I purchased a puppy via PayPal for $2000, in two installments, from Don VanDermyden of Royalty Akitas, to be born in August 2016. By paying ahead, I was guaranteed the pick of the litter, and a "discount". Through email (photos included) and telephone we mutually agreed on the male puppy Kingston, born 8/28/2016 (breeding parents Titan x Misty). Assuming that he would be ready at 10 weeks of age, the following months I attempted numerous times through email and telephone contact to determine a date to pick the puppy up. He continued to lead me to believe that after the health check (10/26/2016) the puppy would be ready to go in 14 days. I remained hopeful, but realized after weeks had passed, and no reply from him, that Mr. VanDermyden had no intention of delivering the puppy that he had sold me. I sent an email requesting a date to pick up the puppy or a refund, or I would be forced to explore legal options. To which he responded by email that he would call as soon as possible. I have never heard from him. Due to the time lapse between my initial payment and finally waiting for the health check, Pay Pal would not refund my money. I filed a claim in San Luis Obispo Superior Court, and a judgement was entered against Mr. VanDermyden, case #16SC-0339, 2/3/2017. He has never offered me any refund nor an explanation. There is no way to recoup my $2000, but more importantly, this caused me grief that I would not want anyone else to have to go through. He committed fraud. I would like to add, that I have owned and raised Akitas, since 1980. I am very experienced with the breed. This is the first time that I have ever encountered any problem with purchasing a dog. It is very disappointing that people with the ethics of Mr. VanDermyden continue to be in the business of selling dogs.
