What if she tries to offer us a replacement puppie instead of cash? Would we have to agree to give our puppies back that we have had for 4 months now and become attached to as family members? Because I think that is what she is going to try to do is offer us replacement puppies. But we do not want to give back our puppies that we've alreadygrown attached to .
What if we agreed to accept replacement puppies but with the stipulation we're not givinf back our puppies. We have not decided what we are going to do yet but just wanting to know all our options
Well one of the problems is that she only gave 1 contract to the other girk who bought a puppy and would NEVER give me my contract. But would she be held to uphold the contract she gave the other girl for her puppy for me also? Because obviously I can't get one from her now because she will only change it from what the original one said. But I asked her repeatedly for 5 months to send me my contracts and she refused. Also she refuses to send me my AKC papers on my puppy.
Last question. I live in Texas but the other girl lives in Missouri and the breeder lives in Texas. Would we be able to have a joint law suit against the breeder or would we both have to file separately since she lives in another state? She is more then willing to come to texas if this ends up going to court to have a joint suit against her.
Awesome. Thank you so much for your help. Is there anything I can do to prevent her from doing this to others? She has other puppies she is trying to sell advertising them as the parents being health tested and they are not. She is a scam artist. Charging $2900 for AKC standard poodles from health tested parents and pedigree lines they don't come from.
A new question has come up if you can stilk answer. If these puppies were part of a shared litter between two breeders (one owned the mom and one owned the dad) both breeders won't be held liable will they? Because all of the business and communication was only done through the 1 breeder and the other breeder had nothing to do with all the lies and deception. She's just now finding out about all the horrible things this other breeder has put us through.
But the other breeder would have to be able to prove that she knew and that would be a separate suit that the breeder would have to file against the other breeder. Correct. It would have nothing to do with our case.
So if we file a fraud and deception case against the breeder we would beable to sue her for all 4 of the puppies we purchased from her . Not just the two with the hereditary defect. Correct.
Even if the 2 puppies that are normal are not worth the $1300 we paid for them thinking they came from this great pedigree and health tested parents?
That is fine. It is hard to ask questions when you only know part of what I know. But between the 4 dogs (she bought 2 and I bought two) she made close to $4500 off us from lying.
Okay. Because if we would have known what we know now we would have NEVER bought any dogs from her.
I definitely will. Also can you tell me what is the legal way of warning people on certain sites such as Facebook to beware of her because she is lying? I don't want her to say we are slandering her or something but I think people should be aware that she is a liar
Okay thank you. I will let you know the outcome of all this
Could you tell me what kind of attorney I need to contact to have a properly written letter written up to send the breeder?
