Sweet Lies!

Posted by P4PO on May 10, 2019 at 7:50 PM

No matter how normal people like to make themselves seem to the public sooner or later their true selves tend to come out. I recently introduced you to Cynthia Sweet owner of Sweet Paws rescue in Massachusetts. Looking through her media appearances and Facebook page was a trip down the proverbial rabbit hole. The very first thing that jumped out at me though was the above post. She is admitting that the reason she wanted these dogs away from the breeder is because she loathes breeders. Well, now that we have that out of the way let’s take a closer look at Ms. Cynthia.


The most important thing to know about Cynthia is that she doesn’t seem to have much fondness for the truth. She emphatically states that none of the dogs that were turned over to her rescue had ever been to the vet. That lie managed to get people up in arms fast and the donations, of course started pouring in.

 


Apparently it never occurred to the unthinking masses that there are ways to find out if that was true or not. It took about 5 minutes before people started messaging P4 with links to the dogs health clearances. It has been quite a mystery how this magical breeder could get OFAs on her dogs without going to a vet.

Newsflash: You can’t.




If you follow the P4PO Facebook page you will have seen several postings about this already, so there’s no need to add more here.


So, now that we know Cynthia may not always tell the truth everything she has said suddenly becomes suspicious.

Let’s look at the entire post that I shared screenshots from above. It’s full of deceptive statements with one goal in mind, raising more and more money.




Because I know how to use the Google machine and apparently Cyndy Lou Liar can’t I decided to look at the pedigrees of the breeders dogs. Anyone can do this, so I am not going to take up time and space here posting more than one. Here is the pedigree for Mia,one of the bitches seized.



The pretty purple colors mean I clicked on each of those links and checked health testing. Guess what? They are all health tested, so Cyndy Lou Liar is being true to form and making up a false narrative probably in hope of raising more money for her “rescue”. Clearly the breeder was doing the exact opposite of what Cynthia claims because her pedigrees show generation after generation of health-tested dogs. Mia not only has OFA Good hips and Normal elbows, her Golden Retriever form Ichthyosis status is clear. What this means is Mia has been cleared through DNA. Ichthyosis is a skin disorder that may appear in some lines of the breed. A breeder who tests for it obviously cares about the health of her dogs.


Apparently Cynthia doesn’t know enough about dogs to know that papilloma just means warts. This screenshot is from another heartbreaking case we blogged about and is shared with permission.



Of course, Cyndy Lou Liar Knows she will make even more money from the dogs if she lies about the severity of the virus.


Cynthia sure does love her buzzwords though, especially when referring to the dogs as “aggressive, skittish, unsocialized and the big one medically compromised”. Brace yourself for the following pictures taken the day CLL got the dogs.

Anyone working with aggressive dogs knows that the way to handle them is not to pack them into a van and then bring them to an unknown destination and have strangers take them out of crates. That is a recipe for disaster, and you can see Cyndy did the right thing knowing these dogs were aggressive and made sure only experienced people were handling these dogs with catchpoles and appropriate clothing.

Just kidding. You can see in the following pictures how concerned she truly was about these dogs being aggressive.



This volunteer is obviously terrified and the dog is totally skittish.


These two are totally freaking out, between the strangers and the camera they can’t decide if they should maul the cameraman of flee in a panic.

 

 

I think the one on the right is going for the jugular and the one on the left is frantically trying to hide from the volunteer.


I commend all the volunteers especially this jolly fellow for putting their lives and limbs in danger handling the skittish aggressive dogs.

CLL loves her little rants and is easily triggered especially about money and we are definitely not the first ones to question the fact that the rescue that she owns, runs and is the employed by has close to $250,000 in assets.


Well this is been fun, and I can’t wait for you all to see what’s coming up next!


(Shout out to RM for helping me with this, who would have ever thought this day would come xoxo)
