I purchased a female GSD from Milos Milasinovic in April. I had seen the photos (MM photography) he had taken for other reputable breeders and had many references from both past clients as well as from other breeders I had purchased from before. When we first started speaking he was very polite and interactive. He responded to all of my texts and always called me back even if he was out at events. I sent him the money and there was a delay in transport. Due to the new restrictions, the canines have to fly with someone with them over here which was making things more difficult. She was pregnant so there was very much of a time frame. They were able to work something out and she was delivered a few days before she went into labor. Again he stayed in contact with me multiple times a week. Let me be clear he interacted and we spoke at great lengths about his dogs and program, my canines and program. It wasn't until later that issues arose. Every time I asked about paperwork though he just didn't answer at all and would act like I didn't even ask a question or would answer a different question. I had asked him to send me scans of the pedigree before shipping it so I could get the paperwork started on my end. I got a message one day saying it's been sent. I never got scans so I asked for tracking info. I repeatedly asked for tracking information but was never provided any. At this point, he would only answer my text if I sent him pictures of the puppies and he never would answer my phone calls. He also would leave voice recordings instead of text which is harder to show screenshots of but we do have the downloads. After weeks of silence and many attempts at contact, I told him it looked like we had reached an impasse and I would be posting on the pedigree database about my experience as well as reaching out to FCI and the breeding's he worked with that I had bought from in the past.
One of his past clients gave me his number on WhatsApp which he has previously said was the easiest way to get in touch with him but never provided me with it. He finally responded saying there was a lot going on in his life and that he would have everything resolved and sent out by August 17th. On the 17th he messaged me asking for Zenidah's microchip number and photos of the passport. The18th I attempted to call again with no answer so I messaged and asked if he was able to pick up the pedigree and he said yes. Now he was trying to get the x-rays for the health certificate (again I've never seen proof of this, only what he said the scores were). So I asked if he could send me scans of the pedigree and mating certificate. I even told him I didn't need the supposed x-rays he was waiting on. I have an appointment set up for her to get them done here if I can get the paperwork. I've called every other day and messaged repeatedly on all apps.
He finally responded to me the last week in August that he was on the road and would be home in 7 hrs and would send me scans then. He hasn't responded or sent anything since then or answered any of my calls.
Again I can understand having important things going on in your life. However we've been in the same boat. During this whole ordeal we've lost an immediate family member after a very painful stint with cancer. Another of our family had to have open heart surgery, our whole family got COVID, and we've had to deal with family being in the hospital. During this time I had to take breaks from work because who wouldn't. But I did let my clients know what was going on and then got in touch with them as we moved forward.
My puppies have all been sent to their new homes already. I've never had an issue whatsoever in getting my paperwork but this has just been a nightmare. I'm hoping if I post on here it can be resolved. Just so you know I did let him know multiple times that I would be posting on here as well as another site that reports scams in an attempt to keep the ball moving. This is the very last attempt to get my paperwork resolved. I have no desire to run his name through the mud or affect his business if he's going through a hard time but I wouldn't want something like I'm going through to happen to others.
