Irena Dersh — dishonest dog breeder
My fiance and I bought a frenchie from Irena Deresh (Boston Kennels Petit Giant) a little over a year ago. After only having our sweet little guy home for a few months he passed out from lack of oxygen because of swelling from his abnormally large palett and pinched nostrils due to poor breeding. After a scary and expensive surgery Eddie started to recoup. I had contacted Irena before the surgery and she said we could return the dog. Which is a horrible thing to say! No one would return their child if they had health problems. Once we thought we were out of the woods, one morning about a month ago he couldnt walk and started shaking and panting perfusely. I took him to the vet and after an mri and spinal tap the vet said he has an abnormal spine due to once again poor breeding. Becasue of his spine issue his body created inflammatory menengitis! His discs were swollen and pushing on his spine so he couldn't walk! He will eventually need surgery for it but luckily we can wait a little longer since he is on pregnizone and he isnt in any pain. Unfortuntaely he may not make it through surgery so we are trying to put it off until absolutely necessary. Eddie also has scoliosis and early stages of arthritis and he is only a year and a hal[censored] This woman is a horrible human being. And now I can't get a hold of her. We are heartbroken and financially strapped because our little angel is quickly becoming the $10, 000 dog. We love him dearly and no person or animal deserves to be in this much pain. Please tell everyone to never buy a dog from her. For your own sake!!!
