I originally sent an email to Lochlann's breeder on January 2nd explaining to her what is going on with Lochlann and stating that I wanted to give her the first "right of refusal" (as some breeders call it).
I know it's only been 4 days, but I figure that 4 days is plenty of time to even just send off a quick, "I'm busy now, I can get back to you later", if she's checking her emails. I'm a little disheartened that she hasn't emailed back at all.
So I just called her. No answer.
I left a quick message, explaining who I am and that I'm calling in regards to one of her dogs, that he needs a new home and left my phone number.
I want to give her the opportunity she deserves to take him back, but I really just want Lochlann to start his journey on finding his forever home as soon as possible.
I figure I'll give her 3 more days and go from there....

I would give her those 3 more days so its been a week and then use your plan B. Hopefully now that you called she will touch base with you. Maybe she doesn't check emails that frequently. Good luck!

You have a lot of people on this forum pulling for you and Lochlann, I hope it helps knowing you have so much support for making the effort to do the right thing for this dog. You're doing everything right, give the breeder the benefit of the doubt (as you are) and then if she doesn't step up, let the rescue take over. Bless you for giving Lochlann a chance at the life he deserves.

Thank you for updating this, i'll be checking back.

A week is better many/most hobby breeders have jobs and families in addition to their dogs. And she might have gone out of town for the holidays. Good luck!

I got a call back from the breeder today. Unfortunately, I was at work.
Apparently, she didn't receive my email and asked me to send it again.

I'll try calling her later in the day while I'm on my lunch at work.

Fingers crossed that she'll take him back. She referred to him as "my dog", so I think things are going to go well!

I am relieved by your last post, that she seems to word things like she cares. This is such the right thing you are doing.
