I recently bought a pup whom I foolishly took home without the paperwork. I trusted Top Dogg Giant Schnauzers. 2 months later after asking I get the paperwork. To my surprise the AKC Litter Certificates says my pups parents AND the grandparents were brother and sister from same litter. Upon contacting AKC they said they do not have a policy on "inbreeding". They leave that up to the discretion of the breeders. Really! Doesn't that increase the chances of the pups from such a litter being genetic cesspools? Buy a pup from a breeder that has a "Genetic" and "Health" guarantee.
I purchased a purebred World class imported German Shepherd pedigree puppy from https://**/. I paid $3000 dollars in total. When I asked for my AKC papers, I was ignored. I have every email and phone records to show how many times I tried to contact them with no reply. I finally decided to write a review that angered the wife of Jeff **, I did not run down my puppy. I just stated there was very poor communication. That same night, I was sent 3 nasty emails and bashed, bullied and degraded online. Someone reported her and her page was removed.
I have an open case at the AKC, The ** Facebook pages have been removed twice due to libel statements. Also a second time for the sales of puppies online. There is no more contact, never really was and I will not be contacting the ** ever again. I know the litter was never registered as of September 12th 2022. Any further contact will be from the AKC and my lawyer. I also filed a police report about them due to the massive slander with the West Allis, Wi police so I have a case number for that also. I never know if one of their many people they told nasty things about me will come and try to get my dog.
In the beginning I had put down four hundred dollars and have my receipt on PayPal stating I paid $2800.00 cash plus $200.00 for delivery due to my being disabled. I was asked to send my payment as a friend and was told cash upon delivery. A total of 7 people did not receive their papers from this litter and any puppies or in the past from the same dam or sire of my puppy. I hope to warn people that you don't get what you paid for. I had so many questions to ask them but will not speak to them ever again. I am 60 years old and honestly have never been treated with such disrespect in my life. My advice as someone else wrote in their review...STAY FAR AWAY from these sellers. They are not what they say they are.

I found Bel & Dean on the AKC website while searching for a Belgian Malinois and could not be happier with my experience. They have been warm and helpful at every stage of the process—from choosing my puppy to picking him up to continuing to be a resource for me after delivery. Bel checks in on us weekly to make sure my malinois is happy and healthy and even sends us update photos of his siblings. I will absolutely be working with them again in the future when I'm ready for a sibling for my young pup.
Working with Rose to find our furry, four-legged family member has been an absolute blessing! She is super friendly and helpful. I never would have imagined how overwhelming it could be to find the right frenchie for our family. Rose quickly put our worries and anxieties at ease with her vast knowledge, experience, as well as health guarantees. She is an amazing person who breeds amazing frenchies! I would highly recommend anyone interested in a French Bulldog to do themselves a favor and reach out to her.
Please don’t purchase a dog from Karen Lorenz owner of Companions From Heaven. I put a hefty deposit on a Maltese and the entire litter died. She would not refund my money! She said I could have a Bichon Frise from the next litter. I didn’t want a Bichon but agreed I would take a girl. All boys were born. She then called to say she wasn’t going to breed her 2 year old female Bichon anymore and thought that would be a good fit for us since she was trained. We agreed! When we went to pick her up, my instincts said, "No don’t take this dog" but I didn’t listen and took her anyway. Also she admitted that she left the Maltese litter in the sun too long and that’s why they died.
We got the Bichon home and she wasn’t trained at all., she would step in her own poop and lay in it! She was obviously kept in a crate and not in the breeder's home as she claimed. We sent the dog to obedience school for 6 weeks to get her potty trained. It didn’t work. We kept her for 5 months. I am still heartbroken. She is now in a good home where they can put up with that behavior. Karen Lorenz is a liar and a thief and the worst breeder! I don’t understand why she is AKC registered. Does the AKC not mean anything?
This guy is a fraud and a liar. This thief sold me two dogs with hips and elbow problems. I have been waiting for AKC for months and never got them. Don't buy from him. Don't do business with him. He is a fraud.
