In 2003 I bought a protection trained GSD from ** name removed by Admin**. When the owner ** Name removed by Admin** brougt me the dog I paid him and had wonderful years with Cereal. He passed away 11/09 and I wired *** $7500.- for another GSD that I was told I'd have in 2-3 weeks. After 4 months - still no dog. Then he brought me a dog with a huge growth on his foreleg. I sent him back. Then he brought another dog with problems I was unaware of. I kept the second dog as I had already paid for him and I could never get the owner to return my frantic emails regarding the dogs health/training issues. The dog had a health certificate from a local vet in his area but the dog also had a very bad case of Giardia, a rare skin parasite called Rhabditis Strongyloides, lots of ticks and burns under his chin from an electric collar. The dog wouldn't eat, was very lethargic, had a real bad smell and had terrible diarrhea -this went on for 6 months. Finally, he is all better. I would seriously recommend NOT buying a dog from these people (***). The guy is a liar and a con man - I'm being kind. At least there was a happy ending as Almo turned out to be a great dog.
