Can anyone tell me how you find out if there has been complaints filed against breeders? I was searching online but could not find anything. I had to put my purebred maltese to sleep yesterday it was one of the hardest things I ever did, he has been aggressive since a young pup and he would only have been 3 yrs old in Nov. I was just wondering if theres a way to find out history on the breeders. After purchasing my dog the owner had a litter of pups for sale 6 months later? Seems too soon? And the brother to my dog is also an aggressive dog. Just curious if anyone could help?
You can check your local animal control, another resource is the couny court house. Criminal and civil cases are public record. The only way the better buisness bureau will have anything is if the buisness is an affilate.
I am not sure there is much you can do about the aggression, It would be up to you to prove it was genetic and not due to enviormental factors like training...and even then the judge still may not see as a fault.
It's not illegal to breed a dog 2 heats in a row...it's not smart, but not illegal.
I believe a dog's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment he holds dear, is when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-with a ball in his mouth."
so sorry for your loss. my heart goes out for you. i looked at ** but the easiest is to get the name of other buyers and call. talk to many breeders. if you have a gut feeling - trust in yourself. 6 months and only 1 female is absolutely poor ethics. mom needs time too. ant breeder who has a problem with references is one to stay away from! good luck.
