Royal Schnauzers — Buyer Beware
We bought a toy schnauzer from Royal Schnauzers and had him shipped to us in MI. When we got Archie he was soaked in his own urine, had a parasite, ear mites, ears full of hair and digestion issues. We spent over $700 on treatments and tests for the poor litte guy. The parasite and ear mites are gone, but he still has issues with his digestion. The only food he can eat without getting diarrhea or throwing up is his puppy food. We have tried a couple of treats, but hate to put him through the aftermath when they don't agree with him. Jamie Hawkins, the owner of Royal Schnauzers, told us that she wanted us to be satisfied and the least she could do is pay for the treatment of the ear mites and parasite. At this point we were less than a $100 in and we still have not been reimbursed after several months. I have sent a couple of e-mails and have not received a response from Jamie. If you are thinking of buying a schnauzer from Royal Schnauzers be careful. I even spoke to the vet Archie was supposedly taken to and he said everything looked good. I specifically asked what he looked at to make sure he was approved to fly and one of the things was his ears. There is no way he looked into his ears because the hair was too thick and they had a nasty smell from the ear mites. Buyer beware!!!
