|If you expected to get reimbursed for holding the puppy the extra time those charges should have been completely outlined in your contract. Without there being an original "charge" for that extra time it is not proper, IMO, to deduct that amount now, after the fact.
IF those charges WERE outlined in writing and there was an actual additional charge above and beyond the price of the puppy, then they could be deducted from the refund as they would have been for a service provided, but after the fact it wouldn't feel right to me at all, in fact it would make me think that as a breeder you are only about the money and not the puppy and new puppy home and owners.
Remember, if you hope to be a reputable breeder your reputation starts with this first litter, and trust me, stuff like this gets passed around to more potential buyers than you can ever imagine.
