How About Sad Tawney update has a happy ending
I posted a couple of weeks ago about getting a new girl, Tawney, a 10 month old. Tawney arrived Friday night and she is really, sweet little girl who gets along very well with my other Hav.
I took her in for her vet check up on Saturday and the vet found that she had a 2.5 luxating patella that at some point would probably require surgery. The surger runs around $2,000 to $2,500. Later that night, when she was doing RLH I noticed her hopping and favoring her back left leg.
Obviously, this is a very upsetting development. I contacted her breeder and she gave me a very difficult time and insisted that Tawney must have hurt herself at my house, which is absolutely ridiculous. This is a genetic condition. She also said this was not a serious health condition that would warrant return of the dog.
Her breeder did finally agree to take her back, but I will have to pay shipping costs. She will not refund her purchase price until she is able to sell her to someone else.
Sigh, I guess I will keep looking for another dog.
