Why weigh yourself down and experience the same possible issues with this replacement? It's obviously easier for her to give you a replacement out of an inbred accidental litter than from a litter that she had to pay stud fees for or for a planned litter that she would have an easier time selling to new customers. If I was dealing with a breeder like this, I would walk away. Sometimes it's just better to cut your losses and use it as a learning experience.

If you are intending to use the puppy to start your own breeding stock, you need to go with your good judgment and do exactly that--walk away. If you still feel comfortable working with this breeder, then you should wait until another acceptable litter is ready...whenever that may be. Personally, I would just walk away, and I definitely wouldn't recommend this breeder to potential customers down the road.

You may spend more dealing with an inbred pups issues than what you'll lose if you walk away. I sure wouldn't want the heartbreak or disappointment. And certainly wouldn't think of breeding from this genetic match.

No I won't be recommending her to anyone else. I liked her in the very beginning and do like my dog from her, but this whole situation has just gotten me so frustrated. I just feel like any replacement puppy I end up with from her wouldn't be one I would have picked on my own.

Definite learning experience. I might as well just wait and see what next year's litter will be and then go from there.
