Melissa Zobell used to run the Australian Shepherd Rescue of Utah. I heard numerous stories of her harassing people about not spaying/neutering their dogs and I even had a friend who received hate mail from her stating the reasons why dogs should be spayed/neutered and the statistics on pets that were put down each year in shelters. She was banned from the Petco and Petsmart here in Utah County because of her unprofessional attitude and all the complaints filed against her. She was even banned from the local shelters!

Today, Melissa has over 30 dogs and is breeding them to make her house payments. She is creating designer dogs (pom-a-poos, yorkie-poos, mini aussies, ect.) and charging ridiculous prices ($600-$1200) for these mixed breed dogs. She claims they are "health tested" which means they are seen by a vet (her colleague) and they are current on vaccinations. Non of these dogs are tested for genetic disorders or even screened for eyes, hips or knee problems. To top it all off, she runs her business out of Animal Medical Services and showcases the animals in their adoption center. She no longer supports animal rescue and instead contributes to the over pet population. Melissa should be reported for hoarding animals! Nobody should ever breed dogs as mush as she does. It should be a crime.

I do know that Melissa is breeding these designer dogs. I have heard from her own kids say that they have over 35 dogs at their house in Hidaway Valley, down in Sanpete County. I have also heard it from her neighbors that live out by her that she has way too many dogs. I have talked to people that have gotten rescue dogs from her and they have had the same stories or complaints as the people who have posted here. I am sure some have had a good experience but there are many who have not had a good experience. People need to be aware of who they get their dogs from and ask to see the health certificates and things upfront. If people would do their homework it would save them a lot of heart ache. It is sad but most of the what I have seen and also witnessed first hand from Melissa has not been good, not to say that there can be good endings out there. People please just do your homework first when dealing with her.
