We bought a puppy from Wicks Silver Labs in December 2011.Our puppy began losing her fur after being home for only 5 days.
She was diagnosed with a genetic disorder, color dilution alopecia, in January 2012. Our puppy's genetic disorder is covered under the health warranty we were given in December 2011. Mr Wickliffe has since precluded "alpache" (alopecia) as a covered condition. Mr.
Wickliffe, owner of Wicks Silver Labs, agreed to replace our puppy in January. He stated that he didn't know when he would be having another litter arriving and would have to let us know. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Wickliffe told us we "voided" our warranty.
Mr. Wickliffe has yet to give us an explanation as to how we allegedly "voided" our warranty. We have made multiple request to Mr. Wickliffe for an explanation regarding the warranty.
In March Mr. Wickliffe informed us via email that he would have no further communication with us on the advice of his "attorney". He stated we would be hearing from his attorney "soon" We have yet to hear from his "attorney" or Mr. Wickliffe!
Now Mr. Wickliffe has two litters available from which to provide us with a "replacement" puppy from. Mr. Wickliffe had a litter arrive March 24 and April 3.
He professes to only have "1-2" litters a year, just an occasional breeder. He also had a litter advertised on his website born Feb 22. In our opinion, Mr!. Wickliffe knew full well when he would be having future litters available when he promised us a new puppy but couldn't tell us when one would be available/.
In our opinion, Mr'. Wickliffe sells puppies with a health warranty that he has no intentions of honoring if need be.. He is not concerned about the quality of the puppies he sells or the people who unwittingly buy from him?. He is ONLY concerned about making his money, a $1000 per pup with an additional $250 for breeding rights|.
In our opinion Wicks Silver Labs is a Puppy Mill;.
Unfortunately, Ohio does not have very effective legislation regarding dog breeding or breeders/.In our opinion, we were SCAMMED. 384ccff
