Belkennels Informative - Please read if you are considering buying a puppy from Belkennels
REWEY, WISCONSIN -- I would like to share my experience with Belkennels.
I bought a Goldendoodle puppy from Dan in October of 2009. Upon arriving, Dan met us with my puppy and we didn't move from his driveway. I noticed other puppies that he was breeding were walking around in an inch or two of mud. I wanted to see the siblings of my puppy, but he informed us they were all sold even though I looked online a couple days later and there was still one for sale.
The morning after we picked her up she sneezed up a worm. It's normal when puppies have worms to poop them out, but when worms are coming out of the puppies mouth that isn't good. This is my first puppy so I freaked out and called Dan. He informed me to just go to Farm and Fleet and get a pill. I did that but she was pooping out so many worms I was concerned. The next day (two days after picking her up) I went to the vet. They informed me that she had a severe case of worms and was underweight. The vet gave my puppy a stronger pill then the ones you buy from Farm and Fleet. I was so disappointed and upset I wrote Dan explaining what happened and if we would refund my vet bill because I didn't expect having my puppy for two days and running her to the vet. Dan did send me a check for $25, but that didn't even cover half of the vet bill.
This last Saturday morning, my puppy started pooping worms again. I was shocked. We had been to the vet three weeks ago and they had checked her poop for the worms and she was clear. I called the vet immediately and made an appointment for later in the morning. The vet said that usually puppies get rid of the worms right away but since she had worms so severe that's probably why she got the worms again.
I love my puppy to death. This was my first puppy and dealing with the worms have not been a pleasant experience. My puppy is still underweight because of the worms. It is heartbreaking to know that she has worms inside her and they are taking her nutrients. I wrote this review to let people know what to expect if they decide to buy a puppy from Belkennels. If I would have read a review like this before I was considering buying a puppy from him, I would have passed it by.
