Cynthia M., I had to comment after reading your review. My mini Aussie, now age 8, came from Brule Creek Kennel, via Russo's. He was diagnosed with congenital medial patella luxation in both back knees after 1yr, 2mos, so we weren't even eligible for the 150% of purchase price towards vet fees. When I informed Russo's they didn't much seem to care since it didn't cost them anything. Well, it cost me $6,000 for two knee surgeries, not including the 6 month recoveries, special slings, containment areas, and life-long prescriptions to reduce inflamation. Obviously, they haven't changed much in the past 8 years. If you care, email the Irvine City Council to vote yes on their animal welfare ordinance coming up for a vote soon. email: IrvineCC@cityof Irvine.org. Our surgeries enabled our dog to still be walking at age 8 and I wish you the best success with your pet.
