The nutjobs that walk among us

When I really started contacting breeders and getting serious about getting a Havanese I was nearly derailed from the beginning.

There was another woman in Fort St John making inquiries about Havanese puppies and the breeders felt she was a puppy mill operation so there were warnings amongst the breeders about people from Fort St John.

Thankfully this did not cause me to get black-balled and I did get my wonderful boy.

However, they were right to be wary as it appears she's very dangerous.

I ran across this story today (oddly I hadn't heard about it until now, but it happened during the summer) and this is the SAME woman who was making inquiries about Havanese puppies at the same time as I was!!

It makes me sick.

I also found this on her:

So, I do suspect it was poor Havanese dogs that got caught up in this. So sad.

She definitely sounds off her rocker. How scary for the dogs! Is there a follow-up?

All I could find was that she pled "not guilty" in September, but no other information. Sadly, the odds are nothing more will be reported on it and we'll never know.

That makes me absolutely sick. I can't understand how someone could do something so horrible.

My insider information reveals both dogs were Havs. Both from breeders I know. SICKENING...I've been following this story since late July and I hope she doesn't just get a slap on the wrist.

In the comments of the post where she (Debra Holden) was trying to find somebody to look after her dogs, the last comment is from one of the breeders in the breeding group where i got miller (elite havanese). It puts a link to the other news article. I hope that Debra is never ever aloud to have any other animals and that she has to stop breeding.

How could a breeder murder a dog like that? Breeders are devoted to the excellence, health, and well-being of the breed--her behavior goes against everything breeders stand for. I just can not imagine anyone harming a little being who is so pure, innocent, and totally dependent on you. How can she live with herself? What other horrors is she capable of? I hope justice is served, and that she lives in an area where legislation favors animal rights. If anyone has a link to a petition or something like it, I would be eager to sign and circulate.
