I purchased 3 tiny teacup poodle puppies from James (Bruce) and Eugenia Dishmon that they advertised on www.puppyfind.com site as tiny teacup toys maturing at 3 lbs if that. She also says she raises them in her home in her living room and they are well socialized.
I ordered an AKC reg. black girl, an AKC phantom boy that was to mature about 2 lbs, a CKC reg red girl to mature between 3-4 lbs. I kept in contact with her by email as I did my payment plan and the puppies shipped Feb. 7, 2009. After she shipped dogs, I got an email telling me the black girl couldn't ship because she had a health problem, so she shipped me another red girl and hoped it was OK.
When the dogs arrived the phantom was 4 lbs and a small toy and the red girls were 4.5 lbs and 6.5 lbs and larger toys. I notified her immediately by email I was shipping them back and she told me she does not accept dogs back and does not do refunds for any reason. After I had paid her $3400 +$350 shipping she emailed me a sales contract saying she does not guarantee size or color or do refunds but by then I had already paid her all the money. I did not sign the contract she emailed, I just emailed her saying I would not hold her responsible for anything beyond her control.
The dogs she shipped me do not look anything like the pics I received by email when I bought the dogs. I received kennel raised dogs that were scared to death of people, that no one had even started to house train. I have always left food down at all times for my dogs, but I cannot do that now because these dogs gobble the food down like they are starving and eat until they get sick. In addition, they all had ear mites and she knew it and shipped anyway passing them along to the other animals in my house.
The dogs were advertised as registered dogs and did not arrive with papers. It has taken a month of hassle, while she filed for the paperwork after I bugged her about it even though she knew the puppies would ship for 3 months. I finally got the papers 6 weeks after the puppies arrived. Eugenia Dishmon lost her AKC registration for 10 years but still sells AKC dogs under her husbands name. This breeder is a bait and switch breeder, using fraudulent advertising on the puppy find site emphasizing tiny teacups to charge high prices. I have every email that transpired between us and the pics she sent me for your review if you wish. She will not answer her phone or respond to my emails now.Beware of this breeder she runs a puppy mill.
