A friend and I purchased two puppies from Lake Country Pets on the same day. We were assured by Mr. Anderson that they did not come from a puppy mill and that they were completely healthy. We noticed the smallest of the 3 puppies seemed to be having trouble with his hind legs. When asked Mr. Anderson said that it was nothing for small dogs, that ours were fine. We both took the puppies to the vet within 7 days of purchasing. Puppy #1 had tape worms, Guardia, Yeast infection in his ears and really bad knees. Puppy #2 had ear mites, extremely bad hips and knees. Both my friend and I have other dogs at home which we then had to treat at great expense. We requested a $250.00 refund from Mr. Anderson/Lake Country Pets. He offered $150.00 in cash and $150.00 in grooming. We rejected his offer of grooming and asked for $250.00. As of todays date Mr. Anderson has not complied with our request. We have filed complaints with the BBB, Consumer Protection and SPCA. Mr. Anderson has ingored all efforts by the BBB to resolve this issue.
I've taken in stray's, rescue and human societly dogs all clear of any mites, worms etc. Yet a puppy from a pet store not only puts me back $499.00 plus food, but another $300.00 in vet bills within the 1st week. Please do not buy a puppy from this establishment. For the record I advised Mr. Anderson not to sell the remaining puppy, he wasn't there one week later and in speaking with the breeders daughter he wasn't returned. So Mr. Anderson sold this puppy knowing there was genetic issues with their knees and hips. That fact should keep you from buying there alone. Mr. Anderson has ingnored all our efforts to resolve this issue. That is why I am posting. I do not want anyone else to go through what we have. A puppy called a lemon by the vet
