Please don't be upset but the case has taken a turn and I need different advice. I bought a dog from a breeder in Tx, I am in CA. The dog has hydrocephalus, water on the brain, and had to be given to the vet. It would be a severe problem, she wouldn't have lived along healthy live without surgery which would have costed upwords of $10,000, and even then she would have lived maybe past 2 yrs. the vet said. Well I told the breeder and she offered me another puppy, and I did some research while I thought about it. I saw from two seperate people that they purchased dogs from her that died before they left the breeders home, and she told me her pups were dying of a "mysterious" illness. I opted not to take a puppy and she said per her garuntee se was not going to give me my money back, even though she had sick puppies. I spoke to a lady who purchased a puppy before and it was fine, then she wanted to purchase another puppy from the same breeder, but the puppy died before he left the breeders home. She asked for her money back and the breeder said yes, but after a month she didn't return it. So the lady called and threateneda lawsuit and finally she returned her money. But she refuses to return mine. What should I do, if I wanted to sue her I would have to go to TX. Do you think a lawyers letter would help? Any advice is apreciated.
That is soooo sad. I am sorry to hear that you are having a hard time. I would do what the other lady did. Threaten to sue. It couldn't hurt. Tell her that you will be contacted by a lawyer soon. If she does not respond to that in the way you hope then getting a letter made up would be a good idea. Mention that the hernandez guy just got sued for something really similar lol.
I'm sorry you're having such a hard time, as well. I think a letter from a lawyer would hold a lot more weight than a letter from you threatening to sue her. You can find lawyers who are authorized to practice law in more than one state. Do what I originally suggested and call the local Bar Association in your county and they can direct you to a ow cost attorney. You minght even be able to find one who will handle the matter pro bono, which is no cost to you.
