Thread: Brook Rouque

  1. #1

    Exclamation Brook Rouque

    In March I drove down to Fla and purchased two bullies. The one that I put a deposit on was not available. Brooke explained that the puppy was in the vets with a resp. infection and under an oxygen tent. My friend from work fell in love with the first male he introduced us to. Now called Winston. I was infatuated with a little girl, now Prima. We went back to the garage where he had pups in pens stacked on top of each other. They had screening that the puppies walked on, where the waste would fall through to a tray below. He had two large pens as described with older dogs in. When he put these puppies on the ground he said that this was the first time they had been on the ground. We took the puppies and their papers. We stayed at a local motel who warned up about him. This was on the week-end, by the next week-end Prima was on deaths door with parvo! She did survive with a hefty vet bill...which is fine! We weren't going to register them because we weren't going to breed them. We decided differently and pulled the papers out. Not only are the dogs not described correctly, Prima is described as fawn/white and is red and white. Winston is described as red with white markings, but is white with a few red markings. AND we were told that they had the same sire....not according to the papers. We contacted AKC and they have sent us a DNA kit to have them tested! We are heart broken! What can be done to STOP this man! What can we do to register our babies? We feel hopeless and would like ALL the advice we can get. We would like everyone who has had a problem with theis scam artist PLEASE contact the AKC!!!! Thank for listening!

    It is miserable to still hear stories about Brook. I have yet to hear papers ever matching birthdates or parents. He will never stop if people keep buying from him, so the best we can do it just let the public know. My dog has a congenital lifetime illness and I did get a "replacement" however he doesn't even seem to be full blooded, seems a little too long legged. I hope you get some help from the AKC.

    Always with me

    This man and other puppy mill operators make me sick. I do wish we could run them out of business but unfortunately there is little to do about it, but just get the word out, but they just change their kennel name and keep going. It is very sad to see the sick little pups and for the people to lose money to these scam artist.

    Please everyone contact the AKC, when we talked with them there had not been any complaints lodged against Brook. The AKC needs to know what a scumbag this guy is. Ironic that his last name is Rogue. Also, TV stations, newspapers in the Jacksonville area need to be contacted for further exposure. SPCA, Humane Society need to be notified also. It is criminal in all aspects in what he is doing. He needs to be brought down and brought to justice.

    i'm disgusted that my baby even has to share a nickname with this man. sorry about your babies, at least that are in good homes that take good care of them. i don't even want to think about all the babies he has sold to not good homes.

    You will find that when most EBN members hear that name they get the urge to spit!! He is a terrible person, and seems to be very good at dodging authorities.

    He's a one-man puppy mill and a disgrace to mankind!!!

    sounds like your adoptions were like a rescue. Thanks for the warnings. The more people everywhere know, the better.

    Have you searched here for SCAMS and read all of the info on this guy? Maybe you can contact the others with bad experiences through PM and get them to call the AKC on him as well as the news stations. They will do stories if they think there is enough interest and if 20 people call the news, they might consider it newsworthy.

    it doesn't even take 20. up here in ct there is a pet store that's always selling sick puppies and my boyfriend's brother's room mate got a german shepard puppy form them to only have it bleeding from multiple places within 2 days. they gave him such a hard time about refunding him and he went to the news and they aired it, but the place is still in business. = / not a lot you can do. people would rather pay less now and ignore the fact that will cost them or someone else (rescues, etc.) down the road. that's why these places and people will never go away.

    Who is Ken Amaro? Prima is my first bullie baby...OH MY GOD she is wonderful. I was helping my friend (I thought) get her first. She has wanted one since she was a little girl. I found Brook Rouque when I was searching for bullie puppies. I had no idea what he was about. He had some beautiful puppies. I fell in love with one on his site. I put down a deposit on her and made arrangements for a motel room that would let us keep the puppies there. The lady making the arrangements for our reservations warned us about a breeder there in Jackson. I described the website which had a little girl pictured with puppies and that I had been dealing with a lady on the phone. We both figured that must not be the one she had heard about. We figured wrong!! He has a reputation, but some how manages to keep the puppies and dams at many different locations as he told us. His aunt was one of them, I can't remember who else right of hand. We are going to continue to work with the AKC to see if they can help us. One of the responses suggested that we contact others who have had bad experiences with Brook and see if we could work together. He suggested using PM....what is that? Thank you for listening. As soon as I figure how I will add pictures of Prima and Winston. They are so BEAUTIFUL!

    PM is Private Message. You can go up to the top in the search box and search his name and a post about scams (maybe several) will come up. Scroll through the posts and see who has personal issues with him and then click on their user names on the left and click on private message. Then you can have a conversation with them that is private.
