MSU / SPRINGFIELD MO / SOUTHWEST MO FRIENDS — PLEASE READ & SHARE
This is Cleo. She was a starving stray puppy with a big personality, and my husband and I fell in love with her instantly. We sent her for an in-home stay at a local trainer’s house to work on doggy socialization and manners — but we never got to pick her up.
Cleo and her new brother, our other dog Grayson, were left unsupervised in a poorly secured outdoor area at the trainer’s house. While the trainer wasn’t paying attention, the dogs got loose. Cleo ran to the highway where she was hit by a car and killed.
Grayson was lost for a while, but limped back with a hurt leg and some cuts. We’re so happy to have him home and safe again.
The trainer we foolishly trusted with our pups was Tristan Jolivette, who does business under the name T’s Dogs out of Willard, MO. He teaches group classes and does private training throughout SW MO.
Mr. Jolivette is married to a professor at Missouri State University. We know many people in the MSU community recommend Mr. Jolivette’s services to their friends with dogs. Our MSU friends recommended him to us.
Cleo was such a sweet and loving puppy. She deserved to have the very best forever home. We’re so sorry we let her down.
Please share — we don’t want anyone else to lose their precious pup to Mr. Jolivette’s negligence. We don’t want anyone else to have to feel the way we feel right now.
