I purchased a dog from George Williams from Sandman boxers in May of 2011. I was told that the dog had been vet checked before he flew out to me, well he was not.
I took him to my vet the day after I got him like our contract said and my vet was immediately concerned as he heard a grade 4 heart murmur. my heart sank, as I was so excited with my new puppy that he was supposedly from "health Tested" parents and he was my first European boxer. Well his heart murmur is severe, he was also full of hookworms even thou I was told all the puppies were dewormed. I contacted George to tell him what my vet had found.
he did not seem surprised and all he could tell me was that this was not covered in the health guarantee. I paid for full breeding rights and I can not breed a dog with such a murmur. At first he told me that he would try and help me with another puppy if I did not tell anyone and kept this information to myself. [continued below]....
..... Well, after a while of me asking for my new replacement puppy he would not return my money or my calls.
Well, I did my research and was able to find 4 other people that purchased dogs from this same litter and I found out that 2 of them their dogs ALSO had grade 4 murmurs. I was shocked that such a "reputable" breeder would just ignore all this.
almost 2 years later and I still have not got a response from Sandman boxers. Well, honestly I gave up after a year of calling and emailing. I neutered my boy and placed him with a family member.
I just spoke to someone today, and they told me a horror story from sandman boxers that they just had regarding false AKC registration papers, and I just could not keep quiet any longer! There are 4 breeders out there that know about this murmur and worms litter, I just don't understand why must some people be so deceitful.
