So Angry , They got too busy !
We just got a puppy back. When this puppy went to his 'forever' home he was 12 weeks old a sweet smelling ball of fur. What we got back was a matted, flea infested, worm ridden puppy ! I am so upset. We screen people and have a very nosey adoption application. People are given a detailed booklet about puppy care, and training.
When I ask why they were returning the puppy, they said, " Oh it was too hard, we don't have time to do all that stuff." I raised my eyebrow and inclined my head, so they would explain, "you know, the brushing it, cleaning up pee, walking it and stuff. We are just too busy and we want a refund."
I am so angry. He is going home with me. Now we have to find another home for this little guy after, the Vet, and groomer. It will take some TLC.
Sorry just had to vent !

Omgosh how ignorant!!! What did they think a puppy required? I don't blame you for being angry. I am glad they returned him so he can be in a home with the love and attention that he deserves.

That is really sad- Look at it this way they did the right thing and brought him back to you-
I don't understand people these days... I look at Peanut every day and wonder how can someone WANT to hurt these precious little angels- Granted Peanut has his bad days where I want to strangle the lil terd, but then Daddy will tell Peanut to go apologize to Mommy, and that is what he does. He will come sit and me give me the Yorkie Look and start kissing me and all is forgiven!
I'm sure once you nurse this lil guy back he wont remember what those awful people did!

I hope you don't give them a refund! If they give you a hard time about the refund I would threaten to report them for animal cruelty...they can go to jail for that.

If you are considering a refund, can you deduct grooming, vet visit and meds? That just stinks!

Poor baby! Hope he recovers from that trauma quickly. He must have been neglected. Some people just see a doll and not living & breathing life! It's frustrating.
BTW, I'm looking for a companion for my Lucy. Would you consider a re-home in NJ? Lucy just spent 4 days with her breeder while we travelled to Chicago (for business - no pups allowed.) He said he thought we were one of the best most loving families he's seen.
Well, enough patting myself on my own back...

It is awful they are too busy to give basic care but the best thing that you got him back before they could neglect him further

I FEEL YOUR ANGER AND PAIN!!!! We sit and spend hours, interviewing, assessing, questioning, giving information, telephone conversations....and everyonce in a while, "one" slips by us.....happens to all of us, fortunately, I havent had that yet....I have one steal the puppy, driving a brand new BMW, 3 piece suit, cool sunglasses, the whole outfit, and then paid me with a worthless stolen/forged money order.......had one buy a puppy, went to the vet, who told him the puppy was a silky (this was NOT a large baby, had a silky coat, has a pedigree to die for) and this idiot calls me and tells me I LIED AND THE DOG I SOLD HIM IS A SILKY! He was shown the registration papers on both parents, and the litter registration papers...(I send the registration papers when they spay neuter the dog) plus I show them the 3 generation pedigree from AKC....so when he sent me the receipt from his vet that the dog had been spayed, the vet had filled in "Breed: SILKY"....I contacted my lawyer and she told me he did niot provide me a receipt that the dog I HAD SOLD HIM had been spayed....inform him to send a spay receipt for the dog I sold him, a Yorkie, and then send him the registration papers as per my contract. AKC agreed...... So I know how you feel...all the effort you put into educating these people, and the information went in one ear and out the other one. How long did they have the puppy? By the time you deduct the vet bills and grooming bills, (as well as the isolation fee at a boarding facility it costs you to isolate that baby for at least 2 weeks before you "contaminate" your other dogs), required to get that puppy back into the condition it was in when they got it from you, THEY will not only NOT get a refund, they will OWE YOU more money.

Poor little guy...that is just rediculous. He's going to need a lot o TLC !!
Im curious if you gave them a full refund?
What do you do in this type of situation?
If it were me.... I would not have. They would get half now and the remaining refunded of what was left over after...this little guy has been to the Vet for a full work over, gotten de wormed, up to date shots and only after he has been re homed to a more suitable family.
Not sure what is the legal and proper thing to do when something like this happens!
