The evidence on Tegan Park
“In 2005 Angela Cunningham ran a successful website and puppy breeding business, no information was allowed out on how enormous this business was but I can show you at least the evidence for some of her breeding. The Internet Archive takes snapshots of websites and stores them, often not completely but a record is maintained on http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://labradoodle.com. Many of the Tegan Park breeding bitches did not have kennel names or much pretence of pedigree. Many litters were not advertised on the website particularly repeat litters when the same pair had two litters in the year as they usually did. This list of 44 bitches and 18 dogs only represents some of the Tegan Park breeding machine and if you click on the links supplied as evidence you will find the original advert sometimes complete with photos.

Give it time to open and you can see Yoshi the bitch bought from ACA that failed her hip scores, no mention on this advert of where she came from or the danger to the health of her puppies. I don’t know what happened to her or even the majority of the Tegan Park dogs when it became obvious that they could not sell all the hundreds of puppies they were producing and Tegan Park went bust in 2007.
Here are some of them advertised for sale to be sent all over the world, (Give it time to open! UL). Many arrived in Europe where the breeders were less aware of the risks of getting a breeding dog with a high risk of HD, cataracts, or epilepsy from Rutland Manor and Tegan Park Puppy Farms, either bred by them or the other puppy farms who they collaborated with.
Yoshi was not the only one to fail her hip score, did the buyers know? Many of the buyers certainly did not know that their new breeding stock were PRA carriers and some were affected or sired by PRA affected dogs like Tegan Park Mr Iron Chef.
The buyers of course would have to breed these tainted dogs to get their money back. Some strong minded individuals are to be commended as they neutered and pet homed unfit breeding stock”
