Breeder didn’t disclose genetic eye disorder in her contract.

This puppy was purchased from a breeder in CA, which has a puppy lemon law. My vet saw him two days after I got him and diagnosed the problem. The breeder won't take responsibility. This puppy is facing several surgeries that could cost $3000+. We’re keeping the puppy. What kind of attorney could help me with this?

Want to know if this is a scam.

After paying a person who is supposed to be selling a dog upfront, they keep asking for more money, such as gas money and extra fees. Now they are asking us to fill out a registry paper that requires our name, driver's license, social security number, and address. Is this normal, or is it a scam?

Contract breach.

I paid a cat breeder in full in June 2023. She operates a closed cattery and promised a kitten in December. However, she offered me a kitten from a different cattery, not under her care, and is refusing to refund me. She is attempting to shift blame to me for not accepting that kitten. What are my rights in this situation?

Breeder dispute.

I purchased a Yorkshire Terrier, believing it to be purebred. However, a groomer suggested a DNA test, which revealed she's a mix of three breeds. The breeder registered the puppies, and she's offered a $400 refund out of the $800 I paid. What should be my next step?

I bought a dog that was supposed to be purebred and isn’t

I bought a dog from a breeder, and he told me it was supposed to be 100% Belgian Malinois. The breeder ended up posting a DNA test from the father of the litter we got her from, and it said that he was 40.5% Dutch Shepherd, 31% German Shepherd, and 28.5% Belgian Malinois. So, we did a DNA test on our puppy, and she came back with 48.9% Belgian Malinois, 12.7% German Shepherd, and 38.4% Dutch Shepherd. We spent $2500 on her, and I want to keep her. I just want to ensure that he won't do it again.

Breeder breaching contract.

I placed a deposit for a puppy after filling out an extensive puppy application with references which was accepted. The breeder has now changed her mind and doesn’t want to sell me a puppy claiming she believes I will find fault with the puppy and refunded my deposit. What legal actions do I have and what is the success rate?

How can I get my dog back after selling it?

I bought my daughter a puppy to help with her depression on September 2nd, 2022. 2 days ago, we sold the puppy to see if she would be okay without her and she is not. We have a doctor's note that she HAS to have the dog with her at ALL times. The family that has the puppy is rude and irresponsible and we want the puppy back. How do we get her back? (No contract was signed)

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?
