TIBETAN MASTIFF PUPPIES COLORADO - ABOUT WEST MAGIC TIBETAN MASTIFFS
HOW WE LEARNED ABOUT HIGH VOLUME AKC SHOW BREEDERS AND WHY WE FEEL YOU ARE NOT GETTING A BETTER PUPPY FROM THEM OR SELF NAMED "ELITISTS".
THIS SITE IS AN ON GOING AND IT CHANGES AS I LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BREED AND AKC. THANK YOU FOR VISITING. IT'S NOT ABOUT PUPPY SALES. YOU SHOULD BUY WHAT YOU LIKE, JUST KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING INTO. The following are my opinions I have formed based on my experiences.
I base my opinons on my direct experiences. This site is an ongoing site which evolves as I learn more. This site is based on my experiences over the past seven years. I don't agree with everybody but what is boils down to me is honesty and how a breeder treats somebody. My reasons for not recommending people are based on what they have done to me. I don't care about them, their dogs, etc. It's all about ripping people off, lying about others to get ahead and taking advantage of unsuspecting people. So I hope this will help you to avoid what I have experienced. Just be wary of those willing to slander others because their "dog businesses" are being threatened.
WARNING! "COULD" BUYING AN AKC DOG PUT YOU AT RISK FOR THREATS AND SLANDER? I BELIEVE SO. WITH SO MUCH MONEY RIDING ON THE DOGS; SICK AKC BREEDERS HAVE SOCIAL MEDIA "HATE SITES" TO KEEP THEIR UNSATIFIED CUSTOMERS SILENT WITH LIES AND SLANDER. I would be happy to share links to these self proclaimed "ELITIIST'S" Facebook "HATE" sites with you so you can see for yourself. Based on what I have seen it is done all in the name of selling dogs, website products, magazine articles, cards, etc. EMAIL ME FOR LINKS. Why? I believe it is all about the money; not the dogs. They will threaten to sue anybody who shares their personal experiences with them. I do respect the breeders who are not partaking in this unethical behavior and I and you should take note of the names of those breeders who are participating on these "HATE" sites. Just remember it could be you, their customer next. Think about it. This site is about my experience with AKC breeders and people who make a living off dogs. It is basically a generalization of the characteristics it has taken me seven years to realize. If you ask questions, they will attack you. If you question them, they will attack you. They are a very nasty group of people I.M.O. I believe the root of all these nasty people is the AKC; based on what I have witnessed. Again, just my opinion. I see how they attack people and when it comes right down to it; it's about show competition and dog sales. That is why I won't register my dogs with AKC. After years of seeing all the ins and outs, the ways they slander and lie about people, I refuse to give AKC another dime. It's not about one breeder or another; it's about the whole system that allows them to act like they do.
I have found it funny to see how the old saying "what goes around comes around" works. Many of these people starting these "HATE SITES" told me to stay away from one breeder because they were well let's just say a little rough with their wording and they had a reputation for suing everybody. For all the breeders who have been in the breed a long time, you know what I am talking about so you must find these breeders now setting up their "HATE SITES" and threatening to sue their disatified customers amusing! From what I see there are three main people in this circle. I was told from the beginning one was a "puppy mill" by several people. It appears all three do not have jobs. One is probably on public assistance as I was told by them that nothing is in their name. One has made enemies around the globe :). All I can say, it must be stressful trying to make a living off dogs or dog related products. Quite a group!. All very good at deception. Good luck to those who fall for the bait. PLEASE LOOK AT THE NAMES OF THE MEMBER ON THESE "HATE SITES" and be sure to go to anybody that is not on those list. Remember, it could be you next. I guess they are finding it hard to take what they have been dishing out for years. I saw it a while ago and I haven't been in the breed nearly as long as many. I don't know the entire history because I haven't been in the breed that long, but what from what I have seen; none of it makes sense. First they don't like the breeder because they "supposedly" don't have a contract; now they don't like the breeder because they do have a contract but they don't like it. One has to ask, why do these "Elite" hate mongers want this breeder's dogs if they hate them so much? Why get their dogs in unscruptulous ways and use them in your breeding program? Why not buy your own dogs from overseas or something? The only thing I can figure is they are all NUTS.
