We purchased a pup from them in 2003, Jake. At around two years old, he was diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia. I called Susan, so to let her know about the diagnoses. I called six times and each time it went to voicemail. I kept calling because I wanted to speak to her, not her VM. The sixth phone, I left her a message. In the message, I told her why I was calling. A week past and no return phone call. I called again, leaving a message again. This time, I also emailed her. Again, no response. After numerous messages were left and emails too, I sent her a certified letter. Nothing, zero, no response whatsoever. I was livid.
Luckily, Jake has been fine with his HD. Our vet did say that dogs can lead very normal lives with HD.
I posted this in the Cancer forum, but Jake has just developed two lumps in his throat and one in his armpit. I'm fearing it's Lymphoma. Especially now, since another posters GR(Post #21 Riley), who was purchased from the same breeder, developed Lymphoma
. We have an appt with out vet tomorrow. Hoping for a good outcome.
As far as temperament, Jake has been an awesome friend. We could not ask for a better one. That being said;
I'll be another poster to say, DO NOT PURCHASE FROM GOLDEN CREEK KENNELS!!
