Within the first month and a half of
owning the puppy I spent most of my time at the ER vet hospital and
almost lost my female Yorkie due to the illness he gave her as well.
Once all was said and done with this "incident" I was $7,600.00 in debt
February 2009 I had to take him to the vet for some kind of "growth" he
had on his behind and at that time he was diagnosed with luxating
patellas in both of his hind legs. This means his kneecaps pop in and
out and it is a GENETIC and HEREDITARY problem. For this reason she
should not breed at all.
Unfortunately, the only way to fix the
patellas is with surgery and of course it is not guaranteed. After
taking him into a few orthopedic specialists and calling most of the
vets in my area for price quotes the cheapest quote I received is for
$5400.00. So far, with the first "incident" and all of the office
visits and x-rays of the knees and the surgery quote my total expenses
will be approximately $13,200.00. This doesn't include the possibility
of having to pay for physical therapy either. At this time he has not
had the surgery since I am unable to afford it.
During all of
these months I emailed Jennifer periodically but she hardly never
answered them. The last email I sent to her I asked her for a refund of
my purchase price only no vet costs or anything.
This was her
response: If the puppy dies I replace that dog with another puppy, I do
not give refunds
what so ever. So as far as you getting any of the money
you chose to spend is not my responsibility.
So as far as she is
concerned it was "my choice" to spend all of this money on my dog.
What a horrible thing to say. She doesn't care about these animals all
she cares about is making money. She insists that the puppies she sells
comes from her own dogs but why is she selling so many different breeds
and also why does she always have pups available? She can not be a
with her own website to constantly advertise available puppies can she?
whole experience has taught me a very expensive lesson. However, on a
positive note I have learned from it and am currently learning more and
trying to educate people regarding breeders, puppymills, brokers
and even persons who are selling puppies on the side of the road, on
the internet or at parks and swap meets not to buy these animals. Most
of the time they are living in horrific conditions and being over bred
just so the people to make money from them. Please do your research
(unlike I did) before purchasing a new family member.
know there isn't even such thing as a "teacup" breed? With that being
said I will post this ripoff report.
"UPDATE" ~ This horrible person has changed her name/webaddress from hellopups.com to iHeartTeacups.com !!! ~ My 2 year old I purchased from her had surgery this past Wed for the luxating patella problem = $16,000.00 total and counting . . . YES!!! that's 16K!!! BUYER BEWARE!!!
