I had put a deposit on a female puppy that seemed to be perfectly healthy. A few days later i saw and ad from the same breeder selling a male puppy from the same litter with a cleft lip.This upset me because I was not told this had been an issue in the litter.
I personally never would've placed a deposit if I would've known this one puppy had a cleft lip.
I called the breeder and told her I didn't want the puppy anymore because from what I understand...this can be herediatary and I didn't want to take the chance of passing the gene on by eventually breeding this female, and potentially having major problems and sick, deformed puppies in the future.
I thought I was doing the right thing by not wanting to breed this girl and pass on problems.
The breeder is furious with me and she herself is keeping a puppy back from the litter for breeding. I think that is wrong and that all the puppies should be spayed/neutered.
Anyhow my question is did I do the right thing?or was I wrong? Is this a hereditary issue?
Thanks in advance for any help. Below is a picture of the brother.
