Good luck! I have had a real rough time from someone very well known when my bitch not only did not have pups, but got some sort of infection and the vets spayed her....it was NOT pyometra. Did not have a suitable female to go with the male's pedigree..
At this point, most people are so happy to get a nice female for their male, they are willing to work out details so that payment is due when you get a litter....
IMO, you should be refunded teh fee....but ??? too many people are just a touch greedy and won't give up money once it is in their pocket....look at the whole deposit culture!
