Bulldog Ravine — Selling sick puppies!
We purchased one of the beautiful puppies (Crystal) that we saw on an email just like the one below that we all received. The day after we picked up our puppy we noticed it had a severe cough, and took it to the vet for a check up. We were told by the vet that she had a serious upper respiratory infection that turned into pneumonia. When we contacted Bulldog Ravine to tell them that the dog was sick and to see if they would help with the vet bills ($1500.00 to date and the infection is still not cured) they refused and said they don’t cover that in their “contract”. They have tried to bully (no pun intended) us into accepting their terms (they have offered $400.00) and keep referring to their “contract”, which we have been informed by our counsel is as good as the paper it is written on since it contradicts the law.
When we asked for the registration papers for our puppy, the breeder is saying that the puppy cannot be registered and that it was sold as a “pet”. We were never told that it couldn’t be registered and in fact they told us that we should receive the papers in about 60 days when we picked her up.
To make a long story short Lola now a year and 8 months has a list of genetic defects and I have spent over $5000.00 for her medical care. Lola (Crystal) has a elongated pallet, her patella (knee pops out of place) inverted eye lashes, cherry eye and a list of skin issues. We are not the only victims of this so called breeder, I have investigated and fought tooth and nail for Lola (Crystal) and what I believe in and I have found 4 other victims of this breeder! I know that there is so much more puppies that are sick that this breeder has sold and I will not stop until they stop selling these sick puppies!!!
We just want to warn anyone that is thinking of purchasing a bulldog from any breeder to do their homework and get educated on the process of purchasing a puppy and what to look for in a reputable breeder. If we would have read everything we have read in the past year before making our purchase we would have never purchased from this breeder. We love our puppy very much and have suffered seeing her be so sick and we just want to make sure no one else suffers so much.
If anyone needs any information or links to where we found our info please feel free to contact us.
