Put the following into your Google search bar and you will get a ton of results of past discussions here on dt. In short, stay far far far away. This is one of the worst "breeders" out there.

Hi Mark.

What part of the country do you reside in?. My best and only advice is to take your time and do your research. As Greenkouki commented above, this is a kennel that I would never consider for a Dobe pup.

When looking for a Doberman pup, patience and knowledge are virtues. Please keep in touch.

Best to you

First Doberman Puppy

Just looking for some guidance and feedback here as I am helping my daughter find her first Doberman puppy. I posted on the Breeders section of the forum and had a couple responses and it looks like there is much more activity in this section.

I saw some older posts on a couple different site forums regarding Irina Barrett and Canis Maximus Kennels in VA and WV. Just looking for any feedback on her and her dogs as this is our first time looking. Thanks

Mark,

If this does not deter you from supporting this "breeder" I honestly don't know what can. https://www.dobermantalk.com/breedin...art-1-2-a.html

Makes me terribly sad and want to vomit at the same time. And to think there's people out there that would defend her too.

Copying the text just in case the link to the report goes offline:

From this news report: https://www.fauquier.com/news/kennel...OgXcHOvKMLSoME
___________________________
Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office deputies seized more than 70 dogs on Tuesday, Jan. 28 -- mostly Doberman pinchers and French bulldogs -- from the Canis Maximus kennel, 6205 Beverleys Mill Road in Broad Run. More than 50 poultry and other companion animals were also removed.

Sgt. James Hartman of the FCSO said, “The dogs were found to be in inadequate conditions and suffering from neglect, without access to food and water. The dogs were seized and taken to the Fauquier SPCA for care and shelter. In addition, several deceased animals, both dogs and poultry, were located on the property.”

Irina Barrett, 41, owner of the Canis Maximus kennel in Broad Run was arrested Tuesday, Jan. 28 on one felony charge of cruelty to animals resulting in death and one charge of misdemeanor neglect of companion animals.

Barrett was held on a $2,500 secured bond at the time of her arrest. Future charges are anticipated as the investigation continues.

The police investigation began earlier this month, according to the search warrant, when a female Doberman pincher puppy named Yeva was left unclaimed at the Main Street Veterinary Hospital in Reisterstown, Maryland. The dog died.

The Baltimore County Police Department conducted an investigation and determined that the dog exhibited signs of prolonged neglect. It was reported that the puppy was owned by Irina Barrett, owner of the Canis Maximus kennel.

The search warrant quotes a Fauquier County deputy, “I have also viewed Yeva … which … appears emaciated and neglected …”

Hartman said that the deceased dog “was transferred to the Fauquier Health Department Agriculture Laboratory for necropsy. Animal Control deputies sought a search warrant for evidence of long-term cruelty and neglect possibly contributing to death. Preliminary results determined the dog did not receive adequate care and endured extreme suffering.”

The kennel has been accused of animal neglect before. In a Jan. 22 Fauquier Times article, Fauquier County humane investigator Hilleary Bogley said that she was the court-appointed humane investigator in January of 2013 during a contentious case of allegations of abuse and neglect at Canis Maximus, which at the time was requesting a rezoning permit by the Fauquier County Board of Zoning Appeals.


In the report filed by Bogley, she described the kennel as a puppy mill -- defined by the Humane Society of the United States as an inhumane, commercial dog-breeding facility in which the health of the dogs is disregarded in order to maintain a low overhead and maximize profits.

Bogley’s report provided details about numerous medical issues in the dogs at the kennel, and cramped and filthy conditions.

Bogley’s report said, in part, “We … walked around the house to a room to the right of the garage where there were two 6-foot by 6-foot kennels. There was no ventilation in this room and again a strong stench of urine and feces filled the air. The walls were streaked in mud and feces. Both pens had urine-soaked newspapers with a good amount of urine and feces. The dogs were unable to get out of their own waste.

“In the first pen there were four teenage Doberman puppies all that had dirty bandages on their ears from a current ear cropping surgery. In the second pen there were eight teenage Great Dane puppies. Several of the Dane puppies looked underweight, acted fearful/unsocialized, and several had severe to moderate hair loss/lesions that appeared to be generalized demodectic mange.”

The report stated, “none of the dogs had food or water bowls or access to water and she [Barrett] explained that they make too big of a mess when they are permitted to have water so she only allows them to drink three or four times a day when she offers water.”


Bogley reported at the time that there were approximately 50 dogs housed at Barrett’s home.

At that time, Bogley recommended that the Board of Zoning Appeals grant the Canis Maximum kennel owner a license for no more than 12 dogs. The kennel owner sued Bogley and the foundation for $1.35 million for defamation in response to the report. Bogley said that the kennel owner ultimately surrendered 12 of her dogs to the Middleburg Humane Foundation for adoption. Her request for rezoning was denied 5-0. The lawsuit against Bogley and MHF was ultimately dismissed.

In the current investigation, Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control received assistance from the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office, Fauquier County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Fauquier County SPCA and the Virginia Attorney General’s Office Animal Law Unit.

I wonder who brought the puppy up here? Very interesting.

May she rot for this crap.
