Pedigree Database

I thought I did my due diligence in researching on this breeder. I talked to several breeders that said he was a good breeder. I checked that he was a member of the FCI . It came up clear. I checked here and saw that he had one complaint but that had been cleared up and the guy was happy with his puppy and the other ones he got from him.

I got my puppy and was thrilled with her she is so gorgeous but there were no papers attached to her kennel. When I texted him about the papers not being there he told me that I needed to pick out a name for her in order to process the papers. Which I did the very next day. I called her Beryllium Vom Fanino since her dad was Lithium. I figured it would take a bit to get papers back from the FCI and waited. I contacted him 2 weeks later he said that papers would be going out to me on monday. Monday came and passed nothing. wrote him again this time he sent me a picture of her papers but it did not show all the entire registration missing where her registration number and her moms pedigree. But I was happy that he had registered her and he said he would get them out to me within the week. Well it has been over 3 weeks I have written him about 8 times asking him what is the hold up on sending the papers out since he has them and nothing. I am not sure why it is so hard to send papers out so I am thinking he is scamming me.

Where is the breeder located? Where are you located? How old is the dog?
Maybe contact FCI and see if puppy has been registered...

ALEX FANINO IS OUT OF SERBIA. HIS KENNEL NAME IS VOM FANINO. One dog that he is advertising alot is Lithium Vom Fanino. The puppy I got was born 9 8 2019. I have written the FCI I have facebook messaged the presdient of FCI and the vice president and the secretary.

I truely hope that he has the papers and this is all just a misunderstanding. But I have been patient and now that he is not answering my test messages this is my recourse.

With the difference in languages, there may be a misunderstanding. You said he needed a name from you to register the pup. 

That would mean that he would then send the papers to the his country's registry then they would either go to you or back to him and he would send them on to you. 

No way to do that in three weeks.

Aside from Charles Durand (who I think does business with Fanino) this guy has the most scam reports/complaints than any other breeder I've seen. I find that hard to believe there is just one complaint on here, seems like one comes about every 2-3 months and its always the same stuff. Pretty bad when you have your own FB page documenting the scams

I am really not understanding how someone gets their very own FB scam page

but was recommended by several breeders and backed by due diligence research?

always confused,
