Wanda Taylor / Bad Breeding

1 CA, United States Review updated:

Wanda Taylor is a breeder who deals with puppy mills and travels the U.S to get pick of the litters with these puppy mills. She does not take care of her adult dogs nor do her suppliers. She hides behind other people such as MS Puppy Connection - these people are now being questioned about the pureness of their pure breeds and also sold a pup with hydrocephalus, these people are in Mississippi. She deals with puppy mills in Missouri. She claims to breed only Maltese but this is a lie - She also sells Pomeranians, English (think) Bull Dogs or some other type of Bull Dog, Shih Tzu, etc. She does not feed her dogs and pups correctly, does not groom them enough, and many of the adult dogs are simply sad little crate dogs. She lies about the weight of all her dogs. Could go on but you get the idea. Wanda you really need to stop taking advantage of good people that just happen to have money.

    Thought she only bred Maltese.

    She does sell some dogs/pups of top quality. But this statement is of her is TRUE.

    She is in Canada, Florida, Mississippi, Maybe Texas -pretty sure, and deals with Korean puppies. Also, Missouri, maybe Kansas.

    She does have a few good dogs/pups out there - if you deal with this many people/breeders; you are bound to have a few good dogs/pups.

    I do NOT understand these people. Do not understand this whole mess. Not you Andrew, hope you have a healthy puppy with a good home.

    Makes me actually cry to know what is going on in the world. If wishes were airplanes, one wish would be to stop this madness with these animals.

    You can hardly take any one for their word today. There was a day when a hand shake and a promise meant some thing. Not any more. It is one scam after another.

    No one wants to give much effort in the U.S. - people are becoming lazy and trying to make a buck the easiest way possible. There is/was a man in jail who put a website together for the puppy mills. He became a MILLIONAIRE while in jail. That link is on this board some wheres.

    Google AKC and puppy mills - they are suppose to be Gold Standard.

    I think will stop for now - hopefully will stay away from this board and the info out there about scams and cons. Tired of being saddened by our society.

    Don't get me wrong - I do LOVE living in the US but our people and society is changing.

    Except for the world's smallest dog.

    Liars.

    Would suggest you NOT messing with me Wanda unless - you want me to post my emails.

    "Wanda"? How many names do you go by.

    And yes I do breed dogs. They are my babies and live in my home with me.

    Wanda - if you just got a hold of one of our babies - you best take care of it. Hope you are going to resell it and NOT breed it. You do not deserve the money you have made off of these poor animals. I am sick of seeing your lies all over the internet while reputable breeders have to stop breeding because of losing sales to people like you.

    Folks - these people to have some Top Notch puppies. The also have sick puppies. They are setting up "breeders" through the entire U.S. - they tried to pull this with myself until I realized what was going on. I did a lot of research but in the beginning did not realize how easy it is to lie when it comes to AKC papers and such.

    I did a whole year of research before deciding to breed. I picked the right dog to breed - one without known health concerns. I chose breeders with AKC registration - the "Gold Standard". I looked at websites over and over. Then I happened across Wanda's site - looked perfect, she answered questions appropriately. The first dog I received from her was such a top notch puppy - said puppy actually won ribbons and one major against well known AKC dogs. She was suppose to be 4 1/2 pounds but of course she is 6 1/2 to 7 pounds - No biggie.

    So, naturally I became hooked on Wanda and her puppies. So came the next dog from her except this little guy was an adult- I really do NOT think Wanda will want me to tell you about that dog, so, will just leave it at that.

    Wanda - I took care of the second dog appropriately, unlike you did with his cousins. He is living with a loving person who could see the past in his poor eyes; I did not make a nickle off of that dog. As a matter of fact - lost money on him. But was glad to do so because he deserved better. And I really do not think this is the only scam you are pulling. God will catch up with you.

    And as Zach always says - reputable breeders do not make money. This is true to a point. The only way a reputable breeder can make money is to keep breeding for years and years and get well known. Then they might start making money.

    Me - I have not made a penny in profits in 4 years. Why? Because I take care of my dogs. They get their teeth professionally cleaned. One went to the vet because she was "off". She was just constipated, thank goodness. One of our dams at 7 years old - found a nodule in her breast. Sent her to the vet to have nodule removed and have her spayed - she was getting to old to breed. Said nodule was cancer. But we found it early and the problem was taken care of. Other breeders would have just thrown her into a dumpster. That little girl deserved every penny we put into her vet care. We kept her and planned to keep her until the right person came along. She is happily living with people who know of her past - we gave the dog to these people; and these people are of high social status. But later the people that took this dog sent us money any way.

    One more thing - I might just keep this up until YOU SO CALLED REPUTABLE BREEDERS are no longer around.

    I know of great person who has been breeding for at least 5 years now and does show her dogs. Unfortunately, her husband fell ill and finances are difficult for them. These people are down on their luck. This person has not made much money off of her breeding - this is the type of people who should profit. Ones who do take care of their animals.

