Simons Poodles / sick puppies
I just baught a yorkie pup from this woman less than a week ago.The breeder assured us that the puppy had all needed vaccinations and wormings. She also stated that she gives all vaccinations, docks tails and ears on her own and the pups are not vet checked because she had been doing this for 19 years. This made me slightly spectible. I noticed it had a cough on the way home. Being excited and thinking the new pup is probably nervouse I took him to his new home. He acted ok for a day or two, then off to the vet he was coughing, gagging ans had no energy at all. I took him to the vet, the gave him fluids, antibiotics, and put him on a special diet. We were back at the vet the next day, and the puppy had to stay there. He was so sick, the vet said it was a bacterial infection that he contracted at birth or shortly after that could've easily been treated, but was left untreated . I got the puppy when he was 10 weeks old, and there was nothing myself, the vets, or all the money in the world that could've saved him. This lady has an out rageous amount of dogs and puppies at her home. Most looked clean, but obviously looks can be deceiving. I've contacted her several times and she has not returned my responses about the whole 1 year health gaurantee. I can't even get a 1 week gaurentee. Please-please-please don't buy any puppies from this woman unless you are ready for heartbreak. I don't know if my family will ever recover from being so excited about a new member of our family just to loose him so soon. If she ever does make right about this I wil correct this complaint to state that at least she did the right thing, but I wouldn't hold my breath. If you take any advice from this at all it is please be careful about where you get your puppy from. Sometimes we go to places like this we save a couple bucks, but whats really in it for the long run? I'd rather spend a litle bit more and have a life long companion.
