Kennel where Biden bought dog is cited

The Pennsylvania kennel where Vice President-elect Joe Biden bought his German Shepherd puppy was cited for records violations days after he picked out the dog.

After a regularly scheduled inspection on Dec. 10, four days after Biden picked out his 3-month-old puppy, the Wolf Den Kennel  was cited for a record-keeping violation and failure to produce records of rabies vaccinations, according to state records. Each citation carries a fine of $50 to $300.

Linda Brown, who also operates the kennel in Chester County as Jolindy’s German Shepherds, said she had never before been cited, and said the records in question were accidentally tossed out when the kennel cleaned up in preparation for Biden’s visit.

“We went in there and cleaned everything up and I didn’t even think about it,” she said. “How many times does the vice president visit? Maybe once in a lifetime?”

Brown said she had since gotten copies of the rabies vaccinations and given them to state officials.

We purchased a Jolindy GSD pup on Dec 2, 2005 who we love dearly. BUT – poor breeding. He has chronic SIBO, Anal Fistulas and latest dx EPI. We purchased his and brought him home from Jolindy’s when he was only 5.5 weeks old – too soon we now know. He had Giardia and was on medications for SIBO for the first 6 months of his life. SIBO continued every few months which required more medication. Now at 3 yrs old he is struggling to keep weight on, absorb nutrients along with PAF surgery 6 months ago. We also were promised AKC registration papers – never received – but sent some unknown “registry papers” from a “registry” that did not even provide a telephone number – just a PO Box……. We gave up on papers after 6 months of hounding Linda Brown. Bottom line – we LOVE this dog and he loves us back – His body tries so hard to get better but the effects of Linda’s greed = poor breeding – and false assurances – Our dog will never get to be a “senior” GSD

We also bought a puppy from Linda Brown eight years ago. We were recommended by a neighbor who had a very nice GS. The barn was disgusting, and smelled awful, and she would not show us the Mom, we only got to see the father and the grandfather of our puppy… we loved our Lexi, but she was very high strung, and we NEVER received our papers for her even after constantly asking Linda for them. I am also sad to say Lexi died of Liver cancer at the age of 8.

That is very young for a GS. LInda should not be allowed to sell dogs!!! I wish I had written this sooner. and to top it off she still brags on her website that VP Joe Biden bought a puppy from her.

I bought a GS in September 2008 from Linda. Ania is a fabulous dog, never sick, fine hips and great disposition. She might be a litter mate of Biden’s dog. Linda showed us both parents and was forthcoming about everything. Other than worming, Ania needed nothing. The place was fine if one does not expect a sterile environment. puppies poop and pee constantly and smell like normal animals do. I am really happy with Ania and hope to get my next GS from Linda. Best puppy ever, I have not been without a GS in 52 years.
