Lil Darlin Pomeranians / No dog and No refund!

1 Elkhart, TX, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I paid her for a dog in March. ($1, 250) It has now been over five months since she received my money. She has not sent me a dog or my money back. There are always excuses. I even tried to get her to send me dogs other than the one that I initialy purchased. My thoughts were that something would be better than nothing. She refused to send anything! She said she would send me a refund, however I have only ever received $50.00. We will now be forced to take other action in hopes of getting our money back. It has been nothing but a stressful situation.

I am aware that I am not the only person that she owes. There has been many in the past and there are atleast two right now.

Do yourself a favor and stay clear of this situation. I wish I had.

    Hi JTS:

    Not sure if you saw my posting-not all postings come up when searched for by business owner name. It depends on how you search, I guess. Please see my complaint at: https://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/gina-amp-rick-alford-c232263.html
    I'm of the opinion that, at some point, a class action lawsuit should be considered. How many of us (the scammed) are out there? Those who have suffered through 'The Alford Wrath" (emotionally and financially) need to take a stand. The Alfords have ripped enough people off. I did, indeed, see some of the negative comments before my transaction but figured-in all business, there shall be disgruntled people. That is not the situation here. It is scam after deliberate scam-and on and on. Those who are 'yet to be scammed' need to be informed.
    I'm out thousands due to my initial $1750 payment and medical bills for a sick puppy. It's an atrocity.

    TO ALL, THESE COMPLAINTS LISTED ABOVE ARE SONOT TRUE.
    THERE IS NO 'BELLA MOM, HER NAME IS BRIDGET MCDONALD, A VERY ILL PERSON WHO PRAYS ON POM PEOPLE AS TO BE THERE BEST FRIEND WHILE ALL THE TIME SHE IS MAKING HER PLAN TO CON/SCAM YOU AS SHE DID MY HUDBAND AND I.
    WE ARE RICK AND GINA ALFORD OF LIL DARLIN POMS,
    MRS. MCDONALD HAD AND TOLD OTHER PEOPLE THAT SHE WAS GOING TO GET US TO MOVE OUT TO TEXAS AS SHE KNEW THAT I DO HAVE A RARE EYE DISEASE AND IT WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER IF I HAD A FRIEND TO HELP WITH MY BREEDING OF MY POMS.SO SHE BEFRIENDED ME FOR MONTHS!
    SHE DID CONVINCE US TO MOVE TO TEXAS, BUT SHE HAD JUST MOVED HERSELF WITH HER FAMILY BACK TO TEXAS AND WAS STAYING WITH A COUPLE THAT BREEDS AND SHOWS POMS, A FRIEND OF HERS AS I THOUGHT,
    BILLY AND CAROL, THEY DID LET THE MCDONADS AND MY HUSBAND AND I STAY WITH THEM WHILE THE MCDONALDS WERE SUPPOSE TO BE LOOKING FOR A HOME,
    MRS. MCDONALD ASK US IF WE WOULD MOVE WITH THEM AND BRIDGET OTHERWISE KNOWN AS MRS. MCDONALD WOULD HELP ME WITH MY BREEDING PROGRAM AND WE COULD DO THIS TOGETHER,
    A PERFECT SOLUTION FOR US WITH THE PROBLEMS I FACE WITH THIS EYE DISEASE, 'RP'' BUT WE WERE ONLY @ THE OTHER COUPLES HOME WITH THE MCDONALDS ABOUT 1 MONTH WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR MY HUSBAND
    AND I AND THE MCDONALDS TO PAY THE OWNERS OF THE HOME WE WERE AT BILLY AND CAROL OUR PORTION FOR LIVING THERE THAT I SAW WHAT TYPE PEOPLE THE MCDONALDS WERE.
    THEY ONLY OWED 200.00 TO THIS COUPLE, AT THAT TIME
    THEY WOULD NOT PAY BILLY OR CAROL AND THEY WERE THROWN OUT, THEY THEN WENT TO THERE MOTHER- LAWS,
    I WONDER WHY THEY DID NOT WANT OR WAS NOT INVITED
    TO STAY WITH FAMILY WHEN THEY CAME BACK TO TEXAS,
    BUT BRIDGET DOES PUT ON A GREAT CONVINCING ACT, AND I BOUGHT IT FOR A WHILE, BUT WHILE LIVING WITH BILLY AND CAROL WITH BRIDGET MCDONALD AND HER FAMILY I STARTED TO SEE DISRESPECT
    LAZY/AND JUST PLAIN USING THIS COUPLE,
    MY THOUGHTS THEN WERE IF SHE WILL DO THIS TO FRIENDS ( BILLY AND CAROL) THEY HAD KNOWN FOR 10 YEARS WHAT WOULD SHE DO TO ME.

