K-9 Pines Melisa Smith Puppy Mill LIar Con Artist Not Pure Breds Saluda North Carolina
I purchased a German Shepherd Puppy from k-9 Pines/ Melissa Smith in November and the first red flag should have been she won't let you see the parents, any reputable breeder lets you see both parents this is a warning its a puppy mill ( I didn't know this when purchasing) after speaking to several German Shepherd breeders they have said the same not the norm to not have papers after all this time and you should be able to see both parents. Melisa may be very knowledgeable when it comes to animals but by far is not a professional breeder. I am filing complaint with AKC and also seeking an attorney $500 to me is alot of money I saved for a long time to buy my puppy, I paid for an AKC registered German Shepherd and still have no papers. My pup is pet quality so it's not about breeding, (she goes in Monday to be spayed) but it's about recieving what we paid for.
