Stay away from these people! I suspect they do everything on the cheap to boost their profits. Wish we had done our research. Purchased a male puppy in December 2015 in Tallahassee, FL from Marcia and Chad Morrissette of Samson, AL December 2015. Over priced, but she talks a good game.
Never received a health certificate. Unfortunately when seen by our vet 2 days after we got him his ears were grossly infected under the tape, even ear canals were affected, cropped poorly (shorter on one side, too much off the top)--with much work they eventually stood. The tail is also cropped too short with scar tissue, unable to have a revision done it is so short. He had intestinal parasites, developed skin issues and food allergies.
When our vet had us call to get the vet's name in Gainesville, FL who had supposedly done the crops and ask about the health certificate, Marcia refused to give us the name of the vet and suggested we bring him back to her to care for his ears. When our vet told us to tell her it is illegal to sell a dog in FL without a health certificate, she became very defensive and eventually stopped responding to our texts and calls. Cropping was obviously not done by a licensed veterinarian.
When our son first picked out puppy he was not cropped, but they were on their way to Gainesville reportedly to their vet to have procedure done on the litter.
Marcia had promised a leash, collar and food upon pickup. No collar or leash, just glue and some sort of vitamins. Food was just some dry kibble (the kind with dye) in a grocery store plastic bag and a can of Alpo, nothing breed or puppy specific. With all this being said, our boy has turned out to be a nice dog. Although, he did seem poorly socialized as a puppy.
We were able to get AKC papers, but he is neutered so not really important to us and not sure how truthful the information is anyway. It is scary they also run a horse rescue. We did find them on the AKC site and they are still there. I would say find another breeder and do your research!
