Dogwood Trails Kennel / mislead on size of dog/deposit taken
The breeder, Debbie Kuster told me whatever I wanted to hear about this breed, The King Charles Cavalier to get a deposit on pay pal from me as fast as possible. I wanted a dog similar in size to my 6 pound pomeranian - she said this dog would be. I therefore paid a $500.00 deposit which she waiting anxiously for. The next day..I looked at her site and saw a papillon next to the Cavalier and realized this dog is MUCH bigger than I was lead to believe. I asked for my deposit back and she refused..saying this is business. I tried to find a solution and asked about her papillons..she also refused for me to get a different dog instead. Then the following day she called and said she had a papillon but it is not AKC registered and would cost $1, 000.- that seemed to be very expensive for a dog that is not AKC registered and a pedigree. I asked if she could send a photo so I could think about it..she e-mailed one and then changed her price to $1, 200. ..I knew she was trying to just make some more money off of me. I looked on-line at other papillons that were AKC registered on Next Day Pet and saw they are priced from $350.-$800. her dog was also going to only be 3 pounds full grown which is smaller than I wanted..so I asked if I just could have my deposit back she said NO and to go hang myself.
