A lot of people use Sharpies to colour in bad spots on the pigment and some use products designed specifically to colour noses. I had the pleasure when showing my boy of watching two judges from Equador specifically rub dog's noses, then wipe their hand on their light coloured pant leg to verify that noses were not being coloured for the ring.

Any of the things you have mentioned is shameful. But there is a big difference in a breeder being quite forthcoming about having allowed their stud to produce a Doodle litter and another claiming everything they do is perfect and every pup they produce perfect.
I don't know. I think I'd put the former (allowing their stud to produce a Doodle litter) as very nearly equal with the latter...

This might be a good starting point for some fact-finding. Before I personally could form any opinion about one breeder decrying an unnamed other, I too would need to know more verifiable information. Such as the name of the breeder and the source of the photos (photo-shopping is so ubiquitous today it's almost hard to believe one's eyes!). It would seem from the OP's repeat use of the word "greeder" (which I first thought to be a typo), her regard for the unnamed breeder is lower than sea level.
Do you really want to know who the breeder is? The pictures come from the greeders own facebook and the greeder posted these pictures. I posted these pictures to educate.
My regard for this asshat is much lower than sea level as I find painting/dying a small puppies pigment with no thought as to the lifelong consequences to the animal about equal, in my opinion, to that of a child abuser or a paedophile.

I pretty much agree that you should never, ever, accuse someone of wrong doing without REAL proof as these days photos can be deceptive to the eye.
I don't care much for people who breed 'designer dogs' of any type. They only contribute to the many animals that are euthanized before they are rescued by the rest of us.....And now that I know the meaning of 'sharpie black', I wonder how many people are being decieved by pure breed breeders? Are ethics and Honesty becoming a thing of the past?
It saddens me................................
I think Rayah's post was meant to educate and not naming the breeder was probably the right thing to do here. A puppy is unidentifiable this way. He CLEARLY looks inked to me. Almost all puppies that age, even those with correct points, have some pale color still showing on the lips or nose. The color develops as they age a few weeks.
