Cove Angels / Genetic disorder breeding
I am severely disappointed in the lack of professionalism and irresponsibility this breeder has shown. Kerry Angell, of Cove Angels, is breeding Goldendoodles that have a genetic disorder and she does not alert buyers that their puppy may suffer from a congenital deformity. I paid $2, 200 for a Goldendoodle from one of her litters in June of 2014 and within 6 weeks I noticed an issue with the puppy's eye. I took him to two Veterinarians who diagnosed a problem called Nictatating Membrane Cartilage. This genetic deformity requires surgical correction and costs over $2, 000, with no guarantee the problem will be completely resolved . When I notified Kerry about the eye deformity and that it is likely to be passed on to other puppies through her breeding business, she denied that my puppy came from Cove Angels. I was shocked - I have the paperwork and the canceled check to prove that he was purchased from one of her litters. Please be forewarned - Kerry of Cove Angels is knowingly passing on a genetic disorder through her breeding business and charging top dollar for puppies who initially appear to be healthy, but may suffer from inherited physical problems as they become older. She runs a dishonest and unhealthy practice.
