Nowland Pomeranians / Bad Dog Breeder
We decided to get a Pomeranian puppy from Kim Nowland after my mother's dog died of cancer 2 weeks ago. When I first called Kim I asked her the price of the puppy and she said well how much do you want to spend? I told he I paid $850 for mine and she said $800 without papers.
As it started getting closer to time to get her we found out that she had never been to the vet. She said 'I'm not going to spend $30 for a shot when I can spend $3 and do it myself" We asked the dogs weight and she said she really didn't know. I later found out you have to know the exact weight to give a dog shots and deworm it so we thought something was up right there. At 7 weeks my Mom asked her how many shots she had and she replied none. After talking to other breeders we found out that she should of had a set of shots already.
When we asked about overbite and underbite she said "Who cares it is just a pet"
I found out also from several other breeders that akc rules state every litter is to be registered & every puppy goes with registration papers.
When we found this out and asked her she said at it would be $1800 to just get a registration.
I got my Champion Sired Pom for $850 with full breeding rights.
She said she wouldn't drive the puppy to us also without fulling paying her first. She lived a few hours away. My mom was going to pay extra money to have her delivered and she wouldn't bring her until she was fully paid first.
Since the puppy did not have a vet report and this breeder would say one thing one minute then the opposite the other we decided to question her more.
This is the exact letter that was sent to her:

I want vet check becauseonly a vet can tell stuff like open fontella & other things that can make any dog need special care. I also want fecal test. Also I found out that I can still get papers but you can put limited registeration on it that is usually what breeders do with dogs they are selling that are AKC but dont want dogs bred. Otherwise a person buying a puppy would have no idea what kind of pup they are getting.
and here is her exact reply:

Sorry she died.
Then even after receiving this message she emailed my Mom AGAIN and told her that the dog was going to be $800 for a Pet without papers but if we had wanted papers she would be $1800. THEN she said" I GUESS NEITHER ONE OF US HAS TO WORRY ABOUT THAT NOW"
After this we wrote her back asking when she would tell us and that we were being scammed.
So then I get this message from her:
I hear your talking ###. Watch what you say. I have no reason to sue you at this time but you [censored] with my business I will have a lawyer so far down your throat you will choke to death. I am not selling the girl without papers. That is all there is to it. I told you that from day one. No reason to get pissed about it. OK. I certainly could not care any less. She does not need to go anywhere. If I register her I have a dozen homes to place her at. I just thought your moms story was a sad one and the sister has a bad bite so she this litter is not what I would consider an AKC quality litter and I will by no means be registering a pet litter out of a pet ###. So the deal is dead. Dead dead dead. K Never Mind Sold her LOL
BEWARE OF THIS BREEDER!!
All we wanted was a female Pomeranian for PET only and spayed. We have no desire to breed her yet we wanted a dog with good lines and a good history of health.
