Zoe Burba (Madison, OH) — zoe does not stand behind the puppies she sells
I purchased a puppy from Zoe Burba who lives in Madison, Ohio, when she was 3 months old, along with breeding rights for $500. Zoe thought her hips looked really good because of how she stood. We had agreed I would have the preliminaries done at 4+ months of age. They came back as Borderline Displastic. My vet said he would never save a puppy for breeding even at this age, with this rating, and to make sure to disclose this. I had originally thought I might be able to sell her, but realized that I would not be honest to SELL her. (I would need to place her.) Upon calling Zoe she said she would refund ½ the breeding rights and this after puppy has been spayed. I asked for the purchase price plus the 1/2 breeding rights she offered (even though I could not breed the puppy) OR a puppy to replace her from a different dam. She and her partner will not stand behind their puppy. Also, in advertising it says our puppy has a champion for a father and he was only a JUNIOR CHAMPION from the Ukraine and also has Excellent rated hips, which is also a rating from the Ukraine, not from OFA in our own country.
