Exclamation How Can We Stop BYB Breeder Kathy Reese?

Need Advice. We bought our pup from a dreaded BYB (know that now, but not at the time), by the name of Kathy Reese out of Mt. Pleasant, TX a little over a year ago. Had a bad feeling from the moment I met her and wanted to do whatever I could to get at least one dog out of her possession. We bring our new puppy home, white Doberman with cropped ears tapped up. We remove the tape to find the ears are uneven. I contact the breeder to ask which Vet performed the crop, she told me she promised him she would not give his information then hung up on me.

Here's where I start digging for more information and find on various dog groups online of other people complaining about Kathy Reese and her mistreatment of animals. I even find where she herself states that a vet showed her how to crop and therefore does so herself. She posted pictures of a pit puppy on what looks like a kitchen table that she's about to crop and then pictures of post crop. She's not a vet, how is she able to give anesthesia or is she even doing that at all?

Our white dobe is now 15 months old and starting having nose bleeds, I take her to vet to find out she has nasal carcinoma. My vet, the oncologist, and surgeon each stated they have never seen nor heard of a dog under the age of 11yrs having such cancer. The oncologist said this has to be in her DNA and likely from poor breeding.

On another site, a user types "Kathy Reese is an abomination to the Doberman world and needs to be shut down. She purposely breeds unhealthy dogs solely for profit and inbreeds to produce "rare white Dobermans" only so she call sell for well over $1,000 each. "

The oncologist stated DNA or in other words "poor breeding" is the only explanation our baby has cancer before she's even full grown and it's highly likely her parents are siblings. To date, we've spent well over $6,600 for cancer treatments, we picked her up yesterday from surgery. She'll need 2 weeks to recover then start radiation which is anticipated cost around an additional $6,500.

Another site shows a picture of a puppy someone bought from Kathy with deformed legs, it's absolutely heartbreaking.
Google Kathy Reese Mt Pleasant and you'll start to see where there are numerous other's trying to stop this woman. Uses the email address [email protected] if you search that you’ll find some things as well. Kathy Reese, Kathryn Reese, Kathy Reese-Poole, K Lynn Poole are other names she has gone by.

My goal is to prevent her from continuing operating on animals w/out a medical license, mistreatment of animals while in her care, inbreeding and purposely breeding and selling unhealthy dogs solely for profit. I saw one of her facebook posts when her white Doberman "Angel" ran away from home, she posted a picture of the dog stating that she has an intestinal disease and etc. and if she's dead and she "wants to see her body".

All the above is only what I know about, I can only imagine what goes on behind closed doors with this woman and the animals in her possession.

If y'all were me and wanting to stand up for animals in her possession how would you proceed?

Mistake #1, NEVER NEVER give money or take a puppy from a horrible breeder. You are not "rescuing" the puppy from a bad situation. By doing this you are enabling, no, encouraging, the person to keep breeding dogs.

Sometimes lay people or breeders crop ears. Ears should only be done by an expert vet.

Hindsight is always 20/20 but when you buy a purebred dog you must do your due diligence looking into breeders before calling them or purchasing a puppy. I'm sorry you did not find us first.

ALBINO (not white) dobermans have a host of genetic problems due to their close inbreeding and line breeding in order to produce albino offspring. There is no such thing as a well bred albino doberman and they should not be purchased from a breeder ever. Only should you rescue one through a rescue group and you must make yourself aware of all of their problems. They are not for everyone and take special care in order to keep them healthy.

That's pretty accurate, and goes for any albino breeder. They are milking a unique "market" and pumping out unhealthy puppies in order to get cash. No person who cares about the breed will breed albino dobermans. Please visit the DPCA.org and read more information about albinos and albino "breeders".

I'm very sorry for your poor puppy and I do hope she recovers. The vet is certainly right that it is pretty much due to poor breeding.

This is common in crappy breeders and puppy mills due to inbreeding and poor nutrition of the mother or puppies.

I truly hope you can help prevent others from purchasing from this woman or other bad breeders and albino breeders. Don't believe anything people like this say or post online. If they told the truth they would not be able to sell these [unhealthy, poorly bred] animals to unsuspecting buyers such as yourself.

If you read and search through the forum you will find many posts about this breeder. Thank you for sharing your experience and I hope we may help you further.

In most States it is illegal to crop ears without a veterinary license. Hopefully, TX is the same. Gather all your evidence, photos, emails, etc. and then report her for performing surgery without a license, and anything else that might hold up. If you can get other people that have had experience with her to report as well, all the better. Report her and keep reporting her. Here is a link that shows who to report to in each State and also provides links to the animal cruelty statutes for each State. https://www.animallaw.info/topic/tab...-united-states

practicing veterinary medicine without a license would be reported to the board of veterinary medicine for the state it happened in -- a separate charge from animal cruelty

Reese does her own crops and her vet backs her up repeatedly. this has been attempted before.

I noticed NO ONE suggested calling Animal Control or making an apt with the Local District Attorney's office.

I have first hand experience with this HORRIBLE woman. She has my Dobie female Samantha. Before my husband and I moved back to Washington I had to rehome my Samantha. Kathy Reese gave me both personal and vet references, She even let me come to a house that she claimed was hers. Two days after she took Samantha home I called my vet to let them know who adopted Samantha only to be asked if I knew she owned a puppy mill. I was floored. I contacted her right away and was told I wasn't getting my dog back because she said I abused her and starved her. She then hung up on me blocked my number and blocked my face book. Animal control said they couldn't help me. That was 2 years ago. Then out of the blue on Nov 3rd she msgs and tells me she is very ill and that Sam is her service dog and not to worry she NEVER bred her. Then I see I have been unblocked from her face book and lo and behold she's selling a litter with my samanthas pedigree AND there are PICTURES of my samantha who had clearly had puppies! I just want to scream.

Good suggestion about calling Animal Control. There are animal investigators from shelters that can investigate her Breeders license, though I doubt she has one, and they may be able to charge her with Animal Cruelty.
I am so sorry for your pup, and your awful experience.
God bless you and good luck. You might also call the police and see what they can do.


And try to steal your dog back!
