Jennifer Fuhrman has sold many different breeds and is nothing but a puppy miller. She sells dogs that are not what she claims they are. I bought a longhaired dachshund from her and I continued to ask her how much the dog weighed. I didn't find out his true weight until the day he was sent to me. I was very upset with her for with holding that info on me. I would have never have bought the dog if I had known he weighed 4 lbs more than I thought he did. I paid $600 for a dog I had to rehome for $150 due to not being able to use him in my breeding program. He was to large for my girls. She knew my girls were all 10 lbs.
Then I figured I would give her a chance to redeem herself. Well I was wrong once again. I should of learned my lesson the first time. I bought 2 female wires from her.....Charm I wanted so I took her 6 pups along with her and they were only 2 wks old. She kept pushing Payton on me and I didn't want her, never did and I told her right from the start I didn't want Payton cause I didn't like the dog period. Since she was getting out of breeding, I took the dog and her 2 pups, not wanting them but did it anyway. I told her I would most likely be rehoming her cause I did not really want her to begin with.
She knew this....I have several emails with me explaining that to her. She kept claiming she was the nicer of the 2 dogs. How was that when Charm had much better conformation/structure and was sweeter and had an adorable face. Payton was ugly, had horrible conformation and I didn't like her. Never handling the dogs or seeing the pups until I drove 15 hrs one way with my 21 yr old son, stayed in a hotel overnight, then went to her home. WOW what a sight that was. Puppy mill heaven I would say.
The grass was knee high everywhere you looked, dogs everwhere on the property in little sheds with pens and about 15 dogs per shed. Piles of junk everywhere you looked and a house trailer that looked like it should have been condemmed. The adult dogs were in a pen that we had to wade thru the grass to get to. I didn't see any water or food bowl in site. Barely saw the dogs from the grass being so high. The pups were in a shed all by themselves......6 pups in one section and 3 pups in another section. I can't remember if they had food or water either cause I was in such shock over the living conditions.
At this time I am thinking this is a rescue mission....not a sale of dogs. I should of reported her right then and there. We pick up 2 males also that I agreed to deliver and drop off on our way home to another breeder. After we finally picked up the dogs & pups and got them all settled into our vehicle. We headed out with my son saying "OMG mom that was the most horrible place I have ever been to and all those poor dogs.....I wish we could sneak back here tonigth and take all of them out of this horrible place." As we drove we had to put the windows down in the vehicle cause the smell from them not being bathed was horrible and barely breathable.
As we stopped at a rest area to potty the dogs.....we noticed fleas, ticks and started picking them off of them. They stunk like pee & poop. The first time I held Payton I noticed something wrong with her rib cage. Hmmmm......that was not disclosed to me. 1 of Paytons pups had such a severe overbite it was a parrot mouth! 2 other pups had slight overbites also. After dropping off the males to this other breeder.....she also disclosed that everytime she got a dog from her they were in this condition. I was appalled by it. They were still picking ticks off the dogs when we gave them to them.
I take them to the vet.....of course after coming home and bathing everyone one of them with flea & tick shampoo and mind you these are little puppies with eyes just opened. I would never sell a mama dog & puppies like that ever. I was just so sickened by the whole ordeal. My vet was very disgusted with the care that these pups had. They had coccidia and worms. I had to treat 2 adults and 8 puppies with Albon. My very first initial bill was $236.61 just to have the pups checked and treated. I had initially agreed to pay her $2200 for all these dogs until I got there and saw their living conditions and so forth.
Disgusting.....that ended up being a rescue mission for those poor dogs and puppies. That is what a puppy mill looks like. I ended up giving away 2 of the pups for free cause of the bad bites and I was having a hard time finding homes for a couple of the pups. People want pups that I have bred cause they know they are getting a healthy and great dog for a lifetime. I could not guarantee these pups since I didn't breed for them and the shape they were in when I got them. I ended up giving Payton away to a friend who bred her once for a litter of pet only puppies.....
