Start a thread.
Be careful jack. They'll pick and choose posts and delete the ones that call out certain member's hurtful comments about the OP ..... like our earlier posts.

I wanted to add, I "think" and I could be wrong, that somewhere, the OP mentioned she had contacted the breeder and other puppies were sick also..

and also that the mother hadnt been vaccinated, which can cause the puppies to not have antibodies . I dont think this was a real breeder. I think this was a BYB that didnt care at all about her dogs. I could be wrong but this is what I got from the story.

I am so sorry for your loss. He did know your love and caring in his lifetime, which was a long lifetime to him. I remember you saying he'd stand up and be happy to see you! Keep that love always in a special part of your heart! He's watching from the Bridge, and running with all our babies that have passed on! Peace to you and your family. I planted a rose bush in memory of Cody and Clipper. Rest in peace now sweetheart.

She was a real breeder.

Breeders do not earn the title by jumping through all the hoops that this site thinks they ought to. They put a dog together with a bitch and produce a litter of puppies. If she owned the bitch when the litter was conceived, then she is indeed a breeder. Not an artificial breeder, or a breeder once-removed.

What I got from the story was that the breeder was a friend, or a friend of a friend's, who gave the OP a significant break on the price of the puppy because of that. I doubt she knew the puppies had contracted the disease before selling them.

Lots of people minimize the use of vaccines. I think the OP thought that she was out of date with her vaccinations, not that she never had any. I don't know if there is enough to indicate that the breeder did not care at all about her dogs.

This line of discussion is so unhelpful. The puppy is dead. And attempts to use this section of a very sad thread to somehow malign the puppy's owner from purchasing from this breeder, is kind of crappy. Expecting the breeder's owner to go on some type of crusade against this person is also not really thinking about the people involved, but just trying to forward a crusade of your own.

It's kind of like smacking people when their dog develops hip dysplasia for going to a BYB, but what do you do when someone goes to a good breeder and their dog fails the x-ray?

So sorry to hear of Napoleon's passing. You really, truly did everything you could.

I think some have brought up the fact that there is a "puppy lemon law" in California, where if a puppy gets sick within a certain time frame after purchase, you can get your money back from the breeder. I am not sure of the details on that, but it is something you could look into, as I know you've exhausted yourself financially. To get a little bit back would certainly not hurt you.

Off topic
New Thread - Please Use This To Continue The Other Discussion

Apologies to the OP and others - I'm doing this from my phone so this thread may have some confusing comments. Please carry on expressing sympathies for the little one.

I'm very sorry about Napolean. I know the additional costs for people in California from watching pets go through IMOM for help. He was given the best chance he could have. Being male didn't help either - girls typically have better survival from Parvo - again, nothing anyone could have done about that. Please take care, take some time. We probably need to look up post Parvo protocols for you.

I'm sorry to hear of your puppy passing. I'm relieved he is no longer suffering.

I got Riley from a BYB. I loved him more than any dog, but he was just to sick and if he did get better he would have had a lifetime of suffering. I understand the pain. Those little guys take hold of your heart so fast.

In the future if you do get another GSD try to go to a reputable breeder. Kaleb is from a reputable breeder and the differences are like night and day. If money and love alone could have saved Riley he would still be with us.

I know you did everything you could for your puppy. I hope him and Riley are playing together at the rainbow bridge. (hugs)

I'm so sorry to hear about Napolean's passing. There is no doubt in my mind the amount of love you had for him....the toughest thing with love is knowing when to let go. While it's not always what we want, doing so for the better of our beloved pets make it worth it. I have been following your story, praying for you and him. I wish it would have turned out for the better, but he is no longer in pain. Rest in peace little Napolean. Despite his small size, he had so much heart.
