Complaint Review: Walker English Bulldogs
In March 2014 I contacted Walker English Bulldogs about purchasing a pup. I asked if their dogs were OFA tested (Genetic Testing) and Tracy Walker replied and told me that they weren't but that their dogs were heathy and that I could contact their vet to inquire about their health. I took her word for it and put down a $500.00 deposit down for a pup. Later on I paid the balance for a total of $2,350.
Their health gurantee states that their dogs are free of hereditary & congenital issues at time of sale (not true) And that Cherry Eye and Eyelid Surgery are excluded ( I later figured that this was odd I'm sure they have a known eye issue in their bloodlines possibly ectropian). When Tracy Walker flew the puppy to me April 22nd. I noticed that the lower eyelids were abnomally drooping. And the puppies nostrils were pinched almost closed. When I had my puppy examined she was diagnosed with "Stenotic Nares" this condition is hereditary and congenital, something the puppy is born with.
I informed Tracy of the diagnosis and she stated that she would not have sold me the puppy if she had known that it had hereditary defects. I informed her that I wanted a refund. She declined and only offerd me a puppy (Which they dont have and why would I want one when this is hereditary) or she would "assist in the cost of surgery" Both of which are unacceptable to me, especially because I wanted to have the option to breed the dog in a couple years. I cant do that responsibly when it has hereditary defects.
Clearly with Walker English Bulldogs this was a breach of contract by selling me a puppy with hereditary issues. They have ignored my last email. These are not reputable breeders I strongly urge others to go to a reputable breeder that does genetic testing. They have scammed me out of $2,350 don't be their next victim!