I was not willing to take the risk. I also had her evaluated by several other breeders and her rib cage was deformed. We did not know if this was hereditary or not. So he was on his own with her but I knew he would give her a great home. Next comes Charm......I find out she is a puppy killer. I was bottle raising a litter of newborn pups who lost their mother at birth and charm chewed and dug her way into their crate and killed and ATE one of the pups.....then she did it again but I caught her in time before she ate the second pup.
I was no way prepared for this to happen. I was told by many breeders that there was no way that was a first for her.....once a puppy killer, always a puppy killer. She was also pregnant at that time.....she had even more over bites with this litter of pups. I was told that she never threw over bites and that it was a fluke last time. WRONG.....it happened again. Once a dog throws overbites they always will.
So I was sold supposedly 2 wonderful breeders......I wouldn't call puppy killers, overbite throwers and deformed rib cages.......wonderful breeders!! I paid her $600 and told her she wasn't getting another penny for FRAUDULENTLY selling me all these dogs & pups. The living conditins were horrendous and the parasites & worms that I exposed all my dogs to......was unforgivable!
Then I also found out that she had already promised Payton to another lady and sold her out from under her to me. Well I gave Payton away to my friend and we agreed that Norma deserves to have Payton and she is aware of all her issues. I would never disclose that ever when selling a pup or dog to anyone. I am an honest and trustworthy breeder. I am not a rip off artist as Jenni claims I am.
She fraudulent sold me those dogs under false pretense and I should of known since she did it before to me. Also neither of the adults had rabies shots or anything. I got no health records on either of them and they were both 3 yrs old. So all that had to be taken care of. I spent so much money on getting all those dogs healthy, vetted, wormed and found awesome loving homes for everyone of them. I didn't keep a single one cause I do not breed and sell dogs or pups with issues and lie about it or with hold that kind of info about them.
She is trying to make me out to be a bad person. She needs to look in the mirror!I am not the one who has had 3 or 4 different websites. I have had one and only one for as long as I have been breeding. I only have 2 email addresses......not 3 or 4 or a new one everytime I change breeds to sell and breed. She changes all the time cause of all the complaints that she gets!
Oh and Jenni.......those so called people that you said I claimed to have died and wasn't related to........they were MY 2nd parents of 30 yrs!!!! Parents who raised me in an unconditional environment that taught me all about true love and about God and Jesus! They taught me and showed me what a family is suppose to be like....were we blood related...no.....but they were my best friends parents whom I have loved and known and spent summers with for as long as I can remember! They were in my life for 30 of the now 42 yrs of my life!
So don't you dare say bad things about people that loved me like one of their own. I was their 8th child and all my brothers & sisters embraced me like family! I flew to AZ to bury them with my family like I should have! I am so sorry it was such an inconvenience to you cause I refused to answer emails or phone calls during my time of mourning my beloved parents!! I only have my birth mother alive now. I had lost my birth father 12 yrs ago! So these people meant the world to me!!!
She can claim all she wants........she can say I ripped her off all she wants.....the truth is......she with held the truth about these pups & dogs from me and she didn't take proper care of any of them......this is strictly a money making business for her. All she cares about is the money and not the health and care of her dogs! She needs shut down! Go see her so called home and the poor living conditions they all live in there. Run down falling down trailers with little sheds and dogs everywhere you look with grass knee high and junk piles and trash everywhere!!
I hope the media goes out to her home to take a look.....she would be shut down and fined!! Come see my home......come see the love and care I put into my dogs!! My own vet has one of my puppies! Doctors & Lawyers & CPA's & Massotherapists, Dentists and the list goes on and on who I sell to. They love and adore my dogs & pups and all give me referals and come back to buy another off of me! Many have been to my home and can see the love and care immediately! Love, Truth and Honor will prevail! Lies & deceit will not!!
