How many breeding dogs did the breeder have? not sure but i know she had 2 litters one after the other with 2 different dams
Was your puppy healthy? yes
Additional Comments: Pup appeared healthy, but upon pick up I was advised of a hernia. felt this should have been disclosed before I drove 2.5 hours
Did you receive the correct puppy? yes
Additional Comments: Has a contract 2 pages long with every possible scenario she must have encountered. Breeder only gives a blank copy of contract not a copy of what you sign. That should have been 1st red flag.
Did your puppy come with vet records? yes
Additional Comments: hernia was noted
Did your puppy come with a health guarantee? yes
Additional Comments: so she said , but further investigating showed she is breeding females that have DJD of elbows and keeps you deposit.
Would you purchase a puppy from this breeder again? no
Additional Comments: Breeder couldnt offer replacement pup because both dams are affected with joint disease. My pup was returned only to be re sold

Dog breeder Barbara Johnson stated her husband said to give me my money back for the pup since she could give me what I was looking for. All I wanted is a dog that came from a genetic free dam & sire which she could not produce and kept my hefty deposit. Since then she has re sold the pup making more money on her and she continues to breed her defective dogs that have the possibility of passing along these genetic defects. Breeding practices should not be accepted. I filed a complaint with the AKC, but doubt anyone will care. This is truly unacceptable breeding practices.
