Has anyone heard of her? Sire : Ramstocks Behold the Pale Horse, Dam: Ramstocks Voodoo Rue Dumaine
Thanks! When we brought Jakeup home my 8 year old daughter put a post on my Facebook page annoucing our new pup and that is how she spelled it. I liked it and decided to keep it that way. The negative experience is that the lady I purchased him from Ashley Jones near Jackson , TN claimed she owned the dame and her brother in law had the sire. She was not claiming to be a "breeder" ; however when I got him the papers said the breeders name was Dr. Nicole Arrington and the telephone number was marked out. I contacted the reg. papers to get the number and it was just the same lady Ashly Jones. She never returned my call. When I took Jake to the vet to have his first look over the vet told me that Jake had been castrated ; he had a small scar there; he was 9 weeks old at the time; when I contacted Ashley she denied it via txt message; she never would take my call. I called her vet that she claimed she took him to and thet didn'y know her; or hadnt had any doberman puppies either. Therefore I wondered if anything she told me was true. I was really gullable. I have the tendancy to believe everyone is honest as myself. I just felt sick to my stomach about it and wondered was he stolen? Did he come from a puppy mill? I have know idea. I was stupid enough to meet her half way between Jackson and where I live to get him. I checked both the numbers on a reverse look up and they were both cell phones. I just wanted to see if I put the name on this site if anyone may have heard of them; I am fearful they have scammed other people as well. I know I will never buy from a crook; or a BYB ever again; If I am ever in need of another Dobe it will be from a breeder with good rep or a rescue! I dont know if the dame and sire I listed on the original post are truley Jakes parents; that is what his papers say; who knows. His supossed father was white with several other whites in his pedigree. I wonder if that is why they castrated him; in fear he would produce more whites; It is a mystery to me. Other than that Jake is awesome; couln't ask for a better pet...what were your negative experiences with this person? It's easy to jump the gun when the decision to bring a puppy into the family has been made. I also recently bought a puppy from less than stellar breeder. In my haste, I chose to purchase a pup from her due to her proximity to my home instead of doing an adequate amount of research on her. After the fact, I continued to research the breeder and what I found astonished me...lie after lie....Either way, I still love my boy more than anything, but I will never support a byb in the future. Everyone makes mistakes at some point in their lives, the important thing is to learn from them. Wish you the best with Jakeup....FYI I love how you spell his name...reminds of hiccup
LindaH...It makes me sick to think about it.. I was hesitant to tell this horrible story because I have to admit the ignorant mistakes I made. However I wanted to make sure I got her name out there; how do I link my thread and the details; I would love to do that. My vet is signing my complaint packet that I am sending to the CKC; I am sure that will be a waist of time but at least there will be an offical complaint on file. I bet Jake thought he was in heaven when he came home with us.....also I posted those ear shots you wanted in the Doberman Related chat section....You should link your thread with all the details here so the info is here for people if they look up her or the dogs names. I cant believe she denies castrating him! That is something you need to know in case they are retained. And giving you a vets name she has never seen, your byb is a piece of work! Anyone should always insist on seeing where a puppy lives, never meet the breeder. You just know the living conditions were horrible. Thanks for posting about this byb breeder.
Thanks Tricia I appreciate that....My vet is certain he was neutered..Also I too am so glad to have found this forum. I have found so much support and help here. For the haters of DT; they either get their feelings hurt when the truth is offered or they are doing something that is not acceptable to better of the breed. I found the Beware of DT early on when I first started lurking here and was a little uneasy about what I was in for; only to find some really awesome people who seem to genually care about the well being of me and my puppy:nicejob:I admire you for telling your story in public. It may save others some heartache. He's a very cute puppy and you sound like a caring human. Glad you found this forum and hope for many photos as your puppy is growing up. Also hope you find out his medical background on the possible neuter. Good luck!
