Anyone know this breeder?


  • Have any of you ever heard of a breeder named Cindy Clausen, in the PNW?


  • @JazzysMom:

    Not a BCOA member… and I have not heard the name before


  • Okay,

    There's a woman in my area selling her 3 yo boy due to a change in family status, and the breeder listed on the paperwork is Cindy Clausen. The owner doesn't have a lot more info – nor do I as I only spoke briefly with her on the phone -- because the dog was purchased at a {dirty little} farm/pet supply place in a nearby town.
    Just hoping someone knew of the breeder......



  • Makes me curious… but this says she is/was in KS and we are in WA. Not that it couldn't be the same lady.....

    I'm going to keep digging here; thanks.


  • I don't know if it is the same lady…

    I just googled: Cindy Claesen basenji: no hits
    and then: Cindy Claesen puppies..


  • The dog came from Farmland, a pet store that sells companion animals.
    SIGH!
    I do believe this is the KS basenji.
    I called as this b is for sale in the local paper.
    They want to "recoop" some of the $$ they spent to get him.
    So, I left my phone number, BRAT info and asked them please to give my contact info to the folks they sell the basenji to..
    Sigh.


  • Yup, sound to me the pup came from a puppymiller in KS…. I would guess the same person.. and the pet store got the pup/pups they sell from this person...


  • ARGH!!! I really HATE this store. It is very small, dirty, over-crowded inside and out with all kinds of stuff – from farm supplies to picnic tables. I went inside once to buy some crickets for a frog we had, and was claustrophobic as soon as I went in. They have a sign outside that always has a list of puppies available, always a multitude of breeds.
    When the woman told me she got the dog there 3 yrs ago, my heart sank.

    Man, I hope the right person calls her about this dog. From her description, he sounds like a really great pet.


  • I am hoping they will decide to turn him over to BRAT.
    Fingers crossed, that will be what happens.
    I also wish we could get that place shut down.
    I know the Humane society is over there a lot!

    Me too, on both counts.

    I've been wracking my brain - -how can I scare up $400 to buy him and turn him over, but….. there's just no way.

    I know many of you see and deal with such things regularly, esp. those involved in rescue, but this is the first time I've had one so close and it is B-U-G-G-I-N-G
    me that I can't help this dog find a great forever home.:(


  • I agree, with luck they will turn the B over to rescue…..

    I would also go crazy when I would know of such a case! Hope the owner will do the right thing!

    I'm so happy that it isn't allowed in the Netherlands to sell puppies in petstores.. (not that there aren't puppymills… :mad: )

    Also with any luck, someone that is responsible will buy this guy… and at least he is neutered... so that is a good thing... and seems like they are letting him go due to circumstances.. not because of behavior issues... of course the fact that they would rather "recoop" money is a poor excuse to not just turn over to rescue...


  • I'll donate to the cause. $50 from me. Anyone else?


  • We just had a friend die and instead of flowers, they requested that a donation be made to a cause relating to animals. So…I'll donate $50 also.

    Pat


  • I guess this means we only need $300 more to get this dog out of hock.

    After seeing the Oprah show, it's REALLY hard for me to not go out there and start adopting every dog I see. However, I simply don't have the resources at this time but rest assured, when I DO have the resources I'll have a backyard full of B's! I have $50 bucks, though, so I'll happily donate to the cause of getting this dog into BRAT's hands.


  • I'll donate $50 also!


  • Well, don't forget me!! I can kick in $50. So that is $150…but by the time we trickle up to $400, he may be gone....or maybe, just maybe she will have called Sharron back and turned him over!! {fingers and toes all crossed!}


  • we're up to $200 now, right? I think jazzys mom and i posted simultaneously…
