, and that you aren't afraid to write about it, talk about it, bring it to forums that are supposed to be about discourse.
People have started to write to me about their experiences and asking what they can do about it because of what I did write on this forum, so it has been all good.
