Starview Kennel Bad German Shepherd Breeder Taylorsville Kentucky
I have had a personal experience with Starview Kennel. Carolyn Mills is a horrible breeder. She has been known to flip dogs for profit. She also breeds/owns American Bulldogs. She wants to act like she knows what she is doing, but she is really only a google expert of both breeds. When I wanted to pick up a puppy from a prior breeding, it was my understanding that it was perfectly acceptable for me to pick the puppy up from her house so that I could also see how the parents were and their temperaments. When I was on my way, Carolyn called me and informed me that I would have to meet her elsewhere and that I couldn't pick the puppy up at her house. After this, it sounded fishy to me. Why would she not want me to show up at her place? What did she have to hide?
I have also talked with several other people that have had personal experiences with her as well. Apparently she has done several other people like this. She also will not honor her puppies's health/hip guarantee should something come up. One person that I talked to said that they bought a puppy from Starview, only to take her to the vet the next day and discovered the puppy had a congenital heart defect. When Starview was contacted about the problem, she ignored the person for several days and then once she finally did contact them back she would not offer either a refund or replacement puppy but denied the fact that the puppy had a heart condition, even though she was sent the written report to the poor health of the puppy from this person's veterinarian. She does not do as much health testing on her breeding dogs as she should, or this puppy would have never been produced.
Also, another person has bought a puppy from Carolyn and he has developed crippling hip and elbow dysplasia by the age of 9 months old. No puppy should ever have to go through this and this couple is paying out the money for hip replacement. Carolyn/Starview has yet to offer a replacement puppy for these people and have been sent the copies of the xrays from the veterinarian and has a written diagnosis from their vet. Beware of this breeder and also be careful of any other breeders in the area. I have been made aware that Starview also does really close business with another breeder in the same town, so be aware of who you are buying from.
