Kol’s like “Can you just get my ball and shut up?” 🤣 Sorry for the inactivity! Kol’s working hard towards his next title in a month *fingers crossed* and Garrett and I are 10 days away from our wedding and 12 days away from Garrett starting business school in Seattle. To say that things are crazy is a complete understatement 🤣
Chances are if you don't follow them, you've seen the videos that went viral of their dog, Baron, cleaning. Linda, the owner of this page, has had three litters from her dogs, Baron and Audi.
Apparently, Linda has been scamming buyers of her puppies for years. She has forged vet documents to show vaccines that were never given. She has said her dogs were health tested, but has never shown proof. Several of her puppies have had hip issues and other serious health issues, with no response from Linda. Several of the puppies are not able to be AKC registered for odd reasons.
Linda has scammed numerous people from thousands of dollars. She accepted AT LEAST fifteen deposits for puppies for her last litter, when Audi has never had more than eight puppies. She accepted numerous "first picks" from the last litter and required they pay $2,000 upfront. She also accepted numerous second and third picks.
She pressured others to pay upfront or just donate money to her because she was in need for various reasons. And obviously, some never got a puppy after paying upfront. Many have still not gotten their money back.
When I first started reading her story, I assumed it was all hearsay. However, numerous of the buyers have come forward, so this is not simply a rumor. They do intend to sue Linda, though it's likely she does not have any of their money left.
I share this to raise awareness. Not ALL breeders are deceptive, money hungry scammers, but there are some. No matter how loyal their following and how sincere they appear, validate everything you're told. If possible, chat with others who have bought a puppy from the breeder and get their experience.
If you have been directly involved in this scam, please share your situation in the comments if you feel comfortable.
