Winchester PomsBreeder

D Review updated:

These people are part of the pomsky uproar and are not breeding full pure bred dogs. You can join our Pomeranian forum of Australia and there is another forum created in Australia under our Huskies group. They have proof that this Back Yard Breeder is part of the new fad cross breeding dog, anything for a buck. This kennel has also been linked to health issues in their dogs. The information on the health issues can be found in this forum as well. Please do not buy from this back yard breeder, who we are being told keeps her dogs outside not underfoot like she claims! Please do not buy from this person or kennel .

    As of now

    Patricia Ruberg is back in Arizona living at her moms breeding puppies yet again.
    She moved back in Sept. 2019.
    She had caused an uproar in Oregon between lying to everyone (about puppies, dogs, health of animals, friends, family, cases and lawsuits open about her, her children and her husband, money and the list goes on) and of course her business and ruining the lives of others.
    She does anything and everything to fly under the radar, collect as much money as possible and collectas many people as she can to make them feel sorry for her.
    Yet again she won't stop. She wont stop breeding a dog until the female dog drops or the dogs life is put at stake. She wont stop breeding a dog until the male drops dead.
    Her pain that she claims if filled with anger and she doesn't care who she brings down with her.

    How is it that all of these cases, the condition of these animals and the health and education of her family just gets brushed under the rug?

    Just an update on Patricia Baran, Tricia Baran, Tricia St Pierre, Tricia Bennett, Tricia Ruberg, Patricia Ruberg. It saddens me to see that Patricia has once again taken advantage of another person just wanting to add a new member to their lives. When we decide to open our hearts, and look forward to all the love this new treasure will bring us, only to have to deal with the lying, and unscrupulous practice of deceit that she uses to get money. Patricia will never be ashamed of her behavior. She sees nothing wrong in the way she runs her puppy mill . It is also how she lives her life. She receives AFDC, Food Stamps, and free State of Oregon medical care for her, her husband ( who refuses to work because all he wants to do all day is smoke Pot), and her three children. She also receives Survivor Benefits for her oldest who lost her father two years ago ( RIP Caleb) . So, every time she sells a puppy, she has failed to report that money as income. I believe that is called Welfare Fruad ! And she has been doing this since 2012, staring in Arizona. I hope the investigation by the State of Oregon finally arrests her and then maybe will close down her puppy mill. I feel sad for those of you who were scammed by Patricia. I am a family member who has witnessed her actions over the years and should have stepped up sooner. My husband is her Father and his heart is broken beyond repair over all of this. We continually pray that the puppies that you purchased are doing well and that on day your hearts will heal.

    From AZ Poms, Winchester Poms, to Fairy Bell. From tricia to patricia baren to patricia Ruberg, last name changed due to marriage this woman is always moving, changing what she goes by, changing her breeding name but no matter what name she goes by she cannot escape that she is a scam artist. I paid for papers and never got them. Then she kept saying soon, soon, soon and soon never came. This woman should be ashamed of herself doing awful things to a lot of people. Also, I second that I was told by an attorney that she was being investigated for welfare fraud! She says she has a bad back and gets paid for it and tells the Government she's limited but then goes and does all sorts of stuff including lifting and etc all the things she claims she can't do. All we can do is spam her name out there so people know she's no good! DO NOT BUY from this breeder, the dogs are kept in horrible conditions often sick, and you won't get what you are told you will. Nor will she refund you what she owes you

    @PatriciaRubergsvictim Patricia is desperate for money. The money she receives from the Government is her monthly AFDC check for her, her husband, (who refuses to work) and her three children. She also receives SSI because the father of her oldest daughter died two years ago. I know this first hand because I am a family member. She does not receive any disability money because of a back injury. And yes, she cleans stalls, digs the ground for a garden, carries her wet laundry down to her dryer in the basement. Lifts heavy bags of feed for her animals. She also claims to have an anxiety disorder. She has been defrauding buyers of her puppy mill since 2013 when she lived in Arizona. Please continue to get the word out about her shady practices !!

    Our story reads much like the rest here... we purchased a puppy from her with the promise she'd send the rest of the documents via email since her printer was "out of ink", then "broken". Her ad said "current vaccinations, health certificate, vet check", etc. Days turned into weeks. She didn't respond to any email or phone message. As time went by, we became nervous we'd been scammed. I followed up with the vet she'd mentioned using... No records. No shots. Nothing but a pup they'd vaccinated a couple years prior since he was flying and needed a health certificate. I later wised up and blocked my phone number... Miraculously, she answered!! I acted like someone interested in a puppy. The puppy we bought was still listed for sale! As I asked more and more questions, she kept saying all the things in the ad. When I finally told her who I was, she started making excuses. I told her I wanted my $$ back and would bring back her dog. At first she agreed since I'd said she misrepresented what we were getting and her vet confirmed that. Then she started making excuses on why she couldn't refund our money. Finally, we agreed to meet the next afternoon and I was to call her for an appointment time since it was a couple hours away. When I called back to confirm our meeting, she said she had to go and would call me back in "2 minutes". Of course, she never called. 35 minutes later, she was blowing up my email with contracts, agreements. These documents came from a couple different company names... Winchester Poms and Fairybell Farm. None of these documents had been seen or discussed previously. Nothing contained the pup's health records/shot records/wormings, etc. She and the ad indicated he was born on 9/11/18. The AKC registration said 7/09/18. She even misrepresented his age!! I involved my attorney. To date, no response. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH HER! She's only in it for the money - NOT for the dogs' best interest.