    SO WE PAID OUR SHARE TO BILLY AND CAROL, ONLY KNOWING THEM AT THAT TIME FOR ABOUT 6 WEEKS AND THEY OFFERED TO LET US STAY WITH THEM UNTIL WE COULD FIND A HOME OF OUR ON,
    AS NOW WE ARE IN OUR ON PLACE, WHAT A NIGHTMARE TO HAVE BEEN A VICTOM OF THE MCDONALDS, BUT BILLY AND CAROL SAW THAT WE WERE HONEST AND CARING PEOPLE AND LEASED US ONE OF THE GUESS HOMES ON THERE LAND.
    WHAT GOOD PEOPLE THEY HAVE BEEN TO US AND CONTINUE TO BE.
    AS FOR THE OTHER COMPLAINT FOR 'JTD'
    YES SHE BOUGHT A DOG FROM ME IN MARCH, AND WAS VET CHECKED, HAD THE HEALTH CERT. DATED FOR MARCH 26, 2009 READY TO SHIP, AND AS I ALWAYS DO, IF THERE IS ANY PROBLEM WITH THE VET CHECK I HAVE IT WRITTEN ON THE RECORD OF THE PUP/DOG AND GO OVER IT WITH THE CLIENT,
    WHEN I CALLED 'JANE SANDERS' I TOLD HER THE FEMALE HAD A GRADE 1 PATELLA, WE WERE READY TO SHIP WITHIN 3 DAYS,
    SHE WAS NOT SURE IF SHE WANTED THE FEMALE THEN, SO TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, SHE CHANGED HER MIND 5 MORE TIMES THRU THIS PAST SUMMER,
    THIS WOMAN HAS SOME ISSUES THAT SHE TAKES A ANTIDEPRESSENT 'CYMBALTA' FOR,
    I TOLD HER HUSBAND I FELT THAT SHE COULD NOT MAKE HER MIND UP,
    ONE DAY SHE WAS FINE, BY THE EVENING SHE WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
    SO AS FAR AS I CAN SEE, SHE NEEDS TO SEEK SOME MENTAL HEALTH SO SHE CAN BE ABLE TO BE AT PEACE WITH HERSELF AND THE POMERANIANS AS THEY DO SENSE AND UNSTABLE ENVIROMENT.
    AS TO CLOSE WITH THIS NIGHTMARE I CAN ONLY HOPE SHE WILL SEEK HELP FOR HER ILLNESS AND OTHER BREEDERS WILL READ THIS SO THEY WILL NOT BE CAUGHT UP IN THE WRATH OF JANE SANDERS,
    AS IT STANDS NOW, SHE DID DECIDE SHE WANTED ONCE AGAIN HER 1ST FEMALE SHE PICKED WITH THE PATELLA ISSUE,
    BUT WANTED AS SHE AND BRIDGET MCDONALD ARE FRIENDS FOR NOW, SHE REQUESTED THAT WE DELIVER THE FEMALE TO THE MCDONALDS AS WE HAD ALREADY SENT THE MONEY FOR SHIPPING BACK TO HER PLUS PURCHASED A 50.00 HEALTH CERT. THAT WAS NOW USED.
    I REQUESTED A TOTAL RELEASE OF LIABILITY IF WE WERE TO RELEASE THE FEMALE SHE PURCHASED TO THE MCDONALDS AS I WATCHED THEM OVER THE SUMMER LET ONE OF THERE PRECIOUS BOYS 'GIBBS' STAY OUT IN WEATHER WITH TEMPS 108% THROUGH THE EVENING, NEVER CHECKING ON HIM, HE DIED THAT NIGHT DUE TO A BREATHING PROBLEM HE HAD AND WAS LEFT UNATTENDED BY THE MCDONALDS IN SUCH EXTREME HEAT THAT HIS LITTLE BODY COULD NOT TAKE AND PASSED AWAY THAT EVENING,
    THE FRIEND WE WERE STAYING WITH CAROL CAME OUT AS SHE FOUND HIM AND SAID 'GIBBS' HAD JUST DIED,
    I WATCHED BRISDGET, SHE NEVER EVEN WENT BACK TO THE BACK YARD TO CHECK ON HIM OR TO TELL HIM GOODBYE, HE WAS BURIED THE NEXT MORNING BY CAROLS HUSBAND AS NOR BRIDGET OR HER HUSBAND WOULD NOT EVEN TAKE THERE BELOVED PET AND PUT HIM TO REST.

    HOW COULD ANYONE WITH A HEART NOT WANT TO TAKE CARE OF THERE BELOVED PET THAT HAD SUFFERED TO THE POINT OF DIEING THAT EVENING BEFORE WANT TO MAKE SURE HE WAS BURIED WITH LOVE AND A KISS GOOD BYE.
    FROM HIS MOM AND DAD!!! THIS WAS ALL I NEEDED TO SEE!
    THE REST WAS JUST FICTION TO ME, HOW DARE HER OR ANYONE NOT BE BY THERE PETS SIDE IF HE WAS SICK!!!
    AFTER SEEING THIS HAPPEN, I KNEW THESE WERE NOT THE TRPE PEOPLE I WANTED MY POM KIDS TO BE AROUND. SO GOD HAS HIS WAY TO GUIDE US IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION,
    AND NOW WE ARE HAPPY IN OUR HOME, HAVE JUST WONDERFUL PEOPLE ALL AROUND US CAROL/BILLY/ALICE/AND OTHERS THAT ARE SALT OF THE EARTH PEOPLE.
    THANKS FOR LETTING ME SHARE THIS STORY,
    PLEASE DO NOT BE A VICTOM TO THE MCDONALDS, AND IF YOU ARE A BREDER PLEASE BEWARE OF JANE SANDERS,
    IF YOU NEED MORE IFO,
    PLEASE EMAIL ME @ lildarlinpoms@live.com

    Let me introduce myself as, Carol, the one that has let Gina & Rick Alford live in our house for the past three months. Gina & Rick have paid their share in living in our house. as for their taking care of their poms. They have been taking care of them better, then Bridget McDonald did when they lived here. Bridget McDonald smoked & drink coffee on my porch, that all she did, during the day, an fixed supper for her family in the evening. I had to make her help me with her poms at night getting them in, after her Gibbs die. Bridget does go under other names in groups . Her kennel name is IddyBidy Poms. I have known her for 10 years, an would have known that she an her family would have done this to Billy & me. I drove to Missouri, an took care of her 9 poms for a month before they came here to live, so it was three months of taking care of her poms total. Bridget said she knows how to talk to people an make them do what she wants them too, but found out me & Gina caught on to her tricks. As for Jane & Theresa, they better wake up, because Bridget well do them in too.Gina might have bad sight problems, but she will help you in a minute if you need it. Gina & Rick Alford are finally getting back to normal after a night mare of three months.

    Gina has always been a manipulative person and a compulsive liar since she was young. i know this from years of personal experience. She is an absolute disgrace. For anyone who has been scammed by her, just move on She will always have an excuse and I know first hand for over 20 years!

    To All,
    I am posting this answer to the complaint that is above that includes Bridget McDonald /Bella's Mom,
    This statement is not true, There is a Bella's Mom, Lives in Green Bay, WI.
    I will Answer he compaint at another time.
    I want to total focus on Bridget McDonald as she and I were the best of friends, Someone has tried there best to destroy this friendship, BUT, THE STATESMENTS ARE NO TRUE.
    BRIDGET AND i HAD A GREAT FRIENDSHIP OVER THE PHONE IN THE End OF 2008, IF i REMEMBER CORRECT
    We talked everyday, she was up living in MO< I was in Brookhaven, MS, I was going to the heartache of my live with our Pomeranian CH Tucker as everyone knew of him.
    He hasd been very ill with what started as a sinus infection, But without the right antbiotics it grew into a brain infection,
    Cultures were done, Antibiotic finally found. He cleared up and was the Happy baby boy again for Christmas 2008
    As all of this unfoldered, Bridget was right by my side. We talked everyday, sometimes halfway through the nights, it was a great friendship.
    Then I was ask to keep 2 little pomeranians owed by Pam K. a breeder I knew in our home town,
    yes, I knew she was a large scale breeder, But never expected for her to bring 2 sick pups was 3 bacteria's to my home.
    As you can see, Tucker had been sick for a very long time and his immune system was down, Long Story Short, My baby caught these bacteria's and could not overcome them,
    He passed away,
    Now Bridget was the only person but for my hubby that was keeping me going.You would have to have known the relatioship I had with this special pom for 9 years.
    the greatest Love of my Heart and Sole.
    Bridget saw this and hekped me through one day at a time.
    After 2 mths of Tucker's passing, Bridget was moving back to TX.She was going to be staying with what I THOUGHT WAS A GOOD FRIEND OF HERS, i THINK SHE THOUGHT SHE WAS A GOOD FRIEND.CAROL KIVCH,
    SHE TAKED ME INTO COMING OUT TO VISIT HER IN TX, SAID IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR ME TO START GETTING OUT, i AGREED, MY HUBBY DROVE ME OUT ON JUNE 1, 2009 i TOOK 2 OF MY MALES TO AS CAROL ASKED ME IF SHE COULD BREED 2 OF HER FEMALES TOO.
    BEAR/DREAMER BRIDGET ANF I BRED HALLIE AND GRETCHEN TO THE GUYS.
    AND TOTALLY ENJOYED THOSE 2 WEEKS WITH BRIDGET AND HER FAMILY, LOVED HER KIDS AND HER HUBBY WAS GREAT.
    We talked alot about the future, my eye disease and she suggested why didn't we move out there. She was my best friend, and with her by my side, I could have the best help with raising my pom kids, knowing one day down the road, I might have to stop or just help, and my thoughts were we could still have the pomkids Rick and I so dearly love and my Best friend there to take over my lines and She was the type person she would always let me help as I could.
    But I do need to back up a bit. While I was out there visiting, I brought out my pom girl Delaney, She was due to have babies right after i got there to cisit.
    We had a c/section, if it had not been for Bridget/her hubby Bill as he was an EMT He and Bridget saved that litter for me that day. Bill put together a oxegen tent for those babies, to help get the fluid out of there lungs,
    both were great, I would have lost one for sure if they have not spent hours helping.
    Bridget continued to help with cooking for Delaney as she was not eating well,
    Staying up with the babies, holding them on the mom so they could nurse, We hand fed them also,
    She was right there, never had to ask, if was second nature for Bridget.
    Not many friends are lucky enough to have a friend like this.
    We talked about moving out and doing the poms together.
    Everything looked brite!.
    Rick and I did move there, Not sure what happened with Mrs. Kivch, But She seemed to become not happy.
    I think she did not like the closest of Bridget and my friendship, and started to interfere.
    As you can see with these postings,
    But Bridget from what I could see while I was out visiting, would cook dinner everynight, the Kivch's would take the night duty of getting in the pom kids and feeding them, there's and Bridget's..One night after dinner, we were visiting, dinner had been put up, dishes washed, and as any other night the Kivch's were getting the pom kids in, But thhis night was so different.
    Carol Kivch came to the door, opened it and barely stuck her head out and said Bridget, Gibbs is dead, Thats all, Gibbs was Bridget's bottle baby and then become so special .
    Later that evening I came through the kitchen, Carol looked at me and said"I saw Gibbs having trouble breathing, I thought he was having a heart stroke, BUT, I was going to tend to my own first.
    Then as she said, I just forget about him, and later found him dead.
    If she had just taken the time to come get us, between Bridget/Bill and myself Gibbs we could have most likely got him through this.
    She saw a puppy in trouble and did nothing, How can a person of any kind turn there back on a helpless animal,
    When it would have been so easy to stop this from happening.
    It's second nature if you see a baby/puppydog or adult in trouble to help.
    But she did not and admitted to me she knew he was having breathing problems.
    How she lives with that I do not know,
    These type people are missing something within thereselves.
    You never turn your back on someone or a sweet puppydog or any animal that you have the ability to know better unless, something is missing within.
    Or just not a person of GOD.
    For GODS SAKE, Bridget's husband as there and an EMT, What more could have Gibbs needed with all of us so close, But not told til it was too late.
    I tried be best to comfort Bridget, But she was hurting like I remembered whenI lost my Tucker,
    See, God gives us the precious animals for them to love us,
    But gives us the knowledge bas to take care of them.
    What a beautiful gift, so all of you that read this, if you don't feel the pain Bridget went through, in my eyes, you are missing something within and never will really know how to love. As a puppydog will give you unconditional love, no strings, games, just there for you all the time>
    Thats why God made sure there was a NOAH's ARK. To preserve all types of animals so we as people would have the blessing to love them as they come into our lives.
    But, Bridget loss something so dear and special that night,
    later she came to me and ask, since Rick was coming out, I had a female in heat, Could she use her to breed to Gibbs dad, I said of course, How I wish I had the chance to Breed again to Tuckers dad, but he had passed on.
    Rick came to get me to go back for a few weeks, I left the female for Bridget to take to breed to Gibbs dad,
    She did get pregnant,
    after that things started to go down with the Kivch's. another posting I need to wright so all will understand the truth, But for this posting, my focus was to tell my story about Bridget/our friendship/the type person she and her family are, How much I miss them as we are back in MS . Now
    But with the posting that were put up and the untruths, needed to be corrected in Gibbs honor and Bridget as I know deep down in my heart and my husband also says, they are such good people.
    we both miss them and the good times we had.
    Now it's time to repair the friendship, it never should have gone astrsay. You never know in this life how many chances will come your way to know this kind of friends as Bridget/Bill and both of those darling kids.
    We Love You Guys
    Rick and Gina

    Gina Alford of LIL DARLIN POMERANIANS is a very unethical breeder.. At one point in time gina did have very nice dogs..But now hwr dogs are pet quality at best.. Her dogs are unhealthy AND NOT GOOD REPRESENTATIONS OF THE BREED. sHE SELLS HER DOG IN THE NEWSPAPER.. She is a typical backyard breeder.Any breeder that deals with gina is unethical as well so beware.. No reputable breeders will deal with Gina nor sell dogs to gina.. All of the dogs on her site are photoshopped.. Research her she has numerous complaints..And she has an excuse for everything.. Run from this breeder.. Now if you have been scammed nlike me before doing my homework..Contact the police press charges then contact the fbi internet fraud division.. Also contact the irs because gina does not pay taxes and receives ssi and does report that income as well... Please do your home work and dont help make breeders like gina rich.. contact the american pomeranian association for a list of breeders.. And if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.. i can send you copies of my police reports..

    As of 2011 Richard Alford and Gina Alford also known as Nancy Alford ripped me off of a dog. She promised to send me a dog that I had well over paid for and never received it. I urge for buyers to please stay away from these people. They do not take care of their pets and they live in a flea and feces infested home. Most of her dogs are sick! not only is she a hoarder but she is a disgusting human. She has no respect for others hard earned money and she never will. She claims to be legally blind, but this is only a scam to get people to feel bad for her. She will try and be as kind as she can be in the begining then she will turn on you. PLEASE BUYERS STAY FAR AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE!!!
