       We Purchased Kenia from Irina Barrett at euboxer.com on July 3rd 2010.  We drove round trip from Maine to Virginia to pick her up to avoid another stressful flight for her since she was already flown from Russia to Virginia.  We purchased her as a breeding prospect.  We paid $2500 for her and were told by Irina that she would mail us her FCI export pedigree when it was ready.  We were told there would be an extra charge of $100 for the pedigree.  We have made several attempts and offers to send the additional $100 by email and phone. But Irina either does not respond or makes a promise the papers will be sent soon and we still have yet to see them.   At first we didn't think to much about it since she deals with many dogs of different breeds and figured she was just busy or behind.  We decided to purchase another dog from her and sent a deposit. 

       Everything changed when the new dog was diagnosed by her vet with a genetic defect and Irina insisted we take his brother instead and did not provide us with any other options.  We decided we did not want to take this risk with our breeding program, why would we want a sibling of a puppy with a genetic defect in our breeding program and why would she insist that we do so.  Our only option was to request our money back because our opinion of Irina changed and we no longer wanted to do business with her.  Our goal is to better the breed and we only want to associate with people who have the same goal.  Irina lead us to believe that was her goal but we no longer believe that to be true.  Irina was unhappy about that and felt we had wronged her.  Irina did not want to send our money back but when we demanded that she do so she promised that she would by a certain date and then she stalled and  used deceitful tactics in order to delay sending our refund.  We did finally get our refund after several weeks, emails, and phone calls.  Irina was very angry about having to send us back our deposit refund so  in retaliation Irina is holding Kenia's papers hostage. 

      This is very unprofessional and unethical behavior, she is holding back papers on a dog that was purchased with breeding rights and was paid in full  in an attempt to "punish" us for demanding back our money on a dog with a genetic defect.   We have a contract that Irina is not standing by.

All you need to know about Irina Barrett

AUTHOR: J - ()

All you need to know about Irina Barrett can be found in the attached article. Make sure you scroll down to page 28 in the application report to see the pictures of what her "kennel" really looks like.


Irina normally loves to write long rebuttals on this site (and other sites) and lecture people on "integrity" (see previous posts on this thread and elsewhere on this site). Yet, oddly, she'll suddenly go strangely quiet on this thread now that she's confronted with the truth.

The following article from a nationally respected news source tells you all you need to know about Irina Barrett. Make sure you go all the way to the end of the article and read the actual report from the humane investigator. It isn't hearsay. (Pictures attached to this posting are from the humane investigator's report.)


You probably won't be hearing from Irina again on this thread...she seems to go uncharacteristically silent when faced with the facts of what's really going on at her puppy mill.

Could you please kindly provide me with your reasoning to call me a horrible person. Since it is a public website, please, only refer to the facts. Did I do horrible things to you or to the dog?

Also, please, provide me with the details of your dog's untimely passing since I have no idea who you are, what dog you got from me, why it died at 2 and if I was notified about the dog's problems and also details on the registration. I always mail pedigrees to all dog owners who request them.

The only buyer who got a boxer from me with the name Christine was CHRISTINE SITARZ, who last communicated with me in 2010. I wasn't a horrible person back then :). I also mailed the pedigree to that buyer via certified mail which came back to me as unclaimed, the letter in its original envelope with postal stamps is still with me. If you are some other Christine, I am afraid I don't know you.
Best Regards!

Irina is a horrible person to buy a dog from. I bought a dog from her and my baby is now ashes in my room at only 2 years old. I was sold the dog sick with a kidney disease. Never got her papers either.

Did not send FCI Export Pedigree Even though she claimed she was going to right here on rip off report

AUTHOR: Kenia - (United States of America)

I wanted to update and let everyone know that Irina did send me a pedigree from RKF and it even had an FCI stamp on it.  What she failed to do was have the dog in question transfered into my name and i am not listed as the owner of this dog.  I have been in contact with AKC and the pedigree she sent me for the dog i paid $2500 for full rights cannot be registered with AKC.   Irina scammed me out of $2500 and her papers.  I wonder what Irina will be doing with my dogs FCI Pedigree.  Maybe using it for one of her own dogs?  But rest assured folks, we will be taking Irina Barrett to court.  I will not allow her to continue getting away with this type of behavior.  She has just scammed the wrong person.  $2500 is way to much money to be scammed out of.

