Cruel Breeder

I would like to report a breeder by the name of Mindy Robertson, based in Vanderbijlpark, Sedibeng. She places several ads on Gumtree on a monthly basis and claims to have pups from KUSA registered parents. She sells the pups with a vet certificate, stating that the pups bill of health is 100%.

I purchased such a pup in December and paid for the KUSA papers. After waiting several weeks and having taken the puppy to one of South Africa’s best vets after a seizure, the vet diagnosed the puppy as a water head and should have never been cleared as healthy. The veterinary certificate turned out to be a fake and the KUSA documents never arrived.

After speaking to several breeders, they claimed that Mindy Robertson often calls them and buys pups in bulk from them. One or two of the breeders have stopped selling to her as the believe she is running a puppy mill, selling all sorts of puppy, regardless of their bill of health.

I wanted to take this story to Carte Blanch, as I believe it needs to be exposed.

She has several numbers and names. She also claims to be associated with several breeders, who have denied ever knowing of her.

I trust you will be able to place this information on a public platform where other potential buyers can be warned and hopefully stop this Mindy Robertson from selling further puppies.

    Wow, I can't believe this as I am reading this. We got a tiny little baby from Mindy and after having him for only two months he had a seizure and passed away. The vet diagnosed the baby with water on the brain and said this was a result of poor breeding. When I contacted Mindy about this she said it was definitely not the case and he must have suffered head trauma. I felt so terrible thinking it was our fault and we bought another one from her. Our second one has had breathing problems and when I spoke to a friend who bought two from her she says they also have had breathing problems. I wish she knew the pain she was causing as losing such a small baby still brings tears to my eyes. It is cruel and irresponsible. What can we do about it?

    Exactly the same incident with me. My puppy showed signs of bad health from day 1, and every time I phoned to ask her opinion, she said I must keep feeding him the food she gave me when I collected him. Turns out, this food she prescribed was toxic for him, and resulted in his death a little over a month of having him and over R10 000 spent on veterinary bills. Mindy Robertson is a cruel and money-hungry woman who doesn't care for the animals at all!

    I too was taken for a ride by the this cruel woman. She goes around buying puppies and selling them onto the public, claiming to be a registered breeder. She is full of lies and empty promises. The vet card that she provided was also a fake, as both contact details and veterinary clinic are fictitious. She is nothing more than a lying thief!
