Pawpatch Rhodesian Ridgeback Kennel Steve Quick, owner Puppy was misrepresented and he refused to refund the deposit Palestine Texas
We had a very bad experience with Steve Quick at PawPatch. I wanted a 2nd Rhodesian Ridgeback and my husband surprised me for Christmas with a gift to go pick up a puppy at Paw Patch Kennel, a breeder which he found on the internet. He had signed a contract and prepaid for the puppy. We drove 100 miles to pick her up and realized that these puppies and this kennel were not as represented on his website. Mr. Quick was very sharp and did not answer my questions. We carefully examined the puppy as well as the Sire and Dame (parents). The puppy did not have the typical Rhodesian Ridgeback characteristics that we desired, so we did not take her. We asked for our money back, but Mr. Quick refused to refund the money. We had to finally get an attorney involved, but only recovered half of the money.
Another reason for our decision not to take the puppy was that the dogs here were not friendly dogs and did not warm up to us – they were 50 or more all locked in very small wire pens. They did not seem to have good temperments.
We knew that this environment was not only physically unhealthy, but also yields dogs that have behavior problems. I have never seen a “puppy farm”, but this kennel appears to fit the description. Mr. Quick is only after your money and does not care about the sweet dogs and their puppies.
