"Miniature Golden Retrievers"

Does this have puppy mill written all over it? http://www.miniaturegoldenretriever.net/index.html

Anyone hear of this before?

I wonder if some of these customers even realize that these "miniature goldens" aren't purebred goldens, but 25% cocker spaniel.And get a load of the comment she makes about hoping other breeders use the best quality stock for their breedings. Anyone looking for a sheltiedoodle?

Absolutely disgusting! From what I can read on the home page (what's with all the bright colored lettering?), they have several litters, some of which are now 12 weeks old. On their SALE!!!! page, they have a golden doodle that they are selling for $850 who is a "fairly nice pet" who is "stranger shy". They are done breeding her. She must not have pumped out enough puppies.

Oh, and the "miniature" golden puppy on the SALE!!!!! page has a white spot on her forehead and a white muzzle with freckles....

"My hearts desire is not only to have a dog "look" like a golden but to essentially "be" golden in every sense of the word. Looks, temperament, disposition, personality.....only lacking in size and in health issues."

wow.

She also has the hybrid vigor fallacy posted on her very hard to read website. I had to stop reading because the colors were horrible on my eyes.

I am not even going to look. Seriously. I don't need yet another thread in which my breeding philosphies need to be defended/justified.

The internet is rife with this kind of thing. It is beyond disturbing to those of us who are passionate about maintaining and bettering the purebred dog and who consider it a privelege and a responsibility to breed the best that we possibly can.

Hahaha

i sent her an email for kicks because i was curious. i was polite.

this is what i received:

"Hello! What an unpleasant surprise to hear from you guys as always! :O)

You guys are from the batch of unbalanced folks that put dogs before people right? Oh and the ones that are totally fine with people breeding the "pure" (by the way the purebred came from breeders "mixing" until it became pure......remember the days?) bred dog as long as it is pure bred.......Right. So we have giant, 120 lb goldens........90 lb goldens.......can you say bad hips and elbows anyone? Oh or should we talk about teperament and disposition.....do you know how many "pure" bred registered GOLDENS I have had to sort through just to find some suitable to be bred for my miniatures? Do we want to talk about the pure bred/inbred goldens? Do we want to talk about how they are DOG aggressive? Do we want to talk about how some states (like CA I hear) are considering the golden retriever to be at high risk for biting people? Pull your heads out of the sand! Wake up and realize that MANY people have totally flooded the market with "pure" bred crap! Then they sell them to brokers, puppies on the street for $250 or less....


So really......you think about it just for a minute......am "I" the one you want to keep blaming for your little "groups" problems?


"I" am sorting and building from only the good traits that the early goldens had. I sell my puppies as penthouse pets.....ON a spay/neuter contract which as you know greatly minimizes them ever being bred. So, why not look into cleaning your OWN house before trying to fix someone else?


Best of luck with that!
