I am so sorry for your loss. we had an experience with a bad breeder. Our first dog that we got had been abused and possibly tortured. We did not know this until she started getting really aggressive with our son and other family members. We took her to all kinds of training and specialist to determine if it was something we did or not. Finally she tried to bite our son and kept trying to get him after we would seperate them. We ended up finding her a new home with a family friend that she did get along with.
Ugh, that story made me sick. I am so sorry for what happened with your puppy. The poor little baby :(
People like that need a good kick in the you know where. Why would someone breed sick dogs? What is wrong with people??
My vet has a bernese mt. dog... he is a wonderful pup. I wish you the best in finding a healthy puppy. Try getting some references next time, it's important to know other people have gotten healthy pups from the breeder.

i just read your story and i am having a hard time replying due to the tears running down my face. my heart goes out to you ! the first time we took our puppies out of the crate we fell in love .i couldnt imagine losing either one of them like that .you have all the emails and your vet to back you up .go after them and make them be held responsible. otherwise they will keep doing it. and i,m sure they knew the pup was sick. hopefully you got a health guarentee? i just really feel so bad for you. i know some very GOOD breeders of bernese mountain dogs. its too bad you couldnt have got a pup from them.
I'm so sorry that you lost the pup AND that you had to lose the pup from the second breeder. It sounds like the pup from the second guy would have been a far happier, HEALTHIER pup with a far more supportive breeder to stand behind him.
Your move to put it out there for all to see might just help prevent this breeder from doing the same thing to other, unsuspecting folks looking for a Berner pup to be family companions.
If you will contact me, I can help you how to get your site ranked and listed with the major search engines, to help get your message out there. Just some coding tricks for the page.
Good for you, producing the website to warn others. I can't believe the audacity of the breeder to send you pictures of the dog you were going to get and then send a different dog. Hello, these dogs have distinct markings.
I am sorry about your situation and that you lost your puppy. I hope that you are working with the law to get your money back and shut this puppy mill down.
well i sent her an email about her bad business practices ! and i think if several others did the same thing and she got them from all over the united states and even canada, she might re-think how she cheated these people here and make it right with them. especially if she gets worried that the word is getting out about her bad business practices and she might lose alot of business !
Thanks everyone. Keep it up keep sending her e-mails lets take her bad breeding practices down. I appreciate any help and if anyone wants to contact me pls do so. firstname.lastname@example.org I will give you hers ifn you want just contact me. also for anyone else this has happened to contact me and I will post your info on my site and pay for it. PUPPY MILLS have got to stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am so sorry to hear this has happened to you! Unfortunately it happens a lot. You also might want to contact AKC & see if the will revoke her Lic. Also you can go to www.ripoffreport.com and post your situation there. Best of luck to you! :)
