|I think as a breeder, it is foolish to NOT allow the owner to rehome, albeit with YOUR approval of the home, although that is NOT stated as an option in my contract. BUT, in the cases where this has happened with my dogs, the owner HAD the home lined up when they realized they were unable to keep the dog, it wasn't just someone they found but didn't know, it was usually a friend or relative who already KNEW the dog, which, lets face it, I didn't! BUT, does that mean I want to see one of my dogs listed on Craigs list or petfinder?? NO WAY...that is a point where I would use my contract to step in and take the dog back.
When we are going over and signing the contract I DO explain all that to the new puppy buyer... I tell them I am perfectly happy to have them rehome the dog WITH MY APPROVAL as well. But, do we really always know if the dog is rehomed without our approval??? Nope, I don't believe we do so this is when you hope you have worked enough to develop the proper trust between you and the puppy buyer.
