Debarb Pointers Buck Shot Shorthairs, Bucceri Sold me a dog with a heart defect, refused to provide AKC registration papers Flushing Michigan
My name is Michael Be****.
I purchased two (2) German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP) pups from a guy by the name of Buck through his website on Next Day Pets. I did not do a thorough investigation of him before buying the dogs. I should have.
I paid him $850 for each dog, plus airfare, with the promise that the dogs were AKC registerable. I was never provided the papers to register the dogs. I have attached a copy of the credit card receipts for each pup. These pups were paid for and shipped to me in November and December of 2012.
We loved the pups. One is named Jax and the other we named Buddy. We sent them to Bear Creek Kennels on the Bayou in Slaughter, LA for training. They stayed there for 3 months and they came home obedient and well-mannered and ready to hunt. This morning, my puppy, Buddy, died suddenly. The vet told me the most likely cause was a congenital defect (there was also a possibility of there being some rare parasite attacking his heart, but that possibility is unlikely and much less likely than a birth defect).
There were no signs of trauma or poison ingestion. Buddy was on heart worm medication. He showed no symptoms of being sick or distressed when he woke up this morning or yesterday. My housekeeper remarked he was sure quiet. He walked up to her, sniffed, went to his bed and my wife found him there in his bed, unresponsive. I rushed home, then I rushed him to the vet where lifesaving measures were taken to no avail.
Since receiving the pups, I have made numerous polite attempts to contact Buck to get the papers to no avail. In an attempt to emphasize my point, I copied the AKC and Next Day Pets on a complaint. Buck was incensed at my involvement of the AKC and Next Day Pets. He claims my requests for the papers is harassment.
So after a couple of weeks (he said he needed about a week) of not hearing from him, I started requesting the papers again. And then, this morning, my puppy died. My vet says to contact the breeder to let him know. So I try to call him, text him, email him. No luck. Then I call him from my office phone and he picks up because he did not recognize the number. I tell him the tale of my dog's death, and he goes immediately on the defensive about how it is something other than a birth defect, yells at me and then hangs up.
I do not want to go through with getting a necropsy done on the dog, nor do expect restitution, as Buck has proven over and over again that he is completely untrustworthy and utterly incapable of following through with anything. I think his actions are criminal and fraudulent, so that I why I am attempting to involve the police in Flushing. After much investigation I was able to find a full name and address, as follows:
Chris “Buck” Bucceri
1252 Nichols Road
Flushing, MI 48344
His phone number is 517-677-9259.
I suspect he is bankrupt, so I have no hope of recovering my financial investment. There is no compensation for the heartbreak I experienced today. However, this person should not be allowed to peddle dogs with congenital defects and get off without anyone knowing about it. He should not be able to sell dogs as AKC pups if he does not follow through with the papers to register them. I am copying hereto a link to a website where others have shared their experiences with Chris Bucceri. Based on my experience, he is inept, probably insane and an immoral crook.
I have numerous text messages and emails with this guy as well as bank statements evidencing the transactions (attached). I have no hope of getting the papers because he told me he would only produce them if I backed off with next day pets and the AKC. I learned a lesson in dealing with him. Now I am heartbroken at the loss of a dog that I loved and invested $1800 (plus the $899 purchase price for a total financial investment of $2699) in his training and this lunatic still won't give me the papers on the other dog. He really should be put in jail. I think the acceptance of money on false pretenses is fraud. I am out $2699 on Buddy and I am heartbroken, as are my wife and sons.
I have a lot of emails and text message logs with Buck. I can produce them if need be.
