merle pomeranian / Sold me a pup with alopecia
I bought a 3 month old merle pom from Tina.She claims on her site that her poms are worth the huge amount she charges because they are small and have huge coats. I paid thousands for this pom allstars lookin alot like pride Jr. I asked before purchase if there were any genetic issues, especially alopecia x. She told me no. When I received the pup he was stunning, but a few months later I noticed his coat was cottony and matted easily; one of the early signs of alopecia x. I emailed her my concern and got no reply. Then at a year old he started to lose coat. He now has classic alopecia x balding, only hair on head and legs. She refuses to give me even a partial refund. BEWARE of this breeder! others I have now found out have had unsatisfactory dealings with her.
