Birken Wald Kennel / Defective German Shepherd Puppy - Unethical Breeder Behavior
Teri Townsend sold a German shepherd puppy to me on 5/15/15. Two days later, I brought the dog to my vet who thought she was underweight and might have hip problems. I was referred to Dr. Henry, orthopedic vet to have a PENN Hip Xray (cost $1400) because dog is put under conscious sedation. I was devastated to learn the pup had bilateral juvenile hip dysplasia. I called Teri to tell her and withheld a $700. check, for which we went to court and settled payment. While Teri asked for the dog back, it was too late. My family fell in love with this dog. Since then, I have paid a total of $6000, -- CAT Scan of elbows and hips, etc only to learn she has bilateral hip and elbow dysplasia. She had elbow arthoscopy surgery and takes daily rimadyl and meloxicam pain meds even though she is on house rest. She is starting physical therapy 3/16. To add injury, Teri has issues with the AKC paperwork with apparent mix up of dogs and I have not received the AKC paperwork for my pup. I have never asked Teri for one penny of the $6000. I am writing to this group, because Teri Townsend may do the same to others as she is mating my puppy's sister with other dogs who have hips and elbows not cleared in order to benefit financially while the dogs and buyers suffer. I was not surprised to hear that this is not her first time in court. Samson vom Birkenwald (sire) and Alexis vom Konigsdorf AKC DN29655501 are my pups parents. I have many documents that I can send to readers directly. Please leave your email.
