The chances of receiving a refund on a pup?
My fiance got me a miniature dachshund for an early Christmas present, we drove over 6 hours round trip to pick him up, and when we arrived at the "breeder's" (which I won't even get into right now), there were two puppies in a child's play pen, the puppy we were originally going to get was going absolutely crazy, he was so hyper. We have a very docile cat, and live in an apartment, my fiance works full-time and I work part-time and attend school online, so he really didn't seem like he would fit. However the other puppy in the pen was very calm, and seemed like he would be a better fit, and we were agreed with. This dog was a dapple, as the other was a black and tan, and therefore cost more. We paid and then she gave us the papers, which were not in her name, nor the name of the person she said was raising this litter, but we didn't question further. His vaccination papers had blood on them, and where the spaces were filled in, the word vaccination was even spelled incorrectly numerous times, and as we were leaving she was talking about how she had to go vaccinate a puppy someone was supposed to be coming to get, which made me wonder if they were even vaccinated at a vet. This dog was also supposed to be crate-trained, we stopped twice on the way home to make sure he didn't need to relieve himself, and then when we arrived home I waited outside for 15 minutes before I decided he must not have needed to go. The moment he got inside, he ran into his crate and went in his dog bed. This has happened twice. Everytime I even as much as go to the bathroom he is crying and barking very loudly, I can't leave him in his kennel without him going nuts, even if it is right next to me. I have gotten two notes on my door about how disturbing he is and I have only had him for 24 hours. I understand this is what puppies do, and I know it isn't his fault. But we don't have the time, or privacy required for a dog like this right now. I called the "breeder" who said she would have to get in contact with the person who had the dog to see if he would accept a refund, but she suggested I get a shock collar. I told her I would give her the bag of food we have ($20), the kennel ($40), the bowls, toys, leash, halter, and puppy pads (all about $40) we have if she would accept the refund. She told me that it was funny I was calling because the puppy we chose was actually the talkative, demanding one. I feel that this should have been said when we changed our minds and voiced the reasons why. I have to miss work tomorrow in order to stay home with this puppy so I don't get evicted. This is costing me so much money, and he isn't a bad dog, AS LONG AS someone has the time and patience for this type of puppy right now, so she can resell him. I know I wrote a novel here, but I want to make sure I have all my bases covered. Is there any chance we can get a refund?
