I wonder what her reason is for breeding this way? What does she think she is accomplishing?

Must be. I can't believe there are people out there who will actually see nothing wrong and buy them. They are for sure not out for the better of the breed(s).

Might be money.

This is mostly speculation, but when I see that site I don't see "I'm out for money."

There is a sort of type of woman that feels very connected to their big dog. Usually they like things like dreamcatchers and spirits and 120lb usually kind of chubby "wolfdogs" (in reality a husky mix). They are entralled with the romanticism of "wolfsong" and a connection with the earth and like to paint Native Americans on paint horses. Usually spinsters. I've met enough of these to classify them as a "type."

This woman doesn't really fit that stereotype but she's pretty close. I sincerely believe that she sincerely believes that these dogs are wonderful. They are the way "they're supposed to be." Huge. Gorgeous. Fearless (if it is scared of anything it is sensitive and needs understanding). Fed naturally.

They are trained "without the use of force, food, or gimmicks." You see, these dogs do not abide by the rules of normal dogs. They are special, because they were bred and raised by someone who truly understands animals. They genetically love people and are gentically compliant; they don't even need exercise. Those protection dog trainers, they have no idea. You see, "Brittany always preferred the company of critters" (/social recluse/reject) as a child, so she has a connection with animals that those cold scientific dog psychologists/ renouned trainers simply don't understand.

IMO, a completely emotional, screwy, willfully ignorant person. She doesn't like science and fact. She doesn't even know where Rottweilers came from (hint: Rottweil is not in Italy) Lol, yeah, right, Ancient Romans kept "gentle, compliant, relaxed" 200 lbs monsters with abysmal legs (euhhhhhh why do its hock look like that... http://www.brittanysanimalkingdom.com/BGGRott.jpg). You see, in Ancient Rome, they had a plethora of meat to shove down the throats of useless 200lb mastiffs (excusez-moi, "discreet protectors").

As presumptuous and maybe inaccurate as all that is, that is what I think when I see a website like that. It would make me feel way better if she was doing it for money and knew her dogs were crap.

Wow. I bet those poor rotties break down at 4 years old. Man, they're structurally awful, and that's only what I can tell from bad photos.

So sad. And I bet you're right. I bet you all aren't the only ones who have stumbled on her site, and probably other people have told her that her dogs are less then standard.

It's not like she's hiding the mess she's making. She's letting it all hang out. I bet she probably thinks that the people who have told her about her dogs are jerks and snooty.

It seems like when you try to discourage people from breeding and you use terms like "poor structure," and "incorrect for the breed," that people get very defensive and usually say, "I'm just breeding for pets!!!!"

Not that I would know that, or anything

She seems like she really thinks she's on the right track. I wish that someone would encourage her to enter her dogs in schutzhund or in a show of some kind so that she can prove to the world how wonderful her dogs truly are!

BUT seems like she's already covered that. Show dogs are inferior in body type, apparently. Or so she says.

Sad. It's not the dogs' fault. They only have to live with the shoddy genetics they were born with.

Wow. Just wow. So...according to you there is a sub culture of wannabee native spinster women all trying to paint like Bev Doolittle out there? Dude, I don't know. Something about that whole paragraph totally rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe because...I don't know, these people you are describing are all PEOPLE, and individuals, and none of them are going to fit your stereotype 100%. People need to just stop typecasting others into little made up roles.

The criteria that I defined there go just that far. There are certainly people out there that meet that criteria, I know, because I met them. I didn't think it up first and find the people to fit it later. If they don't fit the description then they aren't the type I'm talking about? It's not like I'm saying that sums up their whole life or anything, the differences between them are vast, I'm talking about what they have in common. I'm not really sure what you mean by fitting 100%. If they are into metaphysical connections with their wolfdog (I'll admit, I don't know if it really is a wolfdog or a husky mix) and like native arts and crafts fit my typecast, which is defined by those things and nothing more, if not, they don't? The spinster thing was an observation that out of the six or so women I've met that are into the things I've listed above, 5 of them lived alone.

Is that an observation based on the fact there you have seen a trend of people who like to stereotype? Is it wrong to say there is a "type" of person who does that?

Uhh, that first picture with the Rottie by the old ugly sports car is in an Old issue of Dogs in Canada Annual I remember it clear as day as the ad was completely french and I couldn't figure out what it said. I'm looking to see if I still have that issue, it was a Quebec breeder that had that picture.

That would make sense, it says under the photo "The Fatman- prototype of our genetic program." Their stud is called Fatcat. Ugly sports car dog is what they aspired to, although their Fatcat is a perversion of even that dog.

The "paint" refered to is not art.... Its a breed of horse called a Paint, similar to a pinto.
