Unprofessional Dog Breeders

Location: Other, Marquette Heights
Industry: Other
Annoyed By: www.heavensenteskies.com


I emailed this company asking them how much they're puppies were because it didn't say on their website. I got a response, but I forgot to ask how much the deposit was because the only fee listed online was the shipping price. So I also ask the deposit amount and he responds by telling me the price and then proceeds to tell me to refer to the FAQs on their website for other questions. To me, that was offensive. I asked my husband to read the email and asked him if he also thought it was a rude email. He agreed it was. So I emailed the owner saying that if I couldn't ask him questions without him referring me back to his website, I don't need to be doing business with him. He responds with this:

Wendy,

You're a little too sensitive to be a dog owner. I would suggest buying a goldfish or maybe a pet rock. You're crybaby attitude is prone to yelling, screaming and temper tantrums. Please don't waste the time of a reputable breeder.

Sincerely,

Jamel Hamka

I can understand him being upset, but to judge me and tell what kind of person I am is completely unprofessional and immature. He didn't even need to respond to that email with such insults or at all. I am an American Soldier serving my country in Iraq, defending his freedoms and this is the thanks I get. This is beyond unacceptable.

  1. As Wendy put it "I can understand him being upset..." She e-mailed a very offensive e-mail which resulted in this reply. Afterwards (less than 24 hours) Wendy's husband e-mailed me to apologize for his wife's rude e-mail. I then responded to Wendy with an apology. They accepted and all is well.

  3. Why isn't there any information regarding health testing on this breeder's websight? They state that the American Eskimo dog has little health problems....What about PRA or Hip Dysplasia? Juvenile cataracts or diabetes?
    I see no titles on any of their breeding adults. Are they of breeding quality compared to the UKC standard?

    It seems that "what makes them different from many other American Eskimo breeders" is they are breeding without thought to health or adherence to the breed standard of the UKC.

    Why are they also using the kennel name Platinum Eskies?

    Seems like they shoul be putting a lot more answers on their FAQ page.

    Puppies are not ready to leave their dams at 6wks! There is valuable lessons that dams teach their puppies well past weaning.

    Sounds like Wendy had a right to worry. I'd say run away from this one.

    Best way to find a reputable breeder is contact the national breed club of either the UKC or AKC. They will put you in contact with breeders who adhere to the basic MINIMUM health testing. They also show their dogs in conformation events to help determine that they are indeed of breeding quality.

    AKC registration has limited registration available for breeders to block out which is probably why their dogs are not AKC registered. The original breeders most likely recognized that they were not of breeding quality and probably sold on a spay/neuter contract, required by reputable breeders.

    A little too shady for my taste!

  4. "Shady"? How can I be shady when everything on my website is upfront and honest on my website. The only thing that's "shady" is your research on my website.

    As it states on Angel's page (http://heavensenteskies.com/Angel.html), she comes from Platinum Eskies. As it states on Platinum Eskies page (http://www.platinumeskies.com/plannedlitters.html)that we co-own Heaven Sent Eskies. I live in Virginia and own solely Platinum Eskies. My mother lives in Illinois and she operates Heaven Sent Eskies. I help her with web design and customer relations as it says on Heaven Sent Eskies About Us page.

    I'm absolutely tired of reading jealous eskie breeders trying to grasp at smoke. I have never been "shady" or "less than truthful." If you want to argue with me about health testing, puppies leaving the nest, spay/neuter contract then lets talk. If not stop passing lies that I'm not upfront and honest.

  5. Wow, this "breeder" sounds shady and uneducated. I think its best that you look for another, more reputable and trustworthy breeder.

  6. lies? facts? or opinions? Hmmmm, much of what you read on the internet is based on opinions. Whether you chose to believe an opinion of one person or another, I can tell you for a fact that if a breeder is doing health testing, the should have certificates of such. I suggest to puppy buyers that they ask to see them. OFA has a searchable database for dogs which have been evaluated for Hip Dysplasia. I've seen the certificates and searched on the OFA website.

    If this breeder is so upfront and honest I suggest that a potential buyer ask to see such documentation. If they're doing health testing they won't hesitate at all to show you. If they aren't, they'll tip toe around the subject or even say, "I lost the certificate"

    If this breeder is so upfront and honest, why does he breed? What does this breeder hope to achieve? I've asked these questions to breeders and come up with a variety of answers. Reputable breeders are passionate about their reasons for breeding.

    Get to know a potential breeder. I am friends with the breeder of my dogs and have gotten to know her over several years.

    As a puppy buyer and previous owner of a Reskie, I've done my best to become informed about the breed and health conditions within the breed. Frankly I've spoken with numerous reputable breeders and in my opinion they have nothing to be jealous of. Just the pictures of his dogs scream inferiour quality. What's unfortunate though is the aspect that he may may not give a darn about the health of the animals he's creating.


    The joy of the internet.......my opinion!
