I found a breeder on Puppyfind.com that sells maltese tea cups.
11-20-09 I purchased a female maltese pup from a Paul and Cheryl Howard from Claremore, Oklahoma, website
http://www.pupeluv.com or http://okieteacups.com . I live in NYC. The puppy arrived sick with what I thought to be Kennel Cough as this is my second dog and am familiriar with the symptoms. She was also scratching one of her ears a lot and upon
inspection I found that the ear was filled with brown gunk compared to the
other ear which was completely clean. I notified the breeder immediately
that same afternoon when the dog arrived. Per the breeders contract I took
the puppy to the Vet the next day. The Vet found the dog to have kennel
cough, ear mites,hernia,medial patella luxation of her back leg. Breeders
contract does not cover costs associated with kennel cough (which is
understandable as most puppies catch it when they are little). However, his
contract did not cover the ear mites either and anything beyond that which
is congenital I would have to return the dog via american airlines paying
out of my own pocket (roughly another $300). I had the Vet provide medical
bills (to date it is now up to $500) in writing and also
his findings which I promply provided to the breeder the next day when I
took the pup for the check-up. In turn the breeder wanted me to ship the
sick puppy right away. Not only would I have put the dogs life in danger
because of her grave state but by law american airlines prohibits the
shipment of sick animals.
The breeder told me to just use the health certificate that the dog came
with and AA would never know the dog is sick as its valid for 30 days. His
contract does not provide refunds, only replacements so I would ship the dog
back and hope that he replaces the pup with one that is not sick or with
congenital problems. Breeder was in breach of contract as the dog is not
healthy as he promised. I flipped out telling him what morals as a breeder
does he have to even suggest putting a sick animal through such an ordeal
and only then he said well then wait till she gets better and then send her
back for a replacement. It took him 3 days to open the medical bills and
statement from the Vet that I emailed him and then started claiming that
American Airlines switched the puppies. He said the pup could not possibly
be what he sent me. 3rd day he also remembered to tell me that the dog he
sent me has a microchip. The contract I signed did not include a microchip
in the puppy. Nor did I pay extra for microchipping. He provided a chip
number and told me to run to the vet and scan my dog and if the chip is not
in the dog then its not the one he sent me. So like an idiot I ran to the
vet. The dog did not have a chip but the vet took the chip number down that
the breeder provided and contacted the manufacturer only to find out the
breeder gave me a false/fake chip number. I was promised an ACA registration
with the dog and did not get that either. I told him if the dog is
microchipped then where is the chip registration papers? He told me they
don't normally provide that documentation. Did not receive ACA registration
either which was part of what I was suppose to get per the contract. To date
I have not received any of the papers for my dog. BUYER BEWARE DONT BUY FROM THESE CROOKS!
