Beaux Art Chinese Shar Pei - Beware of Barbara Dion of Beaux Art Shar pei. I bought two sick dogs from her.
I bought a male apricot colored shar-pei from Barbara Dion in october 2015. She and her friend had advertised him on puppyfind as stud dog for sale.
I talked with Barbara on the phone about Samari, a couple times before sending her a check for him on October the 6th. She told me he was 2 and ahalf years old. She told me he was in good health and that her other dogs "which she has a lot of" fought with him. That they didn't like him.
She said it would help her out and I needed a stud pei. I didn't pick him up until late October. We stayed in touch by phone until pick up. She met me in Winston Salem, and I immediately thought that Sam was under weight.
She said he was healthy and a good boy. He stunk on the ride home, so ofcourse I gave him a bath and worked on putting some weight on him. I noticed right away that he drinked a lot, a lot of water. I called and ask her about it.
She said he had always done that and that he was fine. I noticed he had a foul smell to his breath too. I asked her about it she didn't comment. Just blew me off.
It didnt take long for me to fall in love with Sam. He was the most gentle, loving male dog I had had. I could tell he had been fighting with other dogs because he had scars on him and she told me that's what it was from. Little did I know Sam was not in good health.
I had him less than 18 months and he got sick. He was in kidney failure. His prognosis was grim. I got the paperwork from Barbaras vet on Sam;, and right there in black and white it reads, and I quote her vet, "born to a "*** that was in kidney failure" she never told me any of this.
If you look at this paper closely from her vet right beside the words born to a *** in kidney failure it has a caution sign with a exclamation point in it. His kidney failure was genetic. She lied and told me he was healthy. She knew.
I was heartbroken. My Sam had to be put down. The vet said it would be inhumane not to. He couldnt do anything for him.
Especially since his bloodwork came back bad and his mother died of kidney failure. My veterinarian said Samurai should have never been breed.He was predestined for kidney failure. She never told me this. She's so greedy she just had to *** him out of her kennel and then sell him for money..
the honest and best thing to do would have been to fix him and let someone have him for a pet. She has cost me a lot of grief and heartache, I adored Samaria. She knew all this!!!!!its always about the almighty dollar to her. It cost me over two hundred dollars just to put him down.I told her what happened and ofcorse she denys any of it.
We exchanged a couple messages and she wanted to see the paperwork. I forwarded to her and ask her to reply within 48 hours. She hasn't. She doesn't take responsibility for anything.
She won't even contact me back. She says my message sounded threatening. That's the excuse she uses to get out of contacting you back. Which it doesn't.
It was matter afact only. I wouldn't recommend anyone buying a shar pei from her. She doesn't tell the truth or take responsibility for her actions. She has yet to contact me back.
Its been 3 weeks. Bad business. On the paper from my vet it plainly states that he should be breed. This paperwork is fact.
It doesn't lie. She does!!!
