How has this man got away with so much? Faking the vets certs, Selling puppies that are not certain to even be labs, Promising paperwork, refunds, vets info and not going through with it!! ??
Why does someone not set up a 'where not to buy your lab puppy from' type free website, detailing the scams this man runs, as it would surely be more likely to show up to a prospective purchaser than this forum did ( whicj h i found when searching about JVant).

I can't believe I have only just found this thread.
I too bought a puppy from this company back in February, based in Charing at the time trading under the name of Labrador Gun and Search Dog Company. As part of the contract, Mr DeVere stated that insurance would be provided with the dog for the first four weeks following transfer of ownership. Well, needless to say, the dog was ill and sure enough, no insurance had been arranged. The dog suffered from two Coxidial infections and underwent alot of treatment (£330 worth) which we could not claim.
I contacted Toby and we were back and forth, he promised this that and everything else.Nothing came of it. We have since taken this to the small claims court, but after reading this, I'm not sure how much good it's going to do?
If anybody has any information as to his whereabouts, please let me know, because I am sure as hell not going to let him get away with it.
Many thanks and my heart feels for you all.

I have no particular axe to grind however I was pretty horrified reading these posts! The correct address for those wishing to get in touch with John Vant is:
Le Haut Ligerais
I don't think the village appears on AA route planner but it does exist. PM me for further details.
Good luck to all those with sick pets and dodgy papers!
