In December 2020 Barb stated she needed imaging for a recent pull named Foxy - it was obvious she was limping and experiencing pain at that time. The imaging was never completed and instead Doggedly sent Foxy and her sibling to Washington via ground transport mid January 2021. These dogs had no plan so they were sent to a last minute foster home with Foxy's current adopter Christine. It was obvious to her at that time that Foxy was having issues as well but Barbara claimed it was "probably stiff from transport" and put the foster off. In Feburary after being blown off for weeks Foxy's now adopter, Christine asked to talk to Barb on the phone - as you can see Barb was sending snarky private messages about her at that time - and Barb convinced her that Foxy didn't need vet care - what she needed was physical therapy and "a weight pull harness." Barbara has never even seen a weight pull harness in person and this advice is extremely dangerous and reckless. Foxy's adopter tried conservative care and PT until November 2021 - where it was obvious her hip was not improving. She reached back out to Doggedly who originally agreed to help with Foxy's vet care but was told she would need to send Foxy back to Texas to have the surgery. Foxy's family was not comfortable with sending their ailing dog on a stressful transport back to Texas - even if it meant free surgery - so instead they suggested that Doggedly pay the amount it would have cost to have it done in Texas and they would pay the rest. Doggedly left these messages on read and never spoke to the adopter again. Now they are left with a nearly 5 thousand dollar vet bill for a puppy they paid a hefty adoption fee for in the first place.

Amelia was a boxer mix puppy who Barbara took into Doggedly around October 2020 with a broken jaw that had healed incorrectly. According to Barb, Amelia would need surgery to correct the old injury since Amelia wasn’t able to open her mouth the way she needed to. Amelia never received that surgery and was transported to the Pacific Northwest where she was adopted. As you can see multiple veterinary professionals advised this dog get additional care.
Keke was one of the dogs pulled from the shelter after the A Chance to Bloom eviction from DogTown. Keke had allegedly had a stroke, had horrible skin, awful nails, infected eyes etc., She received very basic and minimal vetting prior to adoption.
