Omega Shepherds Informative - Do Not Buy From These People!
CLANCY, MONTANTA -- on 08/02/05 I contacted Omega Shepherds about purchasing a dog from them. I was told they did have one available and went to look at the dog. We were informed the price was $4500 and was worth it because of the dogs pedigree and training. We were told the dog was good with people and kids, was house broken, and had basic obedience training. We left without the dog that day. We called leah and julie andersen on 08/03/05 and told them we would like to purchase the dog, however we only had $3000. They agreed to take the $3000 and take payments on the remaining balance. We signed a contract to that effect and met them in Helena at valley farms to complete the transaction. The next day the dog barked at my oldest son and kept him from coming upstairs. The day after that he did the same thing to my youngest child. We called leah and she said "we must have done something to the dog" We informed her that we had not and asked for a refund. She said she would take the dog back, but would not refund our money. We contacted a dog trainer to help us and did get the dogs to leave the children alone, but the dog continued to have problems with people around town. This whole time the dog had "accidents" on our carpet 4 times a day every day. This dog would not stop jumping on people and would not come when called. We once again complained to omega Shepherds and were told it was our fault. We had only had the dog for a week and every behavior this 6 month old dog had was our fault. We came to find out that the only "obedience" training this dog had was heel and sit. Other than that it knew nothing. We were lied to about the dogs demeanor, training, and social level. Nothing they told us was true. We have since had to give up and give the dog back to them for the safety of our family. We were threatened that if we told anyone anything by Julie Andersen that she had a friend who was a lawyer and a judge that had one of her dogs and they would sue us. Every phone call we made we were told we were stupid and treating the dog badly.
