Country Club Rottweilers and Bullmastiffs Complaint - Breeder Misrepresented Puppy
BOWLING GREEN, INDIANA -- We paid $800 to Country Club Rottweilers and Bullmastiffs in Bowling Green, Indiana, for a rottie puppy born on March 7, 2010. She was one of a litter of five. We were told she was the result of an outcross rather than a line breeding. When we received her AKC papers with her pedigree, we were surprised to learn that her parents were full siblings.
We were told female dogs had only one litter a year. Now we see on the breeders' website that the same mother is expecting again sometime this month.
According to information on the breeders' website, the dogs are family raised. What we saw was a small home and lots of dogs outside in fences. Only a favored bullmastiff puppy, the rottie puppies and the mother of the rottie puppies were in the house. We were asked to pick up the puppy when she was five weeks old and we were told at that time that she had been taken from her mother a week earlier. That isn't good for the puppy, but we took her anyway because we felt we could provide for her better than the breeder.
When I last looked at the breeders' website, she had 12 pups for sale and was expecting another litter in September. We were desperate for a puppy or we would not have dealt with a backyard breeder. We hope you are not as desperate and that you will ask for your information in writing. Beware of what you hear from these breeders. Or buy your puppy from a breeder who isn't in the business of breeding just for the money.
