eww I missed the part that you never signed a contract...I think I might bring up the fact to the breeder that you never 'signed' a contract because you weren't asked to.

So in reality, there is no written contract

You could also say, ok give me the puppy back and you sell it..?

I'm a breeder, and I give two weeks, 100% money back refund for any reason or no reason. After two weeks, I do not refund cash.

The breeder should do what is right. If the breeder paid for shipment, then I would refund that. But beyond that, the breeder should give you your money back.

Good Lord. You had the puppy a few days and they didn't OFFER IMMEDIATELY to refund you if you brought the pup back?

As a breeder, I'd be thrilled you didn't dump him on craigslist and would give your money back in a heartbeat, or at the very least when I resold the pup.

Might be a good idea to give you a refund. Goodwill is important.

Wow. This is disappointing to hear. There's always two sides. Wonder how they justify keeping the money after the puppy was returned a few days later?

If said breeder is reading this thread I hope you reconsider.

Most respectable breeders would issue refund but in same instance if you didnt explain about the unforseen circumstances of your son's unknown allergy then they may feel pup was returned without good reason if was me would pursue it but would also explain why pup had to be returned and wasn't fault of pup or you because u didn't sign contract therefore contract isn't legally binding but good luck and yes pursue don't give in too easily otherwise they have had money for this pup twice over once when you bought pup and again when resold

You did not sign a contract - most breeders have pretty similar terms...you have x number of days to return a puppy....

IMO, as this was unforeseen, you should get at least 75% refund, if not 100%.....you could have just resold the pup and recouped your money...but did the morally/ethically correct thing by returning the puppy....I would much rather get a pup back in this situation than have the buyer place the puppy who knows where.

If I were you, I'd ask the breeder what their intentions are with the puppy. If it is to sell it, then I'd ask for 75% of the proceeds of that sale (or whatever % you are comfortable with). If the breeder says no, I'd ask for the puppy back and sell it yourself.

If the breeder is well thought of, as you indicated earlier, I bet you can sell the puppy quickly with the help of folks on this board.

In the mean time, keep the pup crated in one room of your house and contain the allergens there. Start regular training and do what you can to move that pup forward until you are able to sell it.

My contracts stated that within 1 week I would take the puppy back for whatever reason(as long as puppy was not injured while in new persons care and they didn't want to pay vet bills, etc) and issue a full refund.
If it was after that time, then I would take puppy back and as soon as puppy was sold, the original buyer received their money back then or however much I got for puppy's second home.
