I adopted a dog based on the bio on www.magnificentmutts.org, www.petfinder.com, and what I was verbally told by Magnificent Mutts. The dog I adopted was listed as 3.5 years old and housebroken. According to my vet, the dog was less than a year old. This was also apparent in the dogs very white and healthy teeth. The dog was also NOT housebroken. It chewed on things, (like a puppy does!), relieved itself, both #1 and #2, in the house and didn’t know any commands. This dog was doing damage to my house so I brought her back and the owner of Magnificent Mutts, Linda Latelle, said they would have to put to her sleep! She wanted me to keep the dog 4 more nights over a holiday weekend. The rescue knew I did not have a crate and was not going to spend more money for a situation I was absolutely misled in. The dog was re-listed on their website and Petfinder as being between 1-2 years old and will need A LOT of training! Clearly, one of these advertisements was incorrect, but Linda will not take any responsibility for this or for the damage caused to me by this. I was asking only for a partial refund based on the wrong information given to me. I paid $225 adoption fee, vet costs, carpet cleaning cost and disposal of items chewed because the dog I adopted was falsely advertised.
