I'm really saddened that I have to post something like this about my puppy. I received my puppy from Purebred Breeders about ten months ago. He arrived (from Alabama - huh??) with kennel cough which should have been my first sign. Within six months, the puppy sold to me by this company stopped walking on his back two legs. It turns out after many vet and surgeon appointments that he has a genetic disorder with his two back legs that involve the kneecaps to be displaced; therefore, he needed intensive surgery requiring a 3 month recovery period (no walking). After 4 months of bonding and loving this little guy, I was devistated that the this was happening to him, not to mention the stress of vet bills piling up. This surgery will cost roughly $4,500 and that's not even including the physical therapy payments (not to mention the time off work).
I decided to buy my puppy from this company because I needed a purebred poodle due to allergies and the website guaranteed the health of the dog. It had seemed like Purebred Breeders completed a thorough screening of all breeders. This apparently was not the case in this situation. What does my health guarantee promise me in this situation? They told me they would give me a new dog if I would put down the one they sent me. Do they think a dog is like a purse? There was no way I was giving him up - he was already part of the family. That comment just made me sick. Purepred Breeders is a SCAM. I tried to make sure that that this breeder would not sell another dog (put her out of business) but I'm postive she's still selling her dogs on this website. As you can tell, I'm really upset that all this has happened with my little guy.
At the end of all this, the breeder herself ended up calling me and offered to pay $800 for "my troubles". $800 doesn't touch my medical bills. Nor does it negate the fact that this company is selling sick dogs. This company needs to be stopped. They are liars, scammers, and cheaters and are a broker for puppy mills. I learned my lesson big time. I'm hoping this message helps other people out when trying to find a great addition to your family.
