Syndi Edney, CBS Country Companions, www.blulala.com, www.oohlalablu.com, www.oolalafrenchbulldogs.com, Rick Edney Cuting horses, CBS Kennels Running fake ads for deceased dogs, lying to get replacement pups, giving limited papers when agreement was for full registration, not providing vet care for 30+ dogs of various breeds on her property Como Texas
Syndi Edney used my male French Bulldog for stud services. The agreement for payment was for 2nd pick puppy back with full registration since she said she did not have any cash. At first I was told the dog did not take. Then just before its due date I was informed she was pregnant. The dog had 4 pups she stated. In the 1st week 1 pup was laid on/smothered and another pup killed by another female dog allowed into the whelping area. Leaving one male and one female alive, I chose the female as my pick. Due to an emergency with my father 3 states away I asked Syndi if the pup could be picked up slightly early so I could take her to her new family. The papers for the pup were due any day, but were not yet delivered. I know they were filed and sent since I had registered the litter myself for 2 pups. [continued below]....
The day after I delivered the pup to the new family, SE contacts me stating the pup she had gotten from me (now 13 mos) is in stage 4 kidney failure. She and I had spoken about the pup 8 months prior when she said it was urinating frequently and drinking alot. I advised her to seek vet care and if it was deemed a genetic issue or diabetes the pup would be replaced. So now 8 mos later she asks me for a replacement pup, BUT would like to keep the original pup as well. At first that didn't seem odd to me as owners do get attached. I became angry when I found out that NO vet care had ever been provided to this pup since the original symptoms and that possibly the death sentence it now faced could have been avoided. When I told SE I thought she had been negligent by not taking the poor pup to a vet for something that could have been as simple as a urinary tract infection and some antibiotics she became irate at me. She proceeded to tell me what a bad breeder I was and how I didn't stand behind my dogs, etc...At this point there is NO way I am sending her another pup to possibly be treated the same way and since she could not provide any vet confirmation I didn't know if she was telling the truth.
So of course her retaliation is to send the pup papers that I had gotten as a pick back with limited registration. I am a breeder and of course I would not want a pup with limited since at the time I was not sure if I would keep it for my own breeding program. Due to us only having a verbal agreement and her having her daughter lie about our agreement (all her dogs are registered under her daughters name) AKC could not change the status to full. The new owners were heartbroken as they were already attached and faced finding her a pet home since they needed a female with full registration for future breeding plans.
During this AKC appeal process I had taken the time to check her partners website where they advertise their blue French Bulldogs and found they were showing that 4 pups were available for sale out of that litter. I assume 2 of the pups were faked pix or she had substituted two non registered pups into the litter to attempt to scam people or get deposits to use and then tell him the pups had died unexpectedly. I registered the litter and know only 2 were alive. I reported it to AKC and they claimed they could not do anything about it (pathetic).
Upon speaking to several other breeders I found that Syndi Edney was also pretending the pups she had gotten from them also had health issues and asked for a replacement pup. And with the same story of keeping the original since she had become attached. No vet records were ever offered to back up her claims and it appears to be a easy way to get a free pup and keep the first. I had no idea she had around 30 dogs at her home of several different breeds or I would not have dealt with her in the first place. She takes great care to hide that fact online.
