10/26/2009 Monday 6PM

I bought a Cairn Terrier Puppy from Nick Estatio , Nick gave his name as Nick Statio. He gave his address as 90 K Ave.  He walked out of the house on 146 Lou Ave, where I met him and paid for the pup. I answered an ad he placed in Newsday on 10/23/2009. 

When I called him about the pup, he said his aunt in Pennsylvania bred Cairn terriers & he was doing her a favor by selling the last few of the litter at his home in NY. [continued below]....


My two little girls 9 and 6 years came with me to buy the pup.  I did not want to support a puppy mill pet store.  Nick emailed a picture of the pup & said the parents were there so I can see them.  I waited a half hour to see the parents & Nick said they were on a walk with his dad. So I paid him in cash and left with two very happy little girls.


Nick Estatio is a puppy mill puppy dealer and works out of his house with Louise Hummer Estatio his mother & Harvey Estatio his father and a Daniel Estatio. There is an Irene B Estatio 275 North Ave #8 Washington PA 15301-3570.

The attachments are the many ads to sell puppy mill pups they buy in Pennsylvania and drive to their home:

I Just brought our new Puppy named Darla to the vet 20 hours after I bought the pup from nick..  She is only 8 weeks old, and has not eaten a thing. The vet was keeping her for tests.


Wed 10/28/2009 12:31PM  E-mail to Nick

I just came back from the vets office without the Cairn Terrier puppy that I purchased from you yesterday at six PM.

She is extremely sick and may die.  I am including all the records from the vets office to show you.

I would like a refund of $350.00 for the purchase of the dog to be put toward the vet bills of $1300.00 Dollars. 

If the dog makes it or not, I still will owe the vet bills.


Taking a minute, I ran your cell number 631-332-4525 on  I see you are from Kings Park and are selling a s**+ Tzu and a Dachshund puppy mill pups, quails and ducks from Pennsylvania on a regular basis. You are on a lot of sites selling puppies. 

If you refund the money immediately through paypal I will forget you name and you can go about you business.

This can be made easy by just sending the money to this Pal Pal address:   

My boss will let me know when the refund goes through.

Talk this over with your friend who was there when I bought the pup at your house.  I want you to feel comfortable knowing I dont care what you do.  As long as I get my money back, after that we are done.



Wed 10/28/2009 3:21PM

The vet just called.  The puppy has Ear mites, Tape worms that have distended her tiny stomach to 3 times the size, Intestinal blockage, white count is sky high and she cannot lift her head off the floor.  The dog had not eaten in 3 days.  


E-mail from Nick to me

E-mail from Nick to me

Listen, Just for the record iam going to be saving all your emails for proff of Threat, Harassment, and the Threat to slander my name, and Harass my neighbors. Second of all the law states i have the right to have my vet examine the puppy before any purchase price of the puppy is refunded.  If you would like a refund iam more then willing to give that to you, Upon you returning the puppy. Otherwise like the law states in order for you to keep the puppy, with a full refund, The puppy will need to be examined and deemed unfit for sale buy a Licensed veterinarian of my choice.

As of 2 hours ago, the vet at Baldwin animal hospital said he would suggest if there is no improvement by tomorrow I should put her down or I can do 2 more tests, one being an abdominal exploratory surgery cost being $1100.00 dollars.  

I will call the Baldwin Animal Hospital and give them your name and permission for them to release the puppy to you immediately at 9AM tomorrow morning.   Pick her up as soon as you can get there tomorrow 10/29/2009.

Pick her up at:  Baldwin Animal Hospital, 1864 Grand Ave, Baldwin, NY 11510  516-223-1555

Since this vet has been at this location for 20 years, have your vet call Dr Saslow at Baldwin Animal Hospital to confirm the full situation on the puppys dire health situation. This is a common practice vets do all day.

I am now requesting the original vet bill of $1284.50 & the $350.00 cash purchase of the puppy that was made to you at the 134 Lou Ave Kings Park NY residence.  This total is $1634.50 Dollars.  So have your vet call Baldwin Animal Hospital immmediately.  Also, let me know the name of the vetrinarian so I can let Dr Saslow know they will be calling. Get back to me as soon as possible.  Thank you.


E-mail from Nick to me

I spoke with your vet, who was unable to give me any diagnoises, I dont understand how they recomend putting her to sleep without knowing the cause of her illness, For all i know she could have ate something or got into chemicals the night prior. She was Healthy and Happy when she left. For the puppys sake i will take the vets word she is ill, Instead of moving her around going back and forth to my vet in northport, I will not refund anything over $350.00. If you give me your address i will send a money order return reciept tomorrow, Thats my Offer, Take it or leave it

The vet called me this morning. The puppy still has not eaten.  Was there anything that the dog ate that he can look for.  He has ruled out all other illness except chemical.  If he knew what she could of ingested the vet could possibly help.  I need the $350.00 for part of the vet bill to go further with the vet. When will it arrive?



E-mail from Nick to me

Honestly she was kept with another puppy the whole time i had her,  and the other puppy is fine, So that rules out the possibility she ate something here because they lived together. I know no one likes to take blame but i really think you should check around your house, Because she must of got into something the night you had her. Being that your vet dignosed chemicals instead of a illness or disease , The dogs well being after she left my home puts you at liabilty. I truely wish you the best of luck with the dog, And i hope she makes it

Please be assured home the pup came to was home prepared to take on a pup.  This is not my first dog. You stated in your e-mail you would refund the $350.00 paid for the pup.  When will the refund promised arrive?  I am signing the paper work in an hour at the vet to release the pup of care.  Call the vet office to confirm this.  The address below is where to send the money order. Let me know when it will arrive as soon as possible.


Fri 10/30/2009  2:41 PM


The pup was put down at noon today. My little girls are in tears.  Call the vet to confirm this.

You stated in your previous e-mail you would refund what I paid for the pup.  You would send it overnight in a money order.  When will the refund promised arrive? 

The address below is where to send the money order. I still have not received a response from you from the e-mail sent to you yesterday. When I told you I signed the papers to the vet.

Dog was Poisoned, Confirmed buy veterinarian

AUTHOR: Nick - (United States of America)

I sold a cairn terrier puppy to lori mehrkens for $350, 24 hours later i recived an email stating the puppy was deadly ill, Right in that first email stated "pay me and i will go away, dont pay and i will make your life miserable". Like most my initial reaction wasnt going to be too polite, But i decided to ignore the bologna and be mature.

So from that point on all i requested was a Diagnosis from her veterinarian or as the ny state puppy law states an unfit for sale letter before i can give back a full refund, Of which She was unable to produce. I then got intouch with lori's veterinarian personally and was informed after extensive testing he rulled out everything but toxic chemicals or poison......

In the process of the event, Lori knocked on all my neighbours doors to trash talk about myself & my family, Of which had nothing to do with the matter, She didnt ever meet anyone in my family but me..  Following, She then did a few other spiteful things and as i just came across, Posted a Rip off report about me..


Overall, Iam a HUGE animal lover and fell bad about what happened to the puppy, But did not fell i had any wrongdoing to give a full refund back. Things do happen and animals do get sick out of our contol even with the best intentions, But It goes too show that once an animal leaves your home, You have no control over it anymore and god knows what could happen. That little terrier pup was running around happy and playful as could be the day it left. Heck if it wasnt, I dont know anyone who would buy a sick puppy, But thats besides the point

I belive Lori's house wasnt puppy proofed the night the dog came home & Ingested something it shouldnt have. That is not only what i belive, But what a licensed veterinarian concluded after running numerous tests. Sometimes people like to point fingers and blame others for there mistakes, This one got pointed at me...
