I know she does all the testing on her dogs (I've checked on the registry), and I can tell you that our 3-year old Sparky is the most amazing dog I've ever owned - wonderful behavior and health. That's why we came back to her again. Zoey (the new puppy) seems to be wonderful as well and got a clean bill of health from our veterinarian (Dr. Joanne Baldwin - she is a Havanese breeder as well). She was amazed as well that the breeder nor her vet could see that this is a male, unless of course she just mixed the papers up? I'm not a vet nor a breeder (just a mother of three!), but even I noticed that her "bump" seemed to be a lot lower than our Sparky's. I was suspicious even before visiting Dr. Baldwin on Saturday.
She never actually apologized for the mixup, and she indicated that maybe she should switch veterinarians. Something doesn't sound right though - I can't think that a veterinarian anywhere wouldn't know if a pup was missing testicles. She just kept reiterating, "oh my God, are you kidding? That's only the second time in 10 years that has happened to me." She never said sorry, but just that she would switch the pup and pay for all the shipping.
Again - the puppy is adorable (I'll try to post her pic if I can figure it out) and healthy. She's only been getting me up once each night - yeah! I just want my son to be happy with having a female. Our vet has 5 females and one male - she said her females are plenty affectionate - just a more independent. But she said the males can be almost needy as well. She said the puppy looks great, and to keep in mind that even if we switch we may not like the other puppy as well.
Thank you all for listening - I really appreciate it.
