Farms of Shame has received a bundle of pedigrees from the concerned owners of Jandaz puppies. My researchers have discovered that they show up the principle problems that we find in the paperwork issued by puppy farms: no health testing; under age and over age breeding; breeding on successive seasons, contrary to law; and pedigrees that may not even represent the parentage of the puppies sold.
I’ve given the “petnames” as a heading for each investigation but the dogs involved are clearly not pets.
According to Kennel Club records, Jandaz My Love had a litter of toy poodles sired by Black Blinky of Mansel on the 12th of September 2004. This was their only registered litter together and there were only two puppies: Jandaz Brown Betty and a brown dog puppy.
Jandaz Brown Betty had toy poodle litters for Janice Griffiths and I believe it can only be her that appears in pedigrees under the name of “Jandaz Bessie” as she has the same parents. Jandaz Brown Betty has no health tests.
On the 22nd of October 2007, Jandaz Brown Betty had a litter of toy poodles and just 2 weeks later, on the 3rd of November, “Jandaz Bessie” was also said to be the mother of a cockapoo litter to an American Cocker, Tisaj’s Eye Candy. One of the litter called Heidi (originally Jemma) was sold as prime breeding stock. It is unclear who the parents of these puppies really were and where they came from.
You will notice that the Jandaz ‘pedigree’ has the names changed and tweaked from the genuine UK Kennel Club registered names that I have used. This makes them impossible to find on the KC online tool when you look for health tests.
Similarly, toy poodle “Jandaz Fancy” (parents Marcus Witha Splish Splash and Jandaz Black Millie) had cockapoo litters for Janice Griffiths. There is NO “Jandaz Fancy,” but there is a Fancy Fuchsia with those same parents.
Fancy Fuchsia’s full litter sister is prcd PRA Affected. This is a genetic condition causing blindness. Fancy Fuchsia produced 2 prcd PRA affected puppies for a breeder just down the road from Jandaz using a stud dog from Janice’s lines.
Was Fancy then handed over to produce untraceable cockapoo puppies with mangled pedigrees for Jandaz? If not, who can she be? Jandaz lines are behind 4 of the 9 prcd PRA Affected toy poodles known to the UK Kennel Club
The name changes become all important when we look at another Jandaz ‘pedigree’. The dam of this litter was a gold English Cocker Spaniel, “Jandaz Absolutely Spiffing”, called Sadie by Janice Griffiths. “Jandaz Absolutely Spiffing” is unknown to the Kennel Club. There is, however, a Jandaz gold Cocker bitch with the same parents called Jandaz Absolutely Fabulous and it seems to me that the bitch has been renamed. But: why would anyone bother? Jandaz Absolutely Fabulous (or Spiffing) pet named Sadie was born on the 4th of December 2003 but was still apparently having litters at 8 years old on the 15th of January 2012. Sadie had yet another litter to Pablo on the 8th of June 2012, not quite 5 months later.
My researchers also noticed that a bitch, “Secret Miss”, not bred by Jandaz, had been Jandaziced to “Jandaz Secret Miss”! Tweaking and changing names effectively prevents owners without the research facilities available to me from knowing how old or how young the dam is or what health tests the parents of their puppy had (or, more likely didn’t have).
Jandaz Henryetta Coney was brought to my attention by the Labradoodle Forum. This tiny toy poodle bitch was born 31st of October 2006 and gave birth to her first litter of Cockapoos on the 30th November 2007. She had been mated as a 10 months old puppy to a working English Cocker Spaniel, Cynin Black Magic. Neither parent, of course, has any health testing. I find it difficult to believe that a breeder could not see just how risky this mating could be to her little puppy, unless money is her only aim.
Janice Griffiths has repeatedly denied mating male cockers to her tiny toy poodles. According to her own pedigrees, however, she does so as a matter of course.
