I strongly suggest that those of you involved with your parent breed
clubs go to the Drs Foster and Smith site and look up your breed and the
breeders listed there. They have a little disclaimer regarding
responsible breeders being listed and will remove breeders at their
What we all need to do is email a guideline for each of our breeds along
with health, temperament and performance tests that responsible and
ethical breeders utilize - so that Drs Foster and Smith can use that
info as a screening tool. I just now called and spoke to a C.S. manager
after seeing several obvious puppy-millers and promoters of the albino
doberman listed in the Dobermans section. In fact, it was pretty
sickening to see many of the sources for most of the dobes we get in
rescue in No. Calif.
I was told to contact CINDY QUANT through the web site and make sure
that correspondence states "ATTN: CINDY QUANT". She is the head of the
web services for Drs Foster and Smith.
