Irresponsible breeder....pics online of plastic igloo crates and small, tiny fenced areas are all these dogs have. No insulation from the weather. Numerous violations. I tried calling her she refuses to answer phone for questions on her

Dot's Little Doggies is one of the breeders that sells to All Pets Club in Branford, CT. At the 2010 inspection she had 691 adult dogs and 322 puppies. She had three employees. I met with the owner of APC and asked him what Dot does when the dogs can no longer produce puppies. "She keeps them, I'm sure," he said. Really? Every year that would mean she takes in at least 250 dogs as pets. People who don't think this is cruelty are ignorant. She was cited for stacking crates which allowed feces to fall from one crate to another. We also recently found evidence that she sells the infertile dogs for research once they can no longer produce. If you do support her, please ask if you can go visit her in Kansas to see the facility. Then report back.

This will be lengthy, but it is all true:
I have a dog purchased from Dorothy's puppy mill operation. When I located the Agriculture Department from Kansas' reports, I found Dorothy had an enormous number of dogs at various times...450, 570, and 745 at the time I bought my dog from Land Of Paws pet store in Prairie Village, KS. Unfortunately, I ran the reports AFTER I purchased my shih tzu. I even called Dorothy and spoke to her personally; she behaved as if she knew the litter and actual puppy I'd purchased. She presented herself as a small breeder, when in fact, she runs one of the largest puppy mills in the Midwest.

Land of Paws represented my dog as being from a "little old lady in Topeka." Yes...a little old lady with 745 dogs, nearly half of them puppies according to the ag reports.

I revisited the veterinarian who, with his wife, owns Land of Paws. We had a lively conversation about mispresentation of merchandise. When I told the vet the dog came from a puppy mill, his comment was, "We prefer to call them 'commercial breeders'". Call it anything you want, Dorothy Brecheisen owns Dot's Little Doggies and it is a bona fide puppy mill.

The vet did refund nearly all of my purchase price of my dog. He was not happy, and he asked for the dog back. I refused. I took the vet's money and sent it to an organization that fights puppy mills.

My dog ended up being bow-legged, has bad teeth, and is totally blind since birth in his right eye. He is a victim of bad breeding from Dorothy's puppy mill. This was confirmed by my own vet and by a dog ophthamologist (I spent $500 to make sure my dog's blindess was not due to sickness and would not spread to his other eye.) Nevertheless, he is a good and well-loved dog.

Dorothy and breeders like her need to be shut down. It will take actions by states to stop puppy mills. Until then, Dorothy and her ilk will continue to mass breed puppies purely for profits, with no care about the health and welfare of their animals.

This review isn't about 'stars'; but I wanted people to know the kind of puppy mill Dorothy is running, what kind of store Law of Paws is and their complete lack of corporate conscience and moral compass, and the message to resuce a dog from a shelter, or buy from a legitimate family-run breeder. Visit the breeder. DO NOT PATRONIZE LAND OF PAWS, or other pet stores, because they sell PUPPY MILL dogs. So does Dorothy.

Are you people serious? Don't get me wrong, if you have a "healthy" dog from this mill, I am thrilled because I never want to see ANY dog sick. However, every time someone buys a pet store puppy they are supporting puppy mills. This is a puppy mill for sure. Housing over 500 dogs? You may think you "saved" a puppy from this terrible place. The fact is - puppies are the lucky ones but you can't imagine what their moms and dads are going through. To be bred numerous times throughout their life and live in a cage that is just 6 inches bigger than they are. You should all be ashamed of yourself for giving a big 5 star review. If Dot's was a GOOD breeder, she would not sell her puppies to complete strangers. If you love Dogs you will step up against puppy mills. Please educate yourselves. Google "puppy mills", watch videos, read books...

She and all puppy mills need to be SHUT DOWN. I am now the foster of one of their dogs in Rhode Island. Rumford Pet Store needs to be SHUT DOWN too. All their dogs come from this BUSINESS...that alone proves puppy mill. This dog was in a cage for 6 months before someone stupidly bought her. By now she had no training at all, was a big Labradoodle, living in her feces was normal, and jumping at everyone, just wanting to be loved. The paper work from them also said she was a Labradoodle from parents who were both Labradoodles...well, what a lie!!! This dog is definitely NOT what is called a F2 !!! But Rumford and the breeder wanted more MONEY, so that's what they said. LIES LIES and more LIES. This dog, rescued by me from CRAIGSLIST, and if given away there, would probably have ended up in the pound and KILLED, now has a long road to recovery....and then her final forever home. Rhode Islanders....PLEASE...DO NOT SUPPORT RUMFOR PETS in any way....HELP SAVE OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS....Each breed has reputable places to get a pet that you can visit nearby and check on the breeder. OR go to the breed rescue on Google and rescue the best pet, "full or mixed" breeds are all available....I promise...Have a HEART.

