Service Dog Company Accused Of Scamming Customers
[Source: Disability Scoop]
Briggs Geister decided to buy a service dog from Noelle’s Dogs Four Hope based on the company’s glowing online reviews and its reasonable prices.
Her husband has difficulty walking and uses oxygen due to a terminal lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis and post-polio syndrome. She hoped a service dog would give him companionship and much-needed physical support.
So Geister gave Noelle’s $9,000 for Lilo, a 16-month-old goldendoodle, and paid to have a trainer come to her home in Longmont to teach her to work with the dog. But a few days later, when a nurse came to the door, Lilo barked incessantly and urinated on the floor. Soon after, when Geister took her husband to a doctor’s appointment, the dog growled at doctors.
