Complaint / review text:
I purchased a Weimaraner puppy from puppyfind.com in December 2004. The so-called "breeder" is Bill Bartman aka [email protected] He is not a breeder. He is a broker. I believe this site to be a puppy mill site.
I have emailed the local news channels (channel 7 on your side) in hopes of them picking up my story but have not heard back from any as of yet. I even tried to contact a Tulsa Oklahoma news channel to help.
My puppy was genetically sick. I spent $500.00 dollars to buy him and another $165. Oo to ship him to me. He lived for only months. I spent another $3000.00 and 3 Vets later to keep him alive. The vets & myself needed some information regarding the rest of the litter or the puppy's parents and Bill Bartman would never return my phone calls to help. He is insisting that he doesn't know me. He knows me and I have the paperwork to prove it. I have the airbill with his name on it and my charge card info.
My puppy died this past May after many vet bills and medication. He was a beautiful puppy and I am sick over this mess. Please people, do not buy any puppies from puppyfind.com or you too will be sorry.
I have tried to contact as many officials as I could in Oklahoma. Every one was a dead end for me. From what the Sherrifs Dept. And Humane Society told me this guy is known as a con-artist in Tulsa Oklahoma. He was an owner of a Credit Company that buys bad accounts. It has since gone bankrupt and he got off free while his partners ended up in court and/or possibly jail.
I have tried to contact the Vet listed on the Airbill and he too denied knowing anything about Weimaraner puppies. The whole bunch of them are liars. And I have no way of getting any of my money back or a replacement puppy. I am out $4000.00. I am making monthly payments and will be for a long time. This has ruined my credit history. I am single and have no way of catching up on the bills I had let go in order to try to get my puppy well.
I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Beaureu. They have not heard back from Bill Bartman.
The AKC registered papers Bill Bartman faxed me were no good. They were ficticious and listed a breeder who doesn't exist. The add listed Bill Bartman as the breeder until the AKC papers arrived which listed these unknown persons.
I have all my paper work/bills to prove these allegations.
My puppy didn't have a chance at a normal life.
If there is anyone out there that can help, please do so. I will not stop until I am sure that these people/internet site are stopped.
