Another fun, adorable visit with Thelma Lou. Pics to come, BUT.....

When we got there the breeder wanted to talk with me. The puppies went to the vet yesterday and they found out that Thelma Lou has split canines. Both of her lower canines are split from about halfway down up to the top. I've never noticed it, but its definitely obvious when you look closely. What does that mean? The breeder and apparently the vet were unsure. She is the only one in the litter with the problem. It could mean that those baby teeth just formed weird, or it could mean that when her adult canines grow in there will be two on each side and she will have to have them extracted.
Here are my options: get our deposit back and find another puppy (very nice of them to offer, I thought), take one of the two puppies left (both male), or get approx a 15% discount on Thelma Lou.
I suppose we will call some vets and see what the range of costs is for tooth extraction. Obviously we don't plan on showing her or breeding her-she's just a family pet, so it's not a cosmetic thing. Ugh. Maybe I will ask on the main forum.

Oh, she's 6 1/2 pounds now-still the smallest-and the vet remarked that she has "spirit," which is a nice way of saying "watch out!"

awww she is so tiny and sweet. I don't know any of this about the teeth. Will it disrupt her at all while she eats as a puppy? I would find out how much the removal costs and if it is something that is necessary and ask if you can deduct that amount from her cost. I mean it is an added expense that is a definite (not unexpected at this point) and if they have to be removed then anyone that takes her is going to have to pay for that on top of the cost of the dog. Even if the breeder keeps her herself. 15% of 1500 dollars is 200 dollars. I wonder how much the tooth removal is? In my case, if it was covered than fine. If it was more than 200 than I'd ask for them to deduct the entire cost of the tooth removal.
