[Resolved] Diane Donnelly, Tell-Tail Cockers in Olmsted Twp., OH / Fraudulent and unethical ohio dog breeder
This well known Ohio breeder is fraudulent in every sense of the word. She requires that you meet her at an offset location with cash. She lists her price on her site at $1500 per puppy and states that they are Show Quality puppies. She told us that we were to bring $3000 in cash to buy two puppies and we drove 5 hours from Maryland to Pennsylvania to meet with her. She had the puppies in a hot car in crates in 95 degree weather. She said she needed to go home as soon as possible because her dogs were caged in this heat with no air conditioning or shade. Like these puppies, I think her dogs may be in unsafe conditions.
We bought two puppies from her right away to get them out of the dangerous heat. When my husband and I got home we realized we both had paid her too much by mistake and she knowingly kept the money without saying anything. We called when we realized she had made out the receipts for too much money and she refused to give it back. She has $1000 of our money and will not return it.
When we pressured her she tried to force us to drive all the way back to Pennsylvania and give the puppies back. That was the only way she would return the over payment. We do not want to give the puppies back. They are our puppies now. We just want our $1000 back.
