When a person is telling the truth they don't have to have a good memory! When you lie you can't remember what you said to who! This post is proof! You all should ban together and sue this guy!!!!! I wonder how much money he has made with this scam?Sure wish I would have found this forum prior to sending my $500.00 to Doug Harrington just last month (June 2012). The deposit I sent him was to for a female puppy from the Una ("FCI Champion "DAM") that was Doug's favorite female..elaborated how sweet this dog was, wonderful disposition, etc... Even sent me pics of Una's sire, a surbian champion! I too became suspicious when Doug first told me he was headed to Denver or Colorado Springs kennel to visit his kennel. As he was driving on the interstate, Doug was describing how bad the smoke from the forest fires was in that area, and he was concerned about his dogs. Informed me that the Una was in labor and fearful that they were going to have to take her C-section. Contacted Doug one week later to check on the litter, and Doug informed me that they were still watching Una closely, and most likely going to have to take her C-section the next day. Amazing a dog can be in labor for an entire week which was my first "red flag". Contacted Doug a few days later, and "Oh yes", the pups were delivered C-section (a liter of five) and only one female. Assured me she would be our puppy, however, they were watching the new pups closely so that Una would not lay on them and suffocate them. Doug also informed me that the gal that does his internet site would be updating soon and show the pics of the litter. One week later, I go to the website for "Von Eisenhart Rottweilers", and find that there is an announcement, that the litter has arrived and that there are four males and one female available FOR SALE! Wait a minute...that's my female! So I call Doug, another excuse that the gal running his internet site is mistaken. So I asked if I could come to the kennel and see the pups, AND Una. Doug said that would not be possible because Una was very aggressive, (earlier he elaborated on how gentle Una was), and he also did not want to take the chance of exposing the pups to any viruses. O.K.., so I asked if I could contact the kennel, which he earlier had told me was run by a lady. Again, he came up with an excuse and, the answer was no. I then asked if the person running the kennel could take a picture of Una, and the pups and send that to me. Suggested a picture either on her phone, or to my email. Another excuse, and that would not be possible. Then, Doug informed me that he would bring both Una and the "Sire" Mark (also FIC Champion) along when I picked up the puppy 8 weeks. Said I could take pictures with them, and even "kiss them on the nose if I want". Wow, now the dogs are remarkably not vicious anymore. He then. made the mistake, of telling me that when he brings the puppies from the kennel in NEBRASKA in a couple of months...NEBRASKA? You were earlier telling me the kennel was in COLORADO! I immediately knew there was a problem and began searching online, and now have found this forum. As others, I too sent the contract and a $500.00 check to this man, which was run through his bank upon his receipt. To date, I have not received a signed contract back from him, with the excuse that he couldn't get the FAX to go through...poor excuse considering the FAX is a valid number used in a busy office. I have since contacted Doug and informed him I do not feel comfortable with all the stories, and lack of a contract, and requested he send my $500.00 back. He claims he will gladly refund my money because his family is upset with him for selling the only female from litter anyway. That was on 7/16/12. Later that day, he did then send me a picture to my email of a litter of five puppies laying in a pile sleeping, no adult dog. Interesting that considering he had mentioned to me several times earlier that he had received "Kennel of the Year Award" in the past, that the picture of the pups was laying on linolium, and the perimeter floor trim pictured was smeared with feces. Looks like a utility room that needs a good cleaning rather than an award winning kennel to me. As an earlier post suggested, I have contacted folks involved in the Kennel club that breed Rottweilers. Several folks are familiar with Doug Harrington, and the scam he has been running for YEARS! I even spoke to a reputable breeder in another state that said many in the kennel club are familar with this particular man, and his scam. Considering he only takes us for $500.00, people do not pursue legal action due to the time and effort involved. I've got news for you Mr. Harrington. Either I get my $500.00 back within one week, or I too will be visiting with the Jefferson County Sheriffs office. I have already called their office and left a message. Another note; after reading earlier posts, I have no doubt that something was going to unfortunately happen to this particular female he took my deposit for. The way he kept elaborating how at risk this one female was, and how they were protecting her from Una with a divider within the kennel so she wouldn't laid on, etc...I have no doubt the female pup would have been supposibly "suffocated" by Una, and he would have to offered me a replacement. Who knows if Doug even has a female "Dam" named Una! Shame on you Doug Harrington!
