Deposit Question

Am I wrong in wanting my $300 back?
After a long search for a reputable breeder I found one in Fl.. I live in Ca.. After seeing a puppy that was 3 weeks old we put a $300 deposit on it. Two weeks later we saw one of her newborns we liked better and moved our deposit to that one. A week later someone didn't take one that was 8 weeks old....we fell in love. We said we would take her on a Wednesday, flew to Fl. on Friday, picked the puppy up on Saturday and were back in Ca. on Sunday. The breeder would not transfer the deposit to our new puppy because on Wednesday I didn't ask to have the deposit moved to the new puppy, nor would refund it.
She said that if I wanted another puppy she would apply the deposit to a new one.
I am sure her puppies are great but I wonder about her ethics.

Am I off base here?

Wow!!! Why did you not apply the 300 to the purchase price? First off, she should have done that. Under California law you have to return a deposit if you did not get the goods. I do not know about Fl law. Now, I have not consider transactional law as to how you made the deposit. I am so sorry to hear someone did this!!!!! These are the kind of things that burn me up.

That's nuts. In some states, its not even legal not to refund a deposit for any reason. I don't know about the states involved.

She's a doll! Congrats!

Thats outrageous! The breeder should've applied the deposit to whatever puppy you were buying from them. Sounds like greed got the best of them..

Thank you....Our new puppy is also! <G>

We lost our beloved Bailey last April after eleven years. She was a Havanese also.
It was time for another one.

Jack, welcome to the forum. Your little girl is too cute for words. As for her breeder, not so much. I can't believe she would do that. It makes no sense . . . at all.
