I bought Bosephus his puppy name in 2009 from Ruby he sadly passed away earlier this year not from any defect or anything he got sick from a Kennel we had him in here in MO after we moved out of CA. Let me just say this to the negative reviews on here this was one of the best dogs I’ve ever owned I’ve got pictures of him at 97 pounds when he was only 2 ½ years old with my 8 month old son on the floor together and his temperament and gentleness was absolutely amazing. Ruby produced an amazing pup in Bosephus and he did an amazing job at protecting my family while I was at work. His health was amazing his hips were strong and sound as well I know this because I owned a Tri-level two story home so Bosephus got a workout every day going up and down the stairs in my house but even with all that exercise he still weighed 121 pounds I will never ever forget him and I would in a second go back to Ruby to get another pup once my heart heals from losing Bosephus unexpectedly. In some other reviews some from birdeye.com it seems to me too many people get caught up in the appearance of the Ranch and then immediately assume nothing good can be produced out of it strictly because it doesn’t look like a millions dollars or something….that is not the case I can assure you as the age old adage goes never judge a book by its cover and I hope my story helps people in making a decision whatever it may be.
I have two dogs from Ruby and I have to say I recommend Ruby at followyourdreamranch to everyone that is looking for a outstanding quality german shepherd!!!!! These are the best dogs I have ever owned!!!!!! I could not imagine life without them, and it would not of been possible without the kindness and compassion of Ruby!!!!! She raises the best dogs ever!!!!
I have bred my female that is from her lines and everyone that has ever got one has amazing things to say about them, Ruby is who I always recommend!!!! Not only is she a great person who makes you feel at home, and like a life long friend, which once you know her you will surely become! But she raises exceptional dogs!!! she cares deeply about each and every dog that she has ever raised and takes the time to always be willing to offer advice or help!!
My family and I adopted a beyond beautiful GSD puppy from Ruby two years ago, and we could not be more pleased. If you are going to buy a German Shepherd, do it through Follow Your Dream Ranch, because you will get one of the greatest companions and passionate best friends through it. Five stars without hesitation.
We went to her ranch to meet the four week old puppies to see what they were like and we were treated like best friends--we've never felt more welcome and Ruby is the most hospitable person you'll meet! Her dogs have lots of room to run and play in a large grassy field, which is wonderful. I knew from the moment we drove up to her ranch that she was a good breeder. The dogs all looked so happy and healthy, and came to greet us with lots of love! Great tempered dogs.
When we played with the puppies, every single one of them were well taken care of--they were all clean and had soft, fluffy coats and wet noses (wet noses are signs of incredibly healthy pups!). We met lovable Reagan (my now best friend), and he fell asleep right in my arms, showed friendly, happy temperament and exhibited courage right from the start!
When he started growing, we didn't know if he'd stop! He is currently two years old with 95 pounds of sheer muscle and fur. He hasn't had one health problem since we've got him, and I do not exaggerate when I say this--every time we take Reagan to the park, or on a walk, or to the beach, we get at least two compliments on how beautiful and well behaved he is, I kid you not. Reagan is massive and he has big beautiful teeth, but he does not use those teeth to his advantage, ever. He plays well with dogs that are 1/10th of his size, and dogs that are twice his size! He has never been aggressive with a dog that has attacked him personally (thought with me, that's another matter. I'll elaborate on that later) I strongly believe this has an enormous amount to do with his lineage. We have trained him to do so many wonderful things, such as "on your side" and "head down" (this is the most submissive state a dog can be in, and he does it without hesitation!), and without struggle. He is very easy to train!
I can go on forever about Reagan, but I'll just say one or two last things. He is an amazing protector. When we first got him, he was so friendly to our cats, other dogs on walks and their owners that we thought he was going to be too kind! But he proved himself one day when an aggressive, excited dog came my way while we were walking. Reagan growled and stepped in front of me in the most majestic, protective way possible, and the dog backed off immediately. I can't imagine my life without my baby, and Ruby and I still keep in contact via email to share how our babies are doing and what they've been up to.
If you'd like a picture of Reagan or additional information, feel free to contact me via facebook! (http://www.facebook.com/rayy.chel)
I have a GSD that I purchased 3 years ago and she is the best dog possible. My pup made service dog certification before it was 1 year old. She knows my home and heart, she knows who should be allowed in the house be my demeanor and feels when to be nice to people at my door and when they are not wanted. My dog has a great pedigree and her bloodlines are wonderful, she is a beautiful 89 pound bi colored beauty.
She is beautiful and in the near future I want to get a male pup as well and I will be buying from this breeder again.
Any bad review on this person as a breeder is the result of someone that has no idea what they are talking about and has no idea what a good dog is and the bad review is not deserved. I am pretty sure the definition of a farm is to have many animals and I can say that I know the animals here are very well maintained.
I will back this breeder and she is welcome to give my email as a reference to the quality of her dogs.
Go GSD Power!!
Beware of the backyard breeder!!
Even after reading the other review on here I thought I'd meet the breeder and make my own judgement..well, I should have heeded the advice of the previous reviewer.
I drove down to her ranch as she calls it..Animals running loose all over. She seemed so nice and personable and I fell in love with the puppies,
I just tried to overlook the conditions and sum it up to farm living. Big mistake..bought my puppy and of course took him to my vet the next day to start heartworm treatment and check-up, like you'd do any new pet added to your family.
He has a large hernia and needs surgery, stool sample came back positive for giardia, he was loaded with these parasites ( comes from drinking dirty contaminated water.) Hence, the alpacas, chickens, goats ect. running and leaving feces everywhere and in puddles of water the puppies drank from.
I did call her and really trusted in, she'd do the right thing.Help me with vet bills or refund my money. Nope, she couldn't have cared less and actually told me ,quote, , to quit freaking out is was no big deal unquote.; her words exactly.
I was upset and crying for many reasons,
what did I just expose my family to, heartbroken my new little addition was sick, not what you expect when buying a puppy from, one who calls herself a professional breeder.
She was heartless and unconcerned.
Giardia is, a pretty big deal and can be passed to humans. Sometimes takes 2-3 treatments and retesting. If you have doubts look it up the computer or talk to your own vet.
I have children and other pets in my home to protect.
The Kicker is, SHE KNEW the pup had this and did not disclose this information to me, letting me put my whole family at risk!! She told me she had already given him medicine.
If , that's true and, my vet said he is really infected she sold me a pretty sick pup.
My husband asked her to please tell the other owners that their puppies may be infected too, but considering her attitude with me , I doubt she did.
She also knew of the hernia issue to, said her others dogs have hernias also and they're fine..Well, my Vet said I should responsibly neuter the pup as to not pass this gene along, Its a defect. So. I guess that means its not fine.
Also the only way to treat your yard where the infected animal has left feces, is to completely let the area dry out and die by sunlight and start over. It can't be killed any other way. It's a very resilient parasite.
