DO NOT BUY from Omega Shepherds!!!
German Shepherd Puppy - Complaint
CLANCY, MONTANTA -- I purchased a puppy from Omega Shepherds that was 5 months old, when the dog was more than 6 months old it was spayed and the vet noticed the hips were really loose, so we had them xrayed and the vets at the clinic said the dog had the worst hips they had seen and the pup would probably not live very long.
I contacted Julie and she wanted a second opinion for the guarantee (implying that she would reimburse me the costs if they proved to have the same conclusion) so I had another vet clinic repeat the xrays and they came back with the same conclusion. When I asked Julie about the guarantee, she told me that I had to put the dog down and send back the tatooed ear of the dog and pay for shipping and crate of a new dog. So now I was not only out the money I spent to go and get the puppy from out of state, the cost of the dog, two different vets xrays, the spaying of the dog, the cost to expedite the xrays to her so her vet could read them and the reports but, then she wanted me to pay for the shipping on the next one.
I decided not to put the dog down and let it live out whatever life it could have, we had all become attached and loved the dog (even though you could not touch the hind quarters of the dog or it would yelp in pain, this dog was purchased as a family pet and to do Schutzhund work) by then I figured that the amount of money spent was gone and there was no trusting her word! Julie led me to believe that her dogs had no hip problems and after seeing other experiences like I had, this is clearly not the case. Do not buy any animals from this breeder!
