Goldendoodle — Bad goldendoodle breeder
This breeder has been around in the East Valley of Arizona (Queen Creek and Gilbert) for ten years (so she says). Well here is a long strory made as short as possible. Our family had been looking into Goldendoodle puppies for some time when we came across this breeder who had claimed to be breeding some of the best Goldendoodle puppies in town. She claimed that she bred for service dogs and family pets and that she really really loved her dogs and puppies. ( Not True) We went ahead and put down a $900.00 deposit for two puppies with this women without going to see her residence or puppies or adult dogs first. (yes My bad) I grew to trust this lady after numerous conversations with her on the phone. We then made it out to her property and were ssooo disappointed to find the condition that she was living in and the condition of where she kept these puppies. With 5 adult dogs running around covered in dirt and a filthy knoted coat. We left knowing that we would have never put a deposit down on those puppies, if we had known this. We hoped for the best and went thru with it. Mainly feeling sorry for these puppies and wanting to get them out of that (pupp mill) Finally we picked up our two puppies from her and we found it very odd that on the day we picked them up, she warned us that if the puppies started to vomit or have any diahrea to take them to the vet immediatly because of Parvo being a scary thing in Arizona. We overlooked it and brought the puppies home anyways. On the third night that we had had the puppies home they started to vomit and have diahrea. We immediately took them into the Vet the next morning and the Vet confirmed that both puppies had Parvo. We Called Carla (breeder) and she stated that there was no way that those puppies could have parvo and swore up and down that she has never had any problems with her puppies and that if the puppies did in fact have parvo, that they must have gotten it from our home. Our Vet insisted that Parvo takes 7-10 days to start showing symptoms and that the puppies did in fact come to our home with Parvo. The puppies did not nake it and Carla never would admit to anything. She instead lied and said that she has received emails from her other puppies families stating that all of the puppies were doing great. That was a big lie. We gave her the benefit of the doubt because we didnt want to beleive that someone could be so heartless. A few months went by and we were contacted by a attorney's office who had 2 other clients in the middle of a law suit against Carla (breeder) for the same parvo problem, from the same litter and around the same exact date that we picked up our puppies. We called Carla the breeder and again gave her another chance to just say sorry and yes it was all just an unfortunate event. She didnt, she still lied and said that those other families that suffered through the same thing that our family did were all just liars. I stopped all contact with her. I then spoke with 3 other Goldendoodle breeders throughout the Valley who said that they had heard about Carla and her (( 3 )) litters that she had just recently lost to Parvo. We were sickened to know that there had been so many families out there, that had went thru the same thing. A few months went by and Carla contacted me saying that she wanted to replace one of the puppies that we had lost because of her, with another puppy from her new litter that she had just bred. We had been told that she was shut down by one of her own friends who also breeds Goldendoodles. Well she just moved and got rid of all her dogs and started breedeing again from her other home with her co-breeders dogs!!! We wanted to beleive that she wasnt a bad person and that she was trying to do the right thing and so we thought, what are the chances of getting another sick dog from this women. WELL! We agreed to let her replace one of the puppies. A few days before we picked up the puppy she said that she took the puppy to the Vet and had her checked out and that the Vet was very pleased with her and cleared her to come home. That also was a LIE! We believed her and went to pick up the puppy, had to take her to the Vet the second day we had her home. I asked Carla to please send me the contact informationfor the (made Up Vet)that she had seen so that our Vet could obtain records. Needless to say she said she would as soon as we hung up the phone and she did not. She ignored my phone calls and text messages for that afternoon. She lies about there being a Vet who checked out the puppies and she lied about everything! The puppy was very bony and grossly under weight and had a severe ear infection. SHOCKER! This women is a terrible breeder and I am sad for her dogs.
