Lucky Californians. After running from Massachusetts to New Hampshire, and then fleeing under cover of darkness from there to South Carolina, and bouncing from one location in that state to a different rental property, con artist and piss-poor animal husbandry specialist Augusto DeOliveira has now scuttled out of South Carolina for the Los Angeles, California area.
No specifics yet as to the actual location he's crawled into, and there's reason to suspect he's found himself a 'daddy' who is paying all his bills, but before he left South Carolina, he'd claimed to have purchased several Beaucerons, and had also been known to peddle Miniature Australian Shepherds and Goldendoodles in addition to the German Shepherd Dogs he's been breeding for the last 7 or 8 years. He also started breeding "Russian" Maine Coon cats recently. Over the years, he's had several kennel names and promotes himself as a 'master trainer' even though he's never had any legitimate training instruction in his life.
Beware, Western US dog owners and breeders, as he's gearing up to start a new training venture out there. He allegedly sold off the majority of the dogs he had in SC, though he has also aligned himself with a pet-quality Pembroke Corgi breeder in Georgia now, who he identifies as his "assistant" and who purchased several GSDs from him last year to begin breeding those in addition to the Corgis, so she may well have the majority of his dogs at her kennel.
It is possible that he left all the adult dogs with 'partners' on the East Coast, save for one of the dogs he claims is his 'service dog'--he's been shilling puppies from other GSD breeders on his Facebook page for several years now, and it's unlikely he sold off 20 plus adult dogs over the course of a few days as he claim, so those dogs may be in the hands of those 'partners' at the moment.
If he approaches anyone about buying breeding animals from you, run the other way--an ethical breeder will not want to subject any dog of theirs to the neglect they will experience in this grifter's hands. For a complete history of this fraud's bad actions and scamming puppy and dog buyers, see the Facebook page The Truth About GSK/Ultimate German Shepherds for documents, videos, and additional information.
South Carolina's probably gonna throw a parade, but California and the States in the Western USA...be wary. He's among you now.
