Ozzy’s Story

July 11, 2011

More and more people are contacting us with their stories of Rutland Manor and the health conditions of their beloved dogs. Buying a Rutland Manor dog is expensive but the hidden costs is something Beverley does not reveal. There has never been any health tests published about any of the Rutland Manor breeding dogs, its all a huge secret and the consumer is always left with the huge vet bill and the heartbreak. Here is Ozzy’s story and we learn of 3 dogs purchased by the one family all with health problems.

Do you still want that expensive Rutland Manor ‘poodle’?

To all concerned,

We purchased our beloved doodle Ozzy in May of 2008 and he was the last litter that Yogi Bean had with Charlamagne.

When Ozzy arrived at DIA I was  a little shocked about his condition, he was rather small    and his lower jaw was slightly deformed.  But there was no way I was going to put this  precious baby back on a plane to Austrailia.  Ozzy has done extremely well up until 2 months  ago.  I noticed depression, loss of engery and stiffness in his limbs.  The first month I  thought because our household had changed somewhat it was taking an effect on Ozzy, but  as it progressed I sought medical attention.  His first blood test came back with with high kidney levels that the vet had never seen in such a young dog and his urine was diluted, did xrays that were inconclusive and recommended an ultrasound which we had done.  The ultra showed two kidneys but the left appears to have some type of calicification in it.  I then changed his diet to strictly organic and filtered water.  A week later the blood test came back with kidney levels normal but his bilirubin levels were exremely high 1.9 and the ultra sound did show the liver was small.  My vet is stumped, we are doing a bile acid blood test next week and a complete thyroid panel.  If these are inconclusive she is referring me to Colorado State University Veterinary School.  My sister and mother both have purchased doodles’ from Rutland Manor and both have medical problems:  one has a unidentified liver problem she is 4 parents Rosie and the studs name I can not remember and the other has hip dyplasia at the age of 4 parents Irish Night aka Coal and Lil Woo Woo.  Needless to say we are heartbroken, when we thought we were getting our pets from a loving breeder who turns out to be the worst of the worst.   If anyone has information on liver conditions from Rutland Manor I would love to hear from you.  Regards, Sandra and Ozzy

    His mom died of Chronic Active Hepatitis just after Ozzy was born, Lil Yogi Bean was mated to Charlemagne when she was ill, that was her death sentence. Bev is completely merciless, does everyone remember her breeding her mare that was dying of cancer?

    God will not forgive you Bev for the way you have treated His creatures.

    HI Sandra, Thank you so much for telling Ozzy’s story. One of the real tragedies of RMs ‘breading program’ is that so many good people have to watch their beloved dogs suffering. We bought dogs from, what we thought was an ethical and caring breeder, because we care about the health and well being of our animals. Then to find that so many of these dogs have serious health problems and that the RM ‘breeding’ dogs have not been treated the way we expected, is devastating. However the more people that speak out about this, the greater the chance that others won’t buy dogs from places like RM. So thanks again for speaking out. Hope all goes well with Ozzy’s health it seems he is in good hands!

    Oh Sandra, how awful for your family. Please Ozzy GET WELL!
    I sent my pedigree to, The parents of your dogs are on there with the dates and names of their litters, it would be somewhere to send the important health information you have.
    I searched for Rosie on the database and found that it is the given name of Rutlands Redd Rosette, If you have the date of birth you may be able to find who the stud is or at least who RM says are the parents 😦

    Thank you everyone – My sisters pet is the offspring of Redd Rosette and Kelby her name is Rascal and she had an unidentified liver condition at the beginning of this year and has temperment problems. I will get the results of Ozzy’s Bile Acid test and Thyroid panel tomorrow and will post the results.

      WIshing everyone one a Happy New Year – Ozzy was diagnoised with Hypo-thyrodism. Our vet has never seen such low levels. He is on medication, natural diet and filtered water. He has regained his vitality and has done a 180. I apologize i didn’t report back sooner but we have been extremely busy. I am just so happy that we seem to have found the problem, everyday is a blessing with my little companion – his half sister Honey out of Yogi Bean and Coal came to live with us this past fall and she completes our family. Thank you everyone for all the information and compassion.

    Is it possible that people who pay such huge money for prestige dogs, expect perfection?

    No perfect world, no perfect people….and no perfect dogs.

      You are way off here, I don’t think people expect perfection in their hybrid dogs. What they expect is a loving, healthy dog. They don’t expect to be lied to. I don’t know anyone who has a Labradoodle for prestige! What on earth for?
      Many people don’t know what they have in their so called Labradoodles but love them to pieces anyway.

      And what people pay for their dogs, cars, clothes etc is their business. I would be as pissed if I bought a dog for $50.00 and was told the same lies that this particular breeder tells about her high cost dogs. People don’t like being lied to.

    It is now known that one of Beverley’s house dogs, Stella, has died. She was a good old girl and surely will be missed by everyone who knew her. She was about 11 years old and I hope she wasn’t one that was overbred.
