My friend just got a new German Shepherd puppy from a place called Chews a Puppy. He mentioned to me how the dog has always had an aloof/shy temperament and wasn't really being very sociable to most people(excluding him, apparently). The place said the dog was up to date on vaccines, and his owner was given his "pedigree". According to my friend, though, his dog has had a runny nose since he obtained him, and has only gotten worse since then, showing symptoms almost identical to what a dog would exhibit from the distemper virus. Just today, he was diagnosed with pneumonia and is currently being tested for distemper. As of right now, he is very confused on the course of action he should take with the dog, since it isn't unlikely he might have distemper(plus he doesn't have a lot of money to treat the dog, and is currently hosting a GoFundMe). This would also mean that if he does have it, we weren't given the full facts on the dog. My friend gave me the pedigree he was given, and the breeder's name happens to be David Stoltzfus. According to Google, the name Stoltzfus is very common amongst puppy mills in Lancaster, PA. I want to ask if anyone happens to know about this breeder and his credentials, because more lives of dogs might be at risk like my friend's dog, and we are considering holding the company accountable for the vet hospital fees.
