The stupid neighbors bitch had 6 puppies a couple days ago. I did not help and have been "unavailable" each time my husband was asked to get me. He tells my husband that there are 3 girls and 3 boys, imagine that. He also said they are all going to family...I can just imgaine
I am keeping an eye on the papers/ads and if he places an ad, I will promptly place an ad right next to his about carefully choosing a responsible breeder. I will be clever with the ad, but also careful not to slander. I have not said a word to them in the past 2 months...I am just sick. As bad as it is, I was really hoping something would go really wrong and hope that it would teach them a lesson. Sometimes I wonder why I bother.

I would stop all contact with these people. They are trash. Like someone else said, they are working the system and probably have been for years without consequence. What you are telling them is in one ear and out the other.

I'd start my new home search right away. Focus your energy and time on something positive instead losers who work the system. Too bad you don't have any lawyer friends to ask advice

Sorry if I'm not much help, but this is what I'd do in your situation.

The reason you bother is because you care about animals and about doing what's right. When it comes to BYB's, I don't think a "little white lie" hurts. I tell people that Tucker's BYB runs a puppy mill. I tell people that Tucker's mom died because of her irresponsible care. My parent's neighbor have 5 or 6 week old Labs. The bitch is barely over a year, and the male is aggressive. When people go to look at them, I tell them flat out the risks they are taking, the male's personality, and caution them about buying them so young. I'm not physically preventing anyone from buying a dog...just sharing my information, experience, and what I've witnessed which most people appreciate.

Well, this is not good news for the puppies, but perhaps a lesson to the neighbor.
The neighbor had to take the mom and all 6 pups to Purdue E-Vet last Sunday as the Mom became dehydrated and was very close to exhaustion. Overnight stay and Iv-fluids, and they are home again. I guess it was 700.00 from what my husband tells me. I have to admit, I do feel a bit guilty as I knew these pups would need to be supplemented and I did not tell them. The Mom is very small and very young, plus they feed shit food(ol roy) and probably didn't even increase it to account for nursing.
Now the story gets even better as the pups will be "given"(I am thinking more like raffled) to help disabled children that the parents are members of the DAV, a bar(liquor) that "serves" disabled veterans.
I guess I am getting older and more mature, as I barely blinked when my husband filled me in on this. Before I would get very upset, say a few choice words and so on...Very sad, but tired of it as well.

In a kinda similar situation, except the person I know is a professional puppy broker and it makes me sick. There's no convincing some people, unfortunately the ONLY way to get through those thick skulls of theirs is a disaster. Even then, sometimes it doesn't get through. Don't feel bad, there's only so much you can do till you are ''enabling'' their actions.

Ah, you are a stronger person than I. I am afraid I would have wussed out and offered help after the e-vet episode.

Well at least you know your neighbors aren't total a holes, they vetted a sick dog and her pups when it would have been very easy to just let them die or dump them.
I wouldn't worry about them or the pups anymore apparently these people do care to a point and when help isn't free they are willing to pay.
I have to assume a ethical vet would have pushed for a spay.
