|Would have driven over from Atlanta, Georgia this weekend if I had seen the original ad and could contact the owner. I second VomMarischal's question, "are breeders NOT taking their dogs back anymore?"|

| The dog was Katana vom Mystical Haus- Hessel daughter out of nothing I remember recoginizing on the dam's side. |
Very sad that any dog is on CL, especially a working dog, as their temperaments are even harder to find good homes for sometimes.

|Breeders in our area are definately NOT taking their pups back. We are in Central PA and have had several pure bred GSD dogs with AKC paperwork turned into our local shelter. When breeders are contacted they always say how horrible then proceed to say they just had a litter of pups or are full etc. Really makes you sick. |

|Then I guess I'm even dumber than I thought. Not only do I take them back, I actually buy them back.|

|No jenni you are a good breeder, wish ones in our area did that!! I think if you put the dog on this earth you should be there for the rest of that pups life. |
Good for you!

|there's a couple people who frequent this board who know the owner and can contact them, including the breeder.|

|"The Breeder" here, checking in.|
I spoke with the owner the last time she had her listed on CL. She said she changed her mind and took her back down. She said she was going to keep her.
Of course she did not contact me to say she was going to place Two Face up for sale again. I see she also has her listed here on the PDB as well.
I am a breeder that takes my puppies back. It is in my contract that I get first right of refusal. The Seller did not let me know she was placing Two Face or I would have tried to get her back!
I am contacting her seller tonight to express my concern and see what I can do.

|I hope you can get her back, I remember last time the owner stated she would trade for a blk/red female of wg showlines, guess she changed her mind on owning a sable workingline.|

| And again, why I am Queen Psycho when it comes to thoroughly investigating buyers. I would be soooo pissed if I were you, Jennifer. Is it a money thing? Is that maybe why she didn't tell you? That's what I was afraid of happening which is why I buy mine back instead of just accepting them back. I was hoping that would ensure that they do tell me first...because we all know, people don't always keep their word. |
Good luck getting her back!

|Best of luck in getting your dog back :)|
Based on my experience, when someone doesn't contact the breeder about taking the dog back, it's generally a money thing.
by Jenni78 on 19 March 2011 - 17:20
|Yep. Or an embarrassment thing. Either way, I've found (thankfully only one time) that knowing that they will get their full purchase price back ensures that I at least know if the dog is up for sale.|

|I don't want people to think I post these here as spite or to cause drama. I understand alot of times these owners never contact the breeder back. I can not count the #'s of dogs I have found on CL that were shipped in from Europe, Alaska, Georgia ect. these are not local dogs being placed. If I can put these ads out in a more viewable board, and maybe, just maybe the breeder will see them and take the dogs back, or at least a more appropriate home can be found. CL is NOT the best place to find homes for these dogs.|

I am the one that owned Katana. I must say that the first time I decided to find a home for Katana I asked Jennifer first if she wanted her back, and still have the emails. She said no and I asked if she would let me know if she knew of anyone that would have been interested in her. And then I didnt hear from her again, so no I didnt ask her if she wanted her the second time. Katana is now living with the person here in OK that owned Hessell and will begin her training soon. It was quite a shock to get on here and see this, I screened everyone that called about and her and I only considered people woth experience in working line shepherds. Many schutzhund people and k9 officers inquired. So I just wanted to clear that up that Katana was well taken care of and the breeder was asked if she wanted her back the first time, but no, I didnt ask the second time.

|yea someone contacted me interested in a shepherd telling me about how she just had to get rid of her working line female as she was too much and she wants to get a working line male from me o.o|

|Whatever happened to Hessel? Anyone know his whereabouts?|
by destiny4u on 30 March 2011 - 18:23
|jenni you are awsome for doing that wow never heard of a breeder doing that!|
just shows you care enough about your dogs that you would rather re home them yourself then have your customer sell them to god knows who.
by Jenni78 on 30 March 2011 - 19:51
|And I'm selfish! I'm keepin' her! LOL Never really wanted to sell her in the first place...circumstances. ;-)|
Yeah, what about Hessel?
