Way to go Sparks, I loved the way they blew you off and said your answers were on their website, any moron (who would buy their pups) would probably say "oh, I must have missed it somewhere, they must be ok if they put that information on their website."

The pictures on the website, looked sickly animated and I was absolutely disgusted at the basset hound, which I agree did not look like a basset hound at all!!!

I feel for these poor pups and pray they end up in decent homes or someone cracks down on this breeder.

Oh, and it was disturbing to me too the fact that they said labs were dumb...I have never seen a dumb dog before, maybe a dumb owner or breeder, but not a dumb dog!

Somehow I doubt the mill this discussion is about would ever do anything like this, but it is common among reputable breeders to guarantee hips and to do testing beyond breeding stock is becoming more common.

BTW, my last litter is now 6 years old, and still, no hip problems
I believe that's what any good breeder would do. They can guarantee the hips of their dogs because of extensive testing and re-testing of sucessive generations. You learn which animals have the best hips and breed only from them, thus reducing the risk of your dogs developing displaysia. - Something I don't believe this kennel is doing.

But as great as your breeders are, you still can't guarantee that any of your dogs will never have displastic hips, (and you have implemented a very generous return/refund policy if that should happen.) I was just trying to say that in my earlier post, but I probably mangled it.

I didn't see anywhere on that site that they actually do OFA their hips, all I saw was how many times they stressed that OFA ratings are unreliable and basically useless. I would guess that means they don't OFA, and try to justify that decision by underminig the reason for OFA in the first place.

For those interested the Iridell County Humane Society replied saying that the Kennel is not in their district. She informed me that kennels are under the regulations of the Agriculture Dept. of NC and that the local Animal Control in that county could be contacted.

Like every single BYBer or puppymill out there It' s seems like there are several layers of b***s**t that they use. "There are no problems with ___ in my dogs, so I don't need to test." and "The tests aren't 100% accurate anyway...."

The chick at the Iredell county HS said it was in Cleveland county...which I guess would make sense, considering the kennel is in Cleveland.

How should I know? The Iredell County Humane society just told me it wasn't:

Thank you for your concern for these puppies. Although Cleveland is not in
Iredell County
. Just so know you know though kennels fall under the
regulations of the Agriculture Dept. of N.C. Also you can contact the local
Animal Control in that county. Contacting both agencies would be your best
bet. Hope this helps.
I live in Texas, not North Carolina...I took the word of someone who lives there. You'll have to forgive me.
