Quando, I think she was merely identifying who the breeder was or making sure who it was.Why would you pass if the breeder is out of Canada? Is that because you do not see any health testing or because you would in general not buy from a Canadian breeder?
It wouldn't stop at testing. I want and need to know the lines, the longevity of the lines, ages at death, cause of death, etc. If there's cancer in the line anywhere, what type.If a breeder is claiming it is health testing, what would be your next step?
My daughter and best friend both bought litter mates from Linda @ Landos. A beautful male and female. Unfortunatley they both died before their 4th ( yes 4th ) birthday. The male died of cancer and female died of heart disease. The female was diagnosed before 3 years old. She was kept alive on medication for 11 months before she passed. The male got sick quickly and passed within 3 weeks of getting sick. Linda sent my daughter $100.00 in December 09 with a promise to pay the rest of the warranty money. She has not seen a penny a that. Linda said the enviroment has lots to do with a dogs health but to kill litter mates under 4 yrs. with a month of each other with 2 different diseases is crazy. Both these dogs had autopsies which Linda has received a copy. I am the grandma of female and loved both those dogs.Hello,
I am new to this board, and am hoping I am in the right place. We are looking to add a boxer pup to our family and want to get a puppy from a reputable breeder. I have come across a few breeders, but don't really know who is "good" and who are the ones that are BYB in disguise.
I saw Landos boxers, and spoke with them (no visits yet) but am a little worried because they seem to breed and have lots of pups within a couple of months (different dogs though) and they also ship their boxers to whomever--is that normal for an ethical breeder to do that? Any advice/opinions are really appreciated. The owner sent me her contract-again, some of it seems great (heart/hip/temperament 3 yr guarantee) but some of it seems sketchy (if for any reason I cannot keep the pup, the breeder has "first right of refusal" for a discounted price). I am new to getting a pup from a breeders, so I don't know if this is common practice?
If anyone has got their pup/dog from Landos and has feedback that would be great. If anyone knows of another good-ethical breeder in Central Ontario (Prefer GTA/Simcoe areas) I would really appreciate the feedback.
Thank you so much for your help!!
Are you waiting for the autopsy results before you refund her her money?This is getting old!!!
Yet again I am under fire from people who have A. never done business with me B. never seen my facility or C. have no prior knowledge of my health testing procedures or pedigrees!!!
As a buyer you have equal responsibility to ask for hard copies of any health testing or pedigrees in any potential puppy you are interested in. I, as the breeder, I am responsible to providing these documents to you. If you the buyer find this documentation to be inadequate choose another breeder!
I am tired of repeating myself and wonder how this site allows this slanderous material on here.
As per Jazperdog, I find it funny that when I asked for autopsies to be done I was told that they weren’t done. So if they are please forward to me and attach it to this forum!!!! I don’t dispute the cardiomyopathy diagnoses and because of this I have ended that line! I have also notified all litter mates of these diagnoses and have extended my health guarantee to cover this disease. As a future precaution not only am I holter testing but have recently started genetic screening through Washington State University.
You wanted me to respond so here it is……..
