Amy Herman / Amy Herman sells sick dogs.
I purchased a 1 yr old mini bantam bulldog from Amy Herman at Thunder Hollow Kennels in Tennessee over the internet. This woman took payment for the dog $1200 June 9 and I did not receive the dog until July 21, 2008. The dog arrived in Texas with serious skin diseases. She has demodex mange and also a contagious fungal infection. She said the dog had been to the vet, had shots and rabies, then would not provide any vet information or records. When I confronted her about the skin issues she lied and said the dog had hot spots and had been treated at vet. She urged me not to take dog to the vet since she just had. WHAT KIND OF RESPONSIBLE BREEDER WOULD TELL YOU NOT TO TAKE SICK DOG TO VET. The medical bills so far have been $450.00 with weekly treatment to continue and vet bills to continue. Do not buy a dog from this person. She will lie and then ignore you after you tell her about the problems. Update 10/7/2008: I found the previous owners of my dog and she confirmed my beliefs! The previous owner returned her to the breeder due to the demodex mange. This proves she lied about the dogs health condition. 12/4/08 This dog continues to be two steps forward one step back. She develops these weird sores which I need to treat and then they go away, but a new one pops up. BEWARE - several other complaints about her puppies including parvo and demodex!
