HelloMy name is XXXXX XXXXX X look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regardI suggest that you will need to get documentation from your Vet or dog behavioral specialist and send copies of those to the breeder. Tell her that as agreed, if the dog had behaviorial problems you would be allowed to have it neutered and with the documentation showing that is the case you expect her to hold her end of the ageement.The letter should be mailed certified with a return receipt requested.
If she still balks, then I suggest if you do not follow thru she can sue you - and so you would need to show that there was a verbal contingency to the original contract to breed.I suggest that if you are so inclined, you can make her a nomimal offer for her trouble and to allow you out of the breeding portion of the contract
I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated.
> and so you would need to show that there was a verbal contingency to the original contract to breed.How could we do this?
Perhaps we need to get her to say it over a phone call or text that we record? (Not sure how legal it is to record someone without their knowledge in WA, over the phone or otherwise...)
