My wife and I both owned dogs all our years. My wife always had Poodles. We wanted to buy our daughgter her own poodle. We had one currently 9 years old.
Found a very impressive website...
I called to set up a purchase, was told the pup was $500.00...I repeated back "$500.00?" yes was the answer from David Murray....I repeated five? 1,2,3,4,5 Hundred? he said yes and that he needed a $200.00 non refundable deposit to hold the pup...cash or money order..no checks.
I should have gotten the quote in writting! I sent the money order, called him to confirm details of getting the pup, during which he mentioned the $700.00 balance due. I said "The pup is $500.00 my balance is $300.00 to which he said oh no your're mistaken the price is $900.00.
I rolled over and sent my wife to Arkansas to pick up the pup with a $700.00 money order. Christmas was near and I feared I would not find another pup ready tp go.
After taking him to our vet immediatley we were informed his ears were caked with fleas and were shown swollen bleeding insides of his ears and the pup had worms...was eating his own stool...symptom of worms.
He had been scrathing his ears at the airport in AK but my wife and I had never had a dog with fleas ever and did not immediatley recognize the sign.
We also never received the promised health reports from exams and proof of lineage.
Based on what we experienced this guy is a first class rip off artist and we were the trusting suckers.
We spent thousands of dollars getting this pup healthy...did we send him back? No way...we look at this as if we RESCUED the poor dog from this anal sphincter.
