(Google Reviews) :
“So far our experience with TLR [Little Rascals] is up and down but i must admit i was very upset with what happened to our first ever puppy, we bought a Japanese Spitz from them and took it home he was lovely well behaved, he was perfect but, one day coming back from school i notice that he was unwell and had diarrhea problems and had a worm on his belly, i took him to the vet, and he was diagnosed with parvo virus (spelt wrong i think). he was then sent to oxford and was in 24hr care. we had a phone call the next week saying he didn’t make it, i was so upset we lost thought we lost a lot of money but because we did petplan insurance first thing we didnt lose any money. TLR [Little Rascals] offered to give the last puppy, but we said no and got our money back. we think it was bad luck because none of the other siblings died. this has caused grief because we cant have another dog until 6 months and we have to clean the house with this prescription cleaner to kill the bug.” (source: Google Reviews)
In spite of the shocking health problems this reviewer lists, apparently her review still warranted THREE stars.
It’s astounding that she deems it purely ‘bad luck‘ her puppy was infected with Parvovirus (and she couldn’t possibly know first hand whether the rest of the (alleged) litter survived if that information came from Little Rascals – their track record for truth and accuracy is abysmal).
She doesn’t mention seeing any other puppies, so it’s quite possible Little Rascals were falsely advertising this single puppy as part of a litter. It’s something they do often; advertise a litter when there is only one puppy for sale, which usually indicates the puppy has either come from a puppy farmer outside the UK, or from another UK mass-breeder, but trying to instil in some buyers that they should be avoiding multiple breeders in the first place, or at least INSISTING on seeing the mother AND witness mum interacting with her litter, seems pointless.
This reviewer should be aware of the ethics of breeding animals – she breeds (or attempts to breed) hamsters and has a dedicated YouTube channel. Therefore she is no stranger to the Internet, which begs the question, how could she not know that Parvovirus should never, under any circumstances, be present in a newly purchased puppy. In fact, a quick search of ‘Little Rascals Lincoln‘, ‘Little Rascals Reviews’ – or variations thereof – throw up more warnings against buying from these mass breeders than they do promoting them (i.e. Google search ), and most of those are self-promotion anyway. In fact several testimonials on Google reviews are from Little Rascals and employees (Tina Waterfall, Lucy Marsden, Amy Allen, Little Rascals).
And how did this puppy’s obvious symptoms get past the vet inspection that allegedly takes place on a weekly basis?
