I am writing this so that other families looking to buy a puppy do not get fooled or scamed by this breeder Mak Bostons (Alena from SK/Karen from Ladysmith).
After doing research from the little bit of information Mak Bostons (Alena) provided we were to say the least SHOCKED and horrified !!!
We typed in Google search " Alena labradoodles" and found pages and pages of Ripoff reports to missing pregnant dogs, sick puppies, Lawsuits to dogs and puppies BURNING ALIVE in their BARN !!!! We felt sick to our stomachs. [continued below]....
Here is our Families story with this Breeder MAK BOSTONS
My family and I had decided that a boston terrier was the best fit for our family and so we started our search. We wanted to buy a local puppy and when we found Mak Bostons add on used victoria (see add picture below) we contacted them right away.
I asked if we were able to come and see the puppy and her parents so we could see how they interacted with our young kids.
This was Mak Boston's (Alena) response:
"They are ready right after Christmas but i cant ship until jan 8th i have one sold to victoria and im talking to them about meeting and taking a puppy back to vancouver and if you want one. Could you help him with exspenses to drive from Kelowna to Calgary. I would think if you both gave him $200 that would cover his gas and part of his hotel." She sent us a link to her web site firstname.lastname@example.org/makbostons/ with available puppies for sale.
Alena didnt ask me a signle question about my family or seemed to care about where her puppy was going!
Alena said "i can get "SOME GUY WHO BOUGHT A PUPPY" to ship my puppy with his if i give him $200. to drive from Kelowna to Calgary"
We were so confused as to why we needed to pay some stranger $200 to bring our puppy to us and pay for him to go to Kelowna and Calgary and that we were going to pay Mak Bostons $1300 for a puppy and that she trusted some stranger to deliver our puppy to us !!!
I emailed Back with some more questions and got No reply. So again i emailed and asked if She had received my last email.
Her Reply was "NO"
So i explained that my family is really excited to add a boston to our home but we wanted to know where the puppy and Mak bostons was located and if she had any referances of past puppy buyers and where the puppies are raised and how old her children were and what vet she used. ( i know now i shouldnt have even continued to contact Mak Bostons (Alena) as they did not seem to care about where their puppies were going! But my family and I really wanted to get a puppy so i emailed back)
My kids are getting older 12 & 14, they do baby sit a little boy and girl once a month. My mom is located in Ladysmith and wants to breed Willow her blue girl and smokie this spring. She looks after my sisters daughter weekly (she is 5 years old) so they get lots of small child handeling. her # is 2502455811 feel free to call her if you would like and go see her bostons moms name is (Karen).
You can also go and talk to john Gayfer at Juan De Fuca clinic he was my vet for years and Deb at the counter can give referances for me as a breeder. John would be best just say Alena i used to have poodles and Labradoodles.
She told us that the Blue puppy was now sold but she had another pup she had got from the states for sale and a couple unregistered brindle puppies for $800. we could buy.
So I was reading her reply to my husband and we were like I asked "where Mak Bostons (Alena) and the puppy was located" and just got where her mom lived and the vet she USED to use!!! So again we were confused! So I emailed Back again to ask where you are located and what vet she used for the puppy that we were looking at buying was. ( At this Point we were feeling very Uncompfortable and felt like Alena was avoiding the questions we were asking that seemed very basic.)
When she emailed back she finally told us she was Located in Saskatoon SK and her mom will be having puppies this spring of 2014 from willow and smokie.
Needless to say after all of this we did not buy a puppy from Alena or her mom Karen!
