Anytime Complaint - Internet Sale

Review by kid5lreno on 2007-07-27

Do not use this site, every thing looks great and they have a great sales picth along with very nice pictures of puppies and all types of quantees, yet you don't get what you pay for.

I was asked by my sister to find a teacup Yorkie for her solemate. This is something she has wanted since her last dog had passed. After finding and being sold, what they promised, thing have been going bad.

My Sister bad over 1600.00 with airplane fees and all did as she was told and took the dog in the same day she drove 2 hrs to Jacksonville to pick up her long awaited puppy. We had surpised her for her 60th birthday. If course she was thrilled.

All was fine until the last visit to the vet. Scheduled appox. one month afer the first visit.If you are a pet owner you know how fast you get attached. Come to find out the dog will never be a champion tea cup as the papers claim, for he has an overbite, and the only way to say it is his little nuts will never come out and the worst is he is NOT A TEACUP.

My sister is very upset, they want her to send back the used dog and guantee that she will receive a teacup, how do you send a animal back after being very attached. She has told them she can not let the dog go and will settle if they will refund her the price difference between a Full size and the teacup, which is around $800.00. SO LET THE BUYER BEWARE--

Buying an animal over the internet sounds pretty dumb to me.

Kid5lreno, while I do understand your disappointment over the little dog not being what they said it was I don't understand why anyone would buy an animal or anything else for that matter over the stinking Internet?

When will people learn that the Internet is OK for the transfer of information not for buying and selling? It's a typical trap that will always come back to bite you. The only reason people do this is because they are too lazy or afraid to go out of their houses. I can see trying to find a dog breeder on the internet but that is as far as it should go, stop buying things of the internet and life will become much better for you. I hope your little dog is a pleasure to who your sister bough it for and that it is OK. Good luck to you

Lidman, agoraphobics have feelings too.

Stew, it is our sworn duty to try and help these people that have this fear of being in a market place or even just a crowded/open space. After all they do feel bad and unsafe in such places and therefore they try to avoid these places at any cost, it is something we can help with.

And you know Stew that generally speaking, all anxiety disorders have a trigger or a cause behind them, which would explain the reason why they started occurring in the first place. Therefore in conclusion and knowing that this disorder, depending on its severity, can often lead to panic attacks and that’s where we can help. You do want to help don’t you Stew?

Thank you, Stew. WHen I was in the deepest part of my depression, it partially appeared as agorophobia. Our bedroom was my 'safe' place. I would dash over to the bathroom, spend as little time as possible, then dash back. I finally got into a study on an investigational drug, and the first couple of months, I would sit in the car, gripping the edge of the seat under me with the left hand and the door handle with the right. You can imagine what my expression and breathing were like. After a number of months, I was able to overcome my panic to go to the pier to fish,which enabled me to overcome the fear. If I had not been through is, I never would have understood what it is like, or even that it was possible.
