Very snippy breeder

Waited until the day I was instructed to call. Placed the call at 9:02am to inquire about a puppy. I was told they were spoken for. I called back to inquire how to speak for one. A deposit? Cannot do that. Icily told me I wasnt the only person wanting a Westie. Not a nice person to deal with. Told him he wouldnt have to worry about me bothering him again.

User's recommendation: Find another breeder.

I was told we had to leave a 500 DOLLAR NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT. (It's refundable if something happens on their side side...) Big woop.

I was emphatically told we cannot see or interact with the puppy we are buying. Rediculous, outrageous and totally shady policy.

Buying a puppy is a personal experience that should include how the puppy relates to you. My brief conversation convinced me to flush the notion of ever purchasing from this establishment.

Bichon frise puppy

We purchased our bichon frise little girl almost two years ago from Foxcreek and she has been amazing. She has a wonderful personality and has had zero health issues. We’ve kept her on the food and treats suggested by Jessica and we could not be happier. With all the horror stories about who to buy or not buy from I can tell you foxcreek is for real and my dog wouldn’t be so wonderful if Jessica hadn’t spoiled her and treated her with so much love as a puppy. Thank you

Horrific

We got our dog two months ago and he has congenital liver shunt. It took thousands of dollars to get him diagnosed and it will take over $10,000 for his surgery. There are only 3 clinics in the whole country where they can performe the surgery. He might need additional surgeries. He can die at any time before the surgery. Please do not be fooled by the fake reviews.

Have you talked with the breeder about this? These dogs come with a guarantee as I remember.

#1707588

I am sorry your new pet has issues like this - not fun for anyone. Many breeds are predisposed to liver shunts and show no signs prior to becoming sick.

But, there are literally dozens of clinics in every state in this country that can perform the surgery, if it is a repairable shunt. If it is microvascular dysplasia, surgery is not possible, but medicine can help. A veterinary specialist certified in soft tissue surgery would be required, but those are pretty common these days. Ten thousand dollars is around 2.5 times the cost for this surgery in our area, and we are in a pretty annoyingly expensive area of Maryland near DC.

I implore you, if this is the advice you have received, please seek a second opinion. A shunt is expensive, but not that expensive.

That’s terrible the Breeder should pay at least half of these costs.

@PissedConsumer1707588

If the breeder had done a bile acid test on the puppy before it was sold, then you and they would have known of this health challenge.A reputable breeder will test for genetic health problems in their puppies and adults.

Gorgeous Gentle AKC Westie Male Puppy

My sister and I just purchased a male Westie puppy from Jessica and Joe Wistuk at Foxcreek Kennels in Virginia. He was a present for our mother and we could not be more thrilled. He is a gorgeous representation of the breed, champion father Quincy. His temperament is near perfect, lively but very obedient and very smart. I brought him home at 9 weeks pictures enclosed. He is now 5 months old and he just gets better and better. Jessica really takes her time, she selects the dog for you, she reserves the right to change her mind if you are not the right owner. I highly recommend her, and also recommend taking the time to listen to her insights, she is very knowledgeable regarding their food and care. I always have four Labradors and consider myself a fairly experienced dog owner.

My Westie, Bimmer

My fellow’s parents were JR and Winnie. Born 8-06. He has been a joy from day 1. He has no temper. Had only growled when a very playful Aussie got too playful. He went through 6 months of chemo with me and was a real champ. Aside from all of that he is very handsome. We are both aging so we suit each other. A wonderful companion. I cannot complain or diss Foxcreek. They have outstanding dogs. They matched Bimmer to me and they knew best. I can’t imagine saying they have s puppy mill. Their dogs appear to be well cared for and healthy. Sometimes things don’t work out but that is life.

Wonderfully healthy Scottish Terrier puppies!

I contacted Jessica about a Scottie puppy several years ago and was completely impressed with her love and knowledge of the breed and the fact that she shows her dogs. I’ve purchased 2 Scottie’s myself and am beyond pleased with their health and temperament. I get compliments on them anytime I take them out in public with me. My Vet was completely impressed with the health of the puppies and the paperwork i was provided with. I’ve recommended this kennel to family and friends who also purchased puppies from her. The dogs are healthy and friendly and the facility was clean and beautiful. I will continue to purchase from Foxcreek and will continue to recommend them!

I bought a dog from them four years ago and my dear dog developed lymphoma and just passed. I tried to contact them to inform them of who the parents were of our dog and no contact back from them. I guess it is of no concern of them since they got their money.

