So I bought my min pin from a breeder for 750 a month ago. She is now 12 weeks old. I was really excited about her and my kids adore her. We just moved into a condo and everyrthing is great. Well, now my management compnay is saying the breed is not allowed. How stupid! She weighs no more then like 3 pounds. She's a baby. So, now i need to find her a home...shes too precious to go to a shelter and the breeder wont take her back and refund me. Any one have an idea on what I can do??

Why don't you appeal to the members of the condo board to see if they'll change the rule or make an exception?

Were you given a list of unacceptable breeds at the time you signed your contract, as in, was there a list in the HOA provisions? I would try to fight them on this breed specific ban rather than give in so easily. If you have your own insurance and your insurance company has not rejected your Min Pin I see no reason the management company might have that would be credible. You should have been given a list of the HOA requirements prior to closing on the condo. If the breed ban list was not part of it you should not be made to give up your dog.

Oh, a light bulb just came on! How about you don't buy a dog from a backyard breeder, then do your research before you move to a place where your dog isn't allowed. Oh, wait, you want ideas for what to do now that you've contributed to overpopulation.... First, don't expect a refund. If you had used a reputable breeder, they should take her back. Obviously you went the BYB route. I would start calling breed rescues, and offer to pay her expenses until they can find a suitable home. Then I would suggest not getting another dog.

Agree with breed specific rescue.

Find a breed rescue, and PLEASE consider this a lesson learned. If you just got her a month ago, you must have known that you were moving, correct? Yes, there are times when an animal simply cannot be taken in a move, but to know you're moving, and still get a dog without knowing if it's allowed? PLEASE do your homework a little more, if you decide to get another animal.

Well it's obvious that breeder cares more about the almighty dollar than about the innocent lives she/he is bringing into this world. A shame.

Hopefully a breed rescue will step in. If they do, you should give them a nice big donation.

It sounds like you're not even interested in disputing your apartment complex's claim, which means you knew the dog wasn't allowed and got her anyway.

Contact a breed rescue and DO NOT get another dog unless you're willing to put in the time/effort/money to support a reputable breeder who actually cares about their animals. And most importantly if you consider a pet in the future make sure your pet is allowed where you live. Dogs are living things, they shouldn't be shuffled around, it's very hard on them. Your puppy has already grown attached to you and now has to start all over with someone else. If you care about your puppy move somewhere she is allowed.

And btw ALL ANIMALS in shelters are precious! Don't you know there are thousands of other people in your situation who took their puppy to a shelter? Where do you think all these shelter animals come from! People like you!
