Just to further bring this lady to your attention, the dogs I help take off her (for BRAT) hands last spring…because she wanted to start out with fresh breedings stock I guess (although she said to us that the puppies she was keepin would be fixed and kept as pets, LIAR)...one of them had to be put down for agression issues (he ended up biting his foster family so badly ER visits were needed, the other one was so afraid of humans it never got out of its crate when I went to visit...This poor example of a human is BAD news, NOT a nice person at all, especially promising not to have any more pups to BRAT so she could get rid of her "first breeding stock"...Shame on her and every one that enables people like her...They lived in crates in her kitchen, have you you've been there?
)You should rethink your choice of breeders, there are definitely way better options available, one even not far from Houston in Montgomery, Terry and Bob Reed..Do the responsible thing, walk away and let's not help her make it possible to keep breeding these puppies by not supporting it and putting money in her pocket.
..oopps looks like you already are on top of it, sorry, I just saw Mary's name and went off, please forgive me for jumping the gun.
Sorry, I will get off my soapbox now..I just feel very passionately about this since I helped get two of her dogs out of her hands not many months ago.
I wish you best of luck..
