*Consumer Comment: Coal Valley Newfoundlands is a REPUTABLE breeder
I have spent THOUSANDS of dollars and made a hundred trips to the vet trying to cure this highly contagious parasite only to have it not be cured.
The puppy Coal Valley Newfoundlands sent me had severe diarreah since day one. The dog, 8 months and thousands of dollars in fecal testing and highly toxic medicine later, STILL has uncureable diarreah. And now has infected my other sweet puppy as well as my entire yard.
In addition, the dog Kristen Reid shipped me has a congenital eye defect, requiring $1500 surgery.
When I informed the "breeder" of these problems, in addition to the kennel cough and worms the dog had, she told me I could simply ship the dog back to her, at MY expense, and she would replace it in the future with another dog, maybe, when and if her dog got pregnant again. The dog was so sick I would not have been able to get a vet to sign off on papers that the dog was healthy enought to travel.
Breeders like Kristen Reid are disgusting, giving all breeders a bad name. To dump a sick dog off at the airport and ship it 2000 miles away knowing the condition it is in, and then to simply walk away when told there are major health problems , that she MUST have known about is disgraceful.
There are special places in hell for people like that.
My kids fell in love with the dog, so I kept it and thought eventually it would get rid of the disgusting parasites it arrived with. Well, I am about out of money and out of options at this point. I don't think the dog will EVER be cured of the chronic diarreah, and now my whole yard is so infected I can not let my kids go out and play in their own back yard as it can contaminate the soil and live for months. And then reproduce and the cycle continues.
