Jo`s Chihuahua Puppies
If We as Pet Owners and Breeders don`t keep up with the anti breeding policies and Bills being Introduced
in our laws , soon we will no longer be able to have or Breed pets or any other animals. PEOPLE PLEASE PAY ATTENTION. WRITE
LETTERS,MAKE CALLS, DO YOU PART IN STOPPING THIS NONSENSE!
If dog shelters were really so full why do the Big Cities Import small dogs from other Countries?
They are not making any money so they import to have pups and small breed adults to sell.
> This is from an Airedale list. Please, if you wish to
continue owning and maybe even breeding dogs ANYWHERE in the United States, please read this post and do some serious
thinking. You might be required to provide a minimum of 150 sq. ft. for each of your Cavaliers to be kept ALONE,
will you be able to provide this type of sace? How would your Cavaliers like this arrangement? I know mine want
to be on the sofa together, preferably with my husband or myself there with them, not stuck alone in a 150 sq foot
> My best,
> Right now, animal rights
people have fanned out across the country to make what got tabled in California happen city by city, town by town, state
by state. The approach is to local animal services organization;
> the agenda is new animal laws that will
have a startling effect on our ability to enjoy our dogs. The AR volunteers work within the animal services in
city after city, town after town, to get a proposed law put together that is extreme to say the least, and they can
do all of this within animal services without worrying about open meeting laws.
> After all, the AR
people are simply volunteers helping the staff. By the time a community gets any inkling that these laws are about to
hit the stage, it's just about too late to stop them. At the most, people try to get some of the most severe terms
> Right now, there is a law proposed in Florida to make collecting animal semen
> Now that I have your attention, let me share with you what is currently being recommended
in Dallas, what Animal Services and the City Council are assuming will be law by the end of the month, and to date,
nothing in the local newspapers, the local news programs, or even a copy of the actual proposed law. Unlike San Antonio,
the previous last city to fall to these tactics, the AKC kennel club registered in Dallas, the Texas Kennel Club,
has hired an animal lawyer to help them fight this legislation. But to date, without any news coverage, very few residents
know what is about to happen and how it will affect their enjoyment of their dogs.
> 1. Pet
limits. Dallas has never had limits on the number of pets a resident may own. As with most communities, there are plenty
of laws on the books that can handle households that have too many pets that are creating a neighborhood nuisance
or constituting cruelty to animals. Under the proposed new laws, the limit will be either five or six pets (no one
seems able to get a consistent reading on the number). That is dogs, cats or combination in a single family home.
2. Mandatory spay neuter by four months of age. Owner of unspayed or
unneutered dogs and cats over 4 months of age commits an offense if the owner does not have a Breeder Permit issued
annually for each individual animal. (Only dog and cat show breeders qualify for this permit). Owner cannot have
a say in their dog being put under anesthesia, being made a perennial puppy by losing the hormones needed for balanced
growth of body and mind, etc.
> 3. Breeder permits/licenses (and the only article that has mentioned anything
about this law was a quote by the acting director of animal services, a man who has won an award of some kind of merit
from PETA: in that article, this man stated that he would not allow any breeder permits in residential neighborhoods). So
what will a breeder license look like in Dallas if the law is passed without changes.
It appears that there will be:
> A. Breeder permit / license
to keep an intact dog or cat. Breeders can apply to Animal Services for a breeder permit/license. Such applications
must be approved by the director of Animal Services.
> B. Each dog or cat approved for a permit must be
registered with a national registry (approved by the animal services director) AND whose owner is a member of
a purebred dog or cat club (also approved by the animal services director). The club must have a code of ethics
breeding dogs and cats with genetic defects and life threatening health problems for approval.
breeder permit will be $500 annually for EACH intact
> animal; the animal's license will be an additional
> D. This permit will not be available to any other pet owner. And as mentioned above, it is unlikely
that the current Animal Services administration will allow any of these permits/licenses in residential neighborhoods.
This means that sports people, performance people, SAR people, hunting people will have to have their animals neutered.
E. Anyone who gets a breeder permit agrees that Animal Services has the right to send in someone to make unannounced
inspections of their premises at any time and the breeders must admit them.
> F.. No one else can legally
breed animals in Dallas.
> 4. No tethering of any dogs if the owner is not present.
5. Confined dogs must have crates or runs or pens that meet confinement requirements of 150 feet pen size per dog
> 6. Foster Care Providers must obtain a form from the director to apply for a permit (notarized
by the legal owner and one occupant of the dwelling unit) to keep up to 10 dogs, cats or any combination which authorizes
unannounced inspections of premises and this permit must be approved by the director.
