Re: Timber Ridge Tamaskan, Puppy Mill?

Yeah, I found out they are breeding a dog from Ratliff, you're guess is correct. I contacted the person on Reddit and informed them that it's an not reputable BYB. Thanks for the help.

Timber Ridge Tamaskan, Puppy Mill?

Hey all. A person from Reddit.com has been looking for Tamaskans, I steered them away from Kevin S. and his puppy mill, but now that person is looking at a place called Timber Ridge Tamaskan out of Pioneer California? Anyone have more info on Timber Ridge?

Any thoughts on height ranges for females? I've got a Sharayah x Jaeger puppy (Oslett) and a Leilah x Zeus puppy (Sierra) and both dams were on the fairly short end of the spectrum. My Oslett puppy Echo is about 26" and my Sierra puppy Tusk (who's only a year, still some more growing to do) is about...

From a training and recall standpoint, a good name probably needs to have some strong syllables in it, but this can be achieved in a nickname too.