Let's attest to what you have left out

AUTHOR: Kenia - (United States of America)

You are so very good at leaving things out to make it look the way you want it to look.  How stupid do you actually think i am.  If i posted lies here i would be liable for a defamation suit.  Duuuhhh.   I have posted the truth and nothing but the truth and you know it.  You are the one who is leaving things out to try to make things look the way you want it to look.  It is a shame you have to play dirty tricks like that to make yourself feel better about with holding papers.  You claim i never paid for Kenia.  If that is so then how did i get her?  I paid $1800 for Natalia and owed you another $700 in which i did not pay you the rest because of her having a murmur.  Yes she was/is a beautiful female.  But the fact remains that my vet diagnosed her with a murmur.  You agreed to switch out natalia for kenia and i sent you $200 dollars to secure Kenia as you asked and paid the remianing $400 when i drove Natalia back and picked Kenia up.  The total of $2500 that i paid was transfered from natalia to Kenia.  So yes indeed i did pay for Kenia. 

All i have for Kenia is a one sided scanned copy which is not good enough to get her registered with AKC.  I need a scanned copy of both sides to transfer her registration.  I need more then what you sent me in an emial to get her registered and i know you are aware of that. 

Yes i do know of several different dog breeds that you breed.  I only am into boxers.  I am not in this for profit ir i wouldn't be spending the money i do on the boxers i have and for you to suggest otherwise is quite rediculous.

When i returned Natalia to you, i gave you back your signed contract to be professional and i also gave you my vets report about her murmur.  Stop trying to hide that fact.  You have it there in writing that she was found to have a murmur.  Your postings here have also confirmed the fact that she had a murmur while she was with me.  Also the lowest level of your home is what i consider the basement area.  When you walk in the front door you can go upstairs to the main living area or down stairs to the lowest level of the home that for most would be considered a basement area.  Not sure what you call it from you country but if there is cement around it like there is at your house then it is a basement.  Also if there is cement under it then it would be considered a basement as well.

Also i am not sure where you came up with pulling ticks out of the ears but i think you need to read a little better.  I said she had TICK BITES all over her.  There were little scabs all over her body and my vet determined they were tick bites.  He did not pull ticks off her.  We even ran a lyme test on her when we got her because of the fact that there was so many bite marks and we feared she may have lyme disease.  We how ever put that off as her escaping from your yard all the time like you had said though she never did escape my yard while she was here.  Maybe that was because she was not left out in the yard for undetermined amounts of time and actually spent time in the house with us as a member of our family.  I bet that is why!

There is your side Irina then there is my side which is the truth.  I could care less about causing harm to you.  My only concern is making sure i get Kenia's papers from you in which i should have gotten them before she reached 4 months of age.  That is a fact that anyone can look up per the state of Virginia.   You claim your going to contact my local police if i do not stop contacting you and making threats about posting stuff about you or contact the state of virginia about you.  You act like i am threating you with bodily harm which i have never ever done.  Also please do, go ahead and contact my local police about this issue, there is not a thing that can be done by you.  You actually owe me something and i have yet to recieve it so i have every right in the world to contact you.  LOL you really make me laugh.

Provide proof

AUTHOR: Eurok9 - (United States of America)

:) Sure, and poms, and rotts, and yorkies, and labradoodles, and all the breeds existing.

I know that you know what you said is a lie and is aimed at trying to give you some feeling of righteousness and cause me as much damage as you possibly can but lets look at the facts.
Yes, Ive bred a champion. And I hope many more coming. I also know that you know what I breed and what I dont breed, what I import and what I dont import.

1. Please provide proof that the vet pulled ticks out of her ears. And proof that she was full of them.

2. Please provide proof AND name of her genetic conditions that made her unfit for breeding, including all the necessary screenings, testing and evaluations. If it is a heart murmur, ECHO results by a board certified cardiologist with the diagnosis. On Dec 15 you wrote: I have spoken to my vet about waiting  2 or 3 months to check her heart again and he completely agrees with you.  He feels it is very possible the murmur may go away.  I feel so much better about it now that he agrees as well.  So, in order to determine what the dog had, further testing was absolutely necessary. I can provide proof she does not have a murmur, meaning she does not have a cardiac disease.

