////Breeder lied about Purebred Status. What can I do?


KSL Breeder advertised Purebred White German Shepherd for $500.00. A year later I did a DNA test to find out he is not a purebred White German Shepherd, but only 66.7% White Shepherd and 20.8% Husky and 11.5 Shiloh Shepherd. Can I do anything?


I cannot attest to the accuracy of dog DNA tests. People who believe that the breed of the dog they purchased was misrepresented by the seller can sue to try to get compensated for the difference in monetary value between the breed represented and the breed or mixed breed received. The Attorney General and consumer protection organizations may also be contacted regarding fraudulent business practices. I hope the dog is loved regardless of his breed.
