We bought a female puppy from Janna on a Monday. The puppy got her shots on that Thursday and wasn't acting right. On Saturday I took the pups temp and it was 106 so I rushed her to the emergency pet hospital. She was there until Sunday night and we spent quite a bit of money trying to help her. We had tests run, put her on antibiotics and an IV, and did all we could to get her better. She had an ultrasound and the vet said her kidneys were bad, probably congenital and that the shots may have triggered her fever but that the architecture of the kidneys was not right at all, they were malformed and oversized, and not working. She said the puppy would be highly prone to infection and have a rough life ahead. The shots were NOT the cause of her kidney malformation. She was a dog that would never have a normal life.
Janna said she wanted the dog back and would write us a check for what we paid for her. [continued below]....
..... Janna's son came to pick up the puppy and gave us a check and took the dog. The next day, Janna said she could fix the dog and that she wasn't sick and that vets don't know what they are doing. She never took the dog to her vet, like her son told us they would, and is now re-selling the sick dog to some unknowing buyer! Well, we asked Janna if we could cash the check she had written and she said there wasn't money in the account! We were told there would be money in it "ASAP" and that they were "honest" people, yet excuse after excuse, day after day, we couldn't cash the check because it wouldn't clear. We never asked for the vet expenses, just the money back for the dog, that they got back.
Now its over a month later and we still don't have our money back, she won't even answer my calls and told me to talk to her son, who won't answer us. I have a check from them that isn't worth the paper its written on and they have the nerve to say that they could have canceled the check and ignored us, like a check that can't be cashed is any better.
It is sad that there are breeders that don't stand behind their word, guarantee that a dog is healthy, and when they aren't, they take the dog back and try to sell them again to someone that has no idea that they are buying a sick dog. They are criminals as wee, knowingly writing us a bad check! Janna is a dishonest breeder who has no morals at all or any respect for the dogs she sells. BEWARE and buy from anyone but this crook!
