Lucky Star Goldens / Puppy deposit fraud
We were anxiously anticipating picking up our healthy puppy from Tessa this July 2013. However instead we have been informed the puppy would not be available as all the puppies (10 in total) are at the veterinarian for parvo virus infection.
Since she informed us of this issue, we have received one update that three of the puppies have passed away and we can "adopt" any surviving puppy for a reduced fee. We wrote a reply to Tessa stating that we understand this is a difficult time, however, we have contacted a different breeder that has healthy puppies available and have requested our $500 puppy deposit back. Since we have written this email, she has pulled down her website and is no longer answering her phone.
We currently feel duped. We wonder if the ten puppies have ever existed and if she is just stringing us along. BEWARE of this site!
