|You have some valid points.
But since I don't anything about that breeder as far as I know he could either be reputable or he could be running a puppy mill since he was coming from out-of-state and I highly doubt they do follow ups after people adopt dogs and cats from them.
But I do know of a St. Bernard breeder who shows her dogs and offered to foster but apparently the rescue group she applied for would let her do it because her dogs were unaltered and from what I know, most dog show guidelines require the dogs be kept intact with the exception of the altered dog catagory.
Anyway, it took me a while to see a lawyer because they tend to be busy with other clients but I have a follow up appointment that's not too far off.
When I spoke to her and explained my situation. She agreed that I did the right thing by not confronting the shelter manager directly. He's the type of person where if I said something to him, he'd call it harrassment or tell the police he was being threated and they'd believe him.
Another thing is that they won't let me contact the people who have Rudy either but by the same token, one owner found out who adopted his cat and they've kept in touch ever since.
After my next appointment with the lawyer, taking my story to the local news station or newspaper would be the next step.
I honestly think if I were to go that route somebody would come forward about where Rudy is or whoever has her would have to return her.
The type of shelter I'm dealing with is pretty much like this one, check out the link:
