Maybe the owner has the phone, etc. in her own name or maybe they have a corporate name that they use for public records and they probably don't have a web site. If I were interested in getting this info, I would just PM or email Sarah. You can always post the info here later.

Yes, she could do that, or Sarah could just post it here for us herself.

Just curious why you are trying to look for it? It is possible that it is such a small organization that they don't have any info on the web I guess.

PuppyLucy and I have chatted about this and I just thought I would inform others who are wondering as well. I believe I have said this befor ebut not sure Luvnpaws is a very small org. It is located in Lubbock,Tx. There is no kennel or office. The owner does all business through her own home. She is an older woman who (even though I have tried to explain it) doesnt see the impact having a website would cause. She is very oldfashion. They dont have a business listed phone number again the owners is used. I would love to know where you found that list Lady, I'm sure we would love to be included.

There are several times I have received nasty pms of people calling me a fibber about all of this. I feel I need to tell you more info so maybe this will stop. Please forgive my spelling and grammer for I'm very tired. Luvnpaws is small I believe right now we have 3 females who produce puppies for us. Two are Maltese and one Poodle. Our owner has owned and competed with mini poodles her whole life in ob and some ag. She worked for the local ob club for years as trainer and loved it. About 10 years ago her husband became so hard of hearing he required assistance. She was gone much of the time with the trails she didnt feel right leaving him at home. He wasnt in to traveling so attending trails with her wasnt a good option. They looked into several hearing aids and surgery but nothing helped or seemed right. While attending a trail she met a lady who trained dogs for the hearing imp. After months of talking they got a maltes from this woman for her husband. He was trained but he needed a little work and her friend helped her with the finishing touches. Our owner saw the need for this type of help in the west texas area. She wanted to help and started this "business". We have never had any more than 15 pups a year to place in homes. When its time for the puppies to leave the breeders they go to her home where she works on them nonstop to make them the best pet/therapy dog she can. Some make the training others dont but they all come out very well behaved. I would also like to mention as I did in a previous post that Luvnpaws now has a policy to rescue and train 10 shelters dogs to every 1 puppy they breed. A few of the shelter dogs rescued become therapy dogs but most just are great pets. Ok I'm way
for not going to sleep already I have to be at work at 7:30. I will be hating this in the am but I just felt the need to defend my self as well as Luvnpaws. For those of you sending nasty emails as well as pms. Please stop its getting old. :D

Sarah, I think you are amazing in that you can get nasty emails and PMs and still be so darn nice! I know for sure that I would not be as nice as you if I were in that same situation.

If you are still getting the nasty emails and PMs, and I'm assuming they came through SM directly, Joe may be able to help you by blocking those people from contacting you again. If I ever got a nasty email or PM, the first thing I would do is contact Joe with a copy of it, as I am sure he would not want that type of thing going on on this site.

I am appalled at that type of behavior!!! I think those e-mails should be posted so that the rest of us know who the mean spirits are. It is not as if you are asking for funds or taking advantage of memebers of the forum in any way.

I am sorry that this has happened. I keep reading in this forum how much "better" it is than "other" forum.......... things like this make you wonder.

In any online forum members must take what is written in good faith, otherwise there is no point in the forum.

I haven't been involved in the discussion on this thread or the others that pertained to it. I, too, am sorry that Sarah is getting nasty PM's. I agree with K/C's mom that she should report those to Joe. But I don't think that PM's should be posted. We occassionally send a PM to someone to offer a suggestion or to ask a question or to show support, and I believe that they should remain private. I haven't ever said anything in a PM that I am emabarrassed or ashamed of, but if I wanted them to be public I would post them in the public forum. If the PM's are harrassing or ugly in nature THEN I would forward them to Joe and ask that he deal with the sender.

I think Sarah is too much of a lady and has too much character to post the nasty PM's. She won't stoop to the level that some have one here with her.

It really is a shame that there are people of this caliber on her who would go to this length with Sarah. I hope they crawl in their low class hole and don't come back out to post again. We don't need people like that on here.

Of course you are correct, I wasn't thinking. It just seemed a shame that she would have to face a private attack in the form of a PM when she should have the support of the forum.

It sounds to me like the organization is wonderful.
I
you and the lady who started it.
Re: Not finding it on the web...
Sometimes smaller and less commercialized is better in my opinion. If that is working for the people involved, and they don't see the need to expand it at this time...then it sounds to me like they are doing it for the right reasons and working within everyone's means who are involved. JMO

Sorry you are getting bashed in PM's.

No, they heard about the program from my parents are are interested in getting involved. However, the organization is in Lubbock and we're in FL, so unfortunately it won't work out.
