    I used to deliver out in Amish areas. Dirty dirty people who tread dogs very badly. I don't appreciate Amish people at all.

    Treat dogs badly? You must of been around a bad family or sect. I will never worry about an Amish dog biting. All very well behaved.

    As for dirty. Yeah there's a reason for that. They only bathe once a week and it's the same bath water for the whole family. Oldest first youngest last. I had a friend with a farm that had Amish workers help out. They always showered before they left. They knew they stunk and hated it.

    Most of the big puppy mills around here are run by Amish and they do treat animals badly. They think of all of their animals as property to be used. Dogs, horses, and everything else. They are very cruel to animals.

    My experience is they are good Christian people. Live a simple life free from worldly temptations. Of course, the devil also works his evil.

    They are basically very good people but not when it relates to animals which they believe are just to be used.

    One of my rescued dogs (Cooper) came from an Amish puppy mill. He was a stud pup who only lived in a cage his WHOLE life. Nails as long as can be and scared to death of people especially men. It's taken a lot of work to bring him around. The dog rescues that my wife help out think the Amish should be punished for how they treat there dogs.

    Wow if they run puppy mills by you I agree. Around here I've never seen a puppy mill at an Amish house and I live in the state that is deemed puppy mill capital of USA.

    We can all agree to disagree, but the Amish in the community I dealt with were just as clean, if not cleaner than any "English" farmer in the same area. And they treated their animals just as well if not better.

    And no puppy mills.

    The Amish I used to deliver to lived on a reservation, their houses and property are immaculate. Although this community started in the mid 90's. they are the cleanest and build the best quality I've ever seen.

    I agree. Have we had lots of complaints about derailed threads lately?

    It's been so bad that Cheryl even gave us a Derail Button!

    Will that go on my negative or positive side for my points?

    Because depending on the thread derailing it could be a positive or negative.
