We checked the pictures of a husky on the lancasterpuppies.com and decided to get one husky that looked very pretty. I instantly messaged the lady that we wanted to get that puppy and paid the booking amount. We paid the deposit because we did not want anyone else to get that puppy. We decided to take 4 hours of drive to pick that puppy from Ohio as we lived in Michigan.
We messaged the Lancaster Puppies lady that we would come after four days. In between, I messaged the lady if she had a recent picture of that puppy as the picture was 4 months old. However, she refused to have any latest picture of that puppy. This did seem weird to me. But I had fallen in love with that picture and wanted to get that cute puppy home as soon as possible.
After the days passed and it was the time for us to travel to Ohio, we started our journey. In between of our travel, I got a call from the breeder that the puppy had a small scab on the back. They informed that the scab did happen to peel off and now there was a small soreness on the back. The breeder told me that I could choose a different puppy if I wanted.
I told him that it was okay as I thought that the open sore would be size of a quarter. I told the breeder that I would be coming for that puppy. When I reached there, I found that the puppies were kept in the garage and there were no food or water for them. This meant that they were brought to that place just for us to pick one from.
Anyway, they looked exhausted and seemed as if whoever was taking care of them was very irresponsible. The puppy that I chose from the picture had a huge open sore on the back. It was around the size of a palm. How could they not check that before? It was something that could have been visible right away. They said that they did not know the reason for that problem.
I have two cats and my son is 8 years old. We could not take the risk of introducing any infection at home. So, we decided to take another one. However, when we got back, I found out that the puppy had several scabs on his body. It was because of the skin infection that I was worried about. So, we went straight to the vet as the poor puppy needed help.
He is since on antibiotics. When I called Lancasterpuppies.com to inform about the situation and demanded a refund. They refused. I am keeping this puppy for sure. I know he needs a home and not some filthy backyard. But lancasterpuppies.com must verify the breeders and take measures to ensure safety of the dogs.
However, they seemed as if only worried about money. It is pure business for these guys and I hate to say, but they don’t deserve to sell pets.
