resolved to the customer's satisfaction
This Breeder sold across State lines a Giardia-infected and highly contagious stool-eating puppy that had failed to gain weight, after being born in a litter where there was litter loss, all a clear sign of medical problems that were either ignored or overlooked by this RN/breeder who frequently shows Chihuahuas in AKC shows, yet behaves as documented below. She took $1500 in payment for the non-disclosed sick, contagious, stool-eating puppy via Paypal, and then sent an "Adoption Contract" demanding the purchasers sign it AFTER they had received the infected pup. She screamed obscenities at the purchasers when they objected to being asked to sign an "Adoption Contract" for the sale of the puppy instead of a Sales Contract. The "Adoption Contract" claimed Nurse Cecilia Bozzo’s "vets" had apparently cleared the low weight, stool-eating, and infected puppy, but provided no proof of that, and the puppy was clearly documented to be infected with Giardia when the purchasers received it. No breeder support was provided to the purchasers, who instead were abused by Cecilia Bozzo with her screaming of obscenities on or about February 8, 2016. The verbally abused purchasers lacking disclosure, education, and support from breeder-RN Cecilia Bozzo therefore ignorantly failed to understand that they needed to protect their other dogs at home from contagion, plus themselves and others, from being infected with Giardia. Giardia may be transmitted to humans as well as between dogs. The purchasers' later discovered that Giardia had also infected their other dog who also began disgustingly eating stools, after it became infected from Cecilia Bozzo's pup with Giardia. The purchasers had had no idea how to disinfect their home and protect their other dogs from the infected, contagious, stool-eating puppy whose medical issues with Giardia were not disclosed when it was sold by Cecilia Bozzo. Once Giardia is spread throughout a home without disinfection and gets into a home with multiple dogs, it tends to stay - permanently. Please make your own determination about what you think of such a sad and disgusting state of affairs. Caveat emptor, and beware - all that glitters is not gold. Nurses take a Florence Nightingale Oath, and are expected to be experts in infection control in hospitals. Should this RN be able to keep her license to work in her hospital without investigation and continuing monitoring and supervision of what occurs in her Chihuahua breeding and dog showing activities that created this disgusting situation that also created a danger to public health in another state, and may be carried over into her work as a nurse in Delaware???
