My Bodyguard German Shepard dogs WARNING Bait and switch scam! Marengo Illinois
My wife and I viewed several dog breeders in Illinois in hopes of purchasing a German Shepard. We contacted the owner of the Company, (Julie), and arranged to drive to their facilicty the next day. Upon arrival we were immediatly offered to enroll into their dog training classes. We still have'nt seen the dog we came for. The different sales pressure continued while we waited 30 minutes to view the puppie for purchase. Finally we were given time to spend with the dog while we waited to sigh purchase contract. Now the cost of their dogs are, as quoted, 1800- 2200 and 2500 for first pick. We were quoted the highest amount due to it being the last male ( apparently the rules change) and it being an imported dog. Upon signing the purchase of the dog, the price started to go up. 175.00 for tax and before she continued to keep adding services, I interrupted and asked " what happened to the agreed price of 2500 out the door? Now this is a dog not a corvette. She jumped to her feet and began to verbally attack me over my questioning the price change and rising. I explained this is business, now we traveled 2 hours in an ice storm to get there, why the increase? She then grabbed all the dogs paperwork and ordered us off the property in front of approximately 30 other customers. Now my wife is crying and I give in and tell her, OK I will pay the higher amount. She still ordered us out of the building Qoute! My people love me, they don't question me. Well were I come from, my people love me too. What does that have to do with the price of the dog? Still the order remained, GET OUT! We are senior citizens and traveled along way to spend 3000.00 this is not fair labor practice to anyone. Beware, BAIT and SWITCH !