I first read these proposed ideas, I thought that they were making them so outrageous so they would have wiggle room
in order to reduce things like the permit fee for breeders etc. But given the fact that hearings are going into
their second week (only on Wednesdays), there has been no media coverage, and proponents are saying that they expect
these to be law by the end of the month, I suspect that the final law could be quite close to what is outlined above.
> The first that I heard about it was in March, and I heard about it from two people who are very
involved with the kennel club and with getting people to attend hearings.
No cost assessments/analyses have been done. Animal Services is currently underfunded,
and the mayor has
made it clear that there will be no increase in their funding for
So, here we are discussing different ways of training, recognizing the work that goes into having an obedience or agility
champion, knowing what the dogs need maturity to participate in any serious sport or work, and all the while, across
the country, more and more of these laws are becoming law with little or no fanfare.
Here in Dallas,
the proponents are saying that this will solve the problem of loose dogs breeding randomly, but the only people that
will be caught up are the residential breeders whose dogs never run loose and never breed randomly.
With the requirement that a breeder belong to a breed club approved by animal
services, this is also meant to do
away with mixed breeds.
Do, please, check out what may be happening
in your city or town, and be ready to fight for your right to decide when and if your dog will be neutered, the
right of careful breeders to breed to their breed standards, etc. Dallas breeders and animal lovers are making a valiant
effort, and they are grateful for the help of the Texas Kennel Club,but this is very, very serious. And it sounds like it
will come to a city or town near you.

This message is from Karen Strange. You may not know her, but she has done more to protect your rights
as a hobby breeder than anyone else on the planet.
She has made your life much easier. She started a movement and she has with all courage and
strength carried through and made life easier for us all.
She is now working to protect the rights of commercial
breeders, and no matter how you feel about commercial breeders they are raising healthy dogs.
they are part of the fight against the Animal Rightists. If their rights are taken away from them you will also lose your
rights. We are in this together and until we understand that if we do not unite to fight the animal rightists we will all
fall, we cannot hope to have generations of
dogs in the future. we must unite for a common cause to protect ownership rights
so that there will be pups in our and our children's futures.
She has had a long road and has battled many storms
for many years. She is weary and she deserves our strength and help now. She has done more to protect your rights as a hobby
breeder than anyone else on the planet.
Here is a message from Karen Strange printed with permission:
Considering the wave of comments about the Oprah Show not being as bad as some anticipated, I want to make some points
from the politically incorrect perspective.
For those who know me, I've never been politically
correct and have absolutely
no intentions of starting now.
My Politically Incorrect Comments:
1. I owned and bred show dogs
for many years, creating my own bloodlines for the traits I desired. I championed many of them even though I was told
it would be impossible for a novice to show black chow bitches and finish
them without a handler. I finished three
of them myself along with numerous others and ignored the comments.Were all of the dogs I produced show quality? No.
Were there any pets among them? Yes. Do I apologize for breeding and producing them? No. Never have. Never will.
2. I have owned dogs for 32 years. I have never owned a mixed breed dog or a dog from a questionable background. I don't
want a dog from a shelter, pound or rescue. I want dogs from breeders. Since all of my chows have died
old age, I have switched to smaller dogs. ALL of them were BOUGHT from a professional licensed commercial breeder. DO
I apologize for that?
3. I was told eighteen years ago by the "mother of the animal rights
movement" in Missouri that for every ONE of my dogs I bred, a thousand dogs died in shelters. It was my fault for breeding
them when so many needed homes. And, because my dogs were intact, I was creating an overpopulation
I leaned across the table, looked the old gal ( sorry, I don't consider her a lady), directly in the eye and said,
"I have several butcher knives in my kitchen drawer and they have the capacity to kill people. That does not mean that
I'm a murderer." The debate carried on for more than two hours. I never wavered from my position and
have not to this day. I have no intentions of changing.
4. I have been told many times that when I buy from a breeder,
shelter and pound dogs will die, and that I should "adopt" one of those instead.
Not everyone wants a dog
from a shelter, pound or rescue. I am one of those people. I DO NOT WANT a dog from any of those sources. If I could no longer
buy from a breeder, I WOULD NOT HAVE A DOG AT ALL. I do not like 40 pound
black lab mixes that are available in
my area. Don't tell me that there are purebreds available from those sources. I do not want a dog with no pedigree,
no registration papers and a questionable background. This is America. I want to exercise my right as a citizen to participate
in the free
enterprise system and purchase a dog from the place of my choice or to breed the dogs I want. Telling
me that I should not breed a dog or buy from a breeder until all dogs are adopted from shelters, pounds and rescues
is like telling people they should have no more children until all without homes
are adopted. It will never
happen. And, I have been around the block too many times and see what is behind this campaign. It is a money-making, control-seeking
agenda that has nothing to do with animals and everything to do with taking away the rights of individuals, thereby creating
a socialist state. It is an attempt by emotional flocks of sheep in people's clothing
demanding a cornering
of the market to create a monopoly completely controlled by themselves and their chosen few. Sorry, I am not falling
for it, so it does no good to preach to me about it nor does it do any good to keep shoving legislation in my face
to try to force it on me and those I represent. I will use every political technique possible to kill the disgusting
animal rights agenda and will do so with absolutely no feelings
of remorse or guilt.
