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?

Take Dog Back.

So I bought a dog back in July and I didn't pay for her in full. I told the people I got her from I would pay for the rest of her by the end of the month, but then I became homeless, and then got another house. I just didn't have the funds to pay for her right away and I informed the breeder every step of the way and they said ok. Then after 8 months of me having her they said I owed WAYY more money then I originally did for the late fee charges. BUT I never signed a contract, and I asked the breeders to write one up but they never did, and so because I didn't receive a contract stating that if I didn't pay her off by a certain date there would be late fee charges. I told her I wasn't paying late fee charges so now they are taking me to court for the rest of the money I owe on the dog PLUS late fee charges AND they want her back. NONE of us signed a contract agreeing to anything, so I'm just curious if she can really get the dog back and make me pay late fee charges, or if I will just have to pay off what I originally owed on the dog and be on my way.
