The Stop Rutland Manor website has published the fact that Rutlands Bobbi and Rutlands Billie Jo were sold by Beverley Manners to ACA now known as Banksia Park Puppies. As promised we can offer more information about their life and possible future at Banksia through the Diary entries which chart the lives of dogs on the puppy farm as shown in these entries.
When Rutlands Billie and Bobbi Jo first arrived the staff did not know which was which, but that didn’t matter to anyone as dogs don’t usually have names at Banksia and are identified by approximate breed and frequent use of the microchip reader.
Billie Jo’s microchip number is 956000000081915, Bobbi Jo’s is 956000000075770. The only documents that are kept for the dogs are concerned with their breeding so here is what happened to Bobbi Jo who we can trace through the last numbers of her chip 5770.
Go down the page passed 2 Bichons and you will find a Cocker cross mated on the 5th of April 2007 to a “Cavie” (a Cavalier stud dog). Her microchip is shown as 5770 but there was the usual confusion and Billie is “corrected” to Bobby Joe
Next about the 31st of October 2007 Bobbi Jo was mated to a Spoodle twice and then to Whizz Kid, she is now described as a mini labradoodle but as Banksia were now mating each bitch to several different dogs it hardly mattered what breed the puppies would be. If a bitch stops breeding she will be destroyed.
We also have the copies of Bobbi Jo’s breeding in 2008, on the 9th of May 2008, (again wrongly identified as her sister Billie) to a Cocker and then on the 4th of December 2008 to a Cocker Cavie cross .
Bobbi Jo had more litters in 2009, we just hope she and her sister are still alive, but the odds are against them surviving much longer.
So what happens to old breeding stock at Banksia? Again we have the evidence to show you. Every dog, however much they have earned their owner the Ham’s family which owns Banksia Park Puppies, is worth $20, the price of the vet’s injection. Colin Hams has even stated on television that he kills the dogs when they stop producing. Unwanted stock is put down in batches for convenience sake, 24 dogs were destroyed by the Ham’s vets in a couple of weeks in December 2007 as you can see below. No name or microchip even records their passing.Can anything be done to save the two sisters sold to this hell hole by Beverley Manners, or are they only worth the last 20 dollars each? Judge for yourself
