I never received promised papers

I purchased a border collie from Monica. I paid an extra $100.00 for papers. She told lie after lie and kept me on a trail for months continuing to promise the papers and blaming the stud owner for the hold up. One of her emails even said "I have the papers, what is your address so I can mail them to you." She would never give me the stud owners info. but after several months I finally convinced her to. When I contacted the stud owner I got a whole different story. Monica did not keep up her end of the agreement and knew all along there would be no papers. The stud owner said Monica scribbled all over the application like a child. DO NOT BUY A DOG FROM MONICA!

I am adding support to this prior post. Monica also has constructed a very "slick" false identity of name dropping, false dog titles, as well as using other people's dog pictures to claim dogs as hers. She is not on a flyball team, she did not compete (nor travel to) Europe to do agility. What she does is default individuals out of stuff (team items) to further construct the pretense of these activities & credentials. When one breed group becomes aware of her MO, she hops to another breed. This is absolutely accurate and is substantiated by others of excellent reputation and esteem in the dog community.

This person is very believable. She is very intelligent and well spoken.

But she is evil to the core.



If lucky the breeder gets the dog back. Otherwise the dogs end up dead.


has anyone sold her a dog, and also what was the outcome of the dog that was sold to her.

what breeds and what does any one know about this girl. locally and elsewhere



She had a border collie puppy from a friend of mine and it died within a few months...she left it unattended outside in freezing weather (young, skinny, smooth coated BC) with her other dogs for several hours. She found it curled up in a "doghouse" when she got back. The necropsy showed that the puppy was attacked then went into shock and died of hypothermia.


She had an Austalian Shepherd that was taken back from her by the breeder. The dog was in very poor condition and malnorished, etc.

She moved on to a GSD puppy, which now has seemingly disapeared. From her own facebook, she is on the prowl for another Aussie pup. She is on several DNA border collie rescue lists.

Please do NOT sell or even give her a puppy/dog. She is evil to the core, tells a very believable sob story.

Monica Zanetti Pitbull GSD

Breeders Beware DO NOT SELL TO MONICA Zanetti of BattleCreek Mich Or Collin Whitifield. Monica feeds people sob stories to get them to feel sorry for her. Takes dogs with the promise to pay NEVER follows threw. It has happened more than once more than twice. Please don't sell your dogs to Them if you want them to be happy and healthy and live long beautiful lives. It's to late for my dogs but its not to late for your. Mulit cases of dogs dying, disappearing unaccounted for. this is not isolated case I have now done my home work have you? Her blogs/websites are LIES! Do your research.