3. Again, proof. Urinary tract issue testing, results, diagnosis, relation to genetics.

4. Please provide proof that the dog was wreaking with urine at the time of pick up. I find this one particularly amusing since she was all wonderful per your emails 2 years ago and now she started wreaking of urine all of a sudden.

5. Please scan and post the signed contract, please underline the part of my health guarantee pertaining to heart murmurs.

6. Proof that I didnt want to send you the refund for the male dog.

7. Proof of those deceitful tactics you mention. Please specify which exactly tactics I used and what made you believe they were deceitful.

8. Proof that I was very angry that I had to send you the deposit back.

9. Proof that I am holding her papers hostage. As far as I know you already have a copy of her papers as proof that your dog was registered.

10. Proof that I am not standing by the contract you signed.

11. Proof that what I said is defamation.

12. Proof that I have a basement. Because as far as I know, the house was built without one.

Bottomline, you are a liar and a coward, with no morals or principals.

Attaching an AKC inspection report of the AKC representative who saw more than you did. I also applied for a county inspection by the sheriffs office and local animal control. We passed both inspections.

Take my advice, go talk to a lawyer before you post anything else here or anywhere else.

Thanx you for mentioning all that i was going to leave out.

AUTHOR: Kenia - (United States of America)

I was going to leave Natalia out of this even though that was another bad experience with you due to a gentic defect but she has nothing to do with the issue at all.  Though i can open up a whole new rip off report on her if you wish. 

I got Natalia from you the day after Thanksgiving 2009 why because you called me begging me to come get her because she was escaping from your yard.  I left my house on Thanksgiving to drive to you to pick her up.  You told me not to worry about getting her paid off that you needed her out of your house. When i got her she was full of tick bites.  We agreed that she would be paid by January 15th 2010.  I brought her to my vet after the weekend and my vet heard a grade 2 murmur on the very first heart beat.  I sent her vet records to you.  They clearly indicate a grade 2 murmur.  The reason you did not get your money was because i was not going to finish paying you for a dog that had a murmur. We were waiting to see if it would go away as you said it might go away.  Though you did keep telling me that she could be bred from even with a murmur.  How sad is that, that you think of money before the dogs health.  If that is your interpretation of integrity then your right i don't have any and don't want any either.  We exchanged Natalia for Kenia because of Natalia's murmur and the fact that she was incontinent and my vet suspected she had a misplaced urethra.  I should have been suspicious when i picked her up and she wreaked of urine.  Who sells a $2500 with out giving it a bath first?  Your home was very clean so i just thought she had an accident but i was not brought to the basement where the dogs actually live, i was only brought to the main living area of your home so have no idea how she was actually kept.  She may have been peeing in her crate every night and sleeping in it for all i know.    In 8 months my vet checked her heart several times and the murmur never left, so why would we pay for an echo when a normal vet could hear a murmur and i would not breed from any boxer with any murmur even if it found to be innocent.  We just would not take that risk when there are so many out there to breed from with out murmur's.  I feel it is totally irresponsible and unethical of you to now be selling her with breeding rights to some unsuspecting breeding home.

Now all the lies you posted in the rebuttal are considered defamation and if you continue you will be slammed with a lawsuit.  I will not even respond to such non sense about your accusations of abuse or neglect.  I can contact my vet and get more records of Natalia's murmur and post it here if you would like me to.  If anyone would like more information on Almera's Futurama aka Natalia feel free to contact me and i will put you in contact with my vet at Barrington Animal Hospital.  I have no reason to lie and i wouldn't have even brought this up but she opened this can of worms.  I just want my papers for Kenia, i saw no point in dragging this up but since she has, you now have the truth.

What boxer champions have you produced?  Or was it dobermans?  Or was it Great Danes?  How about Bull Mastiffs?  Is there any other breeds your trying to hide that i haven't stumbled upon?  How many dogs live in your basement anyway?  No wonder why i wasn't invited down there!

Is that so???

AUTHOR: Eurok9 - (United States of America)

Julie White, mysticboxers@roadrunner.com, did actually purchase a boxer from me. This is the fact. And probably the only true fact in everything posted.
I am going to copy my post from a different forum where Julie White tried to pull the same thing but was quickly booed away.

