Yep there are more then just these guys there I agree with you. I guess because they know they are from a "breeder" and they are all "purebreds" .... is my guess
Just wanted to point out, in case it hasn't already been said...its NOT rare for purebreds to be in the shelters!! Of course these guys need good homes, but please don't forget about all the other PUREBREDs that end up at Lexington County Animal Control everyday, most of the time through no fault of their own. A bad breeder doesn't have to be busted for purebreds to end up at the shelter. Trust me, you name the breed and it shows up there....poodles, maltese, chi's, doxies, Rotties, GSD's, all of them...beautiful, purebreds available for adoption. All are worthy and need good homes, just like these poor babies that were seized.

today the animal control officer came out and drained the swimming pool with 2 big trucks. They will not say what they found there if anything. We should be able to find out when they do a press release next week, maybe on Monday. I wonder what is going to happen with this and how far it goes for crimes discovered.

Would've been cheaper to buy a trap than to replace insulataion, though.

I have just learned of the abuse this woman (or so called woman, I would say devil) put these animals through. I purchased a goldendoodle from her in 2006 and we absolutely love the dog! There were a few red flags at the time and now make perfect sense....we discussed our female puppy over the phone - FEMALE - our son was going through her area over thanksgiving and was picking the dog up, he called to inform us our FEMALE was a MALE and the breeder said she hadn't realized her friend took the last female, hmmmmmmmm? Red flag! O.K. so we just thought she was dumb! According to our son the male was adorable so we took him (not cheap either) and we absolutely love him! I will say on more than one occasion we ask our vet and instructor at dog obedience school why he was so skiddish, could he have been abused? Well it all makes sense now! I am sickened at the thoughts of giving this creature a dime of my money! She is not only dumb but evil! I feel sorry for her children if she has any! Some example she has set!

I knew Dawn raised Chinese Shar-Pei under the kennel name of Sleepei, but didn't know she raised Doodles. She has called me to buy a lilac before. I am the owner of the top Shar-Pei of all time, BIS, BISS, AKC and Canadian Ch. Shenanigans Storm Surge, ROM IV, who died in August, that she refers to in the Sleepei website, as her having a grandson of. We would like to have him of course. She bought him from someone who had bred to our dog, my husband championed that lady's male son of our dog, and Dawn bought a son of that male.
I have been on the phone with the AKC, the West Columbia police, the Lexington Sheriff's office, and Animal Control in Lexington. Of course the latter can't give details until the investigation is over. I hope someone will keep me posted at [email protected] Thanks, Susan Lauer