My family bought a Mini Wiener from this breeder. We got the wienie & then about 2 weeks into having her we noticed she was getting really skinny & sick so we took her to the vets. Turns out she has a mega esophagus, so we literally have to give her medication twice a day & feed her in a doggy high chair 3 times a day. We contacted the breeder asking for our money back, since we were sold a literal special needs dog & the vet bills have been a lot, but the breeder won’t give the money back unless we give the dog back. But if we give the dog back the breeder is going to kill it to get rid of any evidence that she’s breeding dogs together that she shouldn’t be breeding to cause this problem. Whenever originally emailed about it, the breeder’s response sounded like this wasn’t the first time it happened, & she even called the dog a faulty product.
My husband and I recently purchased a Neapolitan mastiff from Paul and Joyce **. We were very skeptical about purchasing a puppy that was over 8 hrs away and having it shipped. So many scammers these days! After a little research and a phone call we were on our way! Paul and Joyce answered any and all questions we had. We are new to the breed. They assured us of their shipping method which was nothing short of professional! The first time we spoke was a Thurs evening. We received our puppy late Monday night. They text us to keep us updated every day! Sometimes 2 or 3 times a day with pictures! We received a happy, healthy, well socialized and clearly in the process of training 13 week old male! We couldn’t be happier! Highly recommend!
PLEASE READ MYKA's STORY. Myka's story, this note is especially important to people looking for a reputable Shih Tzu breeder. Our research lead us to contact a Shih Tzu breeder in Stony Plain, Alberta Canada and on November 16, 2019 I flew to Edmonton, Alberta – close to Stony Plain – to purchase my lovely sweet 2 ½ months old Myka from “My Dream Shih Tzu” breeder Pam **. Almost a year later Myka became extremely ill and was diagnosed with a congenital liver disease, requiring urgent and life-threatening major surgery. I rushed her to the specialty veterinary hospital in Vancouver and Myka survived the surgery although even now she still suffers from medical issues.
The breeder was “devastated” with the news as there is a potential genetic problem with the dogs she breeds. I exchanged several medical reports with her. She offered a replacement puppy (when one becomes available) as per the two-year health guarantee against life threatening genetic defects clause in the sales contract. I declined as after caring and loving Myka for a year she has become part of the family and is not a commodity you return because it turned out to be defective. Had I taken her up on a replacement puppy, the breeder would have had to forego the revenue generated from the sale of that puppy. By now my vet bills have added up to $9,000 and I asked Pam ** to at least reimburse me for the purchase price of Myka. At that point all communication was blocked by Pam.
I was finally able to have a telephone conversation with her and we mutually agreed that she would reimburse me the $1,800 paid for Myka and I would sign off on the balance of the health guarantee. However.... three days later I received an email whereby she reneged on this agreement as she had offered me a replacement puppy (when available). Case closed! I will leave it up to the individual reader to form their own opinion about this unethical behavior, but must caution people when searching for a reliable Shih Tzu breeder. You know who NOT to buy from. BUYER BEWARE. Please feel free to share this far and wide.
I purchased a puppy from Darlena and Carlos **. Advertisement via AKC advertised purebred Cane Corso puppies for sale 2500. The AKC website also states comes with ICCF, AKC, Pedigree papers. I asked was the puppy mixed due to her stripe in the center of the puppy face. That marking is most common on pitbulls. I was assured the puppy I purchased was a full bred Cane Corso. I performed a DNA test on the puppy and the results came back mixed breed. Cane Corso, Mastiff, pit, Rottweiler. I reached out to the breeder. I explained the results. The breeder asked for me to email DNA. I would also like to say the DNA showed 13% inbreeding. Anything over 10% could cause health problems. It could also cause defects to the offspring.
I sent all the information to the breeder. I asked for a refund. The breeder refused to resolve the issue. Also the AKC website explains if I cannot keep the dog I can return the puppy. Also I had to pay for the pedigree via AKC however the pedigree the breeder gave me does not match what AKC gave me. Also DNA showed family history, where the mixing started. That also does not match what I have from the breeder. I called AKC, I was told to email a complaints with all evidence. After, they review everything they will contact seller and try to resolve the issue. I also have a contract I had to sign. The contracts states a Cane Corso purebred. I still need to reach out to ICCF.
