Earlier I posted that I was going to get a male long haired. Well I went to see them and the whole thing didn't seem like a good idea. The poor mother pup looked terrable. I don't think she should have looked like she had not been groomed in years. I didn't go inside but when I walked by the front door the house reeked of pee :shock: . And she said that she got both the mother and father dogs from her sons litter. They were different litters but she didn't have to say it but it sounded like inbreeded pups... wouldn't that be right. Poor puppys. She seemed to like them but to old to properly take care of them.

Maybe next time... I want another one so bad. Oh well this was just not ment to be.

She said they were AKC and I wanted a small long haired male. But the sutuation seemed unacceptable.

I wonder if you report what you saw to the AKC if they could do anything. Or maybe even a humane society....

I don't understand why someone would have people into their house if it was not clean and presentable if they were trying to sell something that came from there, whether it be a couch or a dog. And, on top of it, she implies the parents were siblings? Ick.

It's sad to see an elderly person in that situation but it's also sad for the pups. I just wonder how many dogs she has and if she would be classified as a hoarder.

If it were me, I'd definitely find someone to call and ask them to check the situation out. She could have dogs inside that are in need of major care.

If this sounds preachy, I apologize. I have seen so many dogs who were in unsanitary conditions and it makes me sick to think about it. And it makes me sick to think someone's grandma is living in that as well.

Sorry 'bout that.

I figured it was for the best also. It just wasn't ment to be. With Hershey I instantly knew, and she worked out perfectly. Hopefully it will be the same for the next one.

I would have not done it either....

But I would call someone and report her in a heart beat... It is sad to see and hear of dogs in that situtation...

good luck and God bless

You know it is very sad when elderly people have to resort to breeding and selling puppies just to "supplement" their incomes. Unfortunately, many are doing that. It has become a real problem here in okla. They just don't have the finances to properly care for the dogs, and sometimes the "mental stability" is not what it should be....very sad! :(

geez.. i agree with cooper.. if her house were in that bad condition and the dog looked bad.. and she said they were inbred.. and let you come to your house does she not think she can be reported. I know sometimes when people get older they can forget what is acceptable. But when they get to that age.. they should not be breeding. I would report her.. either she is sadly clueless.. or she thought you were just plain dumb and wouldn't realize what kind of place she is running.

best of luck in finding yourself a new baby boy.. hopeful ly from someone reliable..

I've seen way too many dogs come into our shelter that have been the "victims" of elderly people that don't have the mental ability to care for their dogs, much less themselves. It's truly heartbreaking because the dogs' conditions are the people's responsiblity but your heart goes out to them when they're elderly, not in good physical and/or mental condition and just don't know.

Maybe if you called someone at human services (or whatever they call it in your area), they could get the people some help and help the dogs as well.

I felt bad for the mother dog and the puppies. The way she handeled them, she would just drop them next to the mother. I think she was clueless as to the bad condition. I saw the father and his pups and they looked like they were in great shape and well taken care of. I will see what I can do to help this situation. Poor pups don't need to be brought up like that.

She had 4 dogs that I saw. Maybe 3 if I saw the same one twice, they looked the same.

inbreeding is pretty common in the breeding world. i forgot the technical term maybe it's called linebreeding...... but it's not like it is when humans do it, even though we think it's gross... there are certain rules to follow with linebreeding though....

anyways, it's very common for a bitch to blow coat right after giving birth to pups and the coat can look a bit mangy. but if you have a "feeling" then maybe the situation should be investigated.
