I found this site after an attorney did some cusory investigating into this guy and sent me some links.
If you do a thorough internet search using this breeder's name (unfortunately i never did) you will find numerous allegations: ranging from various possible frauds, alleged involvement in assault, arrest for possible disorderly conduct discussions of running a puppy mill, allegations that he hired contractor's to complete home improvement projectS and then didn't pay them as agreed. Selling possibly abused or neglected dogs. One person alleges that this guy basically stole some kimd of trailer from him after paying only half of what was owed. The list goes on and on...
I agreed to buy a pregnant female from this guy and a male as well (the seller insisted that we fly her out right away as she was due to have a litter of pups) for thousands of dollars. I did ask if it was okay yo fly a pregnant dog at her stage of pregnancy, and the seller said yes and that he had been a breeder for 15 years. Although I personally paid this guy over $4600 (because the female had, "$5k to $8k worth of pups" so i'd have to pay several thousand more fore her) and an additional $1000 for shipping. I wanted my little girls to experience the joys of the birthing and raising of puppies so i reluctantly agreed).
The problems started almost immediately. He dropped of the dog in a kennel that was 2 sizes too big for the dog he used a type 700 container where a licensed vet suggested that a type 600 would have been sufficient and possibly even a type 500 could have been used. The plane could only accomadate a type 600. (for the WellCare of the dog if I or the licensed vet(s) that have treated these unhealthy and neglected dogs suggested that a type 700 container was needed I would not comment here or have a problem with it).
Before the plane left I get this overly melo dramatic phone call from the seller saying that, "There was a mechanical issue with the plane and the dogs didn't make the flight". After a quick phone call to the airline I find that the seller lied about (1) the size of the kennel, (2) there was no mechanical problem. The dogs didn't make the flight because the kennel was too big and they couldn't fit in the door.
Because he used the wrong container I had to rent a truck and drive over 5 hours to Atlanta to pick up the dogs as that's the closest they could get.
I then had to pay $175 to have an off work vet assistant pick the dogs up and keep them two nights in her employers clinic. The following morning a very distraught licensed vet (owner of the. clinic) called me to say that the dogs were unhealthy with Giardia. The dogs had severe diarea. She also complained that the dogs were very dirty, with matted hair. This is a licensed vet. She was literally beside herself.
When the seller was. Confronted, calmly, and rationally, he became irate saying that the vet was lying and that the she was manufacturing a lie about him. He went on to say that he had never had any dogs infected with this parasite blah blah blah. (The vet had never met the seller and had no previous knowledge of him and absolutely no motivation to lie). I found out yesterday that the seller has allegedly lost his license because of parvovirus and guess what else? GIARDIA!!!!
Well after picking the dogs up I could see that they were covered in feces from the diarea and needed an immediate bath. There coats we're so severely matted that they even had dread locks. The dogs also had numerous ticks.
I was beside myself so I of course shaved the female completely only to reveal a very unpregnant dog. I then caller the seller and very calmly raised the issue that she was not pregnant. The seller had obviously been expecting this call because I hadn't even finished the sentence and he interrupted me and started screaming at me he called me an s****.>