You got a really-really beautiful female from me. Still owed me $700 or 800. For months and months and months... Couldn't come up with it because of various family circumstances. I tried to understand. You told me she had a grade 1.5 murmur (great ear does your vet have) when your vet checked her out. Alright, it happens. She is a boxer. If you do some research, and as you later informed me, you did, everything depends on the type and grade of murmur. You also claimed your dog was peeing in her crate every day, every night, your vet suspected a genetic disorder but you had no money to test her. Ok, I understand, I respected your wishes and I took a 1 year old dog back. SHE NEVER EVER peed once while in my house. I gave her time to grow and enjoy life, and took her to my vet just a few weeks ago. She is murmur free and is in a perfect condition. I have yet to do tests on her but she has no murmurs for sure. Her brother's DCM test by DNA just came back negative.

None of this is in my guarantee. But I honored your wishes. I got you another puppy. Which you seemed to be very happy about. You asked for a male, but failed to pay and failed to pick him up. Months later the puppy developed a cherry eye. I could have cut it out, you would have never known. I don't work this way. You were informed and you refused the puppy. As soon as that happened, you started demanding the $700 you put down on him with strange and ardent passion despite all the months and excuses I heard from you about your bills, your husband gambling, etc etc. I had a trip coming before Christmas and told you to wait. I got you the check right after Christmas, first day the banks opened. Within 2 days my phone was filled with your threats and such. I was greatly disappointed because I never treated you in such a way and enjoyed our little emails here and there.
I even emailed you last night trying to explain that it's not the fact that you didn't want the dog that upset me, it's how you threatened me, insulted me in a matter of couple days because you wanted your deposit back right here and right now. You got it. About 4 weeks between informing you about the cherry eye and mailing out your deposit back. Now tell me, Julie, was 4 weeks worth it?

Such issues arise no matter what. People are different. With different things in their heads. But when you get disappointed in a person you liked that kinda hurts. I liked you Julie, I really did.
Here is the chronology of the events through emails:
Nov 11, 2010
Sorry I haven't sent you any money.  My husband had control of the budget and was getting us deep in the hole.  He was spending a huge amount of money of scratch tickets and bills weren't getting paid.  I found out on accident actually.  I have now taken control of all money and have just about got us all caught up all bills.  I will be able to start sending you money again either next week or the week after and then weekly after that. Julie
Nov 20, 2010
I was planning on getting Dali way earlier then that LOL  My Breeze is pregnant and will be delivering on or about January 1st.  I will be sending you the money for dali as I take deposits on her pups.  I already have a nice waiting list and I will start taking deposits once I get an x-ray at 50 days in.  I am hoping to be able to pick him up before January 13th because that is the day I am having my surgery and I won't be able to drive for a month after my surgery :((( Julie
Nov 24, 2010
How is Natalia doing?  Any news on her heart murmur?    I am hoping to be able to send you at least a couple hundred this week, my husband worked some overtime this past weekend.  I really need to hurry and get Dali paid off so I can get him home and bond with him and train him before he gets to old.  I was hoping to have him here already :( Julie
Dec 01, 2010
I am not going to have vicious lies spread about you.  I will rebut everything they have to say.  I have been to your house.  Frankly I have no idea how you keep your house so clean LOL having small children and many dogs, you amaze me with how you do it.  I have a much smaller house and it is an all day venture for me, I am always cleaning LOL.
I have said it before and I will say it again, you have a customer for life with me, of course that is if you want me LOL, since I am having a hard time paying off Dali.  I will get him paid off soon though.  Breeze is for sure pregnant so I will have a nice amount of money coming in soon. Julie
Dec 03, 2010
Dante will go to you. Dali will hopefully go back to the breeder. At the vet. Dante checked out fine. Will get him a rabies vaccination - that will be extra. Pics tonight. Irina
Dec 03, 2010
I have never liked the looks of Dante.   As a courtesy to you I did look at the pictures but my opinion remains the same, I do not like the looks of this dog.  This is why I chose Dali from the beginning.  I don't want to just take any dog because I am desperate for a stud.  He must have the attributes that will compliment my females and help me achieve the goals I have for my breeding program. At this point in time I feel a return of the $700 is what I would like to do since I did not change my mind about the purchase of Dali, he was found to have to be unsuitable for breeding due to a genetic defect.  Even if I liked Dante's look, I would not feel comfortable adding Dante to my breeding program with the knowledge that his brother has a genetic defect and cherry eye since that can also be genetic. Thanks
Dec 03, 2010
I am going to Moscow to get my son. I will be back before Christmas. I will send you a check then. Irina
Dec 03, 2010
Irina, I do not want to argue with you or have bad feelings.  I know your still home because your updating your site.  Please just either send me a postal money order now or money gram my money to me like I did for you.  I cannot wait for the money I need it now please.  You needed it and I sent it so please do not be like this. Julie
Dec 06, 2010
How long did it take you to send me money? Right. You can't demand from me to send u the money right here right now. I paid for these dogs. I also estimate how my finances are going to be. I gave an exact time frame to you.
You were struggling with sending me any further payments and now all of a sudden you are ready and eager to buy another dog. How do you think this looks?
Anyway, there is nothing to talk about here.
I have a trip planned. I will talk to you when I get back.
FYI, my webmaster updates the website and doesnt matter where I am, the site will get updated.
Dec 06, 2010
Honestly irina, I really do not like the looks of Dante.  Cherry eye, no big deal, dali has it, Dante doesn't, but Dante just doesn't do it for me.  I just do not want to buy a dog that I do not like the looks of.  I don't want you to be upset with me because of that.  Have a safe trip and I will talk to you when you get back.
----- break in communication -----
Dec 26 or 27, 2010 Money order for $700 purchased.
Dec 29. 2010

