Complaint / review text:
Purchased 3 month old Cocker Spaniel puppy from Brushy Creek Kennel, David Moore. The puppy was very sick and I took him to the vet the next day, per the contract. The vet said he had 2 bacterial infections, one severe intestinal infection and one upper respiratory infection. The puppy was so sick they thought he might die. The vet also thought he might have distemper. The puppy is severely anemic.
I called Mr. Moore who refused to reimburse me for the vet bills. He said to return the dog to him and he would have "His Vet" get him better and then I could pick him up once he was healthy. I was afraid that if I returned the puppy to him, I would never see him again. Per his contract, he is obligated to give me another dog.
I do not want another dog from this man. The types of infections that the puppy has are contagious; which means the rest of his puppies probably have the same thing. Next, my other dog which I have had for 14 years, caught the infections that the puppy had. She had to go to the vet and is now on the antibiotics that the puppy is on.
I spend $395.00 on the cocker spaniel puppy and now have spent close to $500.00 on vet bills which Mr. Moore refused to pay me back for. He has yet to send me the registration papers on the puppy either. When I called him regarding these issues, his response was that he was offended by my accusations.
Well, I am offended that I have spent $395.00 on a supposed registered puppy; then another $500.00 on sick vet bills from your kennel. If he truly guarenteed his puppies, he should be willing to cover the expense of the bills.
