I signed an "Agreement of Co-Ownership" with a dog Breeder

I signed an "Agreement of Co-Ownership" with a dog Breeder in NJ, I am in PA. I was to raise the puppy to the age that she could be shown AKC to achieve her Championship, then we would together decide who to breed her with and he was entitled to the pick puppy from the litter. I paid him $1500.00. The puppy lived with my family for 5 days... I kept telling him gently that the pup seemed 'lethargic' to me. He and I agreed that I should take her to my vet (he is 2.5 hrs from me) who determined that she had a UTI. He (the breeder) became "concerned for her health" and asked for her back. He promised to pay me back the $1,500. and that we could possibly partner on a different puppy. He came that night TO MY HOME and acted all frantic and refused to come into my house, and took the pup at the door and handed me a $1,500. check with "refund" written in the memo. He said he was taking her to his own vet. (This was supposed to be an 'expensive show dog') He called screaming later that night that nothing was wrong with her and what was I 'trying to pull?' Also, that I owed him $500. for "RETURNING a puppy that had nothing wrong with it". That was the first I had heard of that, it is not in the agreement I signed. The next morning he called to say he had STOP PAYMENT on the refund check. The American Kennel Club (AKC) told me to file a police report, then a report with Consumer Relations Dept of PA and THEN they would accept a complaint from me. I did both of those things. The AKC is siding with him by their wording in their correspondence to me. There is all kinds of language on the 2nd page of this "Agreement for Co-Ownership" that sounds like if we go to civil court and I lose I owe him ANOTHER $5000. plus court costs. I have never sued anyone or gone to court and I am 50 years old. I have tried sending him certified letter and emailing to resolve amicably and either get our puppy back or a refund. He does not respond or accept the letter. MY HUSBAND says civil court across state lines will be a waste of time and money since NJ cannot enforce what happened in PA. All the money I had saved up I gave this man. What can I do??JA: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?Customer: I am in PA. He is in NJ. January 14, 2017.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: PA State Police Case #***** 17-61986, Commonwealth of PA office of Attorney General (*****@******.***) consumer complaint filed - no case # ***** Also, official complaint filed with American Kennel Club. I have all supporting documents including my bank's statement that his check was a Stop Payment.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that covers it. Thank you for trying to help me in advance. LORNA

Here is my situation followed by a question: In 2012 I

Here is my situation followed by a question:In 2012 I rented my home and placed it in the care of a property manager (I was being sent to live overseas so could not reside in or manage it myself). That property manager did not keep an eye on the property per our agreement and failed to collect all rent owed. The property manager was terminated in December of 2014 and a new property manager contracted in January 2015.The tenant left in March owing one month rent and damages exceeding deposit.The second property manager did not aggressively repair property and find tenants in a timely manner (took until August) despite multiple e-mails and phone calls from me. It seemed he always needed more money, more time, etc. I asked for receipts for the alleged repairs and never received one. A tenant finally got in the home in September but there were issues with appliances, heat, and hot water. I was not told of this and the property manager did not actively pursue repairs. Tenant ended up hiring someone and fixing things, deducting cost from rent. Also, property manager failed to forward rent monies for 95% of the months thus owing me over $15,000 in rent. I have been trying to arrange a visit to the house since my return and the property manager keeps staling. I finally wrote a letter to the tenants. I was shocked to hear he told tenants that if I were to reach out to them they were not to answer the door, phone, or let me in the house. He also ignored their requests for my information and for repairs. I now have damage to the home from repairs the tenants said needed to be made (ex. damaged floor and subfloor from leaking fridge).I want to know the best way to collect the rent owed (over $15,000), the damages caused by failure of PM to act in a timely manner (floor damage caused by leaking fridge that could have been prevented), and property management fees since he did not do his job. The house is in Kent County Delaware. Do I file a criminal complaint of theft with the local police department? What kind of attorney do I need since this exceeds small claims court? Final question, can I file to have my attorney fees reimbursed?
