South Fork Boxers / Sells sick/deaf puppies
We recently purchased a boxer puppy from Rhyan King of South Fork Boxers and discovered she was sold to us when she already had an infection. We took her to the vet as soon as possible and they told us she had kennel cough. By that point, our other boxer had already gotten sick. The breeder is a vet tech, and it disturbs me greatly that she sold her to us at full price when you could look at her face and see that her sinuses were so infected that her eye was swollen shut and had green discharge oozing from it and her nose. We didn't notice when we made the purchase b/c it was after she fell asleep and woke back up that her poor face was a mess. We tried contacting her by phone and left her messages, also by text message and e-mail. So far, we have spent over $250 at the vet for antibiotics. This could have easily been avoided if she was simply honest about the puppy's condition. We have also come to find out that she is deaf. The breeder finally returned our calls and basically said that we are out of luck. She actually said (her words): "Since we signed a health guarantee, I don't have to do anything." I couldn't believe it! She is making no effort to make this right. I am so disappointed about this whole situation. The puppy was a birthday gift from my boyfriend, and now we are both devastated because of her sickness and how we have been taken advantage of. The breeder also failed to mention a large, significant scar between the puppy's eyes until my boyfriend drive 2 1/2 hours to pick her up. Please do not do business with this breeder. I don't want anyone to blindsided like we were. Ms. King is an unethical, dishonest crook. We never wanted to give the puppy back; we adore her, and she is very much a part of our family now. But to charge us the full price when she was very aware of her sickness is wrong, and now we are literally paying the price.
