Charlie and Sunnie

September 28, 2009

The Australian Labradoodle’s unique connectedness to humans  makes them yearn to be near you.  The most cruel thing that could happen to the Australian Labradoodle would be to deprive it of human companionship.  If you want a dog to live outside and are not prepared to put in the time and effort to make it a true family member then you should not consider an Australian Labradoodle. Beverley Manners 2009

Rutlands Charlemagne was due to arrive in the UK this month (order was canceled by the UK Breeder )but instead he is back at work at Rutland Manor this time with Rutlands Lil Sunset Jewel. Sunnie was born on 17th April 2007, she was mated to Rutlands WH Mon Ami when she was only 10 months old and whelped her first litter on 8th May 2008. Not only illegal but abhorrent.

Sunnie only whelped her latest litter, 6 puppies on 21st May 2009. No time to rest, back at work 3 months later. No “honeymooning” under the blossom tree either, locked together in their concrete cell or “bedroom”.

When will the madness end!

    I cannot understand this, Sunnie will be due in season and is locked in with the stud dog, so there will be no way she can get away from him before she is physically ready to mate, this is a recipe for fighting, biting and extreme stress for both dogs. This shows utter ignorance of how to look after breeding dogs and contempt for the natural process.

    They look so pathetic sat on the only bed available in their cell.

    Confining an in-season bitch with a dog (no matter how experienced or mature), is the one thing a responsible breeder NEVER does in case of injury, a fight and the welfare of both dogs. But then again Beverly Manners has proven to the world that she is not a responsible breeder, has no regard for her dogs at all, and that she is simply a cruel and greedy commercial puppy farmer.

    At least there are some people out there willing to see the facts before them and not believe the glossy website, I truly applaud them for having the bravery and love of the dogs to make them do the right thing. The sad thing is too many have already bought her dogs and breeding dogs and have their own self interests to protect. If someone can justify breeding a pound puppy, back to back breeding, cold concrete kennels, debarking dogs, lying about pedigrees, then I guess there is no hope for them. As I read, someone said, oh yes Bev has made some mistakes are you kidding me?? Mistakes, how can you mistake a cold kennel for a guardian home?? How do you mistake a pound puppy with no known history for a “pure” Australian Labradoodle. How do mistake unkempt and matted dogs for groomed well kept dogs, best of all how do you mistake a Poodle mix for a LABradoodle. This in NOT about breed snobery, it’s about a lie that has been perpetuated for many years now. How do you mistake breeding for the betterment of the breed and sell over 400 puppies in one year and say you are not fulling a puppy market! Not to mention the breeding dogs she has sold across the world. Why on earth would someone do that if not for the money??

    If only we could save these poor vulnerable dogs and let them experience love and respect.

    Humans, such as Beverley Manners, who treat animals as inanimate objects are the lowest form of life on the planet.

    How can she get so many litters out of her bitches. I thought they only came on heat twice a year?

    Removing pups from bitches early can bring them back into season quicker, but of course they suffer great misery when this is done and a much increased risk of mastitis. It isn’t good for the puppies either to be taken from their mother too early. Some breeders will also give hormone injections to bring on seasons but these are linked to health problems.
    One method is discussed by the GSD people
    3 litters in a year is a terrifying burden for a poor bitch with no comfort or care.

    By the way,looking at the Rutland Manor About Beverley page, her GSD breeding for 30 odd years under the kennel name of Grafenburg is a mystery to the GSD breeders as the famous von Grafenburg Kennels in Germany have no association with her.
    Silhouette Rough Collies are in America. Only puppy farms market them as “Scotch Collies” as they are described by Beverley, and Pixie Paws is unknown as a kennel name.

    Who is Beverly Manners /Wetzel?

    I wonder what is TRUE? Nothing checks out!

    I am in shock!! I only have discovered this website today, and it could confirm the feelings I have had from the beginning about rm.
    we have a (wonderful, terrific) puppy from this litter, so if i do understand what you are saying, is that all the litter died, except our Chiara……
    She is not a very healthy puppy, she has had two loose patellas and has had surgery for that. This means that she was in pain first and half of her puppy youth has been stolen from her because she has to rest a lot. Her character is very very soft and nice. She is like a daughter to us.

    I would not in a million years buy a puppy from a puppy mill, so the reason we had chosen for rutland manor was that we wanted a good breeder…if i had known better!!!

    Everyone with comments, please email me, I am really shocked!
    Best regards from Elisabeth (HOLLAND)

      Its very sad for your loss and hope little Chiara brings you years of joy. As you read below, Beverley has a knack for puppies dying and doesn’t care except for the lost income. She blames it on others. Nothing is ever her fault. Its probably the loss of income that upsets her, not the loss of a puppy life. Its been heard that a lot of people in Holland who love the Labradoodle are becoming wise to RM and staying away. Beverley has a huge ego and uses religion to suck people into her witchy spell but people are finally wising up in great numbers day by day.

    It is so sad and such a relief Chiara has a loving home and the care of Elisabeth.

    I wonder how all the puppies that were coming up with seizures recently are doing. And if she has lost her house, where are the breeding dogs? Where are the puppies being whelped? Don’t people on the wait list want to know? I guess there are still the ignorant people who would actually be on the wait list.
    Stop buying from RM and she won’t have anything to sell.
