ApselBear My best memories of our different dogs we've had over the years come from the only dog that was ever dumped on us. He looked full blood Australian Shepherd, but we never knew since he was a dump/lost dog. He turned out to be one of the most fun, loyal dogs we've had. He actually made friends with our cat at the time, before we even found him. His name was Air Jordan, because he would get so excited when my dad would go feed our chickens that he'd jump clear over my dad's(he's right at 6foot) head. Not jumping at anything in particular, he was doing his best to rewrite the lyrics to "If You're Happy and You Know It".

Breed certainly isn't everything when it comes to a having a wonderful pet. Love them and they'll love you.
That being said, this breeder you've dealt with should be ashamed of how he handled this situation. He's got some bad karma coming his way.

Stevenzachsmom I'm so glad you are keeping him. He is beautiful! I currently have a shelter mix. He is smart as a whip and I wouldn't trade him for all the purebreds in the world. Hang around and keep giving us updates. We love watching them grow.

GOOD FOR YOU! He's a beautiful dog and still may be purebred. Hard to tell during the first year.

No matter what he's worth your love. And NEXT time, if it's important for you to have a purebred then you'll know better to do the legwork early to research for the responsible breeder that fits your needs. --->

Chalk it up to a lesson learned. If you find that you really do not want a puppy that may not be purebred, find a rescue for him so that he can have a home that loves him regardless to who his sire was.

You cannot prove that the puppy is not purebred. You do not have a contract. You really do not have any recourse when it comes to trying to get the breeder to refund your money. You are basically out of luck.

Even $600 means that such a breeder is making money hand over fist. Where a good breeder loses money when they charge 3 times that figure. A good breeder will give you a contract with a warranty, they test their dogs for genetic health problems. They train their dogs and test their temperaments. They pay attention to structure and do not breed disqualifying faults. They know the pedigree and pay attention to it when it comes to their breeding decisions. And they purchase dogs or raise dogs that they have breeding rights to, among other things.

Because they put a lot into their dogs and puppies, usually most of the proceeds go right back into the dogs' vet care, food, training, shows, and so forth. They also care about their puppies and would refund your money because they would not want their puppy to be with someone who may not want him.

The breeder who is throwing dogs together willy nilly, without papers, probably bought an extra bag of Ole Roy and put a box in the garage. That's what went into his breeding of this puppy. That's why he is making money. And that's why we do not like to support breeders who do not offer papers, and sell dogs for $600.
Well put
