EXPOSED: Tina Mahmoud Chuck of Toronto Chihuahua Meetup

“Family” aka Tina Mahmoud Chuck VS. Pet it Chihuahuas

Pet it Chihuahuas gets slandered and ‘attacked’ on social media after selling a chihuahua puppy to Tina Chuck, organizer of the Toronto Chihuahua Meetup group on Facebook.

August 28, 2013:


WARNING: Those wishing to socialize their chihuahuas in Toronto could end up with more than bargained for if you participate in The Toronto Chihuahua MeetUp Group. Members, If you want to join a group that focuses more on slandering and gossiping about others rather than helping the dog community, then BEWARE! Stay far away from this small group of Loonies ( We apologize only a selective few loonies and those loonies know who they are!) . Really, what has this group done for anyone? and why don’t they have any information on the breed, where is the real conversation about the chihuahuas?? Why is the group engaging in conversation about their own BACK YARD BREEDING? Why is Tina Chuck now breeding dogs?

The Real (and whole) Story as Told by Pet it Chihuahuas

Gemma Chihuahua Purchased from Pet it Chihuahuas by Tina

September 2012: Tina calls Pet it Chihuahuas in response to a Lavender blue chihuahua puppy advertised for sale. She, always wanting a dog of that colour makes arrangements to meet, and place deposit on the puppy shortly after. Within three days, she came to our house, met our dogs and purchased the puppy. There was no inquiry about disposition, health, or even of meeting the parents. We explained to her the bloodlines (lineage) of her puppy “Gemma”. She came Canadian Kennel Registered from the same bloodlines of two of our breeding  dogs Berlin and StormChaser, two of our chihuahuas whom she had met at our house. TINA WAS AWARE AS WE EXPLAINED, THE DOG WAS NOT BORN AT OUR HOUSE. If we were so sketchy and dishonest, then maybe she shouldn’t have purchased the dog from us to begin with. Gemma in relation to our dogs is a sister to Berlin and Daughter to Stormy’s Dad. She seemed in different and did not ask a lot of questions even after we explained to her.  Good businesses and people learn and grow from their mistakes, we now have much stricter guidelines when it comes to purchasing a dog from us, and now require even more paper work than before.

Storm Chaser

BACK GROUND NOTE: Storm Chaser was purchased in June 2011: from Laura Majic of “Majic Farms“. We were in search of a registered Long Coat Blue chihuahua that was show quality to be our main stud. Handsome boy but turned out he was tipping 8lbs way to large to be a stud or show potential. We purchased him for $1200 (papers arrived 1 year later). Rehomed at  one and a half years old to a loving Pet home for $300.

Berlin and Panda Poo was purchased together in for the intention of breeding October 2010: from Cara Herron.  Berlin ended up having Grade 3 Luxating Patella, and Panda Poo suffered from a severe case of Giardia at a young age resulting in neurological issues and cherry eye. Neither dogs being show quality or to breed standard as promised by the breeder, they

Berlin

were spayed/neutered re-homed. Other dogs we have purchased from this breeder was our first Long Coat Chihuahua ‘JigSaw’. We loved Jiggy so much despite his left floppy ear which made us seek her out again to purchase Berlin and Panda Poo.

After obtaining Stormy’s papers one year later and in the mean time gaining some exposure and attention with our newly built professional and informative website www.petitchihuahuas.com, Laura Majic approached us asking for help selling her puppies since she was having a difficult time. Assuming that because our dogs shared bloodlines and we had similar interests in mind, we agreed to help her out by selling two of her puppies (Gemma and her brother) for her.  BIG MISTAKE! We take full ownership of taking these dogs in and trying to find them a GOOD home. Breed specific breeders are usually a tight knit group, us making the assumption that breeders should help each other out was our misconception. We were very naive, and then we saw the horrific conditions of the kennel…. (separate story coming soon!!). Anyone who has been to our house knows that we are clean-a-holics! We have, and maintain a standard of cleanliness we would assume is required for raising dogs (and a family!). Apparently, that is not the common standard. As we have witnessed first hand, most breeders houses are disgusting and borderline hoarders.  (comment if you disagree).

