I purchased a 10 month old female from Debby Melle at Castlebrook Shepherds and then found she had TOTALLY misguided me regarding the temperment AND health of this dog. The dog has temperment issues and is a fear pisser. The dog is terrified of a leash and afraid to come close to you. A fear larger than just dealing with a new person! In my opinion this dog was severely abused. The dog arrived from Indiana to Canada with an eye infection plus SEVERE Giardi which is not found in Canada in April , too cold. The invoice for the shipping, attached on the crate, proved that Debby had over charged me for shipping. I had already compensated her for her gas and time plus extra for her efforts(not knowing).
When the dog arrived we saw foam curlers GLUED inside both ears which was causing a severe rash. They were glued with an Automotive glue and very hard to remove! The only tattoo showing was the number 5 which wasn't part of the tattoo number stated by AKC. Debby Melle is dishonest, ruid and very cruel. Her website is very misleading also. She comes across as proffesional but check out everything she tells you BEFORE you finalize your deal. Debby will tell you anything for the sale of a pup or dog. Her contract talks circles protecting herself NOT covering anything in her dogs or anything positive for the purchaser. Her prices are too high considering she's breeding untitled dogs. Last time I posted this, considering the emails I received regarding Debby Melle, she is known for selling pups with temperment issues and not honoring her contract.
BUYER BEWARE! BE VERY CAREFUL.