Shortly after our beloved Cairn, Pippin, passed in early 2016, I began searching for regional Cain Terrier breeders. I was impressed with several located in Virginia, including Fox Creek. I have to admit that in this age of electronics I was somewhat displeased with the fact the only form of communication with them is by phone. However, they were quick to respond and after our visit it is understandable their time is well spent caring for their animals and property. We reserved a male puppy. They did not release the pups until they were at least 8 weeks old. It was a very long wait. When we arrived some of their dogs were out front in a well maintained fenced area. All were happy and a down right friendly bunch. We were escorted inside their home where they had a playpen set up with mama Cairn and our new boy. OMG, mama was so happy, even tempered and just a downright typical adorable Cairn. Our boy was “begging” for attention and I tell folks he seemed to be saying “What took you so long? I’ve waiting all morning for you to get here.” He immediately took to us. Great temperament and healthy looking. Hubby was so impressed with Mama Cairn he wanted to take her home. Our Renny never looked back! Seriously, he settled in our arms and we were soon on our way home. He got his vet checkup within a few days and the staff were so impressed with such cuteness and he got a clean bill of health. We still miss our beloved Pippin but Renny is his own little man with his own unique personality. He is the happiest, well adjusted fella and is very much an integral part of our family. I can honestly say that in our dealings with Fox Creek Kennels and the quality Cairn Terrier pup we purchased, I never saw anything to suggest “puppy mill.” We are seriously thinking of adding a third Cairn to the family and will not hesitate to purchase from Fox Kennel.

We purchased a West Highlander White Terrier from Fox Creek Kennels. The dog was Beautiful with NO health issues.

She is the first Westie that didn't have any hot spots or skin allergies. Also, we were able to see the parents. We could not have a better experience and they were very professional. We plan to purchase a Scottish terrier from them.

I would highly recommend them to anyone. George & Bonnie Strickland Chesapeake, VA

Great Experience

My husband and I bought a westie from Fox Creek Kennel and we were so impressed. Our puppy is beautiful with a great personality and he fits in with our family perfectly. He is healthy and had a great health check by our vet. Fox creek's facility is well organized and it is obvious that the animals on the farm are well cared for. My husband and I were surprised to find that our puppy had champion bloodlines and such good breeding as most breeders we considered had never shown their dogs. We recommend anyone looking for a small dog to find one with Fox Creek.

Foxcreek Kennels - Cairn Terrier Dog Review from Buffalo Junction, Virginia
I'm owned by the most adorable Cairn terrier, Kallie Sue, who I got from Foxcreek. Not only is she beautiful, but has the sweetest temperament, loving, gentle, and gets along with all people and other animals. She's going to be 17 in two months, and my vets can't believe she's doing so well at this age.It's simply good genes. One day when she's passed on, I will definitely go back to Foxcreek to purchase another Cairn. If I'm lucky, it will be a relative of Kallie Sue's. I have forwarded several friends to her for dogs and they've also gone back for relatives of their dogs time after time. I know Jessica carefully chooses the best characteristics for her breeding and it shows. In addition to the pleasure of spending my life with Kallie Sue, I am a long time rescue person and have also done countless rescues and rehomes of dogs and horses with Jessica from Foxcreek, over the 17 years I've known her. From when she lived near me in PA and continuing after she moved to VA to build the place of her dreams. She has a big heart and is known in her area for being the Go-To person for anyone in need of this kind of help. Her years being a vet tech has given her a high level of medical experience, and her years of grooming and showing her dogs has given her eye for breeding quality. Together we've fixed up and rehomed all breeds and mixes of dogs, from the purebred to the dog fighting bait dog, and horses on their way to be euthanized because they've outlived their usefulness. If anyone doubts this information, please feel free to contact me. The reason I'm posting this tonight is because I became aware of a bad review someone else posted about her kennel and it made me furious. We have investigated this and found out who posted it and why. It was done by another breeder who Jessica bought a dog from and then found the dog not up to her standards for her breeding program. That breeder decided to trash her publicly with lies in order to affect her sale of puppies to the public (I can give the name privately). I'm surprised this website will let anyone post anything that can ruin reputations without requiring any facts or proof be supplied. Anyone can occasionally have a dog with an issue, and she treats them fairly and according to the adoption contract agreement. I hope this explanation will allay any concerns about the quality of her dogs, their health and the conditions they are kept in. I can't see how anyone wouldn't be happy with a Foxcreek dog or their experience with them.

