Additional Notes

Complaint: On January 26, 2016 I purchased at Papillon puppy from Breeders Club of America, previously American Puppy Club in Middletown, NJ. We had to return the puppy because of personal reasons and did so within 14 hours of bringing puppy home. We asked to see another breed of puppy that would be better suited for our family, but any breed we were interested in including mixed breed puppies, Breeder's Club said they were not able to get them in any time soon, at least a year. So I have store credit of $1,240.13 but it can only be used for a special ordered dog, but any breed which were quite a few that I'd be interested in, they weren't able to get. Now I have a credit that needs to be renewed every 2 years to keep active to be able to be used there. But being they can't provide my family and I with a dog we'd be happy with, and what we want, I would really like to be reimbursed the $1347.01 that I was told I needed to give them in cash on January 27, 2016 to return the puppy and be given store credit.

Desired Settlement: To be reimbursed the money I gave them in cash on January 27, 2016 equal to my store credit of $1,240.13
