Refund?

Recommended Posts

I bought a well bred gsp bitch pup at 8 weeks old from reliable lines and gave her a good overhaul before handing over the £750. I checked her mouth and her bite was perfect, however 6 weeks on I have noticed she now has an undershot jaw! Only slightly but still undershot. I was just wanting some opinions on what I should do. Is it a risk you take when purchasing a pup or should I ask for a refund because at the end of the day I've paid fill whack for something that I can't even take a litter out of if she makes the grade. I don't breed dogs for money but I don't buy pups very often as i take a litter as and when I need a replacement to my team. Any suggestions?

I wouldn't worry yet. There is so much going on in a pups mouth at that age with loosing milk teeth, fitting adult teeth into jaws that haven't yet developed properly and the mouth itself not yet finished growing that I would say that the lower jaw will probably lengthen and fit back in properly. I had similar worries with my GSD pup but at around 8 months old they just straightened themselves out and all is fine.

I would think the chance of a refund would be less than zero. YOU "gave her a good overall" so it was you that picked the pup. Living,breathing animals are not manufactured.

What are feeding her mate? Vitamin B for bone development.

 

PS: that's madness paying that money, not a dig at you but the breeder. :thumbs:

 

If she was fine health and structure wise when leaving the breeder than I doubt they will entertain you.

 

Get a pic up :thumbs:

A small undershot jaw is not going to hinder the dog in any way sounds more hassle that it's worth asking for money back.

I'm feeding her burns puppy chicken and rice and at £41 a bag I hope it's got everything she needs including vitamin b!

I'm not really saying it is going to hinder her working ability but I would like to think that paying what I did for her I would be able to take 1 litter from her if she made the grade to replace my retired dogs. Obviously I can't now because I wouldnt dream of taking a litter out of a dog with any deformities.

Your more interested in worrying about pups than if the dog becomes a decent worker. That's wrong. You were looking for opinions and you got mine.

It's got 'maybe' an undershot jaw....what does that matter??

First and foremost its a working dog that's going to give you 'maybe' up to 12 years of happy memories. The first thing on your mind should not be 'shit I can't have pups!!'
