Complaint / review / scam report
South African Canine Breed Registry

Please note that SACBR registration or any other canine breed registry means absolute nothing only KUSA is recognized.
The SACBR core values and code of ethics is just empty promises and pretty words. It is nothing for a backyard breeder to register and sell.

I bought a weimaraner puppy for R5000 from Winterfell Kennels breeders Pieter Fourie and Morne Nagel. At 4 months I'll have to put her down after a R20 000 vet bill for MRI's and various blood test etc. She has spina bifida and laryngeal paralysis polyneuropathy complex all from a bad genetic blood line from both parents my vets made it clear to inform all that they are not allowed to breed any furhter with these so called pure bred dogs. SACBR response just a shoulder shrug - not we will take this breeder immediately of our list, no membership money is much more important the innocent animals!

Please be especially careful to buy from breeders advertising on sites for. e.g. Junkmail; Gumtree; OLX etc. If you do ensure that you see BOTH parents and the conditions they are bred and raised in. Breeders that bred for the love of the race are usually strict and don't just sell a puppy.

I have had the same experience with SACBR Phillip Lesage, I purchased two Yorkis from Sharloms Yorkitique a Breeder in Rustenburg, when I fetched my first puppy she still did not have her injections meaning that i have to drive all the way back from Johannesburg to Rustenburg to get the injections done as she did not have the products, I was promised that Christelle Pretorius owner will get my registration documents ready as I agreed with her to pay the doggy off and as I was able to pay off I decided to take another baby girl. I was told that when I go and fetch the other girl the injections and the registration and immunization cards will be ready and was planning to do the final payment of the full outstanding amount then, but when I got there she did not have injections but did have the products. this is extremely far for me to drive and Christelle gave me the bottles and told me to inject the doggy's myself. I am not a vet or have the know how and this was not part of the arrangement. yet I kept my cool and took the products (immunization) from her as I cannot keep driving up and down. i had to google how to do the injections and was told by her to inject the full bottle. each puppy a full bottle. only after I have injected them I was told that that is not how it works by a friend of mine and that they need to be weight to establish how much of the injection iu's they must get. this could have killed my puppy's that I am paying thousands of rand's for. I am still outstanding R2500 for the off-payment of my Yorke's and still have not received my registration document for the first puppy that has been paid off already. I have asked her to get the documents - immunization cards and the registration documents from KUSA ready, but she insisted that i transfer the money to her account immediately, i only have a balance of R2500 outstanding and am not prepared to pay it into her account and then have to struggle and beg for my registration and immunization docs for my two puppy's. she became abruptly rude and started harassing me for the rest of the money but no mention on the required documentation. I refused and said there is no way i am paying until she let me know when I can collect the documentation and then I will pay her the R2500 in cash on receipt of the documentation. she insists that people pay enormous amounts in advance for the dogs as deposits even before they receive the dogs. she has now started making remarks and slandering my name on social media and on my business social media page as well as sending messages to my clients. I had to really do my homework to find out who she is registered with and found that she is registered with SACBR, I contacted Phillip Lesage on his cellular number and explained my situation to him, of which I have the recording, I was told that he knows Christelle and that I must send him an email - I was however constantly interrupted while I was trying to explain to him what the situation was and shut down, when I said to him that this is unacceptable that they as the registrar is not doing a thing and being extremely rude he told me I am stupid and put the phone down in my ear. I then contacted KUSA for assistance and has discussed the situation with SAPS as well as my attorney. Christelle lied and was never registered with KUSA as they checked if she is registered for me. Chrsitelle continues putting posts on my fb page slandering me and one of the posts actually says that I tried to call her SACBR but he doesn't take it serious. Please stay away from SACBR, they are not interested in the animals cruelty or rules or the standards being upheld by their breeders.
