Hip Dysplasia, Contract Non Compliance
BOWLING GREEN, INDIANA -- My family found her website and it looked great, I read her guest book checking out what people had to say and things looked on the up and up. We drove two hours to purchase our new puppy. For 800 dollars we were to get our female. When we arrived it looked nothing like the website, the owner had just gotten horses that were being checked by a ferrier. The grass was extremely tall, too tall for dogs to be in due to ticks, fleas etc. You could barely see them, the mastiffs were all in a small 'house" and we could not go in. The father was on another property because he was owned by a family member. Only the mother was inside with the pups, she was pretty skinny looking for a new mama. She claims they all take turns being inside to be socialized but I find that hard to believe. I understand they would tear up the house. The pics on the site are outdated, don't be fooled. We took the pup because we wanted to give her a home, she had a strange parasite, covered in fleas to a point it was unhealthy at five months she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. We notified her of the puppy guarantee and she claimed that she had no puppies at this time, OK, she has been horrible about getting back to us, we even did certified mail. I recently took my dog back to the vet because of behavior issues, apparently she is in the advanced stages of hip dysplasia and is on constant pain meds. She was only given about a year if that on being able to walk. I am sick, this is my baby, I am so tired of people not giving a damn and living on the backs of defenseless animals. SHE HAS TO KNOW ABOUT THE Dysplasia. its a genetic defect, it is bred into these dogs. I will not be played a fool. I do not want any more animals to suffer or any more owners to have to go through what we are. She needs to be stopped.
