Default Happy ending, but deposit issue

Hey everyone,

So my last breeder didn't work out but for the best. I am now talking with two breeders who are very good friends with each other, and who are really really great in all aspects. One is in CA, one is closer to me and wants me to come meet her dogs at some shows and has invited me to come up as much as I want to see the babies when they're born. Very up front, and both of their dogs are stunning.
However, my other breeder hasn't given my deposit back and it's been a month since she told us there wouldn't be a pup for me. She said she'd send it, I contacted her last week and she said she was just very busy with the new babies and she'd send it in the next couple days. Still nothing. Its only $200, but it kind of miffs me. Should I pursue this?

I would definitely call and try to get the money back....

But I also think you have found some great alternative breeders and how exciting is that! REally love that one is so welcoming and inviting you to see their dogs/home. Nice to get your foot in the door once you find the type of dogs/breeders you want to support.

Yeah, I'll try to. Do I have any legal recourse if that doesn't work? She seems to avoid talking on the phone. Her website clearly states that I should get my money back.

I'm so exited about the other breeders! The one in CA might be who I end up going with because they will have the color I wanted. I found her by tracing back through pedigrees of the dogs I liked, and while the original source is not breeding anymore they sang her absolute praises. She and the one near me both have great health guarantees that don't just cover their own butt. Also, neither of them really seem to care if you buy from one or the other, but rather they care more about what's the best option for you and the dog.
They also were fine with me being on both their lists in case one didn't work out. I'm so inpressed with how they work!

Have to wait a little longer, but so worth it! In the long run, 2-6 months ain't that long.

Glad you've found some new avenues to explore.

An FYI about your deposit,,,are you near Hartford CT? On Oct 25 and 26 there is a Pet Expo at the Convention Center (NOT the XL center),,and I do believe the 'breeder' with your deposit is the one that will may be running the Shiloh Shep info table..

If you can go , and if it is her, I'd tell her your attending and expect to pick up your deposit there..NO I would NOT let it go..IT takes 2 minutes to write a check and throw it in the mail..there is no reason for her to slack off about returning it ..

Here's the link http://www.jenksproductions.com/ctpet.html
Look under Vendor Links (shiloh shepherd rescue and click)

That's cool, I really appreciate the link anyway! But yeah, I'm totally going to be there to meet one of my breeders since she's showing some of her dogs at the expo. The other breeder unfortunately doesn't do anything except CGC and health testing, while both of the ones I'm currently on the list for are using breed champions on one or both of the parents sides. Good sign, I guess.
Cross my fingers, i will ask if I can pick up my deposit there if she's going. My husband said that he will literally take me to her house to pick it up if she doesn't stop this procrastination.