I just bought a Cairn/Poodle mix from a pet store in W. Hartford. I have to admit it was a quick purchase due to the fact I had just put my 18 yr. old poodle to sleep 3 days before. I was so scared of living without a dog for company I would lose it. I went in a saw this puppy and he was so cute. I bought him really quick. I didn't even compare to the other dogs, I didn't want to be too picky. I pray he stays healthy after reading the other posts. I also looked up Dot's Little Doggies by the address and on a map. I was horrified when I saw the satellite picture and immediately realized the property was full of kennels. Than I read there were 600 dogs there at one time and over 200 were puppies. How can these dogs be cared for properly??? There doesn't seem to be a reasonable explanation that could explain the commitment that is used to care for that amount of dogs/puppies. Come on.,.. This is a puppy mill for sure. I feel so sad that my puppies parents are living in a puppy mill and used for breeding. When a breeder has that many dogs for sale and such a large variety of breeds, there is no way they can have knowledge of "all" the backgrounds of all these dogs. So, so sad. I'm moritifed I supported this place. I will love this dog all his life and he does seem very smart. I wish I knew what he will look like as a grown adult, especially now that I know his background. By the way, this pet store, West Hartford Puppy Center, has twice sold dogs to family members. One dog was about 12 pounds bigger than sold as. The other was a Maltese with bad knees. This is my second dog. My first was bought from a women who bred her dog for money to. I could tell. But she had only 2 puppies for sale. More reasonable. I also saw the mother dog and she was ok. I'm going to try to get info from the ASPCA and distribute it so other people will now about puppy mills. I love dogs and I feel so naive for not even thinking about the use of puppy mills in pet stores. No one really mentioned it to me before. Anyway. Love your pets, spoil them, and I agree with another post that says treat the dogs like they are victims to. Its not their fault they were born in those conditions.

I can't speak about the business overall, but I can say I bought a bichon poodle mix (Bichapoo) from All Pets Club in Wallingford, CT that came from Dorothy, and he is as close to perfection as I can imagine.

Cooper is now 10 months old, absolutely adorable, has a great disposition, and is very smart. We've had no health problems (knock on wood) with him, and literally 8 out of 10 people stop us to comment on how cute he is. The most common comment is, "He looks like a little teddy bear." And he does. My mother has never been a dog person and she frequently says she would steal him with a glad heart. Needless to say, we keep a close eye on him when she visits:)

Again, I can't speak to the entire business...maybe we just got lucky, but Cooper is the greatest dog I have ever come across!!

I purchased my black female Standard Poodle from Land of Paws in OP, Kansas, and I learned later the Breeder is Dot's Little Doggies. While she is not AKC but ACA, she has show quailty standards, very well tempered (has not met another person on dog she does not like), has an outstanding black coat, and is very healthy. We continure to get comments of "what a beautiful" dog she is. I would heistate to recommend buying a pup if it came from Dot's Little Doggies.

I bought my mini-aussiedoodle from Rumfords Pets in Warwick, RI, and have been very happy with him. As reccomended by the Rumfords, I took him to the vet the following day. He did have worms, but the vet said that was common in the best of circumstances, otherwise he was very healthly.

I didn't want to buy from a puppy mill. I researched the breeder, and (at the time), couldn't find much about her. The only thing I did find was an article about supervision of puppy mills, where she spoke in favor of more inspections and requirements. I thought that was a good sign.

One of the problems is that "breeders won't sell to pet stores", and they usually only have purebreds. My family (and extended family), have adopted homeless pets, bought from preferred breeders, and from pet stores. Thinking back over the pets life, I can't see that there was a big difference between the dogs health. My sweetheart "Cassie" was adopted from the Humane Society and came down with distemper shortly thereafter. After 4 different vet visits, they all felt that she got it from the shot given at the shelter. I guess this happens VERY rarely...but it happened.

My mother bought from a breeder, and her cocker had been inbred, and it's knees were inverted (or something like that). What are you going to do after several years of loving it? Return it for a refund? I don't think so...