    You are such a liar OP. Your posts are nothing but BS. You know nothing about Wanda, that is obvious. But we know who you are, who could forget that ginormous girth jiggling down the drive, we could smell you before we saw you. Pure funk. Filthy hair and nails, bad smell, and soobese we were afraid to ask you in because we didn't want to embarrass you in case you got stuck in the doorway.

    Let me start off by saying we love Giovanni more than you ever did and that is why he is still here and will remain here till our verbal agreement has been met. This is the way I see things. Once upon a time not so long ago in a far far away place called California a beautiful maltese angel was born to be raised as royalty on her on little island but little did we know of her prince to be...
    In July of 2009, you called me with such desperation in your voice. Desperation to sell, sell, sell and do me a favor. You knew we were looking for a small stud for Ginger who we had bought from you earlier. You offered to sell me Giovanni for $2000. Small 3/12 pound stud maltese with one testicle. At said time, I declined. As we had discussed earlier, Ginger would be placed in dog shows and would not be breeding her for now and maybe even up to 2 years of age. You stated that was ok. I stated $2000 was too much for Giovanni. We did and do have the money to buy a quality pedigree maltese stud but rather spend top dollar for a two testicle stud. You stated you could sell him to me for $1500 (total I believe, or at least you led me to believe this). Told you at that time, that I would call our vet. for an opinion. Our vet's assistant said to not buy him, you were trying to pass your problem on to me (boy was she right) and he should be neutered. So, I declined your offer. You then offered Giovanni to me for $1000 with co-ownership - think that was the way that offer worked. I stated no to that offer too.
    Then some time or another in a July conversation, you stated Giovanni had 2 testicles but one had not dropped and was still in the inguinal canal. That sparked my interest. So the antics of Wanda continues. You call again, with an anxious demeanor this time. Offered to sell me Giovanni for $500 if I would breed him to Ginger and then in turn we would send you a quality female and you would pay us $500, or around about that, for shipping, vet, etc. So, once again I place a call to our vet. The vet's assistant stated not a good idea to breed even if Giovanni's testicle was in his inguinal canal. Called you back, told you what the vet's assistant said. You stated our Vet was an idiot and your vet. said there would be no problems with Giovanni and you would give me a Health Guarantee, and some other blah, blah. if Giovanni was to get testicular cancer.
    So, I gave in. On, 7/7/2009 we transferred $500 to your account on the verbal agreement that we would breed Giovanni to Ginger which could be a while since she was in shows. You agreed and stated that you had enough maltese at such time any way and would not be needing a female maltese for a while. You had stated around this time, you were going to sell Giovanni For $1000 to a breeder but decided against it, even though you stated in an earlier conversation that you do not sell to breeders. You stated you would rather Giovanni go to me and be taken care of. Well you did the right thing there.
    On 7/12/2009, Giovanni arrived at the New Orleans, LA airport. We arrived at the airport before he did. A call was placed to you when Giovanni arrived to tell you of such. On the way home, I noticed Giovanni's bite was off. I looked in his mouth - never have seen such a nasty mouth in any animal. His baby teeth had not fallen and there was debris between his baby teeth and permanent teeth. The gum line was with sores and bleeding. His gums were of a pink whitish color rather than a pink rosey color, since this is a sign of dehydration, I assessed his turgor. I picked the skin up on his neck and stayed in a tent position for seconds. Poor old painful Giovanni was dehydrated; chronically too. Bet the dehydration was because his painful teeth. We gave him as much water as he would drink, bought him home, cleaned his teeth as best as we could. At this point, he started to drink water more and the fattening up of Giovanni started (He weighs up to 5 pounds now as opposed to the 3.8 pounds when he arrived). On 7/24/2009, we took Giovanni to Oasis Vet. Hospital in Theodore, Al to have his baby teeth removed and remaining teeth cleaned.
    Some time in August, or maybe September, you call stating you are under AKC investigation because another breeder reported you. You stated she reported you because Giovanni needed to be DNA tested and you would send the test kit to me. Which you did. I administered the test and returned it to AKC. We spoke many times during these months. You were aware that we bred Giovanni to Lovey. I questioned the need for a DNA test for Giovanni, you stated AKC requires you to DNA test stud dogs if bred 3 times in a year or 6 times in a life time. I stated that my litter would be the third litter and that didn't make sense. You stated you accidently registered a litter of puppies under Giovanni's registration number, the puppies were sire by another stud. You stated you would give me a copy of the test and help with AKC papers for Lovey and Giovanni's puppies, which you did neither of. You would think it could end here, but oh but no...
    September, I think, you call to tell me of Marabella and Armani's Deaths. You sat with them in your arms crying for 24 hours. What I don't get here is this - If you loved them so much, why didn't you bring them to the vet??? And then you start saying Parvo this, Parvo that, maybe I should give Giovanni a Parvo booster shot and boo hoo. Now there's Inconsiderate for you. Not only have taken care of poor old sick Giovanni but our healthy dogs might have been exposed to a pathogen. Did you check Marabella and Armani's teeth?? How can I expect yes there when you missed poor old Giovanni's obvious dental problems. Did you know that can easily kill a dog?? Well, we will never know why the poor animals died, since you did not bring them to a vet. Even so, I gave you my sympathy without conviction.
    10/10/2009 - Our first litter, yea. Lovey and me right there on the spot. She gave me some concern but we made it and we had a vet in line if needed. Because of Lovey's difficulty, I had stated was concerned about breeding Ginger and REALLY needed to know if Giovanni produced small puppies. Was considering breeding MaryAnn and no longer doing do shows with her since she was so excited at the shows. But would wait on Ginger, continue with shows with here because we felt she could get a title. You stated you didn't want one of MaryAnn's puppies, you wanted one Ginger's and Giovanni's. Once again I reminded you of the Dog Show situation with Ginger. Geeze.
    I placed many calls to your California telephone number and emailed you about AKC papers for Giovanni's and Lovey's puppies. With no reply. Said puppies were sold without AKC papers. In a recent call you stated we could get CKC papers for the puppies. We don't won't CKC papers. Why couldn't we get AKC papers on the puppies Wanda????
    ??November - Not sure ??...
    As if it is not crazy enough, you call with another antic and innuendos. It is not my fault your females were in season and you did not have a stud dog. Probably should have taken better care of Armani, God bless him and poor Marabella. You state you need Giovanni back at your residence because he is under investigation, I stated that did not make sense. Oh sweetie this from you and sweetie that. Well, I spoke with AKC and they stated no investigation was being done on Giovanni. Then you told another blah blah story after that return call from me.
    Yeah you did call me 11/20/2009 and there about but we were at the show, and returned your phone call as soon as we arrived home. We did not get your new number till December, think that is the time range.
    Well I have spoken with AKC once again this month. Told them above story. Since AKC is just a company for documentation of Pure Bred Pedigree dogs and can not enforce laws they suggested I call YOUR local animal control group, ASPCA, etc.
    Spoke with a female from you Vet's office. She stated to neuter Giovanni. But I spoke with Dr. Sifferman today, and he confirmed he felt Giovanni would be ok. He was not aware of his teeth because you had him assess only testicular situaion. He stated this was congenital but should not pass on to off spring. So here is my contract to you:

