Deborah Hollington-Showboat Kennels Pickerington Ohio

Complaint: Since Deborah Hollington has been in business for quite some she has been selling the public a breed of dog that is rare. She claims the dog is solid in color and has type of Coton in her kennels and also has registry’s with the FCI, UKC, and AKC. The average propspective buyers does not know that these registry’s do not allow a solid color Coton. They have always been all white or white with some creme. The general public is fooled into purchasing these puppies at quite a large sum thinking they are receiving a full-blooded Coton, when they are not. It is believed that the breed has been crossed with a Havanese, Poodle, Bichon, or Yorkie, hence the color in the breed. If one goes to a web page on Havanese you will see that the colors of this breed are matching the colors that she sells and various other breeders in the United States. There are only 2 to 3 breeders in the United States that I would recommend to purchase a Coton, otherwise I would purchase them from Europe. Many of the puppymill breeders are illegally using the well-known kennel name of Woodland Cottage in their pedigree and several other well known European kennels. It is thought by producting these colored Cotons that it will keep the breed from developing an albino pup or deafness. There is no substaniated fact to that believe, unless your a Dalmatian or some other breed with those heritary defects. Also, any kennel that breeds colored Cotons will have their license pulled by the UKC and that is stated. So, many can preach the Bible and thump on it real hard, but, are they truly living their life by it? To sell these dogs to the public is a wrong that needs to be corrected and it’s very sad. The Coton only has five possible disease it can have and if tested properly you should end up with a dog that has little to none vet bills. Well, stop and think, when this breed has been bred to the other breeds listed, you are getting a multitude of diseases from them alone. Every rare breed has it’s issues before being accepted into the AKC. I have been around two others and have been sold dogs by breeders who say that this dog is a fine specimen of the breed. My Shar Pei in the early 80’s cost me $10,000 in two years at the vet because of the inherited diseases. Buyer beware and don’t buy from someone who has other reports done on them and accused of running a puppymill before checking everything out on your own. Buying your pup off the internet and the pictures look so cute and talking to the breeder on the phone and they sound so nice and honest! I receive a show dog from a “good”” breeder and found out it was blind. She was so nice and the pictures were so cute of the pups. Then when I found out it was blind she said it happened to it in shipping and in the crate and she wanted me to put the dog down. I was attached to the dog and could not do that

Address: so she sent me a replacement from the “”same”” mating. This was an inherited gene (recessive) and to mate the same pair should never have been done. I definitely have issues with the “”colored”” Cotons and what she sells. Do your research of her kennels and her dogs. Thank you.”
