finding a good breeder is a nightmare

Post by candicelynn » Sun Jul 08, 2012 6:26 pm

Our family has been looking at getting a tamaskan for several years. But how can we decide with so many rumors. And the website tamaskan truth....scares us badly. Anyone who has dogs that are great and have dealt with great breeders please let us know! Lol.

I don't have a Tamaskan, but I have spoken with Tracy at Hawthorne and the Bannows at Tarheel. I would recommend either one of them since you're in the states. I believe White Elk is planning a litter soon, so you might want to contact them as well - they're using a stud from Hawthorne for their first litter.

WhiteElk is planning a litter and their girls are gorgeous :D . Also Hawthorne and Tarheel have beautiful dogs. I'm sure none of the 3 would mind answering a few questions.

Also, Rahne has put together an online date base so you can look up dogs that come from each breeder (and by call name so you can look them up on the forum), so you can pm owners who have bought pups of the breeder and ask them their opinions of the breeder... No body on hear would mind you asking :D

My boy came from Pete Saxon and he was awesome... He really is a great guy who cares about his dogs and the homes the pups are placed into. All the pups so far have been great with good temperaments and perfectly adapted to home life when they were ready to leave... But he is in Bulgaria so it would be more pricey to import when there are a few breeders (one of which is planning a litter soon) in the usa.

One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

That website scares me too... it is full of lies! There are SOME true facts, but it is all mixed up with phony photoshopped newspaper article 'screenshots' that are completely fabricated. Much of that website is pure defamation.

If you want a Tamaskan the ones that been said earlier are great. If you looking for an AAtu you can take a look at Conchur in Beaverton, Oregon

To add on Debby here: The one that made this site is also crazy. Telling he has been in contact with people he never been in contact with. Telling people sell pups while they doing work on socialization..........
Besides that the TDR and Aatu(TBA) people didn't always went well with each other we all agree that this site isn't the best for your information ;)

Candice,
I believe I wrote you from my Tarheel Tamaskan website today. You can reach me here through PM, my personal email tarheel.tamaskan@yahoo.com, or at my phone number that I provided you.

Yes. I have been in contact with a few breeders. Just trying to get a feel for them. Its scary business trying to find one. Adding a new dog to the family is a big thing and we just want to make the best possible choice and get the best possible dog for us. I will be making a choice this weekend and sending in a deposit to whoever my husband and i agree on. :-) if anyone has any info they would like to share on their experiences i would appreciate it. Looking forward to one day owning a tamaskan Such a beautiful and wonderful breed

I noticed you live in Virginia. I live in Maryland and just recently adopted my first Tamaskan from Hawthorne in Pennsylvania. Max is now almost 6 months and is the most loving, friendly, easy going pup I've ever seen, and I've heard the same thing from those who have met him. He loves everyone, and especially children. He is really fond of the smaller ones, as well as smaller dogs, but loves to play with them all. I think he trully believes every person and animal was put here just for him :lol:

I feel so blessed that I found Hawthorne Tamaskan Breeders. They are registered breeders with this site and were exemplary in every way. They even set up a UStream account on Facebook so we could all watch the puppies each day as they played, slept, and ate from Mom. I believe they may be planning another breeding within the next year. All the breeders that have commented here are also registered and very serious about the health and welfare of this breed first and foremost. If you live close to or in Northern Virginia, you and your family are welcome to meet him and decide for yourself if this is the breed you want for your forever family pet.

I think we have decided to go with white elk. Were very impressed by their application and their request for photos of us and our lifestyle. Gave us the more personal feeling we were looking for.

Good choice! I believe the mating will be with the Hawthorne male, Darwin.
