|If you're doing your job right as a breeder, you're not going to make money anyway, so the extra cost for this returned puppy is just noise. Really. The main consideration is the safety of the puppy, and, to a lesser extent, your reputation as a breeder who cares more about the well-being of the pups and a good fit with the family than with profit.
When Addy was returned to her breeder by her original buyer at a year old, after she had been in that home for nine months, for a reason that was, at best, factually debatable, her breeder refunded her purchase price plus the former owner's cost of shipping her back. In fact, she was "sold" to me for the amount necessary to reimburse the shipping costs, so stop and think a minute about the total $ lost on a dog who was originally sold as a show quality puppy.
Don't sweat the small stuff; refund the money and be glad the pup is safe rather than dumped in a shelter.
