Shocking Photos

August 30, 2009

Debra Tranter gave us these shocking photos today. Her team have been inspecting Rutland Manor over the last few months and have collected hundreds of photos and hours of video footage (soon to be released we are told). More photos can be viewed on Debra’s website.

Debra tells us her team were moved to tears at the sight of the dogs living conditions and hearing their attempts to bark. Not one dog had any warm bedding and on some nights it was a freezing 2 degree’s. Debra explained that there are many violations to the code of practice and she is urging us all to write to Baw Baw Shire Council asking them to revoke the permit immediately. Please email the authorities and be a voice for these dogs.

Email Phil Stone, Director of Planning and Information and David Powell CEO of Baw Baw Shire Council.

    Well Beverley – how do you explain these?????

    So much for “Loving” your dogs. Now we can see what the living conditions are for your dogs and the condition of their coats.

    Didn’t you say something about you would rather die than see one hair on their head hurt ?????
    Any wonder they barked (when they were able) they are neglected, lonely, matted, cold and bored. ALL in the name of money

    I cant get get my head around these conditions. It is a nighmare. Our dogs live in spotless kennels and are whelped at home, Beverley has made us feel like inferior breeders for years.
    Thank you Debra foir showing us the truth. Rutland Manor is a Puppy Mill, lying, deceitful and with no concern for the dogs or how they are bred

    “If you want a dog to live outside you better not consider an Australian Labradoodle.” Looks like you are the worst of hypocrites, your dogs not only live outside, they live in kennels!!!! What would you have said to me if I told you I wanted to buy a puppy and put it outside in a concrete kennel without heat and then I want to debark that puppy too!!!

    I am sickened to the pit of my stomach at the conditions in which these dogs live. Not only are they abused with the RM breeding practices, even when in seclusion, when it is time to rest and dream, these beautiful dogs live in this filthy cold squalor.

      We bought two dogs from these people 5 years ago. I am sick in the stomach about this!

    What a hoax she is !!! – Beverley Manners puts greater effort into the presentation of the RUTLAND MANOR WEBSITE, including her make-up/hairstyle for the photos than she does caring for these sad neglected dogs.

    Beverley truly intends to “beguile us with flowery words and artful speech” .

    Those who still remain supportive of Beverley Manner’s puppy farming practice, condone the cruel treatment of labradoodles – the very breed many ardent followers supposedly advocate for.

    Heike – That is a good point.

    So Beverley – WHAT would you say if someone wanted to keep their RM Puppy in the same conditions you keep your dogs???????

    Yep this is exactly what I saw and only 6 months ago, nothing has changed. It is a disgrace and Beverley, the manipulator of the century, needs to be stopped. These poor dogs. 😦

    Beverly you are a liar and a fraud – your dogs ARE kept in appalling conditions in filth and cold. You don’t have a blemish-free reputation, you have a record of lies, intimidation, animal cruelty and neglect, underage breeding, back to back breeding, debarking, false pedigrees and the list goes on and on and on. When the rest of the photos and footage are published I wonder how will you talk you way out of more of the truthful and factual exposure then ? I congratulate Debra and her team and I will continue to speak out against you, your staff, all those who protect you and all those who know the truth but have not yet come forward. All are GUILTY of either cruelty or cover-up.

    For those who have not yet viewed the photos and the updated information about the RM housing of dogs on the Debra Tranter website, I encourage you all to view, absorb and take action. The evidence is clear, can’t be disputed. That Beverly Manners has 12 week old puppies in the current winter outside conditions is just too much to take in. This vile breeder MUST be stopped from inflicting any more suffering on these beautiful dogs.

    If Debra reads this, I just want to say well done!! The sad truth is, the RSPCA will not shut her down. RSPCA says as long as they have shelter and food/water. How the heck can anyone call these kennels a five* hotel. Cold concrete walls, concrete floors, filth and grime everywhere!! This IS a prison for dogs. No one, I mean no one that loves dogs would keep them like this.

    Sorry Bev, don’t belive a word you say, there is NO law that says you have to keep your dogs LOCKED up in a brick aka concrete enclosure at night, you can keep them in your HOUSE!! Of of course if you happen to have too many that is and can’t keep them in a home. What about the guardian homes you speak of. You are mean plain and simple to keep those dogs locked up in a kennel instead of with people to love and care for them. You are a puppy farmer not a loving breeder.
