Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Sorry for the disgust and heartbreak you will feel when you see these pictures. They were dumped in the Harnett County Animal Shelter, NC. The DRC is pulling them because there is a volunteer that is there Doodle Angel! She will make sure that they will be groomed and vetted.
This is what the parents of pet store and internet sales of doodles look like. I am still ashamed that my Samantha came from a pet store before I was educated. It is our duty to educate the next one that doesn't know about puppy mills so breeder dogs like these 3 will not have a 'job'!
This is what Jacquie wrote on the DRC FB page.
This is so horrifically sad that I am literally in tears.......These girls are 11 years old, have been bred to death and are undoubtedly heartworm positive........ We are quite familiar with the "breeder" who keeps dumping doodles at the Harnett County Shelter.....We have had over 14 doodles in our program from Harnett within the last 2 years and all were dumped there by this same person. It seems this person dumps in 3-4 month increments. That's the cycle and we have been waiting and watching Harnett for months now anticipating the next dump. Every dog we have pulled has been heartworm positive with the exception of the 2 chocolate puppies and the 3 young Aussiedoodle boys we pulled late last year. Every dog needed thousands of dollars in care and every dog needed months of rehabbing in foster care. A small price to pay to save lives....Our concern for these girls is their age in relation to the years they have been living with heartworm. They are most certainly infested, have probably lived their entire lives this way and if that is indeed the case, have more than likely sustained pulmonary damage that will compromise their health and quality of life for the remainder of their years.
I just called the shelter and spoke with Steve Berubi the shelter director and animal control officer. These girls are indeed 11 and yes they were dumped at the shelter by the person formrly operating as "Cape Fear Labradoodles"
One or more of these dogs are probably the parents of: Lacey (Lucy), Ella, Ruby, perhaps Willow, Jenny and Cassidi....
Looks like the one on the left has been shaved
this is a pure bred poodle - even the purebreds are not safe from living a life of hell!
So numbers 15, 16 and 17 will be safe! I will post pictures and keep you updated on how they are doing when I know. Please send prayers, that even though the chances are incredibly infinitesimal that they are not heartworm positive!
To our Angel Volunteer - bless you!!!!
there were 4, not 3. The one we thought was shaved is #4!!
2 girls are between 5-7, 1 girl is under 3 and the Chocolate boy is 11. All stink, matted, very sweet, well mannered, a bit shy, but the most incredible news is, are you ready for this??
all 4 heartworm NEGATIVE!!! Can you believe it!!! The groomer says that they are so matted that there was no way for any insect to get to get to their skin! The shelter managersaid that these might have been her personal dogs since they are in the best shape that this woman has ever dumped in their shelter.
I will post pictures as soon as I get them! Thank you all for you prayers and positive thoughts - G-d heard them!!!
This is just disgusting. Bless all of the volunteers that are helping them. I hope they get to know the good side of humans, too, thanks to your efforts.
I can't stand it, I thank God for the doodle angels who take care of these babies. I pray to God when I am well that I can be a more active part of helping in any way I can.
I so never wish anyone harm ever.. it is not my style or even in my thoughts but I pray with all my heart that these people are immediately shut down somehow....
This is just so sad it makes my heart hurt. Thanks to DRC angels for helping these doodles out. My first hope is that they aren't heartworm positive.
I can't even find words fit to type. I just can't believe that the law can't do something about this person. Arrest her and shut her down...something...anything...maybe we need vigilantes to come in during the night and rescue every last one of the dogs on her property! This is the most disgusting thing ever...those poor beautiful dogs. What did they ever do to deserve this treatment? Boy, I gotta go calm myself down not...whewwww
I just don't understand how this so called human being can still be doing this. Cape "FEAR" is right. I know everyone is doing their best to stop this sort of behavior but what is it going to take to really get the person out of this business. Sickens me to the core.
Someday this person will get her just deserts!!!!!!!
Thank you for pulling these beautiful girls...a miracle is needed, please God, let them test negative.
This makes me furious! If the Animal Control and shelter operator know who the perpetrator is - THEN WHY AREN'T THEY FINDING A WAY TO SHUT THEM DOWN? Why is this person(s) allowed to keep dumping dogs? Yes these tragic girls need all the love and help they can get but if the cycle isn't stopped - then this is just sticking a finger in the leaking dam. I'm with who ever suggested a raid - maybe I should add "being arrested" to my bucket list!!!!
And one more thing - I find nothing if I google Cape Fear Labradoodles, I think we can "help" ha ha this a$$ of a breeder by spreading the word on the internet. So why is the actual name of the person not being said? Why not proclaim the truth for the world to see?
I did find a blog post on a goldendoodle website from back in 2006 about a GD someone bought from Cape Fear kennels in NC.
These people keep changing the names of their "businesses" to avoid detection. They also used the personal names of various family members to hide further. That's why you can't find it. I looked too.
Cape Fear Kennels is now a pit bull breeder. I would like to believe that her name is not being said in order to not interfere with any investigation being done by HSUS. Telling her name won't do anything but make her assume another name and move on. At least now we know where she dumps her girls (and guys) and we can save them. I pray to see her on tv one day.
