Default Evelyn Lutz Middleville, Michigan dishonest breeder review

I posted a thread on the general yorkie forum about what happened to me but thought I should post the sellers information here so anyone else in Michigan can steer clear. I was going to purchase a puppy from Evelyn Lutz in Michigan(in Middleville, close to Caledonia). She advertises at local vets and this week has an ad coming out in the Grand Rapids Press. Anyway, when I came to pick out a puppy she increased her price(raised it to $4500!!) and told me I could buy a larger one for $3,000. Even though we had already agreed on price and she had told me I could choose which ever one I wanted and I visited every week(also bringing her gifts). I was floored and my 10 year old son, who went with me couldn't believe that she lied "right to my face" as he put it.
She doesn't have a website but uses two different phone numbers:
269-484-4795
616-260-0015

Also she was trying to tell me that she had her 2 pound female just bred She has 8 yorkies plus puppies that she mainly keeps outside all day. She will also use pictures of her smaller dogs to advertise puppies that are from completely different lines and parents. Needless to say, I didn't buy from her too many warning bells.

She bred a 2 lb Female ? That's just sickening and anyone can see how wrong that is - that poor girl

I posted in your other thread but good for you putting the word out on her - she sounds dishonest, money hungry and totally UNCARING about her dogs and customers - it's breeders like her that give others a bad name

Its sad that there are people out there like that... Sorry for your bad encounter. You did the right thing by making others aware of this and hopefully she'll loose a few potential buyers by this...

Yes! That link of the winners in Nevada does show her. How funny is that?

It really wasn't the amount she was asking that bothered me so much(although it's a ridiculous amount IMHO). It was that she introduced herself to me a year ago because she thought my yorkie was beautiful and I trusted her. I visited her a few times over the past year and when I went through an online scam she told me I should have just bought one from her(she travels for half the year so she wasn't around when I was first looking).

It's bad enough when a stranger tries to scam you but it's worse when it's someone you treated as a friend(before I was even considering buying a puppy from her I would bring her dogs treats or drop off yorkie things I thought she'd like). I really did not see this coming because she called ME and I never thought that the amount I agreed to pay wouldn't be enough money for her. It's only now that I can see all the times she'd lie to suit herself.

I just got the new dog id tags in the mail that I ordered, including one I had made for my new puppy. I feel so much anger and sadness.

That is so sad what happened to you and what she is doing to potential yorkie buyers. I would be so sad and hurt as well.

She's now selling on livedeal. Just a warning for those out there:
http://www.livedeal.com/ShowItemDeta...y=2034&br=true

This breeder(or as I call "greed-er") should be avoided if you don't want heartache and a lot of stress, your choice taken away or the price raised.

She's now started her own website:
http://www.geocities.com/elyorkies/Yorkies.html

She has the puppy for sale for $6,000.

I also see she has a male for sale that she has said is 2.5 pounds and he was much bigger than that in person.

My heart just breaks everytime I think of this horrible person.

i wonder if she acutally sells those puppies for that much? heck, mine are priced at one-sixth that and I still can't sell them!!!!!!!!!! Maybe if I stick them in a "teacup".

Just an update, hoping that anyone who searches after finding her site sees this. She added weights to her site and they are of course, lies.

She has Ezzie as 2 pounds(she told me 3 3/4 lbs and that was quite some time ago and that she was 3 years old not 5) and the poor dog only has one eye, her male-Hank as 2 pounds(he's over 3 pounds too which I think you can even tell from that picture, he's probably closer to 4). She did have one female that was two pounds(the one she was bragging she had bred, named Bella, who she bred to Hank who is larger of course. I know most breeders know not to breed a larger male to a smaller female, which I told her.

I'm hoping that anyone who stumbles on her ads knows to do a Google search before buying. YT threads always show up. Thankfully! It's saved quite a few buyers on here.

I hope buyers know that if you catch a breeder in a lie to know that it's most likely NOT the only lie they've told you.

Default E. Lutz

Having just joined this thread I am amazed at how everyone is so quick and willing to take someones word for actual fact. I have purchased two Yorkies from Evelyn Lutz over the past three years and several others from other breeders in the Michigan area. I had contact with Mrs Lutz out West and then followed up after she returned here to Michigan. I cannot say anything but good about her. Her prices quoted were exactly as we had discussed and the dogs I picked out were indeed the very ones we wanted and received. I did not pay anything close to the amount that someone posted here as both of them were under $1000.00. I am however aware that she has some for greater amounts based on size, confirmation, color, pedigree etc. I was pleased to have a price range to select from.I have seen the little Hank she uses for her breeding, in fact I have one of his puppies, and after reading some of these posts I took my own digital scale with me and he is just over two pounds which is the weight represented by Mrs. Lutz. I am questing the possibility of if there is a vindictive spirit being presented here as a so called warning to perspective buyers. It does seem like there are always two sides to be heard from before making a judgement call. I would hope that if someone had a problem with my business they would come to me so we could try and resolve it in a professional manner. Sometimes I know that this cannot be done, but I feel everyone should at least try it before posting negative and harmful information about someone. In view of the crime on the internet and in our communities I certainly would find it very caustic to have my name address and phone number displayed for anyone to use. Mrs Lutz lost her husband many years ago and is somewhat more exposed than many of us.
I love the Yorkies we have raised and am proud of the level of care we provide for them. If I needed someone to watch our dogs during a family emergency I would not have any problem with Mrs Lutz doing it if she would agree to it. I am in my late sixties as is my wife and we have learned to look for all sides before making decisions. I would hope all of us would do the same. Sometimes these post are based on personal goals and may or may not represent fairly all the facts. We each have a responsibility to check out information for ourselves before participating with something that could potentialloy ruin someones business or reputation.
