East Coast Danes / issues with complaints
We at East Coast Danes continue to strive for excellence daily, being that we have been a small family breeder for going on 17 years now, and our dogs are a big part of our family. As to the complaints on this site...our babies come with a 100% genetic guarantee in our contract that is very clearly outlined. The contract and guarantee is made available to view throughout the purchase process. This along with the availability of continued advice and support for the lifetime of the puppy you purchase is second to none.
Yes, we do have 2 residences; one n Massachusetts where I have resided for 39 years, and one in South Carolina that we purchased back in 2012. Starting out as just a winter home for us and the dogs, we did decide to stay here where both of my parents have had stage 4 cancer. With mom passing away in December of 2014, we are still now caring for dad who is in a wheelchair and on oxygen. As this is our primary residence now, we do still own our property in Massachusetts and are there a minimum of every 2-3 months, as all of our friends and family and property are there.
We NEVER ship our puppies by airline or personal transporter. We personally deliver all of our babies to their new homes in the Northeast to insure a proper fit for both the puppy and new prospective owners. Our puppies best interest is always first and foremost the most important thing and only entrust ourselves to care for them until they are in their new homes.
Also in our contract, for ANY reason at all throughout your puppies life that you purchase from us, if you need to give them up for any reason at all, they are to come back to us and not be rehomed, brought to a shelter/rescue group or given away to a family member. This is a practice of any good breeder, to be responsible for their puppies and take them back if needed and we back this up 100%. Thankfully in 17 years, we have only had to take back 3 dogs due to family situations changing and not being able to care for their dogs anymore but we ALWAYS take them back.