NUMEROUS FALSE REVIEWS - WRITTEN BY THE SAME PERSON DAYS APART

I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY BUSINESS DEALINGS WITH ANY OF THESE REVIEWERS. ALL REVIEWS ARE FALSE AND UNTRUE. This person has repeatedly written numerous false reviews about me, Jessica, owner of Foxcreek. Please be aware that she has written all these reviews only days apart from each other. False claims of sick, dirty and ill puppies. Using different names or going by anonymous. She continues to write such off the wall things about supposed continued illness's with puppies purchased. This person needs to be stopped as she apparently has chosen me to stalk and write false and slanderous things about. Please do notice all the dates that these reviews were written. Very odd! Within days of each other some on the same day. Especially when she is writing about a time when I did not have puppies. ALL THESE REVIEWS ARE FALSE

Foxcreek Kennels Bichon Dog Review

I would strongly suggest that if you are thinking of buying a puppy from Jessica @ Fox Creek Kennels I would look up the definition of a "puppy mill" first. This is the definition via the ASPCA: A puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs—who are often severely neglected—and acts without regard to responsible breeding practices. I have never dealt with a breeder as rude as Jessica and her husband was. Purchased a Bichon puppy and couldn't say the experience was anything short of a nightmare. Poor dog came with a number of parasites, and any vet we speak to has confirmed the dogs condition is 100% due to extremely poor conditions from the breeder/kennel. The dog suffered from coprophagia (eating it's own ***) typically a habit they adopt due to very dirty conditions in the kennel. They eat their own *** because they usually get stuck laying in other dogs *** when the breeder does not clean after the dogs. The dog also never came with AKC registration after repeated attempts to get any information or pedigree documentation. I spent close to $3,000 in vet expenses due to the condition of the dog when it first arrived as it also was diagnosed with a cold that it needed antibiotics for. The puppy was regurgitating food and we had to do a ultrasound of its belly to make sure there were no obstructions. The breeder also had directed us to feed the dog 3 ½ CUPS of food per day. After doing research it is confirmed that 3 ½ cups a day will kill the dog. It only needed 1-1 1/4 cup at the most. In an industry where there is plenty of competition, do yourself a favor and go with a reputable breeder that does not treat their customers, or more importantly, the dogs this way. I will be filing a formal complaint with the buffalo junction animal control and also filing a fraud report with AKC. I am sick of the BS with this breeder. I normally dont do online reviews but I thought I would try and spare others from the head ache and expenses that ive endured from dealing with this breeder.Someone needs to shut her down.

We know who you are writing all these false reviews about sick puppies and Foxcreek being rude.

If your own sickly Scottish Terrier puppies were taken care of better with all the time you spend making false reviews of Foxcreek you would be able to sell them and provide better health care for them.

Why not try investing your wasted time in cleaning and caring for your own parasite infested ill cared for puppies.

#1238094

My kids used their allowance and purchased a Westie from Jessica about 1 1/2 years ago and she had all kinds of health issues when we took her to the vet the day after getting her. We contacted Jessica and he said he would send them another puppy.

Well we have no new puppy and we still have the same sick one that has cost us a fortune. Jessica does not honor her guarantee. She is nothing but a liar and rip off.

What a scam artist!!! We have all the vet records to prove our case.

#1338672
@PissedConsumer1238094

Oh please do provide proof of your vet records.

We would all love to see them.

Also please include proof of purchase, like your receipt and 1 year health guarantee that came with your puppy when you picked it up at their home...since they don't ship like you do!

This person is the same person with ALL the bad reviews written about Foxcreek. Look at the dates for all these supposed sick puppies. All done in November.Within days of each other.

This is VERY unprofessional for a breeder of Scottish Terriers to do this to Foxcreek. I think there's some mental issues with this fake poster of "sick" dogs!

Very sad for you to have wasted so much time with consuming yourself with Foxcreek.

Why don't you invest all that time into cleaning your own ill cared for poor quality with ellbow dysplasia Scottie puppies.

#1338698
@PissedConsumer1238094

So Robin From Alabama ....hum.... I mean Anonymous from Hartselle Alabama or do you mean Somerville Alabama?

Sick puppy that they were going to "send " you another!

Foxcreek DOES NOT SHIP. So you would have had to go back to their home to get your supposed replacement puppy. Remember you went there to pick up the original puppy.

Oh you forgot already that your post of a sickly Westie from Foxcreek is nothing but a made up post full of lies. See when you posted all these fake reviews about puppy mills and sick puppies you did them all in November within days of eachother.

So everyone please this person posting all these supposed sick puppy and rude reviews is a breeder of Scottish Terriers that can't sell her poor quality puppies so she has decided to attack Foxcreek.

You left one heck of a trail of your false reviews.

Gosh I would love for you to post proof of your receipt from Foxcreeek as well as the written guarantee that you as well as them filled out and signed. We would all like to see this proof

#1237858

We recently made inquiries on a Cairn Terrier Puppy. I spoke with Jo on the phone & realized he was different but when we met him in person "a *** or_ _ _hole" doesn't come close to describing him.

So glad we didn't purchase a puppy from them.

I wouldn't waste my time with these people. I regret I didn't research them prior.
