Good evening. If there was nothing wrong with the puppy, you are under no obligation to unwind the transaction if she simply changed her mind. If there was something fundamentally wrong with the puppy....such as serious health issue...then the purchaser does have a claim and you should probably refund her money. If she keeps threatening you, you can tell her if she continues you will have no choice but to contact the district attorney's office to file criminal harrassment charges against her.

 

 

I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
