I am new to this site and to the Irish Wolfhound Breed. Has anyone heard of this breeder, Celtic Crossroads?
If so I would like to know your experiences with this breeder, I purchased a pup from this breeder and it has been an absolute nightmare. I have heard from other purchasers with similiar experiences and would like to get some feed back from anyone else out there.
Also if anyone has any opinions on tacking the stomachs of IWH. My vet has recommended I do this procedure when my pup is about a year and half old to prevent bloat since it is so common with this breed. Does anyone have any opinions on this?
Thank you for your time and comments.

This is a follow up to my original message.
I just wanted to mention some of my experiences with this breeder.
I received my puppy with a severe overbite, per the breeder the pup did not have an overbite and she couldn't imagine only one pup out of the entire litter with an overbite. If the overbite was that severe she would have the pup put down.
I submitted all of the documentation from the vet and only asked for a partial refund to help with the $1800.00 vet bill to fix the tooth that is hitting her hard palet. To no surprise I have not heard back from her at all. She did offer initially to replace the pup with a new one from a different breeding, but I did not want to return the pup for fear she would be put down.
I have come across another purchaser with a pup from this breeder and this breeder did not microchip, worm, or send the pup with her AKC papers as promised. The purchaser had to threaten to go to the AKC if she did not receive the papers and finally received the papers with threats from the breeder.
I currently having my pups thyroid tested, someone had mentioned that her coat did not look that great and that at 7 1/2 months old she assumed that her full adult coat should be in and it could also be attributing to her temperment issues.
Atleast the thyroid is covered in my agreement, I sure hope there is nothing wrong with her, but I am sure if there is the breeder will find all the excuses in the world not to follow through with her agreement.
Please be aware of Celtic Crossroads Kennels in Boyne City Michigan
