Additional Notes

Complaint: I wired Alpine k-9 $2,000 on 12/09/2014 as a deposit for a German Shepherd dog. I wired another $9600 on 12/18/2014 which was a total of $10,000 for the dog and $1600 for shipping. I received the dog on approximately 1/05/2015. I've contacted the owner of Alpine k-9 numerous times because I still have not received the pedigree papers and score book transferring ownership over to me. It has been nearly 4 months and I still don't have the papers transferring ownership over to me. I was told by him to email to him any questions that I may have regarding this, but he doesn't respond to my emails. (It's like purchasing a car without a title). Without the papers the dog is of no use to me as I am a breeder of German Shepherds and without the papers I can't breed the dog. I would either like the papers or I can ship the dog back to Alpine k-9 and they can refund my money. I had originally contacted this company because as I am a member of the Better Business Bureau of New Jersey, and I saw on their home page they had the Better Bureau Emblem. I spoke to the BBB, NJ who told me that I should contact you

Desired Settlement: I just want the pedigree papers and score book transferring ownership to me or I can ship the dog back to Alpine K-9 and they can refund my money

Business Response: The paperwork is processed in Czech republic and that takes time. I have told this to Mr ******* many times and  there is absolutely nothing I could do about it it is a matter of the registry in Czech. .   FYIthe paperwork arrived today via UPS.It will be copied and send to Mr ******* in near future via registered mail. 

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.  For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.

I will accept the response when I receive the paperwork for the German Shepherd dog
