Cypress Farm Kennel Colored Boston TerriersProof of LIES against puppy owners on CFK FAQ website


At the request of individuals wanting proof that CFK is lying or otherwise misleading people in their statements written on their FAQ page, I have posted vet records. On the website listed below I have publicly posted the vet records for my puppy Nami documenting her positive parvo and coccidia results on 1/13/11 – within 48 hrs of receiving her (bottom 2 pages). These are the same records that were scanned, emailed to, and received by CFK. CFK falsely states on their FAQ page that this parvo puppy was not seen by a vet within 48 hrs.

The several pages posted above my parvo puppy vet records belong to another sick CFK puppy who received her puppy in PA in May 2010 - sick, underweight, and severely parasitized. CFK also terminated all contact with this owner, and has yet to respond to the separate complaint posted about this incident. No where in their FAQ does CFK address the fact that they have shipped other sick puppies in the past and never returned calls or emails from the new owners.

The public has the right to know that this unprofessional behavior is not an isolated incident with one owner, or even one litter.

    hi all, i just wanted to send a thank you to blake for posting about cypress farm. i hadn't heard of them until my friend was actually posting on this site in regards to a complaint about a local business near where we live. i had been looking for a boston terrier for a while but hadnt found the right puppy because i hadnt found a breeder i was comfortable with. i read your complaint and was shocked! how can a breeder do this to an innocent puppy buyer? i was shocked both because of the situation you were in and to find on cypress farms website that there were bts of color. i couldnt believe bostons came in blue so i started more research on the breed. if it wouldnt have been for your many posts on a multitude of online mediums i likely would have disregarded cypress as a reputable breeder to get a puppy from all together just by reading this page. maybe it was the sheer amount of times you went posting about cypress online that made me delve into them as breeders further? to myself viewing you posting this story anywhere possible gathering comments from all these random individuals in what seemed like an effort to mob and destroy them on some personal level peaked my interest even more. comments made by individuals were obviously made by those who have issue with cypress apart from this parvo thing for whatever reason or sometimes the contents even seemed like yourself agreeing with your original posts? it was because of these reasons i began an interest in cypress and decided to do further research on them. in my search for a reputable blue boston breeder i realized quickly just how far above other breeders of blue Bostons they go to to be sure their puppies are of the best quality and healthiest they can be before they go to their new homes. i was not able to find one other breeder that offered blue puppies for sale at cypress prices who's puppies were not only from health tested parents but also had the puppies juvenile hereditary cataract tested clear, baer hearing tested, and pre-patella tested along with being registered with akc. i decided to complete their puppy application and an hour later we were talking on the phone about my getting a pup. i was very pleased when before going into details about their available puppies for sale they asked if i had looked into adopting from a rescue first. i have never had a breeder try to help me rescue a dog before trying to sell me a dog. we talked for a couple hours that first day. i learned so much about the breed that i hadnt known before. i was very impressed with her diverse knowledge of the breed. i never did bring up the parvo, until she did. yep she did! she asked me if i had read their faqs page, which i had. she asked me if i had read about the events of jan 2011, which i had. she then went through the events over the next hour going over any questions i had about it. the phone conversation was incredibly educational and again, she went above what i expected. i was sold on them being the place i was going to buy my new boston puppy from when i was ready. i am happy to say that i asked to be added to their waiting list and after a wait that wasn't to long thank goodness my puppy was born. the next 8 weeks were horrible waiting to bring him home but they were made so much easier with the tons of updates that cypress farm kennel provided me with during that time. i received 14 video updates, including video of her home and where the dogs all live and play since i wasnt going to be able to go to their home to pick up my puppy. that was perhaps the most comforting. i received a ton of pictures in countless numbers there were always so many pics coming in. i felt like i got to watch my baby grow up from birth in person. it was great! i am very happy to say that i got my lovely blue baby the beginning of march and he is everything i could have ever asked for and now two of my friends are currently on cypress list awaiting their puppies but it sounds like its going to be awhile as the list is lengthy. i truly thank you blake for posting about your experience because if you wouldn't have, i would have never learned about cypress. i want to thank you additionally for posting about it through so many avenues because if it weren't for your persistence to tell everyone about your experience it would have never lit the fire under me to learn more about them and i wouldnt have my gorgeous jacob. thanks again blake!

  • Cypress farm kennel — Purchased a sick puppy

    May 2010 - Separate owner, separate litter, underweight, severe worms, corneal ulcer... CFK terminated all contact with owner after shipping sick puppy.

    Krystin has yet to address anything related to shipping this sick puppy as well - just 6 months before the parvo issue. Am really curious about why there has been no mention or attempt by CFK to explain this separate incident (of the same unprofessional behavior I am speaking out against)...
