HOW TO AVOID ALL ANIMAL ABUSERS LIKE THESE CONVICTED CRIMINALS: Please do NOT buy ANY animals in parking lots which is it illegal in most counties in our state now for Washington. Please go to people's homes to inspect them, get your paperwork including receipts with date and the breeder's contact information including their full name, address, emails and phones, a bill of sale or receipt with full contact information, the dog's registration papers and all their health records as well. Good breeders will hand over all paperwork when picking up your puppy or bird or horse or kitten or any animal without some vague promises of mailing the paperwork later, etc. DO NOT leave without any paperwork in case you have to return the animal when not as promised. And NO legit breeders make people meet them in parking lots because it really is that simple. How can you return any animal you bought to a parking lot? Buying and selling animals in parking lots is also illegal in most counties in Washington state now.
DO NOT ship any dogs either even if they have nice websites. Buy local so you do not get screwed ad there are many scam breeders online now demanding payment via web sites or money orders or... That way you can see with your own eyes if the dogs in their care are healthy, happy and socialized as well as selling them at 8 weeks or older even if they have very good excuses for selling them much younger.
Buy from legit breeders who do not make you text and will allow you to come to their home to inspect them and see how ALL their animals are treated. If you see filthy conditions like these Jeff and Sarah Schak who are west of Deer Park, Wash. when they also sell birds, pups and other farm animals. They house their animals in filth with a bunch of starved dogs then REPORT them to the local sheriff's office or police AND animal control please. Without witnesses coming forward quickly people like these jerks are allowed to keep starving their animals and selling their sick pups with parvo, giardia, fleas, tape worms as well as stressed and sick birds, bunnies, small farm animals, horses, etc.
When buying in parking lots you could be putting money in the hands of major animal abusers who starve their dogs and are prolific puppy mill breeders like these people, Jeff and Sarah Elaine Schak of Deer Park, Washington, who are many times convicted animal abusers. Sarah goes by many aliases so I am sharing her photos here. She only texts people at this number 509-768-6779 or other numbers as well. Their address is 4903 N Lenhard Lane, Deer Park, WA, 99006. (See photos of their farm here on this page.) They use drop phones too so beware.
Did you know the Schaks are now BANNED for five years from the American Kennel Club for selling their pups in disgusting conditions and selling mixed breeds mutts as papered purebreds? (See graphic on top right right from the AKC web site.) Let the buyer beware when the Schaks are constantly starving their animals or selling sick birds, farm animals and dogs of all breeds. I warn folks always when we are very tired of rescuing any dogs, birds, cats, etc. that they bred and horses they had at their fake horse rescue, Sleepy Hollow Horse Rescue which has since been closed by the sheriff's office for starving their horses, in 2005. They still breed birds of all cats, kinds, bunnies, farm animals, and dogs, etc. They also keep changing their business name, see the graphic on right.
If you were abused by these people contact the Stevens County Sheriff's office in Washington state right away and press charges so they can be closed for good. They need witnesses to come forward when you purchased starved, sick or abused animals of all kinds from them please.
Their dogs are warehoused in filthy conditions in a tiny building at mercy to the elements. Click the red button above for more details on that.
Some of the many dog breeds they have at the Schak's puppy mill also includes these breeds plus a mutt mixture of all of these breeds: goldens, cavalier king charles spaniels, shitzu, chihuahua, poodles, goldendoodles, yorkies, boston terrier, havanese, pomeranians, dachshunds, schanuzers, french bulldogs and every poodle mix under the sun. They get their breeders off of Craig's List and advertise them as purebreds with papers. They breed and breed without doing medical care nor do they do vet checks and don't give that paperwork to the new owners nor their shots or worming before selling them in parking lots! Good breeders specialize in one or two breeds.
This is the front of their farm in Washington state. BEWARE!
They often use this kennel shot, right, of when this building was first placed. It is now a nightmare, filthy, stinking mess as seen in the shots above and overcrowded with way too many dogs in too small of the space so the dogs fight and kill each other when hungry. So please inspect where the dogs live before you buy or wire money and meet in parking lots. The Schaks have been in trouble with three counties here in Washington state for starving animals and are convicted animal abusers. Why not find a better animal breeder who will allow you to go to their place and inspect them when paying them money? If they make you meet in parking lots, I keep warning folks that is always a sure sign they are a puppy mill or abusing their animals. Thanks for thinking and researching anyone before sending money to people like this or having the animals shipped to you. These folks have been starving animals here since 2003. Feel free to Google them. If folks will not give you their contact information such as full names, address, telephone, etc. that should also be a HUGE red flag if they do not give receipts with the dates. copies of their papers, written health guarantees and receipts with all their contact details in case you need to return that animal. Let the buyer beware and research your breeders please. Please just Google the phone number they are using and see how many ads they have online at one time will tell you great breeders specialize in one or two breeds of dogs, not a ton of different animals of all kinds with many litters at one time they can't socialize, worm, give shots, etc.
Have questions? Email Margo at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can point you to the right place to report these puppy mill breeders or folks near you.
One of their breeders with crooked legs on the left. Please be aware they often sell pups with no papers which they advertised as registered but now they can't register ANYTHING for five years with AKC for violations as of July 2016. I guess they should not find their breeding stock on Craig's List, right? Be aware they advertise their pups as registered but folks rarely get their papers and they stop answering their phone calls and texts or use this old puppy mill breeder's tricks.
This was the Schak's fake horse rescue above closed by law enforcement called Sleepy Hollow Horse Rescue. Law enforcement also closed their bird shop in Deer Park, Wash. that was called Tropical Treasures for not feeding them and filthy conditions.. There are no animals they will not breed for money while not bothering to do their health care much less feed them so they do small livestock and horses as well as cats, dogs and birds. This is some of the junk on their place now near Deer Park, below and right, while breeding 20+ breeds of small dogs and junk collecting apparently in every farm they live.

One of the vehicles Jeff drives. He sells in parking lots all over the Pacific Northwest when he is out of town on his construction job. UPDATE: Jeff SChak was fired for stealing from that construction company. Sarah Schak drives a White or green SUV or has others sell dogs for her when we posted her photos. Let the buyer beware! Stolen show dog photo to the right used to advertise their Havanese dogs for sale.
Are you sure you want to buy ANY animals from these folks or people just like them? How can you tell how they treat their breeders if you do not inspect them first? Many dogs sold on the Internet are living in this filthy, tiny building but you can't smell how awful it smells when buying animals online or to have them shipped to you or to pick them up in a parking lot. They advertise all over websites asking folks to text them and use sites like Craig's List and puppyfind.com and other puppy and small animals sites all over the Internet. Please go and inspect anyone selling any animals over the Internet and report them if you see their animals in these conditions.
