ePuppyPro.com / Sick puppy
Believe it or not I was online looking for an English Bulldog for my girls for several weeks and uncovered a lot of scams online but I also fell into the trap. I had contacted Ms. Danille O'Neal and spoken to her several times by phone an emails and explained to her the gift I wanted to provide to my girls for their birthday. I searched and searched and finally saw a picture of a beautiful female red/white. I immediately fell in love with her. I paid $2850 in total including shipping and only had her 24 hours before she passed away. The puppy arrived with a large scar in the center of her belly that still had an existing defect and an abscess covering her anal area. When I contacted the breeder after directly taking the puppy to my vet about three hours after picking her up, the breeder denied the puppy having any scar or abscess. Right there I knew something was not right but I felt okay worst case scenario I am dealing with a liar but at least I still have the puppy. Mind you I only received a health certificate no registration papers or anything as promised to me. The very next day the puppy passed away. I took her to the emergency clinic but they would not touch her because they stated I needed to get a hold of my breeder first. I emailed and called and no responses!!! Almost 24 hours pass and I still have no answers or communication with the breeder. I take her to my vet and he certifies her death and states to me that I have the option of getting an autopsy but since so many hours have past he felt it would be inconclusive and its additional monies that I would absorb. I finally spoke with my credit card company and am in the middle of filing a dispute against this company for fraud! Will I get my money I really do not know but my girls are absolutely heartbroken as well as myself and now I am in the mists of trying to repair this damage with my babies by looking for another bullie for them.
My puppy also came with a tattoo in which I asked about and the response was I only do that so I can tell them apart for their pedigrees??? I also asked if her puppies were raised by her and she said YES! NEVER MENTIONED THEY WERE SHIPPED FROM RUSSIA!!!! If I would have known that I would have NEVER made the sale.
Then I come across Ms Lobopuppies.com which I had no idea she was related to epuppypro.com but luckly she realized who I was and cancelled my transaction before any fraud was committed.
All I wanted was to offer a beautiful bullie a good home filled with love and make my daughters happy. We are a good family with a large home and lots of love to give and it really saddens me that these breeders utilize these poor puppies as bait to steal from honest people like us.
All I can say is Beware!!!
