Adam informed me that Meena (born in 2018) was out of a broken contract wherein the previous owner told him they lost the dog; Meena was actually supposed to be bred under a co-ownership agreement. As a result, if I wanted the registration on Meena I would need to breed her for Adam. I told Adam upfront that my goal was to have a competition dog and I wanted registration for her. I had Meena assessed for potential in IGP & PSA. I wanted to at least BH her before the breeding and I have a good friend who wanted to AD her as well. In an ideal world she would have been at least IPO1 or PSA1 first. Additionally she is halfway to her first title in AKC even though I do not have papers for her, just a registration number under Adam's name. However it didn't make sense to join an IGP/PSA club and spend the funds to title a dog when I don't have registration in my name. Adam rejected all my offers to title Meena in IGP or PSA and choose to push me to breed her without any titling. Out of my own pocket I paid for Meena's OFAs, Embark, entry fees for AKC trials, and IGP & PSA assessed.
Adam informed me he would be offering a titled and tested stud, however, that stud that was not tolerant of other dogs so I would need to place my other male. I did as he told me. However after picking up Sarge Mineo we found no records of the stud being titled anywhere (DVG, WDA, etc) despite being from a good pedigree. Sarge was filthy, covered in his own feces, and his teeth are in dreadful shape for a six year old dog. Adam now states he never promised a titled stud and that I got a "good looking lawn ornament" to keep and I should keep him since he will want additional breedings. Nonsense we have the (audio/text) recording of this. Sarge is almost seven years old, has worn teeth, doesn't out, doesn't even appear to know how to heel, doesn't even know how to down or send out... so by the time he would be ready for an IPO1 he would likely be eight. We could not come to agreement for co-owning him. According to Adam, I should just appreciate a “quality” dog and let him live his life.
On 9/1/22 the eight puppies were born. Adam informed me that he was taking half of the litter. I agreed on the contingent that I have registration papers for Meena as previously agreed.. Adam did register Meena in AKC, but registered the dog in only his name. I contacted AKC every week since and this has not changed. Whenever I’d ask him questions regarding registration, the dogs, or co-own he resorts to verbally insulting me. He now demands that we end the co-ownership, demanding that I bring both adults and his half of the litter to him. I’ve never once insulted Adam or talked down to him until it became apparent that I wasn’t getting anything and I had one too many insults from him.
Pups turn 8 weeks on the Sept 24th. I gave Adam the dates of Oct 1 & 2nd as dates when I would be available for him to come down to pick up his half of the litter. He stated he would arrive that Sunday (25th). I informed him I would be at work the 15th once again I was available the first and second. Adam then accused me of trying to keep puppies from him and that I was screwing him over. He went on to state this is why I would never get my puppies or bitches papers. He then compared to the woman he dealt with who had my bitch before me stated, “why don’t you hang around with the Trailer Trash that you belong with.” In our closing argument on 9/21/22 and he stated I should have fun selling 8 “un-papered” puppies along with 2 “un-papered” adult dogs and I either do it his way or it’s the highway. His word’s verbatim.
How does it make sense that Adam does not provide papers for the bitch I've had since March and now demands that I drive his half of the puppies to him. Now he intends to keep the mother who I have had since March, is bonded to my kids, and I wanted to keep and title? Now I will not have my name listed on the keeper puppies registration despite doing the actual breeding and will not be able to trial my keeper in the BHOT category and both parents are untitled despite all my offers to title Meena. This does not make sense for a so called reputable breeder. I told him I would not send Meena back to him and he has become very combative saying this is my "first litter of quality" and "you are not dictating the terms to me". How is it a litter of quality when both parents have zero titles despite all my efforts to do title Meena?
When I contacted Adam I was more than willing to work with him and I have been extremely patient. I have heard and tolerated many insults whenever I have stood up for myself, trying to make this work so that I can keep this prospect I have already invested money & time into.
Admin if you would like proof of anything above I am happy to provide it. Thank you
