All Star Acres Old English Sheepdogs — deaf dog
I purchased a dog from Tina / All Star Acres OES and I got a puppy that was very timid and afraid. Because I couldn’t find what I was looking for in a dog anywhere else I ended up purchasing two more dogs from her that also had a lot of timid and fear issues that I had to have a lot of work done to bring them out of their fear. I spent a lot of extra money on these dogs to get breeding rights. When I went to test the girl that I had purchased I found out that she is deaf in one ear. Unfortunately, there was no way that I felt comfortable breeding her. I contacted Tina and the only thing she said she would do is possibly send me a new puppy if I sent the original dog back. The dog is extremely attached to an autistic boy and it would crush him for her to be sent back so I explained the situation to her and she refused to do anything for me unless I sent the dog back. I then contacted PayPal to see if they would refund me but they do not get involved in these types of disputes. My experience with All Star Acres has been terrible. Her lack of communication the entire time I purchased the dogs and now dealing with her is very rude. After I picked up my last dog from the airport and she never even checked to see if I had received the dog (I waited for her to contact me and she never did!). If that doesn’t say that all she cares about is the money then I don’t know what does. If you want a reputable breeder then I definitely wouldn’t purchase from All Star Acres. If she tells you that she health tests then don’t believe her as she told me she did and her dogs were health tested but then later said she would be health testing this Fall. I am very sorry that I bought from them and would encourage anyone who is looking for an OES to go somewhere else.
