For the third time this year, a Bryan dog breeder is in the Brazos County jail.

The latest arrest of 52 year old John Chavarria charges him with four counts of deceptive business practice and one count of misdemeanor theft.

All five counts are from the sale of puppies from February through December of last year.

According to arrest reports from Bryan police:

One victim reported when she received her puppy, it was covered with fleas and worms, and it was vomiting. She took the puppy to the vet, believing the cost would be covered by a health contract she purchased. But she was not reimbursed. The buyer was also told the animal was A-K-C registered but she has received no paperwork.

A second victim also said she purchased a health contract and has not been reimbursed for taking the puppy four times to veternarians for hip issues. She was also told the animal was A-K-C registered but has received no paperwork.

A third victim said her puppy had internal parasites and ear mites, and was not microchipped as promised.

The owner of the fourth puppy, who said she paid $575 dollars, said the puppy had not been dewormed and was not microchipped as promised.

Chavarria told investigators none of the four victims have accepted his offer to return the sick animals for a healthy one.

The fifth victim told investigators when Chavarria told her the puppy she bought had been run over, she wanted her money back. According to the arrest report, she was reimbursed only $90 dollars after paying $800 for her puppy. Chavarria told detectives he offered to give that buyer another puppy and the buyer refused.

According to online jail records, Chavarria was arrested in February and in March for having more than four animals in his home.

As of Thursday morning, Chavarria remains in jail following his latest arrest. Bonds on the new charges total $18,000 dollars.
