I decided I would live with the wrong color dog as she refused to give my deposit back so I could go elsewhere. She sent us an email that same day saying pickup was November 19, 2011 which was a Saturday. Every week she sent me these pictures and I watched the pups grow. I originally was to have 3rd pick of the litter but since she switched me to a different litter it was now 4th pick...I had two pups to choose from. The Monday before pick up, she emailed saying my appointment was set for 1pm on Sunday!! I was upset as I had made arrangements with a friend to go on Saturday and we were driving 5 hours one way. I wanted a little time to bond with the pup before going to bed and getting up for work. I contacted Cindy she allowed me to change back to the original litter which had 6 females and I was 3rd in line my appointment was now Saturday.
Upon arriving there it began to snow as if it was a blizzard, the dogs are all outside and in separate kennels, she could not even remember the dogs names she either said the wrong name of the mom for my litter or was lying whose pups I really got. She went to the kennel and said here you get the last female. I asked about the other 2 and her response was one was really dark so she let that person come early and take the pup. I reminded her there should have been 2 others besides mine and she changed the subject asking for money.
I took my puppy home, whom I love dearly, but since day 1 has been begging!!! I asked about this and was informed the kids she "sits" for were feeding the puppies their snacks and lunches, also she cooked them eggs and bacon so the smell of cooking food triggers her every time!! Needless to say I am very disappointed in the breeder whom acts and looks more like a puppy mill, however my puppy is healthy and although training a dog not to beg after getting table scraps is tough and I am hoping to accomplish. She is getting darker every day but I am sure that I will always love her. I do feel that $500 and the gas and time for our 11 hour total trip was not worth the disappointments of being lied too as I was.