Back to Tina. We sold her Gemma Sept 23 2012. As a Canadian Kennel Club Registered female PET companion. Gemma was not show quality nor suitable to be bred which did not phase Tina as she was looking for neither. Tina was looking for a chihuahua solely based on COLOUR, and SIZE. Blue, and small. Us, pet it chihuahuas being naive  since she was the founder of the The Toronto Chihuahua Meet up Group, thought that she would be a suitable home since he had had some chihuahua experience before. Only later would we discover selling her a chihuahua was another BIG MISTAKE (and headache) we would soon regret!

pet it dogs canadaTINA and the BED “Issue”

Tina Chuck wanted to purchase a dog bed from our new collection of luxury iron pet beds. She wanted it in her favorite colour: grape purple. No problem! We had it custom sprayed in her colour. The bed was ready and she was contacted. She never came to pick it up so offered a suggestion to bring it to her to one of the meet ups. In the midst of all this, we were also very busy with a big move. Preoccupied with moving 100kms away with our two toddlers and chihuahuas, we were unable to attend the meet ups. She never got the bed as she did not want it mailed or picked up her self.

Fine, you never got the bed, we are sorry! But you didn’t pay for it either. We don’t offer a personal personal home delivery on our products. That is Canada Posts job.
END of a (non) BED ISSUE.

Meanwhile, in all these emails going back and forth about meet ups and beds, we never once got a complaint about any health or behavioral issues of any major concern only info on her health as noted below in her email to us Oct 22, however she asked in every single email when she would get her CKC papers.

JANUARY 12 2012: DOOMS DAY TINA Has a melt down and threatens to call the police on us after having her dog for less than 4 months. NOTE as mentioned, as she SIGNED the agreement clearly states registration papers can take up to 6 months. Since this dog was not for show NOR breeding, there is no immediate urgency, other than the fact she is demanding.

Here is her rather rude, threatening and inappropriate email:

Call the Police on Pet it Now


Tina Mahmoud Chuck gemmaWe sent this email to Tina after some more unnecessary back and forth, she claiming people in her group are ‘bad mouthing us’ (QUOTE email Date: Wed, 16 Jan 2013 17:22:40 -0400 “Plus I should mention there 2 people from the meet up group that said a few things about you guys (they did not have nice things to say). Which really started to worry me and make me wonder. Since from meeting you both you both seem like honest good people.”) Are we in high school drama gossip club or are you running an event to benefit chihuahuas and their owners??? PS-who are these people? Bert and Ernie???

GEMMA’s sudden development of ‘behavioral’ and Social Issues arise after 4 months of having the dog, after threatening us with the police and CKC. She now wants to suddenly rehome Gemma.

CKC REGISTRATION Gemma Lil Stroller

CKC REGISTRATION COPY Gemma Lil Stroller. Wait, she is registered after all? You mean I wasn’t scammed? i can breed, show and sell her now??

We told Tina we would help her via email even after this back and forth “If you decide that this choice is too hard an you cannot find her a new home, yes of course we would like to help resolve what issues she has and give some tips! Wish you could have just let us know this to begin with to avoid this headache”. Tina Chuck did not want our help, instead she harassed us nearly every day with phone calls emails demanding her papers. We talked to her on the phone multiple times with no resolution. She refused to offer any sort of apology or reasonable act of decency. Instead she acted like a spoiled child and THEN she actually did it! The silly woman actually called the POLICE on us for not getting her Papers! Wow! As a tax payer I would expect that police are fulfilling their duty like upholding the law, and finding missing people, not missing papers.

