Wheelers Oak Hill Kennel — unethical breeder
In May 2015, we purchased a purebred puppy from Vicky Wheeler located in Milburn, OK that had a host of physical and mental problems. These problems included hereditary demodectic mange, luxating patella, and extreme aggression. After reviewing the AKC papers that we filed and paid for, we found that our puppy was inbred. After bringing these issues to the attention of the breeder, she was very hostile and accusatory. She refused a refund and refused to acknowledge any wrong-doing regarding her breeding practices. After multiple correspondences, she offered to give us another puppy, which we declined based on the health issues we faced with the puppy we already had. Our dog is now fully grown and well cared for. We spayed her, which has helped with the aggression, but she still has spells where she attacks and bites people out of the blue. We continue to pay for medication to treat her hereditary mange, which will be a life-long issue. We paid $1000 for a dog that was not as described and far below the health standards we expected. We paid for breeding rights, and received a dog that could not be bred due to her health problems and aggression. While we do not anticipate a refund, we want to share our story so other to-be buyers can make better informed decisions about where to purchase their dog.
