In reply to this thread I just wanted to tell my story. My ex-wife bought her female Dolly Mae from Matrix when she put down our dog Ella. Her dog had mange and a few other things. My dog Howie was healthy but he had worms even though they told me he had been dewormed. I had to take him to Brook to have distemper shots. When i took my dog to a reputable vet they raised eyebrows when I told him what breeder I bought him from. Luckily Howie is healthy. When I tried to call Brook to get his AKC papers he kept blowing me off. When I finally talked to him over a week or two later he told me he would come by and bring them to me since the place where he has his dogs was only a short distance away. He doesn't live there. He keeps his puppies there with the supposed sire and bitch. Well, he did come over and bring the papers but it was for a female with a different color scheme. By now I was worried. I emailed him and called more and got no response. I was angry by now. I emailed him again and called and said that I would seek legal counsel if he didn't return my calls. Well, then I got an email from him which basically said "what is your hurry? Do you even know how to breed a bulldog?" Now I have had 3 previous bulldogs so I am not new to this whole thing. Each time I bought one in the past I got my certification papers the day I took the dogs home. Here is the email>
"Birth certificate? Are you serious? It's not a birth certificate. Your dog wasn't registered with st vincents. It's a simple form that I got confused with someone else.
I told you to call me at the end of the week. I told you I had to get the others back as I had switched them, did I not?
Are you breeding your dog this week? You are months and months and months away from that. I told you last week that I was working on getting them back from someone else. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm neither threatened by you nor ken Amaro. Retrieving papers does not happen overnight. I assure you that you'll have the papers this week; LONG before you breed, long before you're ready to breed, and long before you figure out how to breed.
This is in NO WAY your fault...at all. This is ALL my fault. However there is no need for frivolous threats. You got a 2000 dog for 1400 and I made a mistake, that's in the process of being fixed. I wasn't aware that I was suppose to keep you posted on every single move that's being made.
Email me Friday and they will be here. That is ample time for them to get back from the other person, if I have to drive there myself.

Here was my original email after he blew me off several times.
What do I have to do to get you to bring me my correct birth certificate for my puppy? I tried going by Michelle's house and wasted a trip only to have you think I was there for a vaccine because you obviously don't know me from any other person. I specifically told you what I was there for. You did come by eventually and brought me the wrong birth certificate for my dog. After realizing this error, you have returned one call in all that time. We got the dog April 10th. I have phone records showing all the times I have tried to contact you. All I want is what I paid for which is an AKC English Bulldog with registration papers should I want to stud him to another breeder.
If I had known how this was going to be, I would have gone with a different breeder entirely because the only time you have been attentive to me or my dog's needs is when I had 1400.00 dollars to give you. I am very disappointed, and I will be seeking legal counsel on this matter if you don't get me my registration papers this week. I have waited long enough and given you way beyond the shadow of a doubt. I was serious when I said I would contact the Better Business Bureau, as well as Ken Amaro and the local news stations. Do me a favor, do the right thing, and save me a hassle. I only want what's mine. After that, you can go on with your business where you don't call other people back and don't have the decency to treat your customers with respect.
The guy was a complete douche and did not apologize. He somehow managed to turn it around on me that I had the problem. He finally did come to my house and brought me the paperwork. It must be said that this was after he told me the wrong date that Howie was born. I really think he has no idea when they were born because he doesn't breed them. He came over at dusk and I saw his truck. He was trying to slide the paperwork under my door because he is a cowardly piece of $@it. I opened the door and caught him unaware. It was funny because I told him I had no intention of breeding
my dog. I just wanted what was supposed to come with my Howie. I got him fixed and he is the dog in my profile pic. So, I have told people interested in getting a bulldog to steer clear of Brook and his puppy mill. He did disclose while he was standing in my driveway that he was in hot water because one of his customers dogs died and then the replacement dog was sick too. I think it was the woman he wouldn't refund who posted on craigslist. He is a piece of spam and does not deserve to sell these sweet dogs. Bulldog breeders should be special people too like their owners.
