Default Can't believe my luck

I was suppose to be bringing my new female puppy home tomorrow from colorado and I got a call from the breeder this morning and he told me that his shipper had sent my female to another family that wanted a male! I have already paid for this pup and the family wont send the dog back bc their kids have already grown attached. So I dont have the heart to throw a fit and take the puppy away from the kids but dang my bad luck. The breeder I was doing business with has a great reputation and he said in his 14 years of business this has never happened. Of course this 1 time would be my puppy.

That's kind of ridiculous for the other family to do. You tell your children the truth and their boy puppy will be there in a couple days. I'm sorry you're nicer than I am!

Thats unacceptable. You paid your money for the female. The other family needs to fess up and do the right thing. The shipper would also be in MASSIVE trouble.

Is this breeder going to take care of you?

the shipper sent it to the wrong family??? the shipper does not (normally) pick the puppy up out of it's kennel - someone else does and takes it to the shipper....I think someone did not turn teh puppy upside down and check before they turned it over to the shipper!

Does he have other pups that are comparable?

I think the breeder owes you a free puppy.. I'd be so mad!

I don't believe it. You don't "accidentally" ship a puppy to the wrong address.

This is a lame excuse for giving your puppy to somebody else who wanted it more. Probably a friend of the breeder.

I would be so angry! I wouldn't care if "their kids were already attached" I would be demanding the puppy that I had paid for be shipped to me, and have the dog that was suppose to go to this family sent to them, they are kids and it is a puppy, they will forget about the female and love the male just as much!

You put your deposit down for a certain sex puppy and the breeder didn't deliver. I don't care about excuses, I care about getting the problem fixed ASAP

I seriously hope the breeder fixes the issue and compensates you, that really is ridiculous

That sounds kind of fishy, but if it was an honest mistake, that really is rotten luck! I would be heartbroken! I hope the breeder can make it up to you!
