Sounds like you got the shaft. Contact the CKC and report her. Do you have a bill of sale?
I still haven't heard back, but Bauer is tattooed, on his inner 'thigh.' I suppose I could call it. I will try to call the CKC Mon or Tues and ask about it. The pups were older, about 12 weeks when my mom & I got them and they had registered names as far as I know, I recall asking the breeder if we needed to come up with those names and she said she'd taken care of it. When does that paperwork get filled out? Is it possible that the dogs were registered before we purchased them, and because of that our owner information was not entered? Maybe the breeder has just been lazy about forwarding that information?Is your dog microchipped? Or tattooed?
Maybe she just isn't very good about getting the paperwork done, then. If you can't get any response from her, maybe you could call the CKC and give them Bauer's tattoo number to confirm that the puppies were individually registered. It's possible that she did register them individually before she sold them, especially if they're supposed to have their registered names. But if you didn't sign anything like a contract, I'm not sure if she could have officially transferred ownership with the CKC. I suppose the CKC might tell you who the registered owner is (assuming that's not against some privacy protection policy).She has been breeding for over 40 years, she is well known and respected... I just can't see why she would just now start screwing people over, let alone my parents who have purchased 2 dogs from her.
