Resolved Elegant — puppy had parisites Geardia. breeder lied about seveal things.
I purchased a Yorkshire Terrier from breeder Irene Burns in Jan, 2010.I was told by her that she had been breeding yorkies for 48 years and that she knows her pedigree lines and I could trust her, that all she breeds are teacup yorkies 3-4lbs adult weight, because she knows what she is doing and assured me my puppy was a prue bred Yorkie.She said he was healthy and would be 31/2 pounds full grown and I could mark her words.Her husband even came in the room to asure me that she had no reason to lie or be dishonest.I believed them.I ask her to weight the puppy. She said he was 1lb.4ozs.at 8 weeks old.that would make him 31/2 lbs adult weight according to the yorkie growth chart.I gave her $800.00 she then said his A.K.C papers would be mailed to me.Puppy had direaia so I took him to vet. They found giardia (parasites).I phoned her and she said she knew this and yet did not even tell me.Giardia can be transferred to humans.Giardia also will eat up the puppies nutrition so he dose not grow or gain weight. If not treated puppy will die.I spent 200.00 for his treatment. He now is 6 months old, 7lbs and still growing.She acknowledged the parasites came from her kennel, but would not pay or share expense of vet bill, even tho she guaranteed his health.Papers did not come until I contacted A.K.C and found out my puppy was never registered.That went on for months.My complaint is this.I was lied to. I did not get what I was told I was getting.A healthy Teacup Yorkshire Terrier.I' may have to moved out of my apt.because they have a size limit of 6lbs.This I told Irene.I cannot afford to move .The only reason I was allowed a pet in my apt.is because my Doctor and I felt a pet would be very good for my well being.I am attached but must re home puppy.This has caused me much stress and sadness, let a lone the money.I trusted her.
