Re: Pretty Penny Kennels
To whom it
The reason I am writing is a result from my recent visit to the Pretty Penny
Kennels in Plymouth, WI. My husband and I are in the process of getting a
weimaraner and unfortunately the mother lost all of her puppies. We were
supposed to get the puppy within the next couple of weeks, which has now been
postponed until February. Since we were so excited about getting the puppy in
August, we thought we would check the paper to see what else is out there. We
stumbled across an ad that said they had weimaraner puppies for sale and ready
to go. We decided to make the hour trip to check out the puppies and maybe end
up with a puppy in August after all.
Well, I'm sure I do
not need to inform you of the conditions of this puppy mill. It was one of
those things that you instantly knew that something was not right. Since I
don't know anything about breeding dogs, I wasn't sure what to think at first.
I wasn't sure if this was normal or not, but I had this awful feeling the whole
time. I read the article written by Elizabeth Meadows and she made a statement
about the sad look in all the dogs' eyes. That is something that I was
constantly thinking about is how sad the mom weim looked. It almost made me
cry. I also agree that at the time I wasn't able to process it all and now
thinking back to it all I cannot believe how terrible that place is.
are so many things that I would like to discuss about this place but I will
just get to my biggest concern. I noticed that the interview that was done on
this place was back in 1999! That is just sick!! If I didn't know that
the interview took place in 1999 I would have thought it was a recent interview
because the place is exactly the same. These people have no morals and
this place needs to be shut down.
I read that because the dogs were 'in good health' they were not violating any
laws. Well, these weims were not in good health. 3 of the puppies had quarter
sized open wounds on their bellys that they were not really able to explain to
I know this letter
is kind of choppy and I apologize. I just had all of these thoughts going
through my head and decided to do some research and stumbled upon all of this
info on them. I would like to know what I can to do help. I know there is info
on what to do to help, but clearly, that is not working. These sick people have
been in business for 40 years! Please reply back to me on what I can do to help
shut these people down.
Thank you for
