Hello, Kobi a merle pug was purchased from xxxxxxxxxxxxK for£4250. Kobi was described by the breeder & her veterinarian as other then a small scratch on his eye to be "perfectly healthy". Living in another country, we never got to physically see Kobi before purchase other then a few photos and short 4-5 second video clips that weren't very clear. Not being able to see the dog, we relied on the information the breeder provided us about his health and thought she was a professional person that wouldn't deceive us. Yet now we know we were lied to and deceived from the very beginning. Kobi was born on August 31 and arrived via courier on January 19 when he was 4 months 3 weeks old. It was immediately noticed the day Kobi arrived something was wrong with his rear legs. We notified the breeder that we noticed something odd about the way Kobi stands and how his back slopes & we were ridiculously told that "Kobi stands like a show dog and he stands different because he's merle", when in reality we later learned by an MRI is Kobi's sloping stance from the day he arrived was caused by a growing cyst in his spine to the point where Kobi now can't walk and needs to be carried everywhere. While undergoing an X-ray, Kobi was revealed to have a crooked spine, is missing vertebrae (he has 6 lumbar vertabrae where canines should have 7), other vertabrae are deformed & has severe dysplasia in both of his rear legs, & hasn't been able to control his bladder since arriving, NONE of which was disclosed to us before purchasing Kobi. Kobi was described in the breeders words "the best merle pug in the world" when in fact he was sold & sent to us with many hidden health problems as were later revealed. We later learned Kobi is also a PDE carrier which was another undisclosed genetic illness the breeder was aware of prior to selling Kobi. When confronted about Kobi's condition the breeder told us ridiculous things such as that "we chose Kobi", "we could have chosen another dog", "Kobi is yours", & "I can't speak now I'm busy delivering pups, chat later" to no eventual response. (please remember Kobi was chosen based on photos we saw on Instagram & others that were sent to us via WhatsApp). In regards to his uncontrollable bladder we were told to "get him a belly band it should help with his peeing". Sorry, but we can't see how such a statement by the breeder is to be accepted after selling as described "a perfectly healthy dog" for £4,250 to then telling us to buy him a belly band because he arrived so sick that he hasn't been able to control his bladder since. Kobi pees in a normal walk not aware he's even peeing. On April 12, we were also told "all other pups from mum and dad are fine and mum and dad are fine", which is clearly one of many lies we've been told along the way as Kobi's mom was tested to be a SS PDE carrier and already put up for adoption by the breeder. After Kobi's MRI he was prescribed medicine to take for a month. The breeder said she "spoke to her vet and he said we would put him on this medicine and he'd be better after a few days". After a month passed and his prescribed medicine ended we notified the breeder that the medicine did not resolve the problems and Kobi was not walking again and that he needed spinal surgery and requesting all his health records while he was in her care. The breeder has since broken off communication, she hasn't returned any phone calls or messages, she has proceeded to block all of our phone numbers from which we contacted her during the buying process. We received just a prerecorded WhatsApp message saying "she's busy and can't talk now". We were told Kobi would come with a full health report and papers claiming he's perfectly healthy. The only thing Kobi came with was his vaccination history. No contract was provided only a "sales receipt". (The kind you buy at a office supply store 500 at a time). Since arriving Kobi has seen a half dozen different vets and neurologists and all have made the same statement, "you were sold an already sick dog, the breeder had to have known this sending him at 4.5 months of age and shouldn't have sold him to you without disclosing these problems". Since creating Kobi's Instagram page & doing some research we uncovered other unhappy owners who bought puppies from the same breeder that came sick with hernias or undisclosed PDE among other problems. Also we contacted clubs & organizations the breeders claimed to be a member of in her advertising & received this reply "we have no one with that name on our system, therefor we have no dealings with them". It's clear to us that the breeder just wants to deliver and sell pups without fully checking the health of the pup & the unsuspecting problems the future owners must go through in curing these sick pups. The many sleepless nights, time off from work driving Kobi around from vet to vet and the growing vet bills all caused by being misled that we were buying a "perfectly healthy dog" when in fact it was the complete opposite. I have all medical records, MRI, X-ray, history conversations with the breeder and list of people with similar stories that I can provide to further prove everything written above. Since going public with Kobi's Story the breeder has since made her Instagram profile private, has taken down her Facebook page, yet still advertises her dogs for sale on Pets4Homes and other websites. She even sells and offers to ship worldwide the sperm of Kobi's father (Franky Blue Eyes). Be VERY CAREFUL when purchasing a dog from this breeder so you do not experience the horror we've gone through ever since receiving what she described to be a "perfectly healthy dog".
