Kabeara Kennels / Beware!
I bought my first Samoyed puppy from this kennel, a little over three years ago, and I brought him to my vet back in the St. Paul, MN area the next day they were open. On the initial inspection my vet determined that he had some problems, I believe it was kennel cough, and that he had these issues before we ever picked him up. I informed the breeder of this, which she denied could be possible, but did agree to pay for 1/2 of the vet bill, which after 6 months she never did and I just paid it all because I didn't want to deal with her anymore. In addition after further research I firmly believe that she is running and upscale puppy mill. I believe this because she always has puppies for sale, I think she had 4 litters within the past 10 days when I got my puppy. Which does not happen with reputable breeders. Next she had no interview process and fairly little concern about where the puppies went compared to other Samoyed breeders I've spoken to since. I could go on and on, but the stuff I've mentioned thus far is what I really had concern with. I ended up getting another puppy, which I found out when I picked him up happend to be the former chair for the Samoyed Club of America. She asked where I got my other sammy from and when I told her she just said oh and that she was not surprised I had issues with that breeder. She was very respectable and didn't go into why she had problems with them, but I got a strong impression that I was not the first and have not been the last people with problems. She claims it is not a business for her and she looses money, but with as many litters and the price she charges I hardly believe this is true. I STRONGLY recommend you get one from a reputable breeder it will be worth the wait. My second puppy was cheaper than the one I purchased from her and is much more distinguished looking.