If you want a great Tibetan Mastiff; go to a small hobby breeder who does not care about showing. This is not to say that all show people are bad; some small breeders like to show and I say good for them; but these horrible busy body AKC "ELITE" breeders seem so obsessed with what everybody else is doing that I believe you are only asking for trouble by even asking their advice. Remember; follow the money. The "Elitists" I am talking about have no jobs so remember "FOLLOW THE MONEY". It's all about recognition for them and money. This is never a good reason to breed dogs. They have all the time in the world to "bash" others and pick pepper off poop so just imagine what they might do to you if they "turn on you". No, I highly recommend staying away from "Elitist" who feel they are better than you and set up social media "HATE SITES" to attack others instead of worrying about their own dogs. These are very scary individuals. I GOT MY FIRST TM FROM A VERY NICE LOW KEY SMALL BREEDER AND I WISH ALL MY EXPERIENCES WERE LIKE THAT. Very down to earth. Not the "ELITE" know it all type at all. Just a guy that loved his dogs and the breed. These "ELITE" breeders are ruining the breed by attacking and making enemies of everybody around the world that love the breed. THEY REALLY NEED TO GET REAL JOBS AND STOP RUINING THE TIBETAN MASTIFF BREED BECAUSE THEY HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS AND DEPEND ON THE BREED TO MAKE THEIR LIVING AND FEEL IMPORTANT!
I AM OF THE OPINION THAT THESE SELF PROCLAIMED and SO CALLED "ELITE" BREEDERS HAVE CREATED THEIR "DILEMNA" WITHIN THE TIBETAN MASTIFF BREED BY STICKING THEIR NOSES INTO EVERYBODY's BUSINESS AND SLANDERING PEOPLE INTO BREEDING MORE AND MORE OUT OF SPITE. JUST MY TAKE ON THE WHOLE "SITUATION"
*** THESE SELF PROCLAIMED "ELITISTS" BASH EVERYBODY ABOUT WHAT THEY CLAIM AS "THEIR" BREED. THEY GO ON ABOUT MIXING THEM WITH OTHER BREEDS AND ON AND ON AND ON. ITGETS SO OLD. THIS WOULD BE CALLED "RACISM" IN HUMAN TERMS. CAN YOU IMAGINE THEM PROHIBITED PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RACES FROM PROCREATING? THIS IS WHAT THEY SPEND THEIR DAYS WORRYING ABOUT. ALL I HAVE TO SAY TO THEM IS "GET A LIFE AND A JOB". DO SOMETHING ELSE BESIDES MONITORING EVERY BODY ELSE.THIS IS A GREAT ARTICLE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED. IF YOU ASK QUESTIONS YOU ARE VERY LIKELY TO BE ATTACED FOR COMPLAINING ABOUT THESE HIGH VOLUME BREEDRES. WHY? JUST LIKE A BREEDER I KNOW WHO I BELIEVE WAS TARGETED AND SUSPENDED BY AKC BECAUSE THEY WERE BOYCOTTING AKC. IT IS MY OPINION THAT AKC BACKED THESE HIGH VOLUME AKC BREEDERS WHEN THEY COMPLAINED BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT GET AND REGISTER THE BOYCOTTING BREEDER'S DOGS. At least that is what it appears to be.
QUOTE FROM ARTICLE SITED ABOVE: "Why not stand up for the dogs being held hostage in the most inhumane conditions possible?
It’s all about the money. The AKC earns big bucks from commercial breeders...puppy mills.
An estimated 40 percent of the AKC’s annual $61 million revenue comes from dog registrations. Of that amount, the largest percentage of the funds come from mass breeding operations…many of which are puppy mills. Between 2011 and 2013, AKC revenue dropped 13 percent. As revenue drops, the AKC is holding on to the area where they get the most dough – commercial breeders." UNQUOTE
THERE ARE A FEW GOOD AKC BREEDERS BUT NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO GIVE AKC MY MONEY. I would stick with the "low key" people and ignore the crazy peoplle who feel they are better than everybody else. There is more to life than fighting everybody around the globe about Tibetan Mastiffs. Who cares? Buy what you like and just be happy.
The following is my opinion based on my personal experiences.
I am not in it for the money. Based on all my experiences with many of these high volume so called "elite" breeders, I have come to the conclusion that it is all about the money and not the dogs. The dogs are just a way for them to get attention and make money. These opinions were formed because of their abusive actions and treatment of people they consider a threat. So buy what you like. Look at their "HATE SITE" friend lists and make notes. There are some ethical AKC breeders and those are the ones you will not find on these horrible breeders friends lists. Remember, you could be their next target for merely telling about your experiencing. Money truly is the root of all evil.
One minute they are enemies and the next they are best friends; as long as they have a target in their sight. Most of the time the target is someone selling better dogs at a lower price because they don't have the "overhead" of showing. The fact that people remain friends with people knowing about what happened to some dogs makes them no better in my opinion. Silence is just as bad; and in the world of TMs, the silence seems to be deafening. Based on what I have seen I am of the opinon that people who do not show care about the breed and the dogs far more than high volume AKC show breeders and those that consider themselves "elitists".
