That really sucks. I hate the pass the blame game. I hope the puppies are ok! I will say that I got one of my kittens from a breeder (a licensed one!) and he still turned out to be super sick. Sometimes you just never know =(. Poor babies though! Those pups will be so grateful they got rescued though. She saved their lives! Surely they wouldn’t have done well at the clinic.

What kind of rescue was it that she got them from? Is it just a private one owned by regular people or is it like a vet or pound type place? Could it be possible that they truly didn’t know the puppies were sick? Maybe the symptoms hadn’t hit them yet..

I feel so bad for the puppy and I hope he makes it. Your sister sounds like a very kind and compassionate person to spend so much money on a puppy she just got that may or may not survive!

I hope everything works out and I can understand your frustration!

Ugh, I’m really sorry 🙁  All I can say is that it is so wonderful of your sister to care for this poor puppy.  I hope he is doing better, keep us posted!

Yikes! I’m so sorry! As a dog lover, I can only imagine how hard this much be on everyone!

I might actually consult with the legal boards and see if maybe you can file a legal complaint with the shelter just go see about getting some reimbursement for the money you’ve had to dish out. I understand that it’s a shelter, and they probably don’t have a ton of money, but it seems to me they MUST have known something was up, and that’s just not right. I really think your sister needs some kind of financial compensation, even if only a little.

UGH!!! that is so frustrating. Its such a hard situation because rescues do the best the can (generally) but sometimes they really need to do better. I had a semi-similar situation. I got a cat from rescue that was very sickly when I got him but they told me that he had been tested and was negative for everything. I actually had him a bit over a year, was religious with vet visits, shots, etc, he was never ever let outside, never came into contact with other cats… one day he gets sick and he goes to the e-vet, he had feline leukemia! He was so bad off that they had to put him down. I was infuriated because he clearly had it when he came to me as there was no possibility of him contracting it while he was with me. If I had known I could have taken preventative steps for him, or at least been aware that I would probably lose him too soon. It was heartbreaking to get him just past the annoying kitten phase and really bond with him just to have him taken away so soon. I contacted the rescue and their response was basically “oops.” ARgh.

That’s insane. Sounds like the woman running the rescue is pretty shady. I’d def look into it and report them. There’s probably a ton of other poor dogs/puppies like this and they’re claiming to be a “rescue”. Not cool.

@ TheRen – I’m half willing to be you it’s a puppy mill, NOT a rescue. Puppy mill owners refuse to show their areas to prospective buyers as well.

Are you sure this place is a real rescue (501c and all)?  It sounds a lot more like a byb…

I totally agree. Good luck and maybe it will end up being one less puppy mill!

Wow, I’m really sorry. Your sis is an angel. That dog would have been put down in my house. (Because I’m poor, not cruel.) I doubt you’ll get your money back but maybe that place will get shut down and shield other familys from this stress.
