What do i do about the rest? If they wont sell the adults you cant steal them. Like i said i am going to contact the countys animal control tomarrow to have them check into the situation.
But truth be told this goes on everywhere. If he is properly caring for his dogs and breeding them in humane conditions nothing can be done anyways. Puppymills are USDA liceanced and allowed the breed hundereds of puppies and sell them as long as they meet the required care for the mother and puppies. So besides have AC check into the situation and if all checks out nothing more can be done.
Like i said previously i fostered for a rescue many years ago the things ive seen in that time span and no one can do anything about it other then be thankful you made a difference in those dogs lifes you have made better. If i didnt take those two pups someone else would have for more money and probably ending up breeding them. Theres so many things we can say might have happened or will happened.
Im not trying to be a ass or hard to deal with. Im just asking besides contacting animal control and if they cant do nothing what more can someone do? This happens alot around here and all to often.
To the two parts I bolded:
The first is a fantasy folks tell themselves so they can feel all noble about the unethical action they took--by buying greeder puppies.
The second--what more can a person do? They can NOT EVER BUY FROM SCUM LIKE THIS. And they can instead adopt from a reputable rescue or pull from a shelter or do their due diligence, save their money, and buy from an ethical breeder.
I will update it, Im having them checked by the vet in the morning as well. See what kinda parasites are in there cause im sure there in there. I already gave them a mild wormer my vet gave me 2 months ago. Its fine to use on puppies 2 pounds or more being 3 weeks plus.
I think im going to name the little guy Thor. I hate them being just nameless puppies.
But thanks for everyone being more understanding. I just hate feelings like im the one who are doing wrong when im not. Ive been doing alot of online research on raising dobies and reading topics on this forum.
To the bold: You already DID do wrong, and you cannot undo it. And folks won't let it go when you're unapologetic and even trying to paint the pretty little lie that you are a rescuer.
If you were a real rescuer, you'd know better.
See i thought all states is 6 weeks non breeders and 8 weeks for breeders. Apparently according to meldrew that law does apply in Arkansas. Which really doesnt suprise me one bit. Its not uncommon to see dead dogs hit by cars on a daily basis. People actually set up on street corners and walmarts selling there puppies and dump what they dont see. At my local walmart currently theres this old female terrier mix dog who has a football sized tumor hanging from her milk bags looking for food and has been there for over a year. No one can catch her. If our AC could catch her she would be held 3 days then put down. They do not do adoptions. They just put them down in 3 days if owners dont claim.
So thats why i dont believe contacting animal control will do any good but like i said ill honor my statement and make the call and give what little information i have. Arkansas really dont care about animals. 2yrs ago i was at the next downs animal shelter and they had 3 adult dobies there with ears croped nice looking dogs. But deemed unadoptable and were either PTS or live there lifes there in a kennel.
But anyways the names public so have yourself a blast and stop painting me as the bad person here. To answer the other posters question. No i did not look at registration papers prior to taking them home. I looked briefly, But was going to write down DOB for the vet visits tomarrow and found out he isnt 4 weeks till the 16th.
My question being though would anyone even care if there were just mutts? Or is this treatment simply because there dobermans.
Either way now that everyone has all the information out in the open id appreciate if i ever post again for information in regards to raising or training a doberman properly they not be blown up into your a horrible person for buying a byb puppy. Im not the only one on this forum that has bought a puppy from what everyone deems a reputable breeder.
The situation is already done and over.
The situation isn't done and over, until you quit defending your bad choices.
I haven't seen one person get onto you for the care of the puppies
, which is what you keep trying to make it about.
What folks here find appalling is your attitude about having rewarded pure scum with your money.
To the sentence I bolded: How do you have puppies for sale...and not
be a "breeder"?
Pups should not leave Mom until eight weeks, and hopefully at some point it will be Federal law.
