It's about time!! KARMA has finally caught up with Danielle & Charles O'Neal of Epuppypro.com, Melody Edwards of Lobopuppies.com and Vickie O'Neal Alvord of BigLo!vePuppies.com. The STATE OF TEXAS has filed a lawsuit on these greedy puppy brokers. It's time for these scumbags to pay for what they have done to all the unsuspecting consumers who purchased a sick or dying puppy from them. The VICTIMS of their CRIME are the poor innocent puppies who go through hell being imported from Russia at a very young age. The puppies are taken from their mother before they are weaned or socialized. The puppies immune systems are immature and weakened by the long trip in the belly of a plane. The scumbag puppy brokers don't bother to have them checked by a vet, they are in a big hurry to sell the sickly puppies to unsuspecting families who are soon faced with a sick puppy and hundreds to thousands of dollars worth of vet bills. All too often the puppy is not strong enough to get well in spite of the best medical care!

Here is the TRUTH about Danielle O'Neal, Melody Edwards and Vickie Alvord!!

State Busts Up Alleged Puppy Mills

FORT WORTH (CN) - The State of Texas accuses a married couple and the wife's sister of running puppy mills, misrepresenting the diseased bulldogs they sell for $2,000 to $3,000 apiece, falsely claiming to have bred the dogs themselves, and refusing to replace dead dogs with healthy, live ones.

The defendants are Kristy O'Neal dba EPuppyPro aka EPuppyPro.com; her husband, Charles O'Neal, also dba T.B. Elite Marketing LLC dba EPuppyPro.com and Lobopuppies.com; her sister, Melody Edwards dba Lobopuppies aka Lobopuppies.com; and Vickie O'Neal Alvord, an officer of T.B. Elite Marketing and epuppypro.com and lobopuppies.com.

The O'Neals operate out of North Richland Hills, Texas, Edwards out of Hurst. The state alleges:
The defendants misrepresented the health of at least four sick puppies, claiming they had been checked by vets; one died the day after arrival; another one died soon thereafter; one has "two genetic disorders which left it unable to walk or stand."
One puppy the defendants sold was ill on arrival and died within 6 weeks.
The defendants advertise their dogs with alleged testimonials from customers, but at least one such customer "made no such statements and remains dissatisfied with his or her purchasing experience."
The defendants use AKC and other trademarks to advertise their dogs, but refuse to provide AKC papers when requested.
The defendants misrepresent themselves as the dogs' breeders, but the dogs have tattoos indicating they were imported. One puppy, which Kristy O'Neal misrepresented as bred at her home and "her kids' favorite" went to the purchaser "straight from the airport immediately after being imported."
The state demands penalties of up to $20,000 per violation.

Another sick puppy

AUTHOR: Michael - (United States of America)

I was also sold a bulldog puppy by vickie only to have him die of cancer less than a year later. Vickie didnt even remember me or the puppy but "graciously" offered to sell me another at a great price of 1200.00. Just barely started looking into the legitimacy of this "breeder" after finally gathering the stomach to purchase another bullie.

There is a group for Lobo/EPuppyPro/BigLovePuppies victims.....

AUTHOR: Tara - (U.S.A.)

I am sorry for what you have been through; these horrible people have taken something that should be wonderful and exciting and turned it into months if not years of financial burdens along with the heartache and pain for those who have to sit by and watch their new little family member suffer. There are a lot of victims on here who have been trying to join together to do something to stop them and I thought you might want to check into this yahoo group called "S3PinTexas"....I think it stands for Stop Selling Sick Puppies in Texas. They are a new group that has been formed for those victims who are interested in shutting these guys down as well as possible civil and/or criminal litigation options that might be available.

NO CLUE - DONNA

AUTHOR: Danielle - (U.S.A.)

You do not even know what you are talking about. You purchased a puppy from me at the park - saw it in person with another puppy to chose from. You also brought your daughter and grandaughter - AND YOUR OTHER BULLDOG. All the dogs played for about an hour while we all sweated to death in the Texas heat. You finally decided on one and signed your puppy agreement and took the records. You also sent me emails for the following few days saying how wonderful your new puppy was doing and how much you loved her. THEN, your sister even tried to buy a french bulldog of MY sisters. We rejected her because we flat out asked her if she was your sister and she said YES. We had seen that you had gone online and written bad stuff about us. SO, we rejected the sale. However, your puppy is fine. She was clearly fine when you purchased her - otherwise, WHY would you have taken her? I dont know what your agenda is........I dont know why you would try to harm me.........I have done everything I was supposed too. I sold you a puppy - you picked her out in person. What on earth??? I guess this proves that there are just those people that are so unhappy in their lives, they want to try to make others unhappy.
