I think that one of you contacted me about the Wards awhile back.  I think it's fabulous that you've decided to 'take 'em on'!  What a couple of idiots those people are.
Several years ago myself and two other people active in the Dane community went to the Wards with myself posing as a newbie to Danes and future owner.  We wanted to see if they were breeding litters as well as trafficking in Danes.  What we found made us sick.  No screening of either dog nor possible future owner was done.  People were being overcharged and lied to about the 'source' of the dogs.  The place was filthy and stunk to high heavens.  Even their home smelled so strongly of urine that we could smell it outside the closed front door.  There were 3 harl pups around 3-4 months old closed in a bathroom with shit smeared all over the walls and toilet.  One dog was chained and obviously aggressive.  The were still offering him as an adoptee!  There was a blind wobbler bitch that they refused to euthanize.  She was shy and terrified!  It made us sick!  These people need to be shut down!  They don't even deserve to own a house plant!  If there's anything I can do, please let me know.  -- Name withheld at the request of the author
