Bruiser Labradors of Queen Creek — Parvo positive puppies being sold
Tom Nicolaus the co-owner of Bruiser Labradors sold us a Parvo positive sick puppy. To date, there is at least 2 dead puppies from this litter, probably more including two he was holding longer for 2 clients. He first told us ours needed another week because they had diarrhea but then emailed us to pick them up ahead of schedule. Any vet or breeder that has any morals or experience knows that the first thing to consider is a parasite problem. When we arrived to pick up our puppy there was still obvious signs of diarrhea. Our vet believes he knew they were not well and figured he would get "rid" of them instead of losing the whole litter and his $800.00 fee per puppy. Our puppy was seemed tired and lethargic for the first 2 days so we rushed it to the vet and found a large amount of coccidia and a elevated temperature. After the puppy did not get better from the medicine we were given, we had to take the puppy back to the vet the next day and it tested + for Parvo. Called Tom, no response, emailed Tom, no response- finally he did respond by blaming it on a dust storm even birds dropping the virus in our yard-though the incubation time line per our vet placed the puppy still in his care. Our puppy is extremely sick, we have huge vet bills and he said he would finally issue a refund but betting he will not comply- so legal action will surely be our next move. He has another litter due July 22 2014 and had this dog at the same Parvo infected facility. IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUYING A PUPPY FROM THIS BREEDER BEWARE, GET A PARVO TEST BEFORE YOU HAND OVER MONEY TO THIS IRRESPONSIBLE, INHUMANE, GREEDY TERD.
