I know another member has posted she bought from this breeder, but I have not noticed anymore recent post, so I don't know if she experienced the same problem.
Hi, sorry, I didn't know this thread resurfaced.
Yeah, Nana came with coccidia and giardia. This is my third time treating. Fingers crossed that it works this time... I'm extremely frustrated. Didn't get the pin for the limited registration, and she never responds when I ask for it.
I feel like any time I talk about a breeder or a bad experience with a breeder, I somehow get slammed for it, so I dunno. I'm glad people are having similar experiences though, so that proves I'm not crazy.
I'm not angry that Nana had giardia and coccidia when we got her, because stuff happens, but from what it sounds like, Judy really needs to clear that out of her kennel if every single puppy over the years has gotten it. It sucks. This should be something she talks to you about before you put down a deposit, because treating it practically comes with the package of getting a puppy from her.
I wish I researched harder, but I thought I did everything right. Former president of the oregon grc, current vice president... yet has 37 dogs, constantly has litters, each puppy is sent home with giardia and coccidia, and never I've never gotten registration. I'm beyond frustrated. I've been up since 4 in the morning from her diarrhea and have lost countless nights of sleep because she needs to go out every hour.
However, Nana does have a wonderful temperament. She's very sweet, has excellent social skills, and everyone she meets falls in love with her. She's extremely smart, and pretty mellow, so I guess Judy has that down.
I'm guessing that the experience of living in the area vs living outside of the area is completely different. I didn't get to visit any of the pups before pick up day, and I rarely got e-mails with updates and pictures. Everytime she would finally call me back, though, she would say how busy she was with everyone else visiting... oh.
Well. I guess it's my bad for living 700 miles away.
Edit: Also, I didn't know she had giardia/coccidia until I finished the 10 hour drive to get her.
