Cypress farm kennel — Bad breeder
BEWARE BAD BREEDER!!! I purchased 2 colored Boston Terrier puppies from Linda Johansen and daughter Krystin Johansen of Cypress Farm Kennel in Mathis, Texas, that I received on 1/11/11. The blue female was already vomiting and had severe, constant diarrhea as soon as I picked them up at the airport, and tested positive for both parvovirus and coccidia parasites within 48 hrs. Due to her critical condition upon arrival, my vet confirmed that she had been suffering from active parvo infection for a minimum of 2 days before being shipped. After emailing all vet records to Krystin, she eventually refunded me the cost of the first dying puppy. When I asked for a refund for the lilac male puppy, who was also infected before being shipped, in order to have him hospitalized, the Johansens terminated all contact via phone, text, and email. I have not heard from them since, and they have not responded to the BBB complaint that I filed against them. In my experience I have found that Cypress Farm Kennel is NOT the “reputable” breeder that they make themselves appear to be on their website and online, as I have evidence proving that they knowingly shipped me parvo infected and parasitized puppies that were obviously not “healthy” – as CFK had guaranteed in their contract.
A third puppy from the same litter was shipped to another state in active parvovirus at the same time, and another CFK puppy owner has contacted me after receiving her puppy NEARLY dead with pneumonia, without a health certificate, and so severely parasitized by worms that they were “coming out of both ends” and had infested all of her major organs. (I have veterinary documentation for all of these claims, and am therefore not liable for any form of slander or libel.) Cypress Farm Kennel has also bred and sold Australian cattle dogs, miniature pinschers, French bulldogs, basset hounds, and puggles that I am of aware of. DO NOT TRUST THESE CON ARTISTS – THEY CARE NOTHING ABOUT THESE PUPPIES, ALL THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT IS THEIR OWN PROFIT. They have knowingly shipped sick puppies, with dangerous parasites that are easily contracted by humans, to families with small children across the country. They have gotten away with it because there is no legislation against these smaller scale puppy mills in the state of Texas – yet. DO NOT TRUST THE VALIDITY OF ONLINE PUPPY SALE WEBSITES!!! The “seller” can have any bad review deleted by flagging it as invalid. CFK’s last “good” review was posted on PuppyFind in 2008. I faxed all my documentation to support my bad review that had been hidden, and quality management reposted it, only to have CFK remove all their listings off the website. Krystin just had my “Cypress Farm Kennel Parvo Puppies” facebook page removed for “intellectual infringement.” I will not be intimidated by these people or deterred by them hiding behind the internet or lack of animal cruelty laws in their state. This is the truth, and if you are seeking info on this – or any other – breeder, I believe that the public has the right to know honest information about businesses false advertisement and fraud. They used the photo of my lilac puppy for three weeks after he died as their link to puppies for sale on their website.
