The old saying, “A happy customer tells a friend; an unhappy customer tells the world” applies here. The Internet has magnified the adage with a greater number of people hearing from the unhappy/dissatisfied customer (who can effectively complain on websites).
We contacted the owner of this business as a result of seeing a puppy on his website (apparently he has more than one website and operates under the DBA of "Little Puppies" and "Pups to go".) It is easy to research the background of this business by searching on "Nathan Bazler". We placed a deposit on the puppy, but after doing additional research we realized that he appears to be a puppy broker that obtains his puppies from other breeders. We changed our mind about this puppy because we could not inspect the breeder's kennel and verify the parentage of the pet.
Further research discloses that Ohio is a center of puppy mill activity, especially by the Amish. There have been news reports, and state and Humane Society investigations regarding pet auctions in Ohio and surrounding states.
