Stymie's doing awesome. I should post a pic with an update.. I'll do the tomorrow. Thank you for asking... He's 17 lbs now. Lots of good energy... Loves tearing up the wife's hostas.. Getting pretty good with sit, down and come commands.

Oh No! Their web site is back up!

Do not adopt from here!!!
I adopted Stymie on 5/9/2015.
Within a couple days he showed signs of parvo.
I chose to save him..It took 11 days at the ICU of Angel Animal medical Center in Boston. It cost almost $10K. 
I located another person who's dog was in the same shipment and her Great Pyrness puppy had parvo as well. We tracked each other down after contacting the animal control center in MS as well as the vet who signed the inspection paperwork. The only thing the vet does is visually inspect the animal to see if they look hardy enough for the delivery trip.

I have since seen other complaints (see Better Business Bureau)

There fees were deceptive. No matter whether the adoption fee is $350 or $500. There will be a last minute "Transportation fee" that will get you to a total of $800...
These fees do NOT cover spaying or neutering.
There was NO reimbursement of any fees for receiving a dog with a deadly virus.


In my opinion this place is essentially a puppy mill. They are not taking adequate measures to ensure the health of the animals that they "save".

Guys... I watched these vids in preparation to do the best I could when I was planning on adopting a puppy. However, a couple of days after I rescued the little guy he seemed lethargic... I brought him in to Angell Animal Medical Center and he tested positive for Parvo. 

Originally we thought he would be in for 4-5 days at most, if he made it. However, this seems to be a very aggressive strain. He showed signs that he would survive around the point that we hit what we felt was reasonably affordable so we decided not to stop...I started a gofundme. The goal is 5K... However, my actual medical bill is $10K... I am looking to take on a significant responsibility and cost, but am looking for some help to defray them and make them affordable. Please consider even a small contribution.

Thought we were going to lose him on Saturday. Took a turn for the worst. His blood pressure dropped and he wasn't responding. They gave him neoepinepherin (sp)... Something you'd give to heart attack victims. I resigned to letting Stymie go but wanted to let it settle in my mind before I told the dr...

At $1000/day each day is a difficult decision, but we decided to hold out and see if the blood pressure med would help him buck the odds at this point. Around 1:00am that night the vet said that his blood pressure had risen to normal. It was enough to wait until breakfast. He continued to hang in there and by Sunday afternoon he even took solid food on his own.

This morning he is off the feeding tube (that he pulled out on his own). No more blood pressure med. they don't think he's quite ready to come home today but we're expecting to have him with us tomorrow! Here's a video clip of him from Sunday.

Nice advice... totally agree.
Off topic.... You're an mma coach? Sweet. I'm a black belt in BJJ at Boston Brazilian Jiu Jitsu...

I think what you said... plus I think I need to start moving to a specific schedule of food and taking them out afterwards... I've been leaving the bowl out b/c he was underweight after getting him with parvo!!! But now I think I need a more structured feed schedule... Do you agree with this? Or do you just leave the food bowl out?

We feed our dog once in the morning and once in the evening. But if little man is still skinny you may be better off doing 4 or 5 small meals throughout the day. Our old humane society used to let us foster dogs who needed to gain weight and that's what we did. Worked like a charm. Then we'd taper them back to the twice a day feeds gradually. But see what the vet says, just to be safe. Team Stymie -WI. :)

Got to visit stymie. Hoping that we'll be able to take him home tomorrow. The costs have risen over $10k. If you'd like to help defray some of those costs please consider a donation.

I just adopted little Stymie last week and it turns out that he has Parvovirus which appears to be more aggressive than years past. Since losing my last dog to old age, I've seen a lot of FB posts about the loyalty of the dog and how they are good for our well being. So I think that we owe them t...
