@tanza said in Hi..does anyone have a Basenji through breeder Richard Hanna?:
you are totally out of line
People need to call out about irresponsible breeders...
That would be considered a "personal attack", wouldn't it? Which isn't in line with the Forum Rules.

In that thread, the purchaser of a VERY sick puppy, sick from the moment he was collected from his breeder, was seeking help from the forum
Unfortunately, that particular person was also lashing out at anyone who provided an answer or suggestion that he didn't like. I chatted with him privately, but in the end, he was banned as a result of his actions and nothing else.
I don't understand where you are coming from now.
I think the focus should be on the dog(s) recovery, not on their past. These 4 dogs were rescued from a horrible existence. Their owner was dying (which can take years) and clearly, none of his family/neighbors/friends/etc. stepped up to help him.
The way I read the OP (original post was that @basenjigrandma wanted to compare notes on problems and illnesses. I did not see an intention of dragging the man's name through the mud, however, I promptly stated that the rules discourage that type of behavior when it appeared that we were heading into a verbal brawl.
The Forum Rules clearly state: "Don't ... make an argument personal".
Attacking someone (member/non member, dead/alive) is quite personal.
If anyone remains confused, please take a minute or two to actually read the rules.
