The petition is still there for all to read, it has encouraged people to come forward with their own buyer and visitor complaints to the local authority and that can lead to some changes and improvements for these puppies. There are a large number of complaints. Puppies in the puppy supermarkets are unsocialised miserable little things but if the kennels have been forced to clean up, put water down and get some puppies to the vet that is an improvement in the life of a little helpless creature.
Trying to get the message across to the public never to buy from such large multiple breed outlets is very difficult. They want a puppy today and such a place is open and dying to sell to them. If they even spent an hour googling the name in depth, something like the truth would appear. It is clear though, that some people :( will buy from them, whatever the welfare groups, behaviour experts and general puppy buying advice says. Hec, they will even come back with two :roll: , I've seen it time after time. The majority of people :D will avoid these places once their eyes are opened and I have no qualms at all if petitions and forums hurt the cruel unethical business of the puppy supermarkets.

All what carole says needs to be repeated to get the message through, but i wanted to say that i find the above time and time again. People don't want to wait.
I am a much happier breeder to know someone is willing to wait for the right puppy. Makes me feel that they have really thought about the commitment too.

Hello

We are new to the forum and new doodle owners and I hope you will not judge us as horrible people straight away but we have one of the black doodles from Little Rascals mentioned in the opening post of this thread. Had we read more about the place (as perhaps we should) we would certainly have thought twice but we certainly do not regret it as he is absolutely perfect (name Buddy). We will tell you a bit about our experience with Little Rascals and let you make your own mind up.

There are certainly many breeds on offer there but all the kennels we saw were spacious and with very clean bedding. Buddy and his 4 siblings were in a large enclosure with mum - all seemed happy and healthy and greeted the kennel worker enthusiastically. We also saw dad who was in another large enclosure with 2 other standard poodles - boisterous and seemingly happy. Buddy was groomed and put in a pet carrier and we received vaccination history and the usual puppy pack.

BUT... on the way home we noticed a slight cough, it didn't seem much at all but it got worse after we got home - yes the dreaded kennel cough. We phoned Little Rascals the next day after being up all night with a coughing puppy and were advised to give him Benylin (apparently their vet SWEARS by it). We were not convinced and took him to our vet who put him on antibiotics and Panacur wormer (in case it was lungworm). Now over a month later, Buddy is just about on the mend after several courses of ABs, an anti-inflammatory and a probiotic and having to start his jabs again. All puppies from this place are supposed to be insured for 6 weeks so we have sent them the vets bills - they have paid for the ABs we have claimed so far and the initial consultation fee but have not paid for subsequent consultations or the other meds (including the specialist wormer as they reckon the Milbemax he had had was all the wormer he needed).

As we say, Buddy is on the road to recovery and is becoming a total joy (and an absolute pain, being a puppy) but it has been a worrying few weeks for us with plenty of sleepless nights. So our experience of this breeder is mixed to say the least. We are thankful that they have given us this perfect little lad but a little frustrated that we were sold him when he was ill (it is hard to believe they did not know about the kennel cough) and feel that the aftercare could have been a little better.

We would like to hear from anyone else who has bought from this breeder to hear their experiences, especially anyone who may have one of Buddy's brothers or sisters, or anyone who has any comments.

Thanks

I just wanted to say Hi to Julie & Rick, and welcome to the forum. Thanks for giving us your views of the breeder - both good & bad. Hope to see some pics of Buddy too :lol:
