Consumer Complaints and Reviews
I was looking for a small toy Pekingese. I explained to Kathy at Perfect Peks Kennel that I'm not physically able to handle a dog larger than 10 pounds. She told me that she specializes in small & toy dogs. Well, at 9 months old my puppy is much larger than AKC standards and came with an enormous amount of medical issues. I received a puppy with kennel cough and chronic diarrhea, which turned out to be parasites in his intestines. Both are very extremely contagious and caused big problems, as I have two other dogs at home.
Currently, my puppy has genetic allergies to almost everything! It's been a daily challenge to keep him comfortable. My plans to breed the pup to my female were smashed. This dog is not fit to sire. I just can't breed these defects into future generations and of course I've never received the AKC papers. O did I mention that? I've called and e-mailed Kathy many times asking for the AKC registration papers and have still NOT received them. So, I contacted the American Kennel Club and they had no record of his birth. She never registered the litter. Dealing with Perfect Peks Kennel has been a nightmare! I wish someone had told me.
Went to Puppy Heaven. Chose a maltese 11 weeks old. Told he had two da2pp and dewormer treatments. Purchased him. Took him in immediately to vet for vet check. Found out he has the worst worms ever and infection in eyes, nose, lungs so we treated him. Called puppy heaven to let them know. Very rude people. Anyhow treatment didn't work. He's losing weight. Hair not good. Started second treatment. We'll see what happens. I called lee at puppy heaven again. Told her all about it and shes just rude. Won't do anything. I told her "at least clean your facility better." DO NOT BUY PUPPIES FROM THIS PLACE.
I inquired about a specific teacup Shih tzu with Melissa ** from Posh Teacup Shih Tzus and she informed me they were $500.00 each and she was heading to England for Biblical study and needed to move puppies. Western Union was the only way to pay. Dog was to fly from Texas to Washington state, then to me in NY. When the puppy supposedly arrived in Washington, I was emailed a message that I had to pay $2500.00 for a climate controlled crate. I also noticed the airplane itinerary from WestJet Pets was lacking air flight information, I started making calls and was informed it was all a scam. People beware, do not deal with these people. This is their Web link. http://www.poshteacupshihtzus.com/mobile/. I have a friend trying to purchase the same dog now, and they sent her the very same email.
We replied to ad for tea cup shih tzu puppies. Found one we liked, was asked to wire $500 plus $50 for airfare with WestJet Pet Movers. We live in GA. Puppy was shipped from Dallas Ft. Worth airport and was told plane was to go to Seattle Washington first then to Atlanta. Was e-mailed from Seattle-Tacoma airport. Vet had checked and puppy had to have climate controlled pet crate to continue flight. Was asking to wire $2150.00, refundable when pet was del to my door. Needless to say all was a scam. I lost $550.00. Website is: Quality TEA CUP SHIH TZU Puppies http://www.deluxeteacupshihtzus.com.
I went onto Craigslist yesterday and sent my name and phone number to an unnamed person who was made aware of my financial situation. He must have agreed to it because today he tried to call me but I couldn't understand what he was saying so I hung up. Two minutes later he sent me a text message asking if I wanted a male or female Pomeranian. He then told me that he and his wife were "unregistered breeders" and that he was from Wilmington, Delaware. He asked me to send $125 to him and he would fly the puppy to me. He wouldn't give a guarantee of any kind that he would not take my money and not send me the Pomeranian puppy. This smells like a scam to me. I told him that I was going to review him on Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter and G+ - which I did (except for Craigslist because there's no option to report him; and all I have is his phone number) and his reply sounded like a threat. How do I report him on Craigslist?

The name of the place I was going to buy from is "termitepomeranians.net." The seller's first name is "Garrey." We spoke with him for a few days and decided to purchase a Pomeranian puppy. He requested we send the money via Western Union. My Husband went to Western Union to send the money and I couldn't believe what the lady there told him. She said she went to the same website and purchased a puppy. She sent $1500.00 to this guy Garrey and could never contact him again. His email address had been closed and after waiting over 3 months she had never received her puppy!
She advised my husband to NEVER buy a dog if you couldn't go to their home and pick it up as she had two friends that had purchased a puppy by sending their money and NEVER receiving the puppy. The two friends used two different sellers and both never received their puppy. Please be very careful about buying a puppy online because you may be out the money and never receive the dog. You will probably see this puppy on other sites as the dishonest ones always steal their images.
Search Bowpup or MS Puppy Connection or Ashley **. She goes by many different names and changes her business name quite often to try and hide from pissed customers. This woman is a scammer and if you wire money, you will never get them back or receive what was promised to you.
Linda ** sold me a Havanese dog 11 months old. After she received my money, she was very short and curt when I asked questions and did not want to be bothered. I was flying from Tennessee to Washington State to pick up the dog and the ticket was 800 dollars. I called her to confirm if she had been to the vet to check the patellas as we had agreed upon making the deal and she started screaming at me that she did not have time to be bothered with phone calls! I was leaving in 36 hours to go pick him up and needed to know if his Patellas passed the test before flying cross country. She never did get them tested, but I wanted him so bad I flew to Washington anyway. We spoke when I arrived and set a time to meet at the airport the next morning before my flight.
In the morning I found an email that she was coming later and also telling me in one sentence when hsi puppy shots were 8 months ago. I called but she did not answer. Left a very business like message asking to please meet me at the appointed time so I had time to pick up a ticket for the dog and get thru security. She had changed the time allowing me only 35 minutes to do all that and board the plane! I also asked if she had other records for the dog. No answer. So I went to the airport and waited for her and waited and waited. She would not answer the phone and finally I checked my email only to find an email that she did not like being told what to do and she was not bringing the puppy!! I had flown across the country (11 hours of travel).
She had not told me in the two weeks since I paid her that she had no health records for this 11-month-old dog. She did not do the test we agreed upon when I purchased him. She changed the time to meet not allowing me enough time to board my flight and now she decided she was not bringing him at all. I got my money back from PayPal, but I'm out nearly $1000 in travel expenses and came home with no dog. Beware of doing business with this place. It would be regrettable!
I bought a puppy from Michelle at Adorablebulldogs.com in April 2016. The pup was sent to me really sick. Took her to my vet within the two days to make guarantee good. Zoey was on meds for over 2 weeks. Then found out she had to have emergency eye surgery due to her about to rupture. Michelle told me she would help with the bills and help pay for her surgery. She never did. Contacted her several times about the situation. Was also told I would not be able to get my full rights to my female. Stated she has the right as a breeder to pick who she wants to let have papers! It is now August and Michelle has blocked me on Facebook from her page English Bulldog Puppies for sale. She refuses to speak to me by phone.
When I went on her page and tried to warn people about her, she contacts me thru texting and tells me she would of gave me another puppy at no cost! Which is a lie. She is very unprofessional and very rude. Lies to every one of her customers who have issues. Which she says is only 1% of her customers. I have come to realize that she has a whole lot of unhappy customers. She sells sick pups, she won't give papers to females unless she says so, she is not selling full blooded English Bulldogs. People have spent 7000.00 for an English and have gotten an American and an Olde Bulldog!! She is a complete rip-off!! She needs to be stopped.
We just had to put down our pomchi due to her short 6 year life span with seizures. She was my companion and my baby. Our family was devastated when she went into a seizure and never came out of it. My sweet husband, after dealing with our kids hysterically sobbing about our dog's death, decided to surprise us with a new teacup maltese from Georgeteacupmaltesepuppies.com. He paid the $750 (normal price was $1500 but of course they were running a special) through MoneyGram since their "credit card machine was hacked". The seller provided what looked to be a legit tracking number and said the puppy "Susie" was on her way to us.
The next day, my husband got an email from pawsinterhomedelivery.com the "transport company" stating the puppy was being held in an Ohio Pet Control on a vaccination quarantine and they needed an additional $2500 to get her out of quarantine and on her way to us. The breeder was supposedly located in Charlotte, NC. The website of the breeder stated that the puppies come with a health guarantee so of course we contacted him and told him it should be paid by him since he had the guarantee. He refused and basically begged us to "get the money together and make sacrifices" to get this "baby" to us. After we refused, because who has $2500 for a vaccination laying around, we haven't heard back from him.
Once we realized it was a scam, that same day, we had our friends and family inquire about the same puppy "Susie" and each time, he stated she was available. Even after my husband paid for her the previous day. The phone number area code for the breeder goes to a California number (although the website says they're in North Carolina) but when it is called it plays a message from "text me" then he texts back from a different number. The same thing happens when contacting the shipping company only that number is an Ohio area code. Upon doing further research, they also have a twin website with the same address and phone number for pomeranians (darlingpomeranians.com) and several eBay posts for yorkies.
My boyfriend and I bought an 8 week old mini shih tzu from Ms. **. From the first day we had her, she would yelp and cry when you'd touch her head. She also bobbed her head like a bobble head doll. She would go to a dark corner and prop her head up against the wall. She didn't eat like a typical puppy ate. The next two days we had her this all became increasingly severe. She was crying in pain whenever she moved. I took her to the vet who did an exam and determined she had some neurological damage and/or brain swelling. An MRI was needed to determine exactly what was wrong. It was heartbreaking to see the puppy cry in pain all the time. We were planning on returning her to Ms. ** in two days' time but were advised by the vet to euthanize her because she likely would not make it through the next few days. We don't know if there was any inbreeding going on, but this was an incredibly horrible, traumatic experience.
When we communicated to Ms. ** that we euthanized our puppy, she responded that the agreement was that we would return her, and if she needed, Ms. ** would take her to the vet. It seemed she was annoyed with our decision. I feel that if she had the puppy's best interests at heart, she would have expressed some modicum of remorse. Our experience is likely not typical of experiences people have with this lady in regards to her dog breeding, but it was a horrible experience nonetheless.
And after many texts back and forth between us, she said that if I wanted the dog I could have for half of the money and she would deal with puppy finder her self. So I agreed to buy and at the same day she drove to my house to deliver the puppy.
I received an adorable small puppy, and he was supposed to stay small like 2 to 3 pounds, but he started to grow and gain weight although I fed him the right amount, soon he reached 7 pounds.I called her and she did not answer my calls, my texts and emails. I just wanted to know his real age, and I told her that I did not care if he was a teacup or not, because after I read what breeders do do achieve teacups, I was terrified.
He is now one year and he is a beautiful healthy dog, and I love him. My only issue is, that she lied, she refused to talk with me, and she cannot be trusted. I was going to pay $3000, and I end up paying $1500, but what if the deal with puppy find went through? I would have paid $3000 for an fake tea cup.
She has no shame to lie to people. Selling an normal size Maltese for a Teacup. To consider an teacup, puppies should not go over 4 pounds. Today he is a beautiful 9 pounds dog and I love him.
I fell in love with one of their Yorkie and I fell for their scam. I was asked to pay for my pet by instant cash from Western Union (should have known there!). We emailed back and forth as Emma gained my trust with blessing from God and Bible Verses. When it was time for her to ship my puppy I was contacted by the ** and was notified that in order for my puppy to get shipped they needed an additional $760!! To complete shipping and of course they wanted it in cash from Western Union! Because their other form of payments were not working at the time! I knew it then I had been had! They might have got my $ for the puppy but at least no more. THIS IS A 100% SCAM!! You have been warned!
Christina **: Christina **. Sacramento, Ca. She a very dishonest, money hungry. wanna be breeder that is really just a backyard pad her pockets breeder. Tells you a price for a Full Registration Dog and takes your deposit without giving you a contract and then increases the price a week before pick up. Does not honor the price she gives and then acknowledges the conversation but claims to using a different Stud so it costs more but neglects to tell you this before you make a deposit. Then asks why you don't just pay the extra money as you can make $5-10k per litter. Making it about money instead of saying they are quality pups, then says she is a single mom with no job...
She is just using breeding as a job to pad her pockets. She is very wishy washy. going back and forth how she never knew the dog was for breeding, when she acknowledged the conversation and then gave me a price. She refused to give back the deposit when I didn't sign a contract and she didn't specify when she gave me her address to send the deposit it was non refundable. Her website says nothing also.
In this case non refundable or not, it is her mistake that I passed on the puppy. She agreed to a Full Registration Yellow Labrador Puppy and only wanted to give a Limited Registration Yellow Labrador Puppy. She makes all kinds of excuses and I don't want to see others Stud their dogs to her for her profit or get ripped off by her. I have emails to prove these facts, I would never degrade someone without proof... Backyard, wishy washy, dishonest. Money hungry, wanna be breeder...
Very pleasant to deal with BEFORE you purchase a pup, not so much after the fact. We bought a pup that looked nothing like their pics. The pup was too terrified to step outside even though we worked with him. He was a bitter, and had giardia, parasites and ended up twice the size we were led to expect. We had to rehome him with a rescuer, and lost about $3000. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of Purebred Breeders.
I bought a puppy off of puppyfinders.com from TemplarGiants.com and was shipped to me sick with hookworms and diarrheaing everywhere. Puppy was suppose to be AKC registered and he is not. I paid extra for puppy to have full registration and found out he's not even registered. Cindy ** advertised puppy is AKC registered and at the time of his delivery to me, Cindy ** stated that she would send me his AKC registration papers when she receives the extra money for full registration.
Make a long story short , TemplarGiants -AKA- Cindy ** now states that the puppy can't be registered due to no fault of hers and for me to read my contract - NO REFUNDS!!! Say what - she broke her own contract and now is trying to say she is just a hobbyist. BS!!! You took my money like a pro and now you're ducking me. GIVE ME BACK MY MONEY CROOK!!! I'm still bringing puppy to vet for rash he came to me with. This Cindy ** thinks I'm not going to do anything but legal actions are already in motion. Do not do business with this Crook!!!
We purchased a puppy from Nancy **, who claims she is a breeder. Our dog was at the vet 3 times within the first 2 weeks of us bringing him home. We received a Veterinary Certification of Unfitness from the vet. We elected to keep our dog and to continue to care for him so he gets well. He was diagnosed with coccidia, chronic gastroenteritis other intestinal parasites. We contacted Mrs. ** and made a good faith effort to resolve this issue with her. She has not complied with the regulations placed by the Dept. of Internal Affairs. We are informing you so you are aware of the issues involved with this "breeder".
BEWARE of this puppy shop - they are NOT a breeder! We purchased a GoldenDoodle in January, and he was sick since the minute we went home. We took him to the vet the next day and they determined he had an ear infection and worms. After many trips back-and-forth to the vet, they tested him positive for acute giardia. I have been in contact with Piper since the first vet visit - and they take no accountability. DO NOT believe their health guarantee. DO NOT trust these people. There is a reason they are unable to tell you about the puppies parents - and their vet! GO ELSEWHERE for your next puppy!
I contracted for a puppy from Kika's Klee Kai (KKK) in 2014. I sent the puppy back due to personal circumstances. I received only $500 of the purchase price back, meaning KKK kept both the dog and most of my money - outright theft, in my opinion. I just want to warn others that this is how KKK will act if given the opportunity. Unprofessional and, quite frankly, tacky, despicable, and classless.
Lisa ** was very difficult to work with. We put a $100 deposit down on a Scottie puppy July 2015 that would be born in the Fall. I sent the deposit and asked Lisa to stay in touch with me as this was very exciting for my husband and I. She finally informed me that the litter was born in late October. I replied back (all communication was via email) and asked how many in the litter, since I was the 1st to give a deposit, do we get our pick, etc. I was also very patient waiting for pictures of the puppies. Lisa never answered my questions and said she had to wait until the puppies were 4 weeks due to risk of eye damage, which is fair. I waited 4 weeks, Thanksgiving was approaching. Asked for pictures of the puppies to share with our family on Thanksgiving, never sent. After multiple email request she finally sent 2 blurry pictures of 1 Scottish Terrier puppy the first week of December.
I follow a lot of breeders on Facebook and online, they typically post pictures of the entire litter. Communication started to fall off. I finally found a phone number online for Lisa. Had our first phone call, she said the puppies will be ready around Christmas time or early January depending on when she felt they were ready. Again, I thought that was fair. I told her we would love to get our Scottie for Christmas but if not, that's ok. We can wait until early January. Lisa said she really wanted us to have our Scottie puppy for Christmas so that's what we agreed on. We live in NY, she is in OH (supposedly), so we had to pick a date to make travel/hotel arrangements. After travel arrangements were made, Lisa was very hard to get a hold of. She was busy with multiple excuses on why each day of the week would not work for her.
We agreed on the weekend before Christmas, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, all of a sudden she was busy from sun up to sun down. I started to question her credibility and everything seemed to be off since the very beginning. When I asked her common questions anyone should be able to ask a breeder at any point, Lisa became really offended and said I was accusing her of being a puppy mill and that she would not sell one of her puppies to us. After lots of back and forth my husband and I decided that it was not worth the risk although we were heartbroken that we wouldn't get our Scottie puppy for Christmas. Upset at all of the time wasted since July. We waited and waited for our $100 deposit to be credited back as Lisa promised, luckily I used a credit card and I had it disputed. Only advertised on puppy.com and her website is very outdated. All red flags.
If you're looking to get a Scottish Terrier, I HIGHLY recommend working with a reputable breeder part of the Scottish Terrier Club of America or one of the child organizations. They sign a code of ethics and are very credible. We purchased from a Breeder part of the STCA in MI and brought home our perfect Scottie puppy this past January. He's 6 months old now and is perfect!
I contacted Blue Heaven Maltese hoping to purchase a puppy. However every question I asked made me more and more leery. Each puppy was going to be $500. The shipping (flight and delivery to my home) was free. They will only take a moneygram or western union payment. So I was to send it and hope I got my puppy. I asked for references and contact information for their veterinarian. He gave me neither. Their online profile says they have been doing this since 1992. In texts when I asked how long they had been doing this he wrote 2 years. I checked their site. It was started 3/21/2016. Due to my concerns my son called as another buyer. They assured him the same dog that I was purchasing. He said he had someone who lived in Maryland and he wanted their address so they could come by and see the puppies. They hung up on him. PLEASE BEWARE OF BLUE HEAVEN MALTESE - bluehavenmaltese.com.
^Do not get a puppy from this breeder^!!! I would give my review 0 stars if I could. I ^bought a puppy from Kaylan ** in Oct 2015 and the puppy was sick for 3.5 months afterwards. She tested positive for multiple intestinal bacterial infections, giardia and clostridium, the day after we ^brought her home. After multiple exchanges of emails with the breeder she offered to take the puppy back. ^There's no way I'd ever send my puppy back to this breeder. Obviously the environmental conditions ^were sub par. Kaylan accused my husband and I of stressing the puppy, thus causing the resistant intestinal bacterial infections.
We both work in medicine and are very aware of how these two bacterium are transmitted and stress is not one of them. Our puppy is beyond spoiled and extremely well taken care of. Stress does not cause giardia and clostridium infections, but I guess someone who's ignorant in understanding these bacterium would ^say such things. Dog breeders should be very aware of these potentially fatal conditions. She also had her father call us and offered to "take the puppy back for a few days so that she could see her mommy because she may just be homesick." This was 6 weeks after bringing her home. Any intelligent, respectable breeder, who understands canine behavior at all knows that after 6 weeks the puppy is no longer "homesick."
After doing some research, I have learned that the mother of my puppy has had 3 litters of puppies in a year. This is a money making, backyard, puppy mill. They ^do not raise healthy, happy, puppies as advertised. I also find it a little fishy that the website is listed under hyattsgoldens.com and ^their Facebook page is listed as Oak Hill Golden Retrievers. Please save yourself the heartache and financial strains of getting a very sick puppy from this breeder. I love my dog very much and am thankful that I rescued her from this family. They are awful breeders and ^their licensing should be taken away. A complaint has been filed against them in hopes that it will prevent this happening to anyone else in the future.
Hollywood puppies - I purchased the dog, a Chihuahua, from May and staff on 7/10/2015. The dog was tiny and very skinny. The dog would not eat dog food and I ask May what could be the problem and she responded by saying she had been feeding the dog a puppy 1 grilled chicken patty every day!!! Finally the dog was able to keep Blue Buffalo down and would eat. The dog developed C diff and was diagnosed with a heart murmur grade 3. May ignored my calls, sold the store and the new owner says it's my problem! I told her no and she said "We are now Hollywood Puppies Boutique. She being May was Hollywood Puppies Inc!" I am disabled on a low income and now my poor dog is sick and this May is still selling and breeding dogs! Beware of this new owner. Also they wouldn't offer her new number or any money back. They simply laughed it off! Buyer beware.
The summer of 2015 I had suddenly lost my teacup Pomeranian (purchased from someone else). I was absolutely devastated and wanted to the void immediately! This is when I stumbled across Ashley! I knew in my stomach I should she stuck with my original breeder, but she didn't have any puppies available right then.
Just like the rest of the people who have been scammed by Ashley, I deposited 1000$ on a tea cup Pom that all of a sudden fell sick and wasn't available. Unfortunately for myself I am Canadian therefore it wasn't just 1000$ it was more like 1350$ with the conversion. When Ashley had emailed me to let me know that the dog I wanted wasn't available, I explained to her that nowhere on her website states that if she can't provide the dog that your money won't be refunded. Of course she didn't care. NON REFUNDABLE is all she said.
If you read Ashley's reviews one of the ladies has her email, so I decided to contact her. This lady was kind enough to tell me to stay away!! She had purchased a teacup Pom from Ashley and it turned out horrible. Just like other's hers was really sick and in the end had to be put down. Lastly, the lady who replied to my email exploded that Ashley tricked her into writing the review on her page and refused to take it down.
WARNING!! This lady is CRIMINAL!! She has a young daughter, she's even young herself. I don't know how she lives with herself ripping people Off?? In the end I was able to get another puppy from my original breeder. Thankfully we have a beautiful new baby girl we love so much!! If any of you actually want a good breeder please feel free to contact me at **. I hope people read these and stay away from Ashley!! This lady is a crock and deserves nothing but the worst!
I recently went online to buy a puppy to replace my husband's beloved 14-year-old teacup Chihuahua named Tiny. In doing so, I came across **. We found a puppy that we absolutely loved on this site and called the number listed 888.743.0325. It was answered by a lady named Tracy ** confessing that she was covering for her friend Ashley **, was out of town for the Valentine's Day weekend. Tracy told me that she lived in Chino and her friend Ashley lives in Texas. I was told that they were both breeders, and this particular puppy was so special that Ashley actually wanted to keep this puppy for herself, but she is pregnant and expecting in May so choosing to let it go to a happy home. With this information, we moved forward and put a non-refundable 1k deposit down on this puppy.
When we got home that night we looked at the contract that Tracy then sent, only to realize that this puppy was not in fact from Texas, but rather being imported from South Korea. Further, to our dismay, they were requesting copies of our photo ID, SS#, address and banking info. We did a quick Google search for boutique teacup puppies review only to find 87 harsh, heartbreaking complaints on www.consumeraffairs.com, and several more on other accredited websites such as: ** etc. In short, Ashley ** and her accomplice Traci ** are crooks, liars and thieves.
Each review tells a heartbreaking tale of similar experiences with these ladies. Buyers put a non-refundable 1k down payment down on a dog and then it suddenly becomes sick, or even dies and they can not fulfill the order. Buyers are forced to either lose their deposited or choose from another dog. Buyers receive a dog that is different than that of the one they ordered and sellers refuse to reimburse/return. Buyers are told one story about a dog which is what happened to us and then they come to find out that the dog is in fact different than what was described. With all due respect, please note that these dogs are priced from $2,500.00- $25,000.00.
These modern day bandits are literally lying, cheating and stealing from honest, hardworking Americans and worst, they are encouraging the breeding of sick babies who have a greater chance of death than life. I was told that Ashley and this puppy is located in San Antonio, Texas however the contracts show that her LLC is out of Las Vegas, Nevada and the Power of Attorney states they are a CA Corporation. Other addresses for them pop up in Florida as well. As so many other people have stated about The Puppy Boutique. Why has the government not put them out of business!!! BUYERS BEWARE!!!
