South Side Dogs / No dog and no refund!!!!!!!
My boyfriend and I have been trying to adopt a Rhodesian Ridgeback since the begining of this year. I came across the website southsidedogs.com in March and contacted the owner Frank. He promptly replied to my email and said he had a litter coming up. My boyfriend called him the next day and agreed to send a $250.00 deposit. Frank told us the puppies were going to be born in 13 days and then after 6 to 8 weeks they would be ready to take home... that would have been at the begining of May. So May rolls around, we contact Frank and he tells us that the puppies havent even been born yet but she is about to pop...ok. Then we call him the next week and he says, "well, I think shes pregnant". He says he will get an ultra sound on her the next week and call us after. We agreed. The next week rolls around and Frank never calls. At this point my boyfriend and I are getting pretty fed up. Its now June and still no puppy. My boyfriend calls Frank again. He didnt get the ultra sound and now is getting snippy with us on the phone for asking so many question. My boyfriend says lets call it a day and just send us the deposit back. Frank agrees. Well, now its a few days away from september and still no deposit back. We have called and sent Frank numerous email about our deposit to which he replies, "Your check will be in the mail next week". Our lawyer even called 3 times and still no deposit back. Moral of the story: IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A RIDGEBACK BREEDER IN OR AROUND NY DO NOT USE FRANK FROM SOUTH SIDE DOGS!!!
