I eventually did purchased a beautiful female pup from the Netherlands and the process was flawless and I couldn't be happier.
One other thing people need to be aware of I have found is that many of the titled dogs in the eastern countries are titles that are bought and paid for. I have seen messages from sellers basically spelling out the that the dog will come with what ever IPO or BH title they want. It really is ashame because I do believe there are good reputable breeders in those countries as well.

She had only 2 puppies and both died before 3 months old. There are many dogs which have hips and elbows dysplasia, but they passed because they just switched the dogs at the x-ray. Vets over there are corrupted and willing to do anything for money. Those who bought dogs from those Countries I would suggest to do another x-xray here in the States and send it to OFA or SV. This is the only way to know if your dog has good hips and elbows and you can use him for breeding or not.

I think as I mentioned previously, I do not like being lied to. What I still want to know, is what happened to Ennie vom Radhaus. If anyone out there has any info, please let me know. She was supposedly not sent to North Carolina because of health issues, yet she was healthy enough to sell to me? And the post of her remains on their website, describing her in such detail that you would think she was living there!?!?!?!
There were a number of personal messages sent to me, and the jest of it all was that there have been other "problems" with the credibility of Aleksandar and following through with business. I do not know if he is so ridiculously busy that he loses track or what.
In all of this I have learned that when you send that money, have it first and foremost in your mind that you may never see it again.....so if you cannot afford to lose it, look for a reputable breeder with a history of credibility, and try to go see where the dog lives, or if it even exists!!!! This world of technology has become a scammers paradise! I know of many that have been burned on dogs right here in the US as well....if you cannot go and see where a puppy is raised, the conditions, the parents....if someone just wants to meet you with a puppy, that is a RED FLAG!!!! The dogs life is always on the line because that first 8 weeks of life is so important as to the way they were raised and what they have been exposed to, and will affect the way they will develop as far as temperament and health later in life.
Believe me, I am breathing a big sigh of relief today.....and I am thanking all that has helped me through this.
And just this moment I received a message that Ennie is still with Aleksandar. It is anyone's guess as to the truth to that.
In closing I thank God for answered prayers, I thank the ones on here that made this happen, border11 and Mr Darcy (admin) have been fantastic, and I hope that Aleksandar has learned something from this as well.

I was contacted at the begging of the year from a lady who had purchased Ennie mated and was supposed to have her brought over but a couple of days before she was supposed to be shipped she had an "accident" where she had to get stitches and he would not be shipping her.
I was found by one of her friends who did an internet search on Ennie's name. During the hurricane, our computer was fried and was down for a long time. We were unable to maintain our website during that time which was why it was still up. When I was contacted by this lady. I explained the situation and she asked that I not take the information down as proof she had been sold. I plan to remove the pictures and information from my website as soon as I'm cleared. I've just been waiting to hear back from her. If the admin would like me to go ahead and do so I'd be happy to.
I have brought over several canines through Fanino Kennel and had never had an issue until now. I did not file a report because it would have gotten by on a technicality because I was offered a replacement even if it wasn't one of equal value.
I spoke with the lady and advised her to try and persuade Aleksandar to reimburse her and if that didn't work to file complaints with those he markets with.
I'd like to address the description on our website. This is the description given to me by Aleksandar and I posted it when we placed the deposit down for Ennie. Now that the issues have been resolved I'm happy to remove the information. The last I heard from the lady was when she contacted me after the incident and she said she would let me know when I should remove the ad, but wanted me to keep it posted so others could see I too had purchased (placed a deposit down) Ennie. I was not aware that she had received any money back but I'm happy the issue was resolved. I apologize for the delayed response I'm not on here ofter but I have replied to the admin to confirm the information I was given and share with my experience.

Thank you Misteguaycreek for posting your story in the first place, wish more would too, but maybe now they will so thanks again. Glad the matter is resolved.
Refugkennel, thank you too for giving your side to this story very much appreciated.

Super Misteguaycreek! I knew after nicely explaining to him the issues a few days Ago he would rectify the situation correctly. The key was explaining to him both sides from a neutral view point. He made me no
Promises . Although as I told you thru PM I expected you would be paid
In full this week. I thank him for doing the right thing:)Everyone should
Take this as a well learned lesson and hopefully we all learn from it and
Treat everyone the way we want to be treated. Mr. Darcy always a gentleman!, and thank you for partnering this to a amicable conclusion.
