Halo German Shepherds / Sick puppy
I bought this pup, a white shepherd, in January of 2010 over the internet. On the site it said she was a Chirstian breeder and was not a puppy mill, The pics on her site were beautiful, we drove down to pick up the pup on News Years day, and what I saw was nothing like the pics on her site. She had about forty female whites in one large fenced in area, about 3 to 6 months old.
she had about 20 6-10 pens with no cover on the top and nothing but wire on the bottom. In the pens she either had a large male and female together or a female with pups. It was horrable. The pup she brought me, looked like he was only about 5 weeks old and acted sick, When I questioned her she said she had just wormed him and he was a little sick. I brought him home, because I knew he would not make there. We lost him within 10 days after spending 3000.00 trying to save him. I got no paperwork with him and never got my AKC papers. I contacted AKC, and got no help, same thing with the animal control in that county, or from the state. I was heart broken. I breed white shepherds and I only breed 1 male and 1 female once a year. I do not sell any pup without my vet seeing them. If all states would make it mandortory for et check. All puppy mills would close, and a lot of your large kennels would to. No pet should be sold to the public without a clean bill of health.
