A year or so ago I was an idiot just coming out of the idiotic furmommy adopt-don't-shop phase and I decided stupidly to breed my dog, I didn't know at the time what health testing was and I thought it was just a clean bill of health from the vet. The breeding didn't take but later I got two Chi pups and a husky pup, I posted a video of them playing and people decided because my house was a 30 year old dingy old hole in Mexico that I "never clean", they started going after me, calling me a hoarder, making a group specifically to harass me and screenshotting EVERYTHING I did in EVERY group. Even editing screenshots and attributing comments to me that were made by other people. Somehow that now has evolved and it seems I can't post anywhere without being accused of being a hoarder, flipper, dog abuser, housebreaker and God knows what else.
I have not sold a dog, like, EVER, and many of my dogs are rescues. Never mind AC approves of the way I keep my animals, never mind that an actual reputable breeder looked at my living situation and willingly sold me a dog because she knew I would always care for her. All my salary goes to my dogs. They get homemade raw food, tip top vet care, the best of the best. They are my whole life. And this is REALLY getting on my nerves, to the point where my dogs and bf are literally the only things keeping me going. These people live in a whole other country from me, yet do not hesitate to pretend they know me better than I do and to make up lies. Some have even gone so far as to claim I sold them a dog (they were later forced to admit they were just making it up and got the photo off Google). I'm so over it at this point and I just can't anymore. They'll literally post a SS of my profile showing pics of 4 well cared for dogs and claim that "proves hoarding" when two of said dogs are dogs I had when I was a kid and don't have anymore...then they claim that me not having them anymore means I'm a "flipper". My reputation in dogbook is in shambles, I see no way of fixing it, and all over the pettiness of some people. I don't know what to do. I want to be a reputable breeder/show owner once I get the hang fully of genetics, health testing, temperament testing, titling etc, and all these people want to do is bring me down. Even my beautiful show line collie girl they claim is "hideous", "lacks breed type" and "looks like a badly done taxidermy". They just don't stop and it's been a year and a half almost of constant harassment. I've switched profiles, left groups, changed names, and nothing works.
To make matters worse, a "friend" who I thought I could trust told these people I have almost twice as many dogs as I actually have, that I have "countless" unfixed cats that I breed for money, and a lot of other lies. She also played dumb when I straight up asked her if it was she, until I caught her out red-handed. Upon which she flipped tables on me, telling me I betrayed HER by planning to ethically and responsibly breed my dog if she passes health and temperament testing sometime in the future. She even threatened me. And I'm so broken, because I trusted this person and looked up to her.