    CONTRACT:
    WHEN WE BREED GIOVANNI TO GINGER, WE WILL SHIP YOU A FEMALE OF TOP QUALITY AFTER RECEIVING MONEY FOR SHIPMENT, HANDLING, AND VET. BILL NOT TO EXCEED $500 TOTAL. AND AT SAID SUCH TIME OWNERSHIP, FULL AKC RIGHTS OF SIR GIOVANNI WILL BE TRANSFERED TO ANN MARIE THROWER.
    A FULL CONTRACT WILL BE SIGNED BEFORE SAID PUPPY IS TRANSFERRED TO YOU: THE FOLLOWING WILL BE SUBJECT MATTER OF FULL CONTRACT: VET. CARE, GROOMING/MAINTENANCE, RETURN OF PUPPY - NO RESALE OF PUPPY, BASICALLY WHAT WE EXPECT FROM THE BUYER
    You did the right thing girl. We will take wonderful care of Giovanni and Ginger, Hope you have a good Valentines Day.


    g wanda taylor :


    Ann,

    Why no return phone calls? or emails?
    You have had my dog Giovanni since last summer...
    You changed your mind about giving me a future puppy from the girl I sold to you...
    You sent me 500.00 part of that was for his flight which buyer is responsible for and the other part was for his vet bill which you offered to pay...
    Last week you offered me 1, 000 for Giovanni..I declined your offer as my original agreement was for 2, 000 or a future puppy from the female I sold you..
    At this point I have no idea what your plan for giovanni is?
    I have a Gentleman right now wanting to pay me 2, 000 for him today...
    I sent you an email stating these facts to you last week...no reply, no return calls.
    I stated in the email I would deduct you 180.00 vet bill as well as costs to my vet here and sell him to you for 1, 550 still I do not here from you.
    I even went on to say if you didn't have all the money I would work with you on payment.
    You should out of consideration at least stay in touch...If I don't hear from you in 2 more days as to your plans on my dog ..you give me no other choice but to pursue in getting him back...
    Sincerely,
    Wanda

    This dog was neutered because his testicle became necrotic. He has been placed with a loving woman.

    I breed correctly now. Should not have bred a dog with a testicle in his inguinal canal - bad practice. Those puppies did not have any papers. Sold them as pet quality.

    The reason I am doing this - my gut is telling me that Wanda has one of my pups now.

    Believe me - I never understood why a person would buy a dog. That is, until I saw the Maltese dog. They are God's good luck charms and should be treated as such.
