4PuppyPaws.com formally known as McPuppy advertised the sale of a Teddy Bear puppy out Waldorf, MN. March 2015, I went to their house and my lungs burned from the ammonia stench. I purchased what was presented to me as a Teddy Bear (Shih Tzu/Bichon) puppy from McPuppy . April 2015 I called McPuppy to inquire about the puppy shedding. She insisted the dog she sold me was a Teddy Bear, as she saw the puppy's parents. I had a feeling based on temperament that our puppy wasn't what I thought, so I paid for a DNA test which concluded that he is a Yorkshire Terrier, Shih Tzu, AND an unknown mixed breed. I contacted McPuppy to tell her she didn't sell me a Teddy Bear, but rather a mixed breed. She stated that I had to return the dog if I wanted my money back. I told her I couldn't do that after 7 months of bonding. McPuppy refused to work with me, so I filed papers in court for her fraudulent sale. She stated, "That is your prerogative, as it will be for me to file a counter suit. I will be awaiting the court documents." January 2016, I went to court asking for money back, due to the fraudulent sale. The judge ordered her to pay and they have a judgement against them because of not following the courts order. At the time of purchase, their business was McPuppy.com. Since appearing in court, they have changed the business name to 4PuppyPaws.com
Since writing reviews, I have had to jump through the court hoops and filing more, and I did get half of my money back. More importantly, I have been contacted by others who have purchased from this family and received something other than what they were told. They are making deals behind the scenes and returning full payment if a statement is signed agreeing to not post anything negatively in social media. I have also been told that this is a multi-family/generational business in both WI and MN that cross-breeds purebreds and mutts and also passes along genetic issues such as congenital heart defects.
