    Sam you are so right.. and some people just plain do not want to listen, learn or be educated... Some people even when they know better still refuse to do better...I will always be an advocate for the responsible breeders and the responsible owners and will continue to those who are not responsible either in breeding practices or in ownership practices. .Dogs , regardless of breed/mix, are living breathing beings, they need care, shelter, training and they are a responsibility.

      Wow Sam I just read your post again very carefully. I have never done dol facebook before . Maybe I should . I don' t do face book because when I did it was always just a bunch of immature kids hell bent on smearing somebody else's lives or that of their parents. That's why I have always stuck with the dol forum. If you are getting bad pm's from dol moderators for your tone on facebook dol whatever that is . Invite him to come over to the forum he should find plenty of reasons to rant at other people for the disaster changing this has created. I find it sad a mod found time to disparage you for a legitimate complaint as opposed to spending that time fixing problems. You think maybe they are suggesting they can not fix it or they just don't know how ?

        I know all of the DOL facebook Group admin/mods.. there are 4 of us... I can't imagine one of them sending a bad pm to anyone..... doesn't make sense.If anyone does send a bad pm to anyone no matter if member or admin, Debbie should be alerted since she is head admin on the DOL Facebook group..

                I was at the vet a few weeks ago with my non-dane dog :-) and in the waiting room was a lady with a horrible looking dane pup. I had seen her breeder magnets on her car in the parking lot so was naturally curious. Her pup looked horrible, swollen feet, rashes everywhere and it had been attacked and beat up on by the people's dogs she had sold it to and had nerve damage in it's neck and shoulder. So she at least took it back and had it at the vet. It looked really pitiful. Then she started telling everyone in the waiting room about all her breeding dogs, her "% euros, rare colors, etc." I felt sick. When I got home I looked her up, naturally. OMG-she was looking for a retirement home for her WHITE dane she could no longer breed, her page was full of poor conformation dogs, she wanted $3500 for a "lilac harlequin", bragged about her dogs carrying chocolate, brindlequin, fawnequin, etc AND she devoted an entire facebook post to bashing "save-a-dog" (rescue) people--like me. Then a week later she messaged my rescue organization, sorry--"save-a-dog" organization--to help her place the dog she had at the vet. Un-freakin-believable.
                I'm on a lot of facebook dog/puppy sites too and just have to stop scrolling for my blood pressure's sake.

                  I joined a local "Great Dane & Playdates" group and it's disgusting. They constantly are advertising BYB. I was appalled because a person joined and had asked for a vet recommendation for her female's spay procedure. Another member immediately said "you should hold off and breed her with my euro stud".

                  I stay on the page because I give advise to anyone who asks "where can I find puppies in the area" and lead them to reputable breeders or rescues.

                  No words. Sad to hear it's everywhere.

                    Before I retired as a vet tech a year ago..whenever someone came in with a Dane that they were considering breeding or came in looking for a Dane puppy I was always called on to go "speak to them" to educate them on how to find a responsible breeder or responsible breeding practices etc... I was always respectful and tried my best to educate them, I also kept info on responsible breeding, breed standard, health etc from the GDCNE so I could hand it out to them... some people were very reseptive and appreciative for the help others not so much.... had one particular client that wasn't and bred his 13 month old merle Dane with horrible conformation faults anyway...ended up with a C-section and a litter of 11 pups that had issues.... didn't learn bred her again on next heat...another C-section another large litter lost all but 4 within 3 weeks... of those 4, 2 ended up having seizures before they were 6 months old.. Mom started having seizures and ended up dying before she was 3 and when all was said and done the dad to the litter (which the guy also owned) died young due to genetic defects and all remaining pups also ended up dying by the time they were around a 12 -18 months. It gets frustrating.
