I also bought a yorkie from this woman out of her condo in Aventura. The dog also died of Parvo. Our vet tried to save the dog, she lived for 10 days. With our vet bill and the $1,000 that we paid for the dog, we have a judgement against Julie for $2,600. She makes no attempt to pay and continues to deny any wrong doing on her part. This happend last March, 2006. We've heard from many other people who've been victimized by Julie Soutullo, Toni, Dixie Pups and Poochie Koochie, all the same women, on my daughter's web site, Stop Dixie Pups.com .

You are an evil person with no heart. You will have miserable things happen to you....you cause pain and suffering to many and you have no soul. You will be caught and stop your lying! Your lies about your husband are sick and twisted keep saying he is having a heart attack cause one day it will come true. Keep up your evil acts and maybe your dream of jail will come true. You live a sick life and feed off of evil. Where are your horns? You have a filthy mouth and obviously never had it washed with soap. How do you live with yourself? How do you even dare to look at yourself? I cannot stress this things evil acts....beware of it...BAN POOCHIE KOOCHIE is the next site in the making!

She will soon pay for this in many ways! For all the victims-we will see justice in the near future!

Someone told me that they saw on the news that she Julie was finally arrested for all the dead puppies. I too was a vitim of Julie's sick dogs when she was located in Hallendale, FL... Is it really true that she was allowed to open up a new store? When I called Tallahassed to report her when my pup died, they knew all about her. They said they have been trying to get her for years, but cant. They also know that she gets her pups in from other countires, yet they still allow her to bring them in.
Was she really finally arrested?

Hello, once again I am another victim who bought a TEACUP yorkie from Julie... which is now 6.5 lbs some teacup. I also paid way more then I should have. I am lucky though my little boy is my pride and joy and still alive. But it’s not a great feeling that tomorrow he may have something wrong with him because of his genes. Julie is extremely rude and has no morals. She is a great liar especially with her above comment... I get my puppies from South America... then why not tell people that instead of lie and say u breed them? Then above she says Tony is from Argentina… um I bought my pup from her and she sent me a birth certificate from Argentina with a different birth date then she told me! She is so deceitful and has no respect for life. I hope she plans on going to hell because that’s where she’s going to end up.

She is possibly the biggest scum bag in the world!!! I have only two words for her and just be happy that you are not an ugly person like her. I hope that your puppy is well and lives a happy life. I can only pray that she suffers like most of the pups do. I am positive that her life will not be long and she will be with the rest of the trash in hell. Contact the Department of Agriculture they are dealing with all of the cases. Also google her and go to the website stop dixie pups and that gives you the forms. Just do not give up I will not until I know that she is finished.

That is so scary! I bought a dog from her in March 2006- he is doing wonderful and is a teacup size. He is very healthy (thank God), but I realized that all of his paperwork is wrong. If his whelping date is actually correct, he was only 4 weeks old when we bought him. Come to think of it, he didn't even have teeth, but he was so hyper when we went to see him. It was my first small breed purchase, so I didn't know the difference. I still have not received his AKC papers and it's been a year now. I now know that it is REALLY important to do your homework on companies and to make a formal complaint to authorities so they don't continue to profit from the suffering of others.

When Dixie pups was located in Hallandale beach blv, I remember I was going to buy a Tiny Yorkie from her, Luckly my mother did not want to pay, half, I was crushed then, but BOY AM I GLAD I did not!!! I remember her being blond fat and disgusting, I am sorry for all thoes puppies that had to suffer because she was selfish, and did not stop the problem from the begining, I hope you sit in Jail for a long time, and think about all thoes poor puppies that has to die.

WE BOUGHT AQ MALE PUPPY FROM HER. 8 WEEKS OLD. WE TOOK IT TO THE VET THE SAME DAY AND HE THOUGHT HIS EYES LOOKED A LITTLE RUNNY, SO HE GAVE HIM AN ANITBIOTIC JUST TO BE SAFE. SINCE THEN HE APPEARS TO BE VERY ENERGETIC AND HEALTHY. ALTHOUGHT WE HAVE BEEN ABCK TO THE VET FOR AN ESR INFECTION AND A LITTLE COUGH. BUT THE VET DOESN'T SEE ANYTHIG REALLY BAD. SO WE WILL KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED. WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED PAPERS FROM THE AKC AS WE WERE PRIOMISED WE WOUL INA ABOUT 3 TO 4 WEEKS AFTER THE PURCHASE. I SPOKE WITH HERE TODAY AND SHE SAYS THEY SHOULD COME ANYDAY NOW AND IF NOT SHE WILL REGISTER THE PUP. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. BUT AT LEAST NOW, HE IS AS CUTE AS A BUTTON AND SEEMS TO BE VERY HEALTHY. OH YES, WE WERE TOLD SHE GAURANTEED HE WOULD BE NO MORE THAN 3.5 LBS. HE WAS BORN ON DEC. 26TH OF 2006 AND HE NOW WEIGHS 3.3 LBS. SO I GUESS THE TEACUP THEORY IS KIND OF A HOAX.

My boyfriend for x-mas bought me a puppy from them in 2005 and my paperwork was also all wrong too. The dates didn't match with the dates she gave me, he was born in Oct and she told me it was Sept. My tea cup grew to 7 pounds...which is obviously not a TEA CUP. I wanted to take him back and get a refund but by then I was already in love him and couldn't give him away.

I purchased my "teacup" yorkie almost 2 years ago from julie. he was "home raised" and I purchased him out of a condo on the pretense that he was bred and raised there by her and her family. He seemed weak, I called her and was told that he was still "adjusting" and that I could go down to her "brothers" pet store...DIXIE PUPS and purchase some nutracal to perk him up. I'm dumb enough to buy a dog from this wench but not dumb enough to let her tell me it did not need medical attention.$1600 later and with a battery of tests my vet finally concluded that coccidia, hookworms, and parvovirus had caused my new pup to be so lethargic, and he also cautioned that the dog was near death. I did everything possible to save that puppy that I loved so dearly after such a short period of time. I felt horrible for the pup not knowing where it had actually came from or how long it had been ill. It took 2 solid weeks of antibiotics, dewormers, intravenous fluids and electrolite therapy before my dog was stable enough to come home, still he had to go back every 4 days and I had to give him oral medications at home. It cost me well over $4000 to bring life back into the sickly pup Julie sold me, and 2 years later I am STILL DEALING WITH HEALTH ISSUES. He has HORRIBLE skin problems, HORRIBLE allergies, requires all homecooked bland foods, he has luxating patellas..not sure if I spelled that right, that the vet warned may require surgery as he ages, and just last month I had all his baby teeth pulled. Yup 2 years old with two rows of teeth due to bad "breeding" they never fell out. Of course, Mz. Soutello was of no assistance and refused to refund me any of the vet bills/purchase price. She did offer me another sick puppy for "trade" saying she could "fix" mine herself. The real cincher was getting his papers in the male...that he was a 5 week old maltese from argentina. I called and spoke with a man who said he had already addressed my complaint and new papers were on the way....2 years later they still havent found there way to me. I believe in Karma. These two people better duck and cover their heads. They have got something else coming to them.
