Tad (Meisterhaus) and I came to agreement through numerous emails to the following terms
a.. I had to send him a bank draft right away for $1500.00 for the purchase of Meisterhaus Watchemstopnstare (Whisper) honoring my part of the agreement. Tad cashed the Bank Draft late December.
b.. Tad was to provide me with a written contract like any reputable breeder would and the AKC papers to transfer Whisper to a co-ownership until she was finished in the USA, which he has failed to do on both accounts.
c.. After the transfer to a co-ownership I agreed to pay her show expenses, food cost(not board), her clearances (hips and eyes) and vet bills....Tad entered her into shows in his name and expects me to pay for them in FEB. I get an email in Feb saying Whisper did well in the INDY shows and I had no idea as he ignore my emails about Whisper. He had told me he was busy with the sale of his business and a litter of Whippets so how could he have the time to show WHISPER and not do the paper work for me. He never consulted me in anyway about the shows.
d.. I get another email with Whisper CERF certifcate showing PPM Iris to Iris in mid FEB. It seems that she was already had her eyes tested as a young dog it doesn't show that on his Website and it was something Tad neglected to tell me. He also led me to believe her mother was clear. Cerf has advised me through emails that Basenji with PPM Iris to Iris is under breeder option D3a and can not be advertised as clear. None the less he withheld information about Whisper and lead me on about her mother.
e.. While searching the internet I find that Tad also neglect to disclose information about Whisper show history which in a big deal on it's own. I ask Tad to let me out of the deal as the lies were getting many now and he really doesn't see me as a co-owner which was the first part of the deal.
f.. I have filed a complaint with the AKC after making several offers to him. He did make a very general offer to me to total up some expenses including the show ones and send me a cheque. Much to my surprise he charged me for a set of Shows in March which again he had Whisper entered in without me knowing, secondly $740.00 for board something we agreed I wouldn't have to pay for Whisper just her food cost in our agreement. I got a cheque for $433.01 late FEB. A cheque I reurned uncashed to him.
I am very very very angry with the way I have been treated by A Tad Brooks so I am reviewing my legal options but I felt everyone out there deserves to know what kind of person this man is and they should stay away from him.