    @Pom*Mom Sorry to hear about your unfortunate business dealing with Patricia. I encourage you to continue to legally pursue any action you can to resolve this issue with Fairybell Farms. I know firsthand of her puppy mill operation because I am a family member. She had to move to Oregon because of the numerous lawsuits being filed in Arizona. As of this date, I believe she has lost them all ( not that those folks will ever receive their money back) She lives off of welfare ( food stamps AFDC free medical care) and a monthly check she will receive for her daughter because the father died two years ago. Please do all that you can to stop her from continuing to rip off unsuspecting customers.

    @Zjohn If you could possibly post some details of the animals living conditions at Fairybell Farms, it would be helpful in my report to the Humane Society of Oregon. I also have witnessed the unbelievable living environment her animals tolerate ( Patricia also has a variety of other animals living ?? On the rented property in Clastkanie)

    I too purchased a puppy from this liar/scam/con person. Did not get the puppy in the picture, have NEVER gotten AKC registration, or any response from her period. I filed a 56 page report with AKC who finally found her listed as Patricia Baran in Arizona who has not registered a litter of puppies in OVER 2 YEARS. This pure evil has been going on for over 10 years in Arizona, Oregon and Montana. SHE MUST BE STOPPED BUT HOW?? Blast her on facebook at Astoria Bennett AND Patricia Ruberg with the blue dress. I now have an EXTREMELY sick dog, no papers, no pet insurance, no ADDRESS for this con and she literally STOLE $1700 from me. Contact ME at [protected] I am also in contact with two BREEDERS she managed to steal dogs from. She moves about every 2 years so lets get on this!!!

    @GetPatriciaRuberg Patricia Baran Ruberg 79053 CharityLn. Clastkanie, Ore. 97016 She is my evil step-daughter. I have personally witnessed the puppy mill she runs in Oregon. The dogs are kept in cages, and are only out of them for breeding. We no longer have contact with her due to a lawsuit my husband brought against her. She is currently under investigation for welfare fraud in Oregon. Please get the word out about her !!!

    I bought a puppy for 2, 000$ from Patricia Ruberg a year ago and I paid extra 500$ for the AKC papers. She sent me the puppy but she didn't send me the papers. At first she said the papers are supposed to be on the crate, then she accepted she didn't send it and she said it will take 3 months, 3 months later she said she mailed it to me I asked for the tracking and OH! SHE SAID SHE FORGOT TO! But she will on Monday, that monday never came... So that she never send me the papers! Which I believe all that was a scam these puppies are NOT REGISTERED!!! and she is just a thief! I asked her to refund my 500$ back that I extra paid for the papers and of course she didn't! I decided to sue her for make me deal with her almost a year and that week was the last time I heard from her. She doesn't answer my lawyers phones! She is evil, and she is a mom. I hope one day her kids come up and read all these stuff about their mom. I hope they will be so proud of their mom robbing all these people who does business with her!! Yesterday another costumer of her reached me out that she sold her a puppy who has alopecia. She said her puppy started to balding after 2 years old!!! When she talked to Patricia she said she will send her a new puppy and she mentioned that she knew that puppies mom had alopecia too!!! I'm trying to find a way to close her business down before she hurts more people! If you want to reach me out you can find me on facebook with my display name!

    She is a scam artist. I have yet to get my AKC papers. Also barking coming from garage, not in house. We live in Arizona too hot to live in garage. She also said vet would show me health visits, sent us to her vet. Well, of course the vet staff couldn't find them.

    I myself have tried to contact this breeder. To no surprise nothing. I have yet to get my AKC papers. Also I did not see where she kept her other dogs when I picked up puppy but her daughter mention dogs were not kept in house. That means the indoors is a load of crap on her website much like my alcohol papers! Stay away

    Absolutely horrible breeder. Doesn't follow up with any thing she said she will. Say she will sell a puppy then doesn't answer calls, emails or text. Sets up times to meet with puppy and same thing. Says dogs live in house but on 2 separate occasion when I was at her house dogs and puppies always locked in garage. Stay away.

    This Breeder has not returned my calls or texts in over 5 weeks! I bought a beautiful puppy from her and all she was sent home with was a bag of toys. I was assured that she would pay for her first vet visit and that she would paypal me the money for it. I was assured she was akc registered and have yet to get any paperwork.. She hasn't gave me documentation of her shots which I NEED to take her anywhere. The most frustrating thing of all is her lack of communication. I'm livid.

    I sent her $200 for a puppy and she said there was another person interested in her that also wanted to buy her brother. I told her I was ok with that and she agreed to give my deposit back. I have this all in writing. She refuses to answer my messages and it has been over two weeks. Originally she was saying that the money needed to clear her account but that can take maybe a couple days not two weeks. I'm getting breeder relations involved. I too am a breeder and I would never do this to a prospective puppy buyer it's bad business! Beware!!!
