You are probably out of luck. Sounds like a byb or miller and they usually don't do anything once the dog has left their property. Not ALL are like this - but if they haven't responded to you then I doubt they will.
Good Luck. I bought a puppy and she had walking dandruff and I contacted the people I bought her from and they wouldn't do a thing about it, not that it mattered because I would have taken care of it myself. I had another problem and tryed to contact them and low and behold, phone number not working and email address not available anymore. BYB or what??? I hope your puppy is okay now.
This is why I would never have a puppy shipped. You have no idea who you are really dealing with until there's a problem. Even if you have a contract, it can be difficult, if not impossible to enforce, long distance. I hope your pup recovers and next time buy from a breeder you can visit in person.