Just as with humans, you are going to have problems that come up in regular life...children get cancer, and diseases...it doesn't mean they weren't cared for and loved.

With that said, I am adamantly opposed to some of the horrid conditions that exist in some "puppy mills", but I don't think all large breeders should be put in the same category.

One other thing...there really aren't many breeders out there, and they seem to think they're superior. Many won't let you even come and pick the puppy out of a litter...possible contamination. We are expected to pre-pay for an upcoming letter, and take what we're given. That's crazy.

I bought a dog from Rumford Pet Center in Rhode Island I love him very much but I was told he is 100% cocker spaniel. He looks nothing like any other cocker I have seen. EVERY person I have talked to about Rumford pet center has mentioned this Dorothy lady from Kansas. I looked into his paperwork and sure enough that is where he is from. Rhode Island is a small state and word of mouth spreads fast. I have heard some very sad stories about the dogs from Dorothy. I don't understand how we in the United States and allow someone to get away with this PUPPY MILL! I feel terrible now knowing I put money into this womens pocket. How does she not feel bad about what she is doing? I will go directly to a breeder next time!

I have known Dorothy for many years, I visited the kennel to many times, I got a Jack Russell from Dorothy and she was wonderful. The facility is clean, and cleaned daily, and they keep records on everything, Dorothy even has survilence hooked up to her house when a female is due to have babies so that she can monitor in case there are any problems. This is a family business and they consider the dogs their pets. If you have had problems with a particular breed I would sure report it back to her, as their may be a genetic problem that they are not aware of, which is the case in many animals not only dogs. It may just need to be brought to her attention. My Jack Russell is a wonderful and hyper dog, Ive had her for 7 years, I wouldnt trade her for nothing. And Dorothy is a very sweet person, and cares a great deal about her family, friends and her Doggies.

If I could, I wouldn't even give Dot a star. Do not buy dogs from her. We purchased an adorable chocolate, tan and white cocker from One Stop Pet Shop in Wallingford, CT (Now All Pets Club) from Dot's Little Doggies. Within 2 months our dog began chewing herself raw - after numerous (and costly) tests, we learned that she had several food allergies and put her on an expensive and restricted diet. Soon after, when she was spayed, we were told that she had an abnormally small womb, and would have likely died if she'd tried to have puppies. Then at the age of 4, one of the discs in her neck ruptured - $4,500 surgery. Then at the age of six, she went into HEART FAILURE!! Soon after, she developed horrible arthritis, which hunched and crippled her back and hind legs, causing her to put all her weight on her front legs, which in time cause her front paws to collapse under the weight. At this point, she is still alive at 9 years old, which is a miracle of medicine (13 pills a day), but she hobbles around like a 16 year old cocker while my other cocker (the same age) still runs around like a puppy. My dog has been in pain most of her life and it is due to the careless and negligent breeding practices of Dot's Little Doggies. In my opinion, she should be shut down before she breeds more dogs doomed to a life of pain.

Bought my dog from All Pets Club in CT . My dog was supposed to be an Australian Shepherd but he IS NOT!!! He is a border collie mix. His papers say he came from Dots Little Doggies and he is registered with the ACA which my vet informed me that the ACA is a company that issues "Genuine Registrations" for puppy mills. All you need to get a dog registered with the ACA is money. I tried calling both the ACA and Dots Little Doggies with no answers.
My dog had kennel cough for the first three months I had him. As much as I love my dog, I will never buy from a pet store ever again. I am thinking of paying Dots Little Doggies a visit in person. Has anyone ever seen the place??

I purchased my chihuahua from Land of Paws in OP, Kansas and the Breeder is Dot's Little Doggies. I would buy another one from Doty.. my chihuahua has the greatest temperment, loving and has been super Healthy. I can tell she was well taken care of at Doty's. She is very playful and not afraid of people at all. Never has she snapped or growled at my children or any other person. She is the best dog ever and I would buy another chihuahua from Doty in a heart beat. My Chi has been nothing but a pleasure and is healthy. My vet even said that she must of came from a great breeder as she is in perfect health and is so well mannered. I would recommend friends and family to buy a pup from Dot's Little Doggies any day.

I would buy another one from Doty.. my chihuahua has the greatest temperment, loving and has been super Healthy. I can tell she was well taken care of at Doty's. She is very playful and not afraid of people at all. Never has she snapped or growled at my children or any other person. She is the best dog ever and I would buy another chihuahua from Doty in a heart beat. My Chi has been nothing but a pleasure and is healthy. My vet even said that she must of came from a great breeder as she is in perfect health and is so well mannered. I would recommend friends and family to buy a pup from Dot's Little Doggies any day.

