Hi I do breed my Westies and Cairns. I had someone stud my Westie male out. I charged half of the stud fee at the time of service and the other when puppies were born or a second heat cycle free if the female didn't take, well the female didn't take the person called me and told me the female didn't take so I told her to come back for the second breeding, a few months later she called and told me the dog was in heat again so I told her to bring her over she called a couple days later and states her female has a split heat cycle and her vet says she could never breed so she wanted to use the money towards a puppy I said I would think about it and we could probably work something out, every time I had a litter I would let her know and she would never come to see the puppies, then when the puppies were 8 weeks of age call me and tell me she was coming to get her puppy, she did that 4 times then she had the nerve to take me to court and sue me for the full stud fee lying to the judge telling him it was a puppy deposit. I had me stud service papers showing the money was towards a stud fee not a puppy, the judge awarded her 1/2 the money back because she only recieved one breeding not two. After a few months I found on the internet that the dog who supposedly could never get pregnant had a litter of pups 2 months after she lied to me and said the dog could never be bred. The real kicker is she took me to court a couple months after her dogs had the puppies and lied to the judge about her dog not being able to get pregnant, she has also turned me into the BBB. What do you guys think of this situation?
If her dogs are registered with a decent registry, you can get the litter registration, and prove it was your sire's litter. That's if she did'nt lie to the registry. If they are not registered, basically you're out of luck. This kind of breeder is what gives breeders a bad name. Greedy, money -grubbing people with out an ounce of ethics.
Is there more to the story because if she lied to the judge and said it was for a puppy and then told the judge you only bred once then it would seem the judge would know she was lying so which one is it she told the judge it was for a puppy or she told the judge they only bred once.I dont see how any judge would let her change her story and then rule in her favor like that. Maybe you can counter sue her for something if there isnt something else behind this that is.
Your story was too hard to follow. Either days, weeks, months or years had passed during the events. 1 litter or several litters. I could not tell.
I had a top producing stud dog for several years and am quite familiar with stud contracts. Something is amiss in your story. If you could please restate the facts and give month/year dates to help me follow along better, I would be more than happy to offer my input.
