Lol switch a roo! I'm gonna be calling you up when I need ideas to pull sneaky business on my kids one day.

Why not just tell the kids the truth? We got the wrong puppy so we are going to take extra special care of this puppy and return her to her owner because her owner is missing her. Our puppy is on the way. It's not hard to get kids involved in doing the right thing, and to get them excited about it.

Good luck with your situation, hope it works out to where you're satisfied.
Thank you, the breeder offered me pups that are worth a lot more and come from a better gene pool so I might take him up on that. Good luck to you as we'll

That's a good point and I thought the same thing until he started offering pups that were priced triple. He would be taking a huge hit if I take him up on that so I don't think it's the case but you never know about people now a days....

Sounds like it was an honest mistake and he's trying to make good on it.

I would never had been as calm as you are/were. I would have thrown a fit. Went balistic and then some. It's your puppy.....

Like others said. Something doesn't sound right. If I wanted a male then got sent a female. I am sending it back and getting what I wanted. Kids or no kids. It would take a second for them to get attached to the male pup they actually wanted.....

Kaos 8/6/2003-5/18/2013 Things not what they used to be. Missing one inside of me. Deathly lost this Cant be real. Cannot stand this H*ll I feel. Emptiness is filling me. To the point of agony..RIP Your paw prints burned forever into my broken heart.

Of course, they might have wanted a female, but there were only males available, so they had to settle for a male, but when a female showed up...BONUS!

Yes I'm with you that honesty is best but some parents have a hard time telling their kids the truth. So I say whatever works lol I always tell my kids the truth and try not to sugar coat it b/c in life things happen and you need to know how to roll with the punches and deal.

Could very well be. Something doesn't sound right about this to me....