My husband and I bought an english bulldog from george and kimberely ** of www.ultimatebulldogs.com. We did so from his website and because American kennel association awarded him to the bulldog hall of fame and breeder of merit award. And we could not find complaints on the internet. Our puppy was photographed from one side and we were not told that she had one blue eye and one brown eye. Kimberly ** assured my husband steve that the one blue eye meant nothing. Not to be concerned. Because their website talked only of their puppies being bred and raised in their home. My husband and I had no idea that the breeder, george ** , does not raise all of the puppies he sells.
Several puppies are raised by purchasers from the website. The buyer becomes a co owner pays around 3200. For a female then has to breed enough liters to successively give george ** two puppies for george to sell on his website or through sites like puppyfind. We found this all out after buying a female from him. And several purchasers signed a contract stating that any complaint anywhere would result in a 10,000.00 fine from george **. Please advise me if any of this is something you know about. Good or bad. We are so very concerned. Our girl passed on the merle gene. We found out from a vet that it can cause blindness. Please contact me.
Please beware as I tried everything possible to please this seller. It can't be done and she will not sell an adorable puppy she posted for sale on puppyfinder.com as she insist on western union wire transfer and expense to fly the puppy. Will not provide any information such as her address and when you finally get a phone number she will not talk as she says she's hearing impaired. I even offered to make the drive to North Carolina where she says she lives to pay her and pick up the puppy and she said she wouldn't allow the puppy named Tia to ride back in a motor home due to stress.
This picture is of a precious white and cream colored Shih Tzu puppy but mostly white. My friend also offered since she was in her area on vacation, to help with it and meet her with money in hand $500.00 and of course airfare for Tia to fly to my nearest airport. That wasn't good enough either. Had to be a wire transfer or deposit into her friend's account and the friend would give her the money. It all speaks for itself. The site has banned her but people beware. She goes by Debra **. I'm not finished with this. I'm turning over all information I have, emails, text, etc. to proper authorities. She first wanted the money sent to her by western union and it was Debra **, West Memphis Arkansas. So be careful.
I purchased a puppy from Adorablebulldogs.com. I paid a lot of money to have her to show. I paid through Paypal with a additional $500.00 paid for AKC paperwork. My bulldog was so gorgeous - all white with a blue eye and a gold eye and was miniature in size. At 5 mos old I went to wake her up and she was dead. I rushed her to the Vet and notified Adorable Bulldog owner. We did as was requested and had a autopsy done at a cost of $1000.00 thru the U of I in Champaign IL. It came back that she had congenitally small kidneys which caused a whole system fail of heart and lungs. She died of renal failure and congestive heart failure.
I was devastated. Heartbroken and so sad. The breeder said she would replace like kind if we could wait... It is now a year and a half later. She won't replace or refund which her contract says she would. Her best deal is to give me a small monthly payment over two yrs -- no refund on the autopsy or akc. No new puppy. I don't know what to do.
PLEASE BEWARE!! I have a toy Aussie from Kim who developed stage 3-4 patellar luxation at 8 months of age. She did not have any kind of injury. My vet diagnosed this and provided Kim with documentation. This condition is genetic and often within 6 months the other leg will go. The surgical correction which is necessary at this stage is $3100 plus $400 for exam and x-rays with 8-12 weeks of recovery necessary. Double that if the other knee goes. Kim said her knee probably went since she was so little. And yet the smaller the dog, the more she charges!
A vet can diagnose this without x-rays by exam, especially when it's as bad as my puppy. Look it up. Kim refused a refund when I said I would return the puppy and refused to provide a comparable puppy. I have a small blue Merle girl with blue eyes. She would give a blue Merle girl SOMETIME with no guarantee on eye color and no health guarantee at all. Kim said she shouldn't do ANYTHING since I wasn't giving the puppy Nu-Vet vitamins which her contract calls for and she would receive a commission on. My vet did not believe these vitamins are necessary. This clause in her contract is unethical and probably illegal. PLEASE THINK TWICE so you don't have the heartache, I do! There are lots of good toy Aussie breeders elsewhere.
