Sounds like what I'd be doing. Sheesh.
Sounds like what I'd be doing as well. Freehold is doing all she can and has explained herself nicely and has been met by nothing but abrasive accusatory behavior.
I hope everything works out.. but just some advice from a third party, I would suggest looking long and hard at what you both expect from each other and working on communication before going any further.
I don't know about you but the breeder/puppy owner relationship to me is supposed to be about honesty, advice and support and frankly, sire/dam or great home or not.. if the relationship isn't there, I would take a long hard look at this situation and the chances of all of this ending in a way where everyone is happy.
well it's nice to know that if you are picking on me you are leaving other's alone.
so sad when persons are unable to read and assimilate
somewhat like jackels
No one is picking on anyone here... It's all in your perception. I would be EXTREMELY freaked out if someone found me on a different forum purposely.
That would be the issue.. You stalked your breeder across the net. As a buyer, you have been awfully pushy. If I bred, I would likely be turning you down for the creep factor. You may make a great home for a pup, but it seems like you are harassing Freehold a little too much. Take a breath and a step back.
I have made my decision about the puppy, and the buyer. Thank-you for your suggestions, I have decided to follow them as I think that I'd go crazy coping with this stuff for the lifetime of whatever puppy she gets. Considering that things got heated on the other board again and things were said that were not only inflammatory but that put my reputation as a breeder in question. Well, it's not worth it to me. I don't need a puppy sale, even to a very good home, that much. There are other buyers out there. So now I have 2 boys and a girl to find homes for...
Aww that is too bad Freehold. If only my house was bigger ....
Yes, Dekka, I think that your house would be totaled in a matter of minutes of having a Wolfie. I can squeeze one in here if needed, but my mom's house is much better suited. They may be quiet natured, but they are huge.
I would totally consider it if I could! Good luck ^^
I'm glad you found out her real self before it was too late. I'm sure the pups will find wonderful homes!
I literally breathed a sigh of relief for you.
Good luck placing the pups. I'm sure that this all happened for a reason. Y'know, fate and all.
So sorry for all the drama!
**Sticking fingers over her eyes and whistling about pups needing homes....Quke was supposed to be a wolfie but I just couldnt pass him up**
It happens... I just appreciate the straight-forward advice and support you guys have offered. I tried my best, thing just didn't work out the way I wanted.
You did it right -- you asked, sincerely, for honest opinions on your actions, freely and openly without pointing any fingers or dragging the drama in.
Everything will work out as it should
Wise decision, Freehold. I can't imagine you'll have too much trouble finding good homes for your lovely pups. You're doing it right. There'll be buyers.
You made the right decision, Freehold. I wouldn't place a puppy with a buyer like that either.
Since a breeder/owner relationship can last a decade, IMO it's as important to have compatibility there as with any other relationship. I suspect with how things went downhill in this thread alone, this was not a relationship that was destined to prosper, so I think Freehold made the right choice. Good luck to both parties.
