Breeder Now Has Deposit & Now No Communication
We had to put our 11 1/2 yr. old GSD down last month. We went back to the breeder where he came from and are dealing with a daughter that took over after her mom passed away. I was told on Aug. 1st that a litter of pups were due to be born Aug. 11th. I sent a deposit and filled out the application. I asked to please let me know when it was received. Did not hear so I checked and saw the $400 deposit was cashed on Aug. 5th. Several of my e-mails went unanswered and the phone was either busy or rang repeatedly without a machine to leave a message throughout August. Earlier this week I finally get an e-mail just telling me they were busy and the dog had no puppies. Asked me to call their cell phone the next day. I did and left a message. Waited 2 days and again left another message on her cell phone. I don't know how to handle this. I am beginning to wonder was I just lead to believe there were puppies when there weren't and where do I go from here? Obviously no communication and I don't like doing business like this. Any ideas?
