[Resolved] Bernese Mountain Dogs / Horrible breeder!!
Denise bosak is the owner of this "business". She breeds bernese mountain dogs. After literally months of searching every state surrounding us for a bernese mountain dog puppy, we stumbled upon her. Now we have done a ton of research on finding reputable breeders. Denise is good at faking it. She is involved in dog shows or so it seems. From what we have s een, she only shows her other dog she breeds, Tibetan Mastiffs. First red flag right there, breeding multiple breeds. We go out to her "house" which looks more like a facility. There are rows of cages with large barking dogs everywhere. She had so many dogs I couldn't even begin to count. She brings us to look at the puppies who are kept in a tiny cold garage. She had multiple pens blocked off because that is how many Mommas she had pregnant with puppies. We ignore all the awful signs of PUPPY MILL jumping right at us and put a down payment on a puppy. Fast forward a few months. Long story short, she never told us our puppy was becoming sick not even a week before we are due to pick him up. I get a call a few days before it is time to go pick him up telling me he has suddenly died. Red flags are popping up everywhere but me being the dog lover I am, I was too emotional to see them. We were devastated. She offered our deposit back or to pick a puppy from the next litter. I told her we would probably get another puppy but that we needed to talk about it. After everyone telling us to get away from her due to her awful reputation, we decided not to get a puppy from her. From here, it was hell. She ignored phone calls, texts, messages time and time again. I couldn't believe this woman I thought was a good person was turning out to be so cruel and heartless. 4.5 months later, we finally received our money. Along the way, I was disgusted to see how she was breeding these poor puppies. Her constant excuse for not getting us the money was that she barky had enough money to feed her dogs. I could just puke knowing these dogs are in her care. She had roughly 7-8 Berners pregnant at the same time. Let alone who knows how many mastiffs. Her poor Berner mommas were putting out 10-18 puppies each, multiple puppies dying with each birth. It made me sick. I can't even imagine the life these dogs face each day, never knowing what comfort or love feels like. They are purely money to her. Some of Her Berners don't even look pure bred and she charges what REPUTABLE BREEDERS charge for carefully bred Berners. If you are looking for a bernese mountain dog, please do more research and stay far from this woman. It is women like her who are single handedly ruining this beautiful breed.
I am going to resolve this complaint because I did receive the money in mid January. She did follow through with her word of paying the deposit back.
