Stanley " Jane Flowers / Unethical questionable behavior
Planned to purchase a puppy and breeder said they were very satisfied we were a good home and even wanted us to have the puppy over another buyer. As a responsible buyer, we requested to review the contract in advance, get references, and see photos - Jane agreed. The day before meeting to get the puppy, we had not yet received information. We follow-up with Jane and was told her phone wasn't working so she couldn't send more pictures. We only received one photo where the puppy was visible, the other two photos were of the puppies back. We were excited to see more of the puppy and share with family and friends. Then we requested that she have someone else send photos but she never did that either. We never received a contract to review or references. When we followed up, she said her computer wasn't working. When we asked if the contact would be hand written since her computer was broke, then she offered to fax it. We don't have a fax machine, which isn't common technology these days. I asked her to send the references via text and also asked if she had a standard contract or not? She sent me the phone number to her vet for reference. We called the vet and the vet did not take my call. Twenty minutes after leaving a voicemail for the vet, she called us and said, as a result of these requests and since we didn't seem to trust her she was backing out of the deal. We were very disappointed and didn't think requesting to review the contract in advance and checking references was unreasonable. Especially since we were paying $3500.00 and if not a good breeder, French Bulldogs can have many health issues. She was very rude as well. In the end this was very suspicious, unethical, and unprofessional behavior of a supposed experienced breeder. Overall, a very unpleasant experience.
