Irish Jacks/Violet Meadow Farm / Irresponsible Breeder
We bought an adorable Irish Jack from Violet Meadow Farm in 2005. The dog became more aggressive the longer we owned him. Eventually, our dog trainer suggested we contact the breeder and return him, noting that "all responsible breeders will always take their animals back. We were not looking for a refund of any kind, just a safe home for a difficult dog. Keith Butler of Irish Jacks initially agreed to take our dog bak but then proceeded to ignore our emails and numerous phone calls to arrange a time to return him. Their voicemail box filled and was unable to take anymore messages eventually.
This is a BAD. irresponsible breeder who should be avoided at all costs.. Our Irish Jack was very aggressive and untrainable, but worst of all, was Violet Meadows Farms' refusal to take him back.