Meanwhile, still waiting for the papers to be completed from Laura Majic, she is no where to be found. Multiple attempts to contact her to arrange for the papers to be completed failed. Likely because we did not anything else to do with her dogs and kenneling situation after she contacted us about purchasing a blue tcup chihuahua for $1000. We declined.

We talked to the police and told them the story. We also told them that she had taken things too far with threats, and unnecessary attacks. Once she apologized, then we would proceed. Time goes on, no apology, no papers!! Could we have gotten papers sooner, Yes. Did we want to, NOPE!

THE CRAZY TINA CHUCK gets even CRAZIER!

May owners who happily own a Pet it Chihuahua are also members of Tina’s meet up group. We were informed June 20, 2013 on another unnecessary, one sided post filled with lies, name calling and pure stupidity! READ IT HERE ! https://www.facebook.com/groups/4957268818/permalink/10151617037588819/ Maybe members of your group should support preserving a breed standard rather than bastardizing and tarnishing what the breed standard is supposed to be. Did you know a large majority of the Toronto Chihuahua Meetupgroup BREEDS UNREGISTERED chihuahuas including TINA herself??

Cherry on the top, Tina pretended she was a ‘family’ she IS THE FAMILY. This post is based on her own PERSONAL experience not some ‘family of so and so’ as she claims on Facebook. She goes as far as to accuse us of sending her fake papers, and writing a whole post on her ‘situation’ WHO HAS THE TIME FOR THIS? We are busy people, and do not want to engage or be involved in your petty childish, drama. Oh yea, the informer got banned from the group for posting her positive experience, you are sooooo awesome Tina.

MEANWHILE July 2013: Laura Majic finally gets back to us and completes the papers after getting the CKC involved. She completes them wrong, and has to be resubmitted resulting in another delay. Tina Chuck has be CC:’d in All the emails from the CKC. AS TINA IS AWARE, CKC papers were indeed completed and transferred to her name as of AUGUST 26 2013. Too bad Tina Chuck decided to get rid of Gemma and now the new owners will have to pay CKC another sum of money to get her registered properly.

AUGUST 28 2013: It does not stop there! Tina Mahmoud Chuck continues to harass adding more ‘fuel’ to the fire by posting ads on KIJIJI, STEALING our pictures and re-posting them online with the intent to slander and harass us further in attempts to ‘take us down’. Your fake stories from ‘anonymous’ sources don’t make you look any more sane.

To the Toronto Chihuahua Meet up group and Tina Mahmoud who continues to harass others and backyard breed chihuahuas.  STOP LYING BEHIND FAKE EMAILS AND SOCIAL MEDIA AND STAND UP FOR YOUR SELF. WE WILL NOT ENTERTAIN YOUR DRAMA AND ‘ISSUES’ ANY LONGER.

YOU HAD A HEALTHY REGISTERED DOG, TO WHOM YOU BOUGHT SOLELY BASED ON THE COLOUR AND HAD A TEMPER TANTRUM LIKE A SPOILED BRATTY CHILD WHEN YOU DID NOT GET YOUR WAY.

People who have come to meet us and our chihuahuas are always pleasantly surprised on not only their conditions, but temperament, beauty and conformation. We will always strive to raise the healthiest, most beautiful chihuahua dogs in Ontario. I don’t know of any breeder who has taken the time to build a website offering as much health, training and socialization information as we have, all while building our own small dog apparel brand known worldwide. We take pride in offering one of the best health guarantees and SPAY/NEUTER rebate for all dogs we sell, as well as consistently bettering the breed within the GTA. If you think breeding purebred dogs is about money, then you are misinformed and missing the point. OUR REPUTATION FROM OUR PET IT COMMUNITY SPEAKS FOR IT’S SELF. If you do not agree with our breeding practices, do not like our information, clothing, or articles on chihuahuas, then we are sorry, don’t visit us. www.petitdogs.com & www.petitchihuahuas.com

DO YOUR RESEARCH, THINK FOR YOURSELVES, ACT RESPONSIBILITY!
