    I dunno I am just so pissed that someone would do that
    well...if this shop is not doing anything that is illegal...be careful not to slander them or else they might have a case against you in court. Slandering is most definitely against the law.

    No...I do not condone they practices...all I am saying is...be careful when you start bad mouthing businesses

    You would however be allowed to point out good breeding practices to them, such as health testing and quality of stock. Just be careful what you say as Clea said.

    Some people just can't be told and honestly, I will never understand it.

    I don't hate cross-bred dogs at all, it's not the dogs fault it's owner/breeder was an idiot.

    There are so many people who are not educated about some of these cross breeds or about puppy-mills, bybs etc.
    I am constantly telling people about these and also pointing them in the direction of rescue groups for their next four legged friend.

    I certainly in no way condone what either has done (pet shop or sister) but referring to someone who has either a difference of opinion to yourself or perhaps an uneducated view of purchasing a dog, as a moron shows little towards yourself.
    Sure it may not have been the right thing to do morally but if its not illegal then why get angry at her. You should be targeting the people responsible for the law making, thus preventing these things from happening in the first place.
    I am finding this site more and more frustrating everytime i come here, its always someone ripping into someone else because they dont agree with what another has done.
    Why not try and make the post educational instead of the moron comments.

    I agree whole heartedly about education over name calling and we need to take a more slowly slowly approach to new members etc.

    But on the other side I read into Pepsi's post that she tried to educate her sister via phone and came up against a brick wall. Nothing new there it happens all the time.

    I think if anyone is allowed to call someone a "moron" then a sister is allowed to do that.

    Though I guess if someone new was to join, who had, because of lack of education, bought a puppy from an unethical breeder/supplier (which is a term I prefer to use because they come in all forms of the dog world), it might be off putting and turn them away from the forum so I for one will try to improve my posts so as not to offend.

    Having said that, I think the forum would be damn boring without the sometimes heated discussions that take place and the differences of opinions some of which have changed my way of thinking and others have only firmed up my current opinions.

    Not sure where I'm going with this....

    I agree with this... but I think (and I could be wrong here) that most of us here were ****ty at the petshop person for the idioticy (sp?) not the person who baught the dog cause that is just a lack of education, sad but it happens far too often, its how petshops stay in buisness.
    Now if she was to go ahead and take the petshop persons advice and breed from this dog that would be idiotic, esp if she did it dispite knowing the issues involved.
    I have had time tho think on this and now the entire thing just makes me more sad than angry. I am sorry to everyone if my rash comments yesturday upset them

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    In response to your comments, I have been talking to my sister about buying a dog for a few weeks, if you look back she was originally looking at a shar pei, despite not having the time or yard space. We have also had long discussions about puppy farming and BYB, then she decided to go ahead and buy a farm pup without any thought, she bought it because it looked nice.

    What my fear is, is that this dog is going to end up bored, destructive and potentially vicious, she is pregnant with her 4th child, the puppy is not going to be trained properly or possibly properly vaccinated. If this dog were to attack you or your friends i am guessing you would wonder why no one ever told this person about her dog. The fact is I have told her but she chose to ignore everything i have told her.

    I am her younger sister, she is 12 yrs older than i am, but if any one has the right to call her a moron it is me! I was the one who had to take her JRT to the vet to be PTS when it attacked my nephew, he was only just 12 months old and the dog challenged him over a snack, he refused to hand it over so the dog bit him. She treats her dogs like her kids, she wants them to be free spirits but discipline, training and control are all unheard of.

    Pepsi I think you absolutely have a right to insult your own relatives in any way you think appropriate. My sister's a bitch in case anyone wants to know!

    Given the back story I think 'moron' is a fair call, in fact I've seen the words 'irresponsible pet owner' thrown round like confetti since I joined this forum and it's nice to see it applied where it fits.

    Hope for everyone's sake your sister and her family put in the time and effort that's needed for this pup and a situation like last time can be avoided.

    So then by calling her a moron you have achieved what?
    Did it stop her from buying the dog? Did it do anything at all? Or did it just make you feel right?
    As for the dog attacking me or being bored or destructive these are all just assumptions so why even add it like its some sort of defence for you?
    I hope everything in your life you have done is spot on otherwise that may make you a bit of a hypocrite, i know for one i certainly have some skeletons in my closet even breeding blue heelers from home ( in my backyard) when i was younger. Certainly wouldnt do it today but then at the time i believed it to be right. If your sister didnt learn this time maybe she will next time, that is something you will have no control over.
    Why does this forum always have to bitching about someone?
