hi Wissymo

just wondering on a totally irrelevant basis - how do you manage to keep your white rug so white with a doodle in the house :shock: :)

I've just had a look at the Tegan website - all the dogs are described as "lots" and although a few are advertised as "pet homes preferred", the majority seem to have their attributes listed to be more focused breeding rather than looking for loving "forever" homes.

How very sad :cry:

Oh dear....

How terrible over 40 dogs up for auction with the starting prices varying from $500 to $18,500! :shock:

The new homes will clearly not be vetted as the dogs are to be shipped out in lots - poor things :cry:

Mind you they might get a chance of a better life when they leave the puppy farm.

Oh dear, isn't it sad to see dogs marked up as lots and regarded as just assets to be sold of regardless. I know it's the same for farm animals but you would hope at least dogs would be thought of as in need of checks on who buys them.

What on earth has happened to Lot 27 with the bulging cheeks (or did that one at least have a toy to play with and upset the photographer :lol:

The only good thing is that they are probably far too expensive for the UK puppy farms to bother with importing. Don't know about the American market.

I know I'm not in the dog breeding business but if I was and I was closing down I don't think I would have the heart to sell them in lots but would try to find buyers for each one individually that I was happy with and I thought would care for them. In my opinion Tegan Park was clearly just another puppy farm making a lot of money, for all their fancy hype.

Its easy to make money when you have no ethics, breed your bitches illegally, pay few taxes, have no breeding licence, don't have planning permission, don't pay business rates, and consistently lie to the public, all or most of the above! Puppy farmers rake it in :( These people are never strapped for cash, its the honest breeder that struggles.

Tegan Park who are auctioning these poor animals have little regard for the dogs who have provided a huge income for them for many years :shock: :shock:

I think you are missing the point Sheldon :?

I'm really shocked :shock: I've always dreamed of owning an Aussie labradoodle one day but there is no way I would buy from Tegan/Rutland - they are just heatless puppy farmers! How can anyone just sell off their dogs to the highest bidder? :evil:

They are sooooooo expensive! (and that's before the shipping costs). I never realised that by importing an Australian labradoodle you were inadvertently supporting a puppy farm. :shock:

One bitch has already had 3 litters and they are selling her as a breeding bitch. :shock:

Anyway, I actually like the look of our UK scruffy doods best! (but I am biased of course!) :lol:
