Nathan Bazler- Is selling sick puppies. We bought a puppy from him and he has kennel cough, so we took him to the vet. I ask Nathan to pay part not evan all of my vet bill. He tells me no and says my puppy didn't have kennel cough but got it from the shot the vet gave him. I have never heard of such a thing.
I have to say I would have never bought a puppy from a puppy mill
( but we are glad to have him). I have to believe its a puppy mill bc I have now found a couple differnt company names online to buy puppies from that I found just by googling his name. So please don't be like me look for a real breeder not some puppy mill.

We just bought a yorkie from him and she is very sick, less then 48 hours and she was sick. I traveled 4 hours to pick up the puppy. My puppy that is 8 weeks old has been at the ER vet and they are not sure if she is going to make it. I called and he sounded like he could care less what is going on with our puppy, said to keep him updated. If I ask him a questions he will do everything but answer the question you ask him. BEWARE!

This is Nathan Bazler, owner of Little Puppies Online LLC. We have lots of reviews on the Internet about how happy our customers are, and just a few that aren't. Unfortunatly, when you sell live animals there is always a risk of illness. Anyone is welcome to come to our home and see our beautiful puppies. Mrs reed was given the opportunity to bring her puppy to our vet and we would have paid 100% of her vet bills. Since she declined and had a terrible attitude, she now has to pay for her own vet bills.

Mrs byards puppy had low blood sugar from not eating. We did everything we could to educate her on how to prevent this, but was unsuccessful. We are pleased that hear puppy is doing great today.

We have very healthy happy puppies, but like I said, when dealing with live animals, there is always a possibility if stress related issues. We educate all of our customers on this and are always available by phone.

I bought a dog from them and when it showed up it wasn't even the dog on the site. Then a few weeks later they posted the same picture of the "dog" I was suppose to be buying. They re-use pics. The dog I purchased was not healthy. I tried to get my money back and couldn't. I contacted the BBS, but it was ridicules. DON’T BUY from them!!!

Nathan, you are being very dishonest, very. The puppy you sold us did not have low blood sugar! She had a cough in her chest and a parasite. You know that you sold us a sick puppy and for the last 4 weeks she has been in and out of the vet. How can you sell a sick puppy to a 4 year old little girl, that she can't play with, her first puppy. That is wrong and you know it. You have a child, would you want someone selling him a sick puppy. Plus, if you were worried about our puppy, dont you think we would hear from you? No, the last to time I spoke to you about her, I said I talked to our lawyer, you said, your lawyer told you to work it out because they know the way you wrote your warranty that the court can't do anything about it. It is a matter of time before karma gets you. So, everyone that is reading this, he does sell sick puppies and more and more people will come forward. You deal with puppy mills not real breeders. Yes, go to his house and check it out. Very clean and well kept but he don't breed the puppies like he says he does. Website is down, wonder why? Now, if anyone would like to call and talk to me about little puppies online I would love to tell you more.

DAYUMMMM! Sounds like Nathan needs to take a break from selling puppies, sterilize his home and yard, and maybe try again.

Selling sick animals should be an arrest-able offence. It's basically stealing and it's completely abuse.

Nathan - why is your vet the only vet you will pay for? If I got a sick animal from you, your vet would be the last place I would take it to. I would want to go to my vet where I know that no deals have been made.

If you are willing to pay at your vet, you should be willing to pay for any vet.

IMHO of course.

He is a puppy broker and after so much research, usually puppy brokers buy from puppy mills. We travelled 4 hours to pick up our puppy. By no means am I new to having animals and understand that animals take time to adjust to a new home. I have told him many times that I don't want my money back, I just want them to pay some of the vet bills. what I think is funny, he has a warranty that everyone has to sign before you take the puppy, which is fine but like he said, he has the contract wrote where you cant get any money back or even help. basically it is a piece of paper that at the time you think, wow, they have there stuff together. he knows whatever pup he sells if the pup gets sick and dies, then he is free and clear. it is sad that in todays world all people think about is money. which is a sin. oh, one more thing, his vet, which we looked into and asked many questions about the shot records, my vet can't even read one of the shot names and called. Never called my vet back.

I also bought 2 sick puppies for Nathan and he refused to return my phone calls or pay for the vet bills. We traveld 3 hours to pick up the puppies on 2 different occassions. Now we are going o small claims court, but if i find more people who have experienced the same maybe we will take it to the next level.

I, too, bought a sick puppy from Nathan. ( A little Boston Terrier they had named Betsie) They absolutely knew she was sick because they said they had to get her well before shipping her. Time passes and surprise!...she is well enough to come to my home. Of course it was their vacation time and they wanted to rid themselves of her responsibility. This little puppy was pitiful. They knew she wasn't even eating!.I took her to my Vet and spent $250.00 on the blood work only to discover she was VERY sick...even had kidney failure. My vet said she would never be a healthy dog with a life full of challenges. I paid for the dog, paid for her flight to Texas. Paid for the Vet here and paid for the flight back to Ohio. Nathan knew it was wrong and said he would "take care of me". I never saw a penny nor has he called me. I was just ripped off and he knows it. I thought I could trust him because they have friends here and one of them is a preacher. Goes to show when it comes to money, some people will never do what is right. (and they were supposedly "Christians". I had purchased a healthy dog from Nathan prior to "Betsie" so I know they are not all sick. But straight up honest, he is quite crafty, unscrupulous, will sell anything to make money regardless if it breaks your heart. He does not tell the truth or follow up. I am embarrassed I was reeled in by such a smooth talking business man.

I bought a puppy from nathan and have had nothing but issues. First he was diagnosed with a parasite that was causing him to not eat which caused his blood sugar to drop to 12. A low glue close for dogs should be between 70-80, the vet said had i gotten there 10 minutes later he would of died. After putting him on 6 different meds and my other yorkie on 3 for preventative reasons, he got a little better. I was in the ER with him last night due to him shaking and swaying back and forth after he ate, almost like he was drunk. Turns out he has liver shunts which is a hereditary condition and could of been prevented had Nathan not been breeding dogs that had this condition. I was advised to contact Nathan and trust me i will. This will not be the last he hears from me. I wont stop until he is shut down!!! When I first had issues with my yorkie, i contacted Nathan and he wasn't willing to help out with anything. DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS GUY!! What he is doing is wrong and i promise i will shut him down. I don't want a dime from him i just want him to no longer be able to breed sick dogs, and make sick puppies. It's wrong and i will make sure that he never breeds another dog again.

I agree, I my Wife had just purchased a puppy from littlepuppiesonline.com and once we picked the puppy up at the air port she was very filthy and dirty and smelled awful, and was shaking very bad my wife took her to the groomer the next day. Then we made a appointment to see a vet and when we saw him he told us the puppy had a very bad ear infection. To tell you the truth this don't look like the same puppy that was on line that I thought I purchased .Nathan man the old me would have took a plane or drove to your door step and handle my business, you dig.after he sold my wife the puppy I E-mail him and no response

I, too, purchased a puppy from Nathan, which arrived filthy and smelly with his ears oozing. We had to take him to the vet within 48 hours of receiving him, only to find that he had kennel cough. I've since seen the same photo of the dog that I believed I was purchasing posted on his website to be sold again. He is most certainly re-using these photos. Additionally, I paid a premium price because my dog was advertised as being a "teacup" who would only be 3.5 lbs full-gown. Now, at only 6 months, he is nearly 7 lbs. Of course we love him and would never dream of returning him, which is exactly what Nathan is counting on. By the time you realize your puppy is not what was promised, you're already in love with the little guy and would never send him back to a place where he won't even receive minimal care. I would NEVER purchase another dog from these people. While their prices are significantly lower than other breeders, $800 is still alot of money to pay for a dog. You're better off saving for a little longer and getting a healthy puppy from a reputable breeder. You should be ashamed of yourself, Nathan.

I had been looking on the site littlepuppiesonline.com and was considering purchasing a puppy. I have noticed several links through different websites posting the same picture of a puppy with different information all linking back to his website. I was searching all over the internet looking for whether they were reputable or not and sadly came across many "good reviews" before ever coming across this. Through the Better Business Bureau they even have a "B" rating... may I make the recommendation to those of you who have experienced this to submit your complaints to them. At the very east his rating would go down and he would look less credible to those researching purchasing a puppy through him. Thank you for sharing. I now know to go elsewhere. I am sorry for all the difficulty you guys have experienced and it breaks my heart to think of the conditions those dogs are being born/breed into.

We purchased a mini dachshund from Nathan. We also travelled 4 hours to his home and 4 hours back to our home. Our dachshund is now healthy but when we brought her home, our vet told us she had a case of ear mites and kennel cough. Nathan was good in returning phone calls and e-mails before we purchased our dog but there was something in my heart that doubted things he said because he told us they were the breeders of our dauchshund which wasn't true. When we went to pick up our dog, his son was handling another puppy and he was very rough with it. I do NOT support puppy mills and if Nathan gets his dogs from a mill, he should be closed down forever. I guess I am looking at the adoption of our puppy as a "rescue" from an environment that places too much focus on the almighty dollar instead of the well-being of their puppies.

I have purchased two havanese puppies from Nathan and I couldn't be more happy. They are healthy, energetic, and the sweetest pups I could have asked for. Things such as kennel cough and mites are common problems found with puppies, even puppies from reputable breeders. Even things such as worms and parasites are common. We have a standard poodle we bought from a very reputable breeder, and paid 1500 dollars for him, and as a puppy he had ear mites, an ear infection, and giardia, a common parasite. I would recommend Nathan and his puppies. I have been very happy with my additions to my family

This is Nathan Bazler, owner of Little Puppies Online LLC. I wan’t to start of by saying that there is a bright side of these complaints being posted online...I have been able to use them as constructive criticism to bring my business and breeding program to the highest standard. Here are a few things that have changed in the past 6 months...We have built a new 500 sq ft kennel with its own ventilation, water, and septic system. We have hired two kennel techs to help take care of the puppies and we have a vet visit once a week. We have also changed our mindset of customer service. I promise you, that in the rare event that someone has a problem with their puppy, we will take responsibility financially and morally to do whatever needs to be done to correct the situation. The positive reviews online about our company far out weigh the negative and I hope that customers factor this in when deciding on working with us to find your future puppy. I challenge anyone who has made a complaint on here to contact us so that we can help make things right.
