I purchased a dachshund puppy from Joe Rue on July 2,2009 for $500. He stated that part of the purchase; he would be sending American Kennel Club registration paperwork within the next month. After numerous emails and 5 phone calls, all answered by Joe. I have yet to receive any paperwork.
I am seeking a refund of $200 for purchasing a dachshund puppy from Joe Rue without any paperwork. The total purchase amount on July 2,2009 was $500.

I am responsible for not getting Mr. Doe’s this paperwork in a timely manner. I have been dealing with serious medical issues. The business is not a corporation anymore. I went on the AKC site this morning and ordered the paperwork. The paperwork takes 2-3 weeks. I will send Mr. Doe the AKC paperwork the first week of January or the $200.00

Hello, I have not had any communication with the Shasta Dachshund LLC, Mr. Joe Rue has not tried to contact me to resolve the matter about this most recent complaint. During a phone conversation in January after my last complaint against him he offered to refund my money. He has not made any attempt to make good on his promise and I am now filing another complaint against him.
Thank you for your time and effort in this matter, John Doe
Hello, as of December 5,2011 Joe Rue has not fulfilled the agreement that he made to refund the money he said he would. Joe Rue said that the puppy we purchased was a purebred and would come with all AKC paperwork. To this day I have not seen anything. I will know for next time to watch out for crooked breeders that like to jip their customers out of every dime. I am sure Joe Rue has done this before, he does not have a very good standing with the BBB or any other breeders in the area that I checked with.