5. I do not believe in a socialist agenda that dictates what I can and should
do with my animals in my own home. I do not support true animal abuse and neglect, but I believe in using common sense
rather than lynch-mob emotion when making such judgments.
6. I become even more angered and determined to
kill legislation when I receive reports of threats and harassment against those I represent following a ratings-seeking,
money making piece of propaganda as was featured Friday on television. When I receive calls from breeders who are
genuinely afraid for their families and their animals, it infuriates me to the point of lobbying even harder against
animal rights activists. Do threats to my members make me more sympathetic towards activists?
However, I will use those threats as a basis to kill legislation at the capitol! So, each time my people are threatened
in any manner, it costs the activists dearly. Keep threatening and I will keep killing your legislation. I believe
7. I am angered because people fall to their knees and hang their heads in embarrassment for enjoying
their animals. I am disgusted that people fail to stand up against a torrent of propaganda based on lies, deceit, theft,
and the elimination of their rights as American citizens. I am fed up with pleading for people to help in this fight
but they always have the excuse
of being too busy. Well so am I, but what does that have to do with it?!! If breeders
and animal owners don't wake up and see what is coming at them head-on, they will soon have all the time in the world to devote
to flower gardening and golf because there darn sure won't be any animals to enjoy!!
8. Do I have a guilty conscience
for my lack of "compassion"? No, not in the least and the prospects for changing don't look good. Do I care if I don't seem
politically correct? Nope.
If I sound angry, it's because I am. I'm sick and tired of people who fall for emotional
propaganda and can't see that they're being duped. As I've quoted in my speeches many times,
"How sad that
people follow like sheep and ask no questions."
I've spent much of my time in the last year traveling to the east
where I've been invited to speak to various Amish communities about the animal rights movement. They are being
heavily targeted because the animal rights activists don't believe they will fight back. Well guess what!!!
Are they perfect in the care of their dogs? I answer that with a
question of my own....... is every dog interest
perfect? Are ALL hobby/show people running a perfect kennel? Are ALL rescues running their operations in
hospital-like surroundings? Are ALL shelters spotlessly clean and free of
disease and dirt? Are ALL commercial kennels
operating 100% to Animal Welfare Act requirements?
There are good and bad apples in every facet of animal
ownership. The Amish are no different. Many of them I have visited have absolutely immaculate kennels with state
of the art operations. I have seen good and bad in every industry. What angers me is that there are a number of animal
owners who are relieved to see another part of the industry targeted in
order to take the heat off themselves. Rather
than standing shoulder to shoulder to help their fellow man, they choose to point fingers at everyone else, hoping
that by continuing to "feed the crocodile, it will eat everyone else first". Rather than helping, it's easier to point
fingers and say "take them first as long as you leave me alone".
I spent last week-end helping the Amish in an eastern
state. They presented their first breeder's seminar with guest speakers from throughout the Midwest educating them
on all facets of kennel management and animal care. I spoke on the origin of the animal rights movement and how to
When speaking to new groups, I tell them what the animal rights movement is, how it affects them, how the propaganda
and guilt play a large part in the money-making control schemes put forth by the media and various
what to do to counteract it. I close my speeches with the following: "If we are aware of what is happening in the animal
rights movement and the evil agenda it presents, and we fail to stop it, then we will surely get what we deserve and
our children will inherit that which we failed to do."
Written without guilt by Karen Strange, President &
this is a long story but this kennels` dogs have been seized and already spayed or neutered and SOLD for 350+ each
by the humane society BEFORE going to court. They were healthy.....and if they were so unhealthy how were they able
to spay and neuter them and adopt out in less than 2 wks......i think they are doing this for money. how are they
so different from us? they are caging their dogs and selling them for a profit now!
HELP --please write a small sentence as i did so he can forward to the appropriate people. dont' sit
back and do nothing, it could be you next! just another example of what is going on and we have to get involved!!!!
If I have sent this to you and you dont have a kennel, your rights as pet owners are also being attacked. ie,
limiting the number of dogs you can own or mandatory spay or neuter----it's all coming--get involved NOW before its too
late! Go to www.pet-law.com
and see all the attacks that are going on around the U.S.!
