Vicki Davis / Trafficking sick puppies / running puppy mill
This lady goes by so many names - Vicki Davis, Karen Moore, Sissy, Linda - even variations of the first and last names combined. She uses the breeder name of Marie Hall for some of her puppies. There may be only 1 lady or may be up to 4 in collaboration. But Vicki Davis is believed to be the base of it all.
My daughter and her fiancé responded to an ad and met her in Jackson to purchase a toy size Yorkie puppy on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014. She told them it was 8 weeks old and would be about 5 lbs as an adult dog. The more they told me about the transaction, the more concerned I became. She had my daughter sign a paper stating that the breeder wasn't liable for the puppy after 48 hours, but in the case of a weekend the following business day.
The puppy (Lilly) had loss of appetite by the next day. By Sunday, she had no appetite and started suffering from vomiting and diarrhea. We took her into the vet first thing Monday morning. She tested negative for parvovirus, and her sugar levels seemed to be ok. The vet also felt that Lilly was no where near 8 weeks old. The vet was at a loss, other than the age discrepancy. But, the vet did find that the lady had written on the bottle of Albon (an antibiotic for parasites) to give Lilly 1 cc per day. Lilly only weighed 1.1 lb. and should have been prescribed only .3 of a cc per day. She advised us to adjust that down and begin feeding Lilly a milk replacement. We done this, but by Tuesday she still wasn't eating and was very sick with the same symptoms as Monday.
We called this number [protected] (Vicki maybe) and reported the issue. She informed me that she had fulfilled her obligations and was not liable for the puppies health. We took her back in, the vet put her on drips and then she took Lilly home with her Tuesday and Wednesday night, Lilly passed away on Thursday, August 14, 2014 at noon, while still in care of the vet. The vet feels as if the puppy was not of mature age and was sick the day my daughter picked her up, coupled with too much medication and her little system was just too week and too far drained for anything to help her.
Miss Vickie Davis, Karen, Sissy, Marie or whatever her name hung up on us 3 different times and wouldn't answer her phone after that. She refuses to supply us with the breeders real name and refuses to supply our vet with her vets name (even though she claims that her vet checked Lilly before she sold her). So I have begun contacting her through texts.
At one point she told us that she would replace the puppy (of which I don't agree with) and then the next text she claimed she didn't know who we were and she never sold us a puppy. She has called me a con artist! She has offered restitution money over the weekend, but once I asked to meet her and even offered to sign something that I had been reimbursed in full, she claimed her attorney wanted to look over the contract first. Then she refused to give me her attorney's name and number. Although she has our vet's info and our attorney's info; she doesn't see fit for us to know hers. I have blown all 6 of her phone numbers up with text messages, to know avail. She has told me that I was harassing her. I don't disagree with that statement at all and won't make excuses but at least if she filed harassment charges on me, it would make it easier to gather all of her information.
The sickening thing of all of this is that I gave found several individuals that she has dealt with and done the same exact thing to. It hurts my heart to know that she endangers little puppies and damages people by doing this to them.
I plan to file a complaint charge on her with the Ridgeland PD and the Madison County Sherrifs Dept., also I plan to have our attorney file a Justice Court suit against her tomorrow. Her property borders on both County and City jurisdictions from what I understand.
I have also gathered that she has hundreds of dogs breeding at her home. Other sources say that she also buys from numerous breeders and sales their puppies also. I have found at least 4 other people that have had puppies die from the same symptoms after purchasing from her.
I also have documentation of all purchases, vet bills, and texts from all numbers. The picture posted is of Sweet Lilly.
She lives in a super nice house worth tons of money and no one has ever been able to shut her down. Please contact me at [protected] if you have any information on this craziness.
