    I've just seen the ugly side of Frenchie Owners/Breeders

    Wow, just wow. Some people are very unprofessional! Guess it's better it came out now before I wasted my time and energy visiting this breeder!!!

    I came across a couple of older puppies on puppyfind.com and contacted the breeder about them. We have had several emails back and forth and I even filled out her application. This has been going on for about 3 days guess now. It sounded like she was willing to sell the 2 puppies I was interested in to me. Well, after all this back and forth, I get an email this evening saying that she has decided not to sell them to me and that she is going to pass. Her reason is because of my work schedule. I work a regular 40 hour week, no more, and would be home at lunch time.

    Well, to say the least I was crushed about this, but gracious to her because she had been so nice. So I replied to her and told her I understood and thanked her for her time.

    Well, I go on facebook tonight and I see where she has posted about my situation, without even getting the facts straight, or without knowing me, and said that I would be leaving the puppies home for 10 hours a day! Really? REALLY??? I never said that anywhere in any of my emails or application, and I think I was even very straight forward with her about my hours (8-5). And of course, all her so called "friends" and followers were on her side and one disgusting woman even said I obviously don't care about the dog if I was willing to leave it home all that time..... REALLY!!??? This woman doesn't even know me!!! How dare she draw those conclusions about me. I'm so boiling made I could spit nails right now!!!!!

    Needless to say I unfriended her.

    I'm am just beside myself. I could cry.

    @2bullymama - unfortunately, I already know how people really can suck...... my Boxers were my babies. I want a Frenchie baby, I just don't get it. I'm not a horrible person, but man, this is just ripping at my heart! I never in my wildest dreams thought it was going to be this difficult to get a baby! I guess I know now why she still has so many "older" puppies... She turned me down because she didn't want to see them "locked" up in a laundry room (granted my laundry room is bigger than most bathrooms) all day. Really? Excuse me for having to work for a living! Geesh!

    The breeder must have trouble letting her babies go. I know I could never breed because I'd want to keep every puppy!

    Keep trying, Michelle.

    No kidding, right?! I wish I could stay home with them all day, but it's not in the cards right now....maybe down the road in a couple of years, but not now. I like. Y lifestyle, therefore I must earn the money to support that lifestyle.

    Wow, terrible!
    I personally see nothing wrong with working full time and having pets. We manage very well and when she is in her kennel for 4 hours, out for 20 minutes, and back in for 4 hours our puppy does just fine, and she is only 5 months old. Don't get me wrong she is riled up and ready to go after a long day like that so we have to exercise her vigorously and play with her when we get home, but that is what we enjoy. She goes into her kennel without a fuss every time we leave (probably because we do feedings in the kennels)... Don't feel guilty about leaving them... Alone time is good for dogs so they don't become overly reliant on us every minute of the day.. it will help to leave her frequently for periods of time to prevent separation anxiety...

    Yes! I agree with you, but this breeder told me that because I was gone for 10 hours a day (which is complete crap by the way, but that was her deduction), that it would cause issues with the puppies (yes there were 2!) and they would develop separation anxiety??!!! Really!?!?!?!? Like I've never owned a dog before and had no clue what to do with one!! Yeah right! I'm still boiling from her email!!
