*Consumer Comment: I find these reportings subjective and unfounded
I found Blairs Toy Schnauzers on the internet and after a few phone conversations with the Breeder, Amy I decided to reserved a chocolate toy female Schnauzer. When I arrived to pick up my new puppy she refused to let me see the parents or the kennels. I wanted to see how my puppy was raised and socialized but she declined and made excuses that the dogs were not groomed. I was about to turn around and leave when she told her husband to get the Mommy of my little puppy. I guess she did not want to lose out on the sales which I was about to cancel. She ordered her husband to get the correct Mommy out.
Once I saw the mother I knew right away that this was not the same dog as she had posted on the website . Amy said that her husband did not know the dogs well enough and she told him which dog to get. When he returned the second time he held up a female dog that did not look like the website picture either. She was all matted up and the smell from urine and feces was unbearable . Then he brought out the supposedly Father of my puppy and he looked in much worse shape than what the mother of my baby did. I could not believe that it was the same dog as she had posted on her website. I could not even tell whether it was a miniature schnauzer or what. The poor little guy must not have had a grooming or bath in at least 8 month or longer. FECES was caked in his his matted fur.
I was speechless. The sad part that during the whole time I was holding my tiny new puppy tight against my chest and I knew better not to buy her from such a horrific breeder. My brain told me to run as fast as I could but my heart did not allow for me to leave this helpless little puppy another minute longer in such horrendous living conditions. This little puppy was just shivering with fear because it had not been handled or loved they way a puppy should have been.
Amy (in her late sixties) told me that she had over 50 dogs and no one to help her with the care. I asked her why she would have more dogs than what could handle and her response was "Why Not" I Never should have gotten my little Miniature Toy Schnauzer, Molly, from BLAIRS TOY SCHNAUZERS in Spring Hill Florida. I felt that if I had left her there that she would have died.
From the time I first had her at 12 weeks she often had diarrhea, but I thought it was part of being a puppy. I had to take her to the hospital b/c she also had severe vomiting. At 5 months she had renal failure and was in the hospital for 5 days on an IV drip. After $4000 (not including first hospital visit) her life was saved. The vet said it was a miracle.
During her hospital stay I called Amy Blair (who was NEVER available). When I finally did reach her she was rude to me and hung up the phone.
I wanted help, answers to save my precious Molly. I was hoping to find out if any other pups in the litter has similar problems to assist my vet with saving her. I called her again and then SHE SCREAMED at me, told me it was my fault, that my Vet was experimenting on her, to take her out of the hospital, that I didn't elevate her feeding bowl high enough...on and on and on about how it was all my fault....
She told me to call her vet. I did and the Vet confessed that the Blairs were not great breeders and advised me NOT to listen to Amy Blair, but to keep Molly where she was, with our Vet.
She is now healthy, and I am writing this because I realized that she would not have survived without me. I also found out from another Schnauzer breeder that the AKC papers and pedigree are false and that Amy Blair does lots of inbreeding like father to daughter, bother to sister and so on and puts the name of a different sire on the AKC papers . I paid $1800 for her. To me she is priceless, but I hope that Blairs Toy Schnauzers stop breeding and hurting these innocent animals. It breaks my heart to hear the other stories of families who were not as blessed to save their pup.
I have included pictures of my puppies parents . Pictures were taken with my Verizon phone without them knowing. I contacted the local SPCA and filed a report against her but I don't know if anything was done to help these poor dogs. PLEASE STOP THESE UNETHICAL SCUM BREEDERS!!!! Shame on you Blairs Toy Schnauzers!!!!!
