Thread: Warning About Pets Paradise

    Default Warning About Pets Paradise

    hi guys i just wanted to warn people about what happened to me in the hope that someone not as lucky as i was wont get caught ..
    i have 12 curly retriever x border collie pups that were a accidental litter tho very much loved. i am keeping 1 of them but have advertised them for sale in the trading post , i got a call from the manager of pets paradise in frankstone victoria 3.5 hrs away from me saying if i was willing to bring the pups to them they would pay me my asking price plus $20 extra per pup for fuel and stuff . so after many convos with family and doing some checking told them ok but they would have to give me a cheque on the day to pay for them not their usual cheque in the mail 3 days latter as they said .. so all was agreed and my son and his mate took the pups and met the manager at a frankstone vet where the boys were told to wait outside while the vet checked the pups over.. i then got a call saying that 2 pups had heart murmers and they wouldn't take them but would take the other 9 , ok thats fine .. in the meantime my son has most of the pups and the manager has the girl pups with him and were ment to meet at the pets paradise shop in bay city plaza. my son was having trouble finding the shop and the manager wouldnt answer his phone . because he was on the phone to me telling me the area manager said he wanted the pups checked again in a week incase any others showed signs of murmers and they would send me a cheque in a week (alarm bells were ringing loud now) luckly im friends with a small pet shop owner and he took over the call for me and found out pets paradise had ALREADY vaccinated and microchipped the 9 pups !!!! he told the guy he had no right to do that as they had not paid for the pups or asked my permission to do so !!! and that he best send the pups back home with my son. after some arguing the pups the manager had taken were brought out to the car park with one of the female staff and a plaza security guard and given back to my son who promptly bought all 11 pups home.. 2 days later i took the pups that i had been told had murmers to a vet i didnt say anything to her and was with her while she did a thorough check of the pups befor vaccinating them and chipping them.... well what do you know NO MURMERS were detected at all and the pups were givin a clean bill of health .. so im assuming pets paradise were willing to forgo 2 pups to trick me into selling the pups to them cheaper a week later by saying that they couldnt garrentee the pups wouldnt develop murmers and that being so far away i wouldnt make the effort to come and get them and agree to the lower price they offered ... i love my puppys and was not going to leave them there and will NEVER deal with pets paradise in any shape or form .. this was my first ever litter of pups and after this experience i think it may be my last ever litter . people like this give good and caring pet shops a bad name .. i am now selling my pups privately ... sorry for the long rant but people need to know about these things so someone dosnt get ripped off

    I personally don't think puppies should ever be sold in a pet shop. Or kittens for that matter. My mind is thinking lots, but i will leave it at this..........

    Like Newfsie said... I also don't believe puppies (or animals in general) should be sold from pet shops, period.
    Can't find a way to express the miriad of other thoughts swirling in my head, either.

    There are so many unwanted pups and dogs at the pound or in rescue you really are better off not breeding your dogs. If you do ,you really need to find an appropriate home for each and everyone of them and make sure that if down the track any of them are unwanted that you take them back, so none of them ever end up in the pound.

    The breeders I got my dogs from guarantee to take them back if anything happens in my life that I cant take care of them.

    That is what our Breeder does. That is why I get all my Rescues through her. She is very active in her breed Rescue (not just her pups)

    Sounds like you were more concerned about the money and the fact that you were going to be 'ripped off' rather than the welfare of the puppy's you claim to love so much. However you were happy to pop them in the car and send them off to find homes with God know's who when extra money was waved in front of your face.

    Bloody back yard breeders!! The 'woe is me' stories never fail to make my blood boil!!

    OK ,just as an afterthought.
    Would you mind telling us ( in private if you prefer) what area you are in ?

    Perhaps there is a Rescue or even a willing member able to at least give you a hand and guide you in the right direction to go from here. Both for the pups you have now and so you can be assured it doesn't happen again .

    edit to add - so all pups are now vacced and chipped?

    another edit - never let your your 10 yr old ( though facebook savvy) son thank a post for you if you are in a hurry only needed 1 post thanked son, but great post everyone
