Our bulldog came with round worms, no akc papers as promised no proof of vaccines and other issues. I would like buyers to beware. When we received our bulldog she came with envelope in there Was handwritten letter by him saying they couldn't find her akc papers they would come in mail. Her vaccines were hand written. No real proof. And this buyer wants me take his written words? We paid 2, 100 for her. This hand written letter looks like he was in rush send dog off and just wrote anything. I own other dogs and have record of their vaccines. And with this price he wants for dog you as buyer think he would get at least that. And price he is asking you think he could afford take them to vet so buyer can have for their records that in fact they did receive them. Since I saw all this negative signs I took her straight to vet. Right after picking her up. My vet did fecal exam and she had round worms. When I called scott told him I was disappointed because we paid a lot of money thinking we get quality. I was disappointed she had worms I don't want that expose that to my children. The vet also told me she had recessive vulva which causes her to have skin irritation on her skin and will cause yeast and bacterial infections. It doesn't stop there, she pees on herself anytime we touch her she is in fear and can tell she is not socialized. Thank god I'm home mom to have time work with her. But still that's not where it ends. I have to carry 20 lb dog 6 times a day or more use potty because she won't herself. When you pay 2000 or more because he charges more for bulldogs, you don't want all these issues. You want happy healthy social dog. When I let him know I had vet letter and told him I can't physically carry her everyday. I am In fear when she reaches 50lbs than what do I do if she still won't go on her own? He did not do the ethical thing. He told me it's irrelevant and it doesn't matter. It unprofessional to me. He never admitting his wrong doing. If I had known that she would not come with akc papers and no proof of vaccines I would never purchased her. I was deceived into thinking she would have all documents he advertised. I let him know he didn't communicate it with me he said he did on paper. Yes on piece of handwritten paper after the dog was shipped. He had 5 days to tell me on phone call on text on email and he NEVER once mentioned. It took me calling and mention it. He NEVER did right thing in this issue. He told me stay with dog for couple weeks give her time. I agree with time but with no akc papers, no vaccine proof, a worm infested dog and social issues why would I want to. He never assured me EVER! He never assured me if she didn't become social and stop peeing on herself after couple weeks due to all issues and etc I will refund you or give you another pup. He told me he would not refund me. He is a breeder is clearly in for money. I have contacted him he will not refund me. He also claims these dog are raised in his home at his feet. When mine sold he already on website had new set of dogs. When breeders fast deal like this they are puppy mill or broker. Don't get hustled and scammed like I did. These are con artist. They will paint a pretty picture to take your money!

    Yes I agree to person above. She was 4 months old when we got her you can tell she wasn't socialized it wasn't fear of new surroundings. I've owned dogs all my life and never seen on like this. Anyhow if you look he has dogs for sale all the time I mean all the time and now he has Frenchies for sale. A person with so many dog for sale 24/7 is red flag. Well now our bulldog has shown signs of mange too her to vet she has demodex mange. Mange passed from offspring from parents. Meaning the parents had it. That's bad breeding. A dog with demodex mange shouldn't be breed or offspring will have it too. Just causing buyers and owners more problems. I just don't want this to happen anyone else I can be emailed for vet paperwork of proof steveblake96 at yahoo dot com

    I have nothing but a positive experience with Suburban bullies and Scott. I am a bit confused on how anyone thinks when you get a new puppy that is taken from his mom and siblings and his family and all his familiar surroundings, is going to act. Do you really think a puppy is going to not be a little nervous in his new home with new smells and new people? I would think it would be more abnormal if a puppy wasn't fearful and nervous when he was brought up to his furever home.

    Ok I see scott wrote a lie. He is bad bredder. We didn't want refund because of worms. It took month to have all worms fully gone. Anyhow the fact that he thinks this is ok is wrong. that's scary to get soecially for kids once on soil impossible to get out. And you can pick up from being barefoot and my kids live back yard. For a month we had keep her off our sil she would use pee pads. What was bad was the fear she had where you can tell our bulldog was not socialized. Anyhow and the lie that he gave her shot with no vet proof and clearly when you spend money like that you expect that! Well it doesn't end there! Today we took her to vet because she has hair loss! She has mange not the mange you get from other dogs but the mange that is hereditary! So he must have known the female or male or his breeding progra has this. So that said that means the pups will have this! Just another example about man all about money and not breeding right. Who wants all these problems? So our dog has this heriftary mange. So we have treat her and still not cure able nust treatable so she can get it again. I mean it is in genes. Anyhow I have vet letter for consumers interested in getting pup from him . Don't save yourself the headache and money. I can send you proof I'm not making this up. The balls of him to try to save his name with bs.

    No I didn't expect something special. I expected what was agreed. Akc papers, I have never received, a vaccinated dog, which clearly they didn't, there was no record of shots, and my dog came with round worms. When I spoke to the person I trusted what's they said and how they made them self look as good breeder but clearly they are not. I didn't expect anything special just what I paid for. Bulldogs are expensive so I knew that so I didn't pay more than what bulldogs mostly cost. But I went with him because he claimed dog was for champion dad and still no proof of pedigree. I was just scammed. My Emma has social issues, clearly they either abused her or didn't pay her no mind, she has been with us 2 wks and she is in fear. My pets would never act like this with anyone because they have been socialized. She use pee anytime I pet her now it's just sometimes. That hurts me see her like that. And she always does submissive move head down In fear that also makes me sad. These breeders just want money and don't care.
