I bought two puppies from this breeder in March of 2019 after tragically losing my Springer to cancer. We were devastated with his loss and needed more “fur children”, since we don’t have kids. The breeder assured me adamantly that his puppies are the best, free of any genetic disorders. I specifically mentioned hip dysplasia and eye issues, and he said his breed line is genetically “perfect”. One of my puppies developed severe hip and elbow dysplasia (which is a proven GENETIC disorder) around the age of five months. We were faced with the choice of either euthanizing the puppy or spending THOUSANDS of dollars on treatments to help his pain. How could I put my puppy to sleep? There was no way. He gets hundreds of dollars worth of supplements every month and is facing a painful major surgery which is going to cost us about $1800.00 PER HIP.He will never be able to play like other dogs or do agility/fly ball. We can’t even take him on long hikes. His brother ALSO has diagnosed hip dysplasia but thankfully his is mild. We are hoping we can get him to old age before his hips fail him completely. I contacted the breeder who is in full denial and refuses to do anything to assist us. I asked for the purchase price of the puppy back, nothing more. I don’t understand how someone can breed babies like this and let them live a life of pain and suffering. I asked them to stop breeding this specific pair and they refuse. Money is more important to them than the sanctity of a good life. Sad. DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE!
