Have you seen the hash tag around twitter or facebook?? Hopefully you have!

This is Chewy with his boy Evan
Ya see, the org that scammed us Warren Retrievers, SDWR, Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers, or whatever name they are using now has taken this dog away from Evan and he needs him back! They have resorted to the unthinkable this is just a disgrace and disgust me. How dare they think this is ok.

I want to share their story:
"Evan was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on October 9th, 2011. Within a couple months of his diagnosis, things turned for the worse very quickly. It was impossible to get a handle on his crazy blood sugars. Since I am also a type 1 myself, the stress was causing my health to decline. My husband and I started researching for diabetic alert dog companies, hoping these amazing dog could help us watch over our son.

Hours upon hours of research later, we chose Warren Retrievers because the owner, Dan Warren, called us personally and assured us that he was going to take amazing care of us. Another thing that was appealing to us was the fact that Warren delivered the dog to our home. We wouldn’t have to travel anywhere and take time off work to get the dog.

Chewy was delivered to us on August 2, 2012. She was 13 weeks old and was only obedience trained. In order for us to keep Chewy, we had to sign a contract. If we didn’t sign the contract that day, the trainer was going to have to take Chewy away and we would lose the $1,000 deposit we already gave the company. Financially, we were in no place to lose that money and we had already fallen in love with the dog. We looked over the contract and we were extremely concerned. We signed it anyway, and it was under duress.

We only had two training sessions from WR. The first, when she was delivered. The second, 90 days later. Soon after, we were hearing rumors that Dan was running a puppy mill and was running a shady business. When we started calling Dan to ask about the rumors and try to clear things up, he stopped communication with us completely. He kicked us out of the WR Facebook pages and stopped responding to our emails.

A few months later, Chewy started losing a lot of weight and wasn’t eating well. We took her to the vet and found out she had a birth defect called a hooded vulva. A lot of female dogs are born with this and it is an easy fix if you get the surgery done before the dog is spayed. Dan Warren knew about the birth defect and he was supposed to release this information to us before selling us the dog. By this time we were beyond upset and made the decision to stop paying on our balance. We had already paid just over $7,000 towards and dog and we felt that was more than enough.

When we found out about the birth defect, we emailed Dan’s attorneys with the paperwork from the vet and within an hour we got a response from Warren saying that he would forgive the rest of our debt and we could keep Chewy as long as we signed a gag order. We refused because he had already hurt so many families and we didn’t feel right doing it. Since we declined, he sued us in Virginia, along with several other families who owed him money for untrained dogs. Just a day before we were to go to trial, Dan dismissed most of the cases and that was the last we had heard from him.

Since Chewy was never trained properly, we paid to have her trained by another D.A.D. company, Heads Up Hounds. They were able to train Chewy as a true diabetic alert dog, and since she has been trained with them, she hasn’t missed one low blood sugar.
Now, nearly eight months later, he filed a motion to get the dog away from us because he “feared for the safety of the dog.” The sheriff came to our house and took Chewy away without any notice. Our hearts were broken. She was a part of our family and she has been with us for nearly two years.

She has been a constant companion for Evan and we are lost without her. A part of our family was taken away by an evil man, and we need her back before he can hurt her. Yes, Mr. Warren, sue us for the money we still “owe” you. Take us to court to try and get every single last penny you think you deserve, but don’t take our sons best friend away from him. Don’t take the one thing that has given us comfort the past two years since Evan’s diagnosis. What you did is wrong and we will get Chewy back. "