It is quite easy to resolve this Irina, just send me the $700 I sent you for Dali that I am owed because he is no longer a breeding candidate due to cherry eye and send me Kenia's papers because she was sold to me with breeding rights and I paid you a total of $2500 for her.  Wire me my money today and email me with my reference number before 2 PM or the report goes in!  I am done playing games with you.  This is just a sample of this things I have to report you for.  The list is much much longer.  Trust me, this will not end well for you.  After I report you I will plan a trip to you house with Kenia.  Since you misrepresented yourself when selling her to me, I will be driving her there to you and returning her if I do not get word from you about my $700 and her papers before 2pm today.  I will be bring her back for a full $2500 refund for Kenia plus my $700 for Dali and I will be charging you $500 traveling expenses and also boarding for Kenia these last 8 months we have had her since you misrepresented yourself when you sold her to me as registerable and with breeding right.
Dec 29. 2010 Refund sent.
Jan 2011 Julie White goes onto a public forum with a similar story. She was quickly booed off it.
Mar 3, 2011
Hi Irina, I just wanted to write and apologize for all the bad blood between us.  We both let things go to far and said thing that we probably both regret.   I have stepped back and tried to put some time between us so we can both cool down and I am hoping to mend fences with you and bring this situation to a good close with us.  Julie
Mar 3, 2011
I did nothing wrong to you, so you had no right or reason to get the situation so out of hand. You betrayed me. I cannot forgive you for that. Here is the registration for your dog. This is what will be sent to you when the originals come in. Good luck to you, god bless, Irina
Now, Julie White, your dog IS FCI registered, has an official 3-generation pedigree with no restrictions. Youve got a copy of her pedigree, originals havent arrived yet. The contract you signed specifically points out that an export pedigree can be provided as a courtesy for an extra charge. I am by no means obliged to do so.
You paid $2500 for the original dog, Natasha, failed to provide the full payment on time, dragged it out for almost a year and ditched your dog, that considered you the master for a year, without any proof of any of your claims. You did not repeat not pay anything for Kenia.
What did you have to do to get the dog pee in her crate all the time??? Have you walked her at all??? Did she get any attention from you? Was she abused? Why havent you done ECHO? If you had, you would have seen that she has no issues with her heart. Have you bred at least one champion? I have (talk about quality breeding now). Dogs you got from me are the best youve ever had. Fact.

Out of everything youve posted, I can only derive two simple conclusions.

One. A dog for you equals money in and money out. You move dogs without any issues. They have no emotional or moral value to you.
Two. You are a liar. Liars are cowards. You are no exception. You never post your name, too afraid. And you are double faced: you hate, you love, you slander, you apologize. Time to grow up. Get some integrity.
