Yeah, I was speechless too.
And then I was angry. Apparently this breeder had sold a puppy to a family with a child who had autism, and because THAT child was aggressive with the puppy she has decided every other child with Autism (or DS) must be as well. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr
Now, I realize it wasn't YOU, my readers, who made those assumptions, but since it's DS awareness month, I decided to post these old videos of Angela with the dogs.
The first is when she was 10. Our puppy are matched with their families at about 6 weeks old. Once they're matched the family can name the puppy and we try to call them by name whenever handling them. Many of the families live out of state, so we post videos on our puppy website so they can see their puppies!
This next one is when Angela was 9, taking a Jr. Handler class. She was the youngest
in the class.
This last one is when Angela was 11, taking a Jr. agility class with her dog Dudley. This was her first time ever in the agility ring!
