Wanting to purchase a German Shepherd with a particular Eastern European bloodline, I contacted AlpineK9 in April 2010 and agreed to purchase what I was told was an AKC registered male puppy. I was required to send a $500 deposit immediately to reserve the puppy. The total price for the puppy was $1600 plus $375 shipping, or $1975. Four weeks later I received an email from AlpineK9 telling me the puppy was ready to be shipped and I had to send the remainder of the payment. Payment was sent and all I heard from them was a voicemail telling me they had shipped the puppy, never asked me for a convenient day or time.
The puppy arrived severely emaciated, weighing only 9 pounds at 10 weeks of age. It was so thin, the veterinarian was hesitant to run a flea comb over it because you could see every vertebrae. The puppy had a bacterial eye infection with heavy green/yellow discharge and green/yellow diarrhea. [continued below]....
Additionally, the puppy arrived with no AKC registration papers. This was the first time I had ever purchased a puppy in such bad condition and without an AKC registration form. When I contacted Mr. Blabla, all I got was insults and I was blamed for the condition of the puppy and even the fact that the litter was never registered. I was told I was stupid and know nothing about European dogs, even though my parents are European-born and I lived many years in Europe myself.
After weeks went by and I never received any AKC registration for the pup, investigated further and discovered that Blabla's AKC registration privileges had been suspended in April 1999 for 10 years! This was because of inaccurate record keeping, which tuned out to be Blabla registering dogs and claiming they had pedigrees they really didn't have.
When confronted with this, Blabla suddenly decided his girlfriend, Debbie Erlinger would be registering the puppy. To cover himself, he did pay his fine to the AKC and have his privileges reinstated on June 4, 2010. However, the alleged sire and dam of this puppy have never been registered with the AKC although Blabla was trying to sell this dam on the internet since at least September 2009. Blabla's AKC privileges would have to be reinstated BEFORE the whelping of this puppy in order for him to register it.
I paid $1975 for a dog that has no AKC registration and no pedigree. I had purchased this pup to one day add to my breeding program.
As of this date, the pup weighs only 15 pounds, is on meds and is doing better, but remains very small and looks like a cat. If it does not show any growth in the next month, the vet will test it for pituitary dwarfism, a serious genetic defect, which it most likely has. Its ears are spaced very wide apart and its head is very small. It's the size of a cat.
I would warn anyone thinking of purchasing a dog from this man, don't do it unless you can go there and personally get the dog. Ask to see the AKC registration and pedigree first. Have the dog examined by your own veterinarian.
Once you get ripped-off, don't expect Blabla to stand by any of the guarantees on his website. You will only get insults and threats, but you will NEVER get what you paid for!
