I bought a Boxer puppy on the Internet from Mistie Urdaneta Little over two months ago.
The early pictures of the puppy looked great, he was a fawn colored puppy with a lot of white markings, he looked a little skinny, but Mr. Thomas told me that was because he was under stress from being treated for worms.
I paid the entire amount up front $1500 for this puppy, it was agreed that if something happened and I couldn't have the puppy I would be refunded the whole amount.
When it was almost time to pick up the puppy, on the third of January, I called Mrs. . Urdaneta She was not available, instead I got Mr. Urdaneta., who was at first confused as to who I was, and then being very rude to me told me it would be another two weeks before I could come and pick up my puppy. When I asked why, he couldn't tell me and asked me to call back later when Mistie was there. Later that evening, when I called back, Mrs. Urdaneta explained that my puppy needed to stay the additional two weeks for weaning from his mother.
After the two weeks went by it was finally time to pick up my puppy, I hadn't seen a picture of him since he was four weeks old, but I had memorized every detail over the six weeks, after looking forward to having him come home for so long.
When I went to Mrs. Urdaneta house on a Saturday to pick up my puppy he was 10 weeks old, I didn't recognize him from the pictures I had studied so much, in my anticipation! His white markings were so different than in the picture, it didn't look at all like him! He was very thin and had a lot of fuzzy long hair; his coat was dull and not shiny. I asked Mrs Urdandeta if I could see his parents, she took me outside behind her house and showed me her kennel. Her Boxers were all living outside in a small kennel with only simple dog houses for shelter. It was very muddy then and the dogs were covered in mud and feces I couldn't get near any of them because they were trying to jump all over me. , So the pictures on her web site are so
fake of her so call Boxer Barn, I found were she got the photos and also found the breeder of Little Miss KaCee Clover and if you look on Mrs. Urdandetas web site that baby girl was only 1 year old when she had her babies and I talk to the breeder because the baby girl is on his web site as past puppies the same photo of her as on Mrs. Urdandetas web site.. It was a very sad experience to see these dogs living outside in the middle of winter, in the mud, and completely lonely and starved for attention. Mrs.Urdandetas didn't have a lot of dogs, maybe 10 or 12, but to me her back yard looked like a puppy mill. The type of place where sweet and innocent dogs are exploited as commodities for a persons financial gain.
I told Mrs. Urdandeta that I didn't think the puppy was very healthy looking, and I wasn't sure he was the same one I had picked from the photos. She assured me that he was the puppy I had paid for and that I would be happy with him. After her persistent arguing that the puppy would be a good pet, I eventually gave in and accepted the puppy.
After we got home and unloaded Sam (we decided to name him that) I noticed that he had been sick and had several very loose stools in his crate, Mrs. Urdandeta had assured me that he was crate trained at eight weeks of age, so I became concerned. He was almost lifeless and seemed to be scrunched up like he had a severe stomach ache. We could tell that he felt very bad. The next day, on Monday, we went to the vet to have him checked out, the news was not good. The veterinarian found Giardia and Roundworms active in the stool sample. He also told me that Giardia is contagious for people too; fortunately our children hadn't been allowed to play with the puppy because he felt ill! The veterinarian also noted a heart murmur; he said it was grade two, but not life threatening when puppies are young. Since then every time I have called Mrs. Urdandeta to tell them about Sam I didn’t get an answer, so I emailed her, and still have not had any reply. My puppy is doing better now after the medication the veterinarian prescribed. We love Sam dearly, but I feel that for the price I paid and the conditions I saw in Mrs. Urdandeta kennel, I was cheated. I am worried that the heart condition will worsen and become a major health issue as Sam gets older.
I feel as though I paid $1500 for a puppy that was of the same quality as the $300 puppy mill Boxer dogs advertised in my local newspaper classified ads. In closing the puppy is a little better, I am sure glad I found the breeder of Little Miss KaCee Clover very nice man and knows his boxers, I was put on his waiting list and just got a new baby girl from him which is in the best of health has outstanding kennels and loves his dogs ,Mrs. Urdandeta. sent him an e-mail stated if he didn’t take her photo off his web site she was going to sue him why its his photo of his puppy, She also got the kennel name strightlineboxers from the breeder of her girl from his champion Turbo. He just had a liter in Dec 2012 which was ready for pick up this past week I love my girl I got from him the clear him as very healthy and she is all ,He said she would be. I also read an e-mail to were Mrs. Urdandeta tried to get him to by a girl that she had placed and wasnt going to buy her back what kind of breeder is this? And Little Miss KaCee Clover is not a Euro another lie. Buy your boxer puppies from the breeder of Little Miss KaCee Clover, You Will not be sorry!
