To which I would respond, yes; if a breeder would not take puppies back under any circumstance, they are simply a BYB and should not be breeding dogs.

RubyTuesday IF you have a lawyer on retainer all the time s/he would probably handle it with little to no additional expense. For most of us, lawyer's fees & expenses will quickly chew through most or all that might be won on a dog which cost $1500-$2000.

Getting a bad check covered can be as problematic as enforcing a contract, especially across state lines. Most breeders specify the check must clear before the pup can be picked up.

I agree that all of this should be kept in mind prior to buying a pup. That's essentially what I'm advising when I suggest people do business with breeders they consider trustworthy & ethical.

Good luck finding a lawyer willing to fight for it. You'll probably pay up front and do well to brake even in the fees.

People put too much reliance in the written word. In the case of buying a dog the contract is usually only as good as the people involved. Enforcing it is time consuming, expensive & a HUGE pain on many fronts. The sheer distances that are often involved discourage buyers & breeders battling it out in court. Many times different states are involved, sometimes different countries.

I would buy a dog from someone I trusted without a contract. I would never do a contract with someone I didn't trust regardless of how 'good' the terms appeared to be. Not that contracts are worthless. They can give both parties a clear idea of each parties rights & responsibilities. They can indicate what recourse is available if problems arise. They *might* give some indication of how much confidence the breeder has in the pups produced.

It's important that people approach contracts with their eyes wide open & not blindly trusting the nebulous protection of a legally binding document. Having a contract is one thing. Enforcing that contract is entirely something else.
