COCOA, FLORIDA -- I have now purchased two healthy happy Shar Peis from Curio Kennel - years apart. My dealings with Liz have left me very satisfied. She is knowledgeable, accommodating, and helpful answering all questions in a timely manner. I have visited both her property and her personal home during the adoptions of both of my beautiful dogs and have found provisions including free range for dogs not currently “Mom-ing” (as I refer to it 😊) and large individual kennels including shelters and provisions to protect Mommies and Babies. I appreciate Liz's extensive knowledge and obvious love of animals!
COCO, FLORIDA -- Worst experience ever. I saw a miniature Shar Pei I wanted on puppyfind.com. I saw that Curio Kennel had the cutest little girl from Coco, Fl. Elizabeth was eager to answer questions, but only seemed to care about payment instead of the home she would be going to. Elizabeth stated that she would be able to ship the puppy, and send all of her paperwork for $1,200. I agreed and I sent the payment via PayPal. (DO NOT LET THIS WOMAN TAKE YOUR MONEY IN ANY OTHER FORM OF PAYMENT IF YOU PROCEED TO BUY FROM HER.)
I received the puppy and she was extremely sick (fleas, vaginitis, ear infection, and skin infection) and didn't come with any AKC paperwork OR valid vet documentation.. It literally looked like you could print it off online and had no vet signature. Elizabeth also lied about the age of the dog by a month and a half. I filed a dispute with PayPal and got all of my money back after. Elizabeth had 11 days to counter file and prove she sent paperwork and refused.
Elizabeth then proceeded to harass me and say she was going to file criminal charges against me and drive up to New York to sue me for a stolen dog, fraud, and grand theft (clearly this woman doesn't know her legal terminology). Anyways, I ended up writing a proposal to receive proper documentation and I would pay her an amount I felt was reasonable, or she could take me to small claims court. She refused and was willing to pay the shipping for the dog back and I was able to keep my money. This lady will try in every possible way to scam you. Do your research! I am not the only victim of Elizabeth's puppy mill scandal.