PET STORE PURCHASER:

To those who purchased a dog at a Pet Store. Do you know for a fact that the animal did not receive the medical condition from the pet store? All the dogs at Dot's Little Doggies are in wonderful condition. They are played with and loved. I would check out how long your dog was at the pet store before you purchased it. Ask the store if it has had a kennel cough vaccination.

I bought my chihuahua from Land of Paws in Kansas City in 2008. His papers show that he was from Dot's Little Doggies. He lived 2 years and died yesterday from a genetic disorder that prevented him from absorbing nutrients through his intestines. He literally starved to death right before my eyes. So yes, Dot's Little Doggies produces puppies who are sweet, loving and quickly become a part of your family BUT be prepared to spend THOUSANDS of dollars on vet bills and become emotionally battered while you watch your best friend and family member die from genetic defects caused by exploitive breeding. Dot's Little Doggies does not breed with the intention to produce healthy dogs that will live to their expected age. They breed for PROFIT and ship puppies out to pet stores all over the US. Most likely my poor puppy was a product of inbreeding, poor sanitation, overcrowding, and very well could have been sold at auction to be kept in a tiny cage and used for breeding for all of his short life. To the person who says that Dot's Doggies are played with and taken care of... YOU ARE NAIVE. There is NO CHANCE that a commercial breeder with 600 dogs could give each animal the proper care. These animals are kept in tiny cages soiled with their own excrement for their entire lives and used as objects for PROFIT. Many of them will never run, play or even touch the GROUND. Instead their paws are splayed from living their entire lives in a cage standing on a wire grate. So if you are thinking about buying a dog from Dot's Little Doggies or ANY pet store... THINK AGAIN. The initial price of your puppy is only a mere FRACTION of the cost of what you will pay for that dog... not to mention the trauma of seeing a member of your family die a miserable death when they reach adulthood.

I don't know anything about the breeding conditions that this woman provides, all I know is I got one of the dogs she breed and he was the sweetest, most perfect animal I have ever known. He was beautiful, full of life and very very sweet. If the conditions he was breed under are as terrible as previous posters have described, then I am glad that I saved his little soul from such disgrace. The dogs she breeds should not be boycotted, for they have nothing to do with the man made world and they are still more than worth saving.

Love my little doggie, I respect the fact that your dog is very sweet and perfect. You are talking in the past tense. Has your dog died? My dog was a complete joy to me and my two children. We considered him as a member of our family and that it why we spent thousands and thousands of dollars to try to save his life. He was only two years old when he died.

I was not aware that he had a death sentence when we bought him. I was not aware that Dot's Little Doggies was a commercial kennel. I was not aware that the pet store All Pet's had lied to us.

I wish you luck ....just because you love a dog and it becomes a part of your family now, can't take back where he came from and the baggage that comes with it.

If you buy a dog from a pet store you are supporting all of these types of puppy mills . They will continue to use these poor dogs and puppies as a commodity. Pet stores will continue to practice this unethical ways of selling and the families and puppies will continue to get hurt. Do your research
before you buy a puppy. Would you pay $1500.00 for a puppy if the pet store told you It came from a puppy mill? Would you pay $1500.00 for a puppy if the pet store told you it came from a private breeder? WE ARE ALL BEING PLAYED !!!!!

I know this operation well. The number of breeder dogs does not mean that these dogs are a number. These dogs are well cared for and most are known on sight. In fact most of these dogs know their own names because they are called by name. I'm sure she did remember your pup, as they are handled and played with the entire time they are there. I would recommend one of these pups to anyone. These are well cared for dogs, by the owners and staff.

I purchased my dog from Land of Paws in May, 2005, and was given paperwork to inform me that Dot's Little Doggies was the breeder. I was told the breeder was "a little ole' lady near Topeka" who "home-bred her dogs." I even phoned and spoke to Dorothy Brecheisen, who acted as though she remembered my pup specifically. After I pulled some inspection reports, I discovered that Dot's Little Doggies was a "commercial breeder" with more than 600 dogs in Jan. 2004!

I never bought my dog from this place, but the people I bought my mini doxie from did, I got all her med records and pedgree papers with her when her family gave up on her. Their loss was my gain, she is the most precious, sweet, adorable,
