Default Urgent advice needed

The puppy I'm getting is 12 weeks and the woman said she was thinking about keeping the puppy but decided against it. She was really nice while I was asking her about the puppy. As soon as I'd sent the deposit she became very short with me and then she ended up having some argument with a woman on the group. She seemed to be in the right so I ignored the bad feeling that was growing. I said that I was in work till 10 so I'd discuss when I wanted to get the puppy from her with my OH and then get back to her in the morning. She said that she needed to know right now because its short notice and if not she could give the puppy to a woman from London who was 'begging' for her and refund my deposit. I thought about it and decided that u liked the puppy enough to go with it. The woman, I say woman but she's 21 and acts younger. She's rather arrogant and self obsessed but she does seen to love her dogs, especially this one that she posts pics of every day and calls her baby. So we agreed that she would reduce the price and get her first vaccination done before sat included in the price. She sends me a message tonight saying that she phoned the vets and they wouldn't do just one vaccine. I said that was a shame because I wanted her to have it done there so she wasn't having the stress of moving and then getting shots and that it's odd because mine does just one and its common practice for a breeder to get first injection. She said that it was because it was a veterinary hospital and the others settled in fine. She led me to believe that this was the only puppy that didn't have vaccines because if her size. I said it was fine and asked if we could reduce the price accordingly. She said no, she's reduced enough and if I want my money back that's fine.

I don't know if she's not very nice when dealing with people, whether she doesn't want to let the dog go now or if she wants to sell to this other woman for full price. I like the dog and one cuter hasn't come up but I don't have an 'I have to have her' feeling. My bad feeling keeps getting worse. I was half expecting her to turn up without any vaccine card and I believe that she never intended to get it. Should I ask for my deposit back?

Sorry for the ramble and any typos... I'm typing this quickly on my phone at work because I want to get a decision to her ASAP. Thanks.

That sounds ridiculous and like she's trying to put her puppy an any home just to get rid of her. She is rubbing me the wrong way. You gave her the deposit so technically the pup is yours and she should be willing to work on a pickup day/time and not be so rude, especially bc she's going to a good and chihuahua experienced home. Not sure what to do either but I don't like the way she is coming off at all. I could see her acting like this if there wasn't a deposit put down already. Hmmmm this is tough!! But if u don't feel like she's the one, then pass.

this is a tricky one i suppose it depends if you have fell in love with the puppy? This lady sounds very pushy with you and seems to have lied. Iam not sure what i would do.

And I forgot to mention that I would have rather picked Leo up without having any vaccinations bc I like to do single and bi-valent vaccines as opposed to the 5 in 1 or 7 in 1 anyway so I think that's a plus. This way you can also make sure they are spaced out appropriately and she's not over vaccinated either. Just my personal preference tho.

My rule of thumb is if my gut has a bad feeling then I know there is something wrong. I would listen to your gut. You want a breeder who if you have a question after you get the puppy they are there to help you. This girl does not sound like she would be very helpful.

The perfect puppy will come along but you want to make sure you have the perfect breeder as well.

I would not get a puppy unless they have been given their first shots. If they haven't had their first shots has the puppy had a exam by a vet?

If it were me I would definitely ask for my deposit back.

I'm not sure. It's so confusing. I think the feelings about the woman is tainting the feeling about the puppy. She didn't bother asking me any questions other than whether I was planning to breed her.

It doesn't sound like she's going to be giving you any lifetime support or anything either, not sure if that's important to u or not tho? Is she really expensive? Is she close to u? I know u haven't had maybe breeders close by u. If the breeder was not giving u bad vibes, would u feel this puppy is the one??

That was another reason I wanted her to have her shots because they get examined at the same time. I'm not sure if its a plus or not Zorana because the shots work differently in this country. We have 2 lots only, 2 weeks apart. None for kernel cough or rabies unless necessary.
