Has anyone else had issues with this breeder, Lisa Simmons from NY?
Back story: I had contacted Lisa Simmons over a year ago inquiring about any upcoming litters as I am looking for a basenji puppy. I put down the $250.00 deposit for her upcoming litter in December-Feb (approximately). Time goes on, nothing. The dates change frequently from winter to summer. She says she’s breeding her other dog as well. I only get updates when I ask every couple of months. More time goes by. Nothing. It’s been a year. I had been in contact with another breeder who would be expecting puppies end of August. I contacted her again asking whether or not her litter would be born soon and if not I would be going with another breeder. I understand that you can’t control when a dog gives birth etc, but after this much time, I was ready for someone new. As soon as I asked about a refund, all contact stopped on her part. We had been in contact over private Facebook messages which had shown that she saw my messages. Sent her emails, no response. Contacted through Paypal, nothing. Called, straight to voicemail. I then tried posting on her Facebook wall asking about my deposit back which was promptly deleted and I was blocked. Essentially scammed out of $250 and a years worth of waiting.
DO NOT BUY FROM THIS BREEDER.
