Yes, Pat, your right..I was just hoping these dogs would have a better life, if she had an idea where they could be headed…and what could happen to the puppies they have.
I am pretty sure they are intact...sigh.
And not only that… I am sure they are not DNA tested for Fanconi
I'm 99% sure that is the same woman I got Cody from. She was giving away the older Bs and selling the puppies. If so, she was keeping them outside. Cody was in horrible condition when I got him. His coat was coarse, ears black, he was underweight, had lots of little cuts/bites, and had been kept in a kennel with a few other males. He also had a rib bone that had been broken and healed on it's own, so it looks like he has a bump on his side where it sticks out a bit, but that probably happened before she got them. After seeing the condition Cody and Remi were in a few months ago, I feel so bad for the others. Remi, the puppy that my friend bought from her (for $100) when she got Cody for me, had ear mites, and they both had some kind of intestinal parasite, but besides that mentioned, they both seem to be in good health. I'm getting Cody tested for Thyroid and Fanconi soon.
From what she said, they were dropped off with her by someone else, but she couldn't handle them. Apparently, she breed lots of dogs (I know she had greyhounds and chihuahuas, as well as others). She wouldn't actually let us pick them up from her house, we had to meet her at a Walmart in Virginia, where she actually lives. When I talked to her, she had 2 three year old females, Cody, and quite a few puppies, so she has rehomed of quite a few of them. The pups are actually about 6 months old, becuse she told us Remi was abuot 6 or 7 months, but he was only 4 months old. None of the Bs have had any health tests and are all intact. She said that if we hadn't contacted her in one month to let her know that they had been 'fixed', she would come and pick them up, but I haven't heard anything from her since getting him. I was under the impression that she was going to take the older Bs to a shelter if she couldn't get rid of them.
