Linda Strand made problem worse for puppy and for me, the owner. Linda Strand ignored my texts for financial help for serious surgery for my German Shepherd precious puppy, bought on Nov. 5, 2016. My puppy has a birth defect, requiring surgery, to remove the reproductive Organs, which are high up in his abdomen. This birth defect is passed down from the adult breeding dogs, belonging to Linda Strand, this chromosome, is passed down, to the litters, to the puppies. No disclosure to me, nothing ever said to me, nothing written in my health certificate, nothing ever said about this serious birth defect inside my puppy. My puppy will never be able to compete in dog shows that require all reproductive parts, called intact, and never be able to breed, and have puppies, of his own. Linda Strand ignored my texts and my asking for financial help, to help pay For this surgery, that was never disclosed to me. Never an apology, for putting my precious puppy and me, the loving owner, Through this ***. Linda Strand, texted me, finally, today, Feb. 16. 2017, to tell me to go to Orlando or to Deland, to get this surgery done. Linda Strand said it is very cheap there, but, she never mentioned any Help, paying for this important, life saving surgery, that prevents cancer and torsion, in my puppy. Also, taking a sick puppy, traveling, long distances, such as Orlando, and Deland, Is not wise, for it is about a four hour trip, or more depending on traffic And weather conditions. I live very far from Orlando and Delano, and if my puppy has serious Medical complications, or adverse reactions, then, my puppy and I would be very far from our home! Linda Strand you made this serious problem worse, for this precious puppy.
