Well, if the puppy is sufficiently traumatized that it affects his ability to work, then yes, it could put him out of commission.

I have already met with an animal control officer to explain my side of the story. So after she reviewed his complaint and my input the case was closed as accidental.

I forgot to mention the neighbor is fostering this puppy lab and said he is in training to be a see and eye dog. Also that he is worth 42k and isn't sure if the puppy will still be able to get trained. The animal control officer said he is probably speaking out of emotions cause a few stitches wouldn't stop a puppy from this special training. Luckily the puppy is alive and didn't need drastic surgery.

So i know he is upset and i want to do everything i can to make it right. But i'm worried that he is trying to blow this out of proportion and take advantage of this situation.

Most of all i don't want him to go after my dog!!

get a lawyer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

What did the animal control officer say you should do?

I would think that a dog that cannot recover from an encounter with a dog would not be suitable as a seeing-eye dog. I know that my dogs have gotten stitches from other dogs and they have not become basket cases or dog aggressive. But who knows what someone might claim.

If he is fostering the dog for the seeing eye, wouldn't it be up to the owners of the dog, the organization to do the suing.

That would be important if it goes to court and this guy claims the dog is worth x and is being trained for the seeing eye, and those claims are not substantiated. I guess it depends on whether he tries to sue in small claims court or a different court. It makes sense to get your HO insurance involved maybe. I don't know. It's too bad you cannot talk to the guy. People say a lot in the heat of a situation, and they often think it through and feel differently after the fact.

That may or may not be true; and yes, what happened and what they "can claim" are quite possibly two vastly different things.

That puppy isn't worth $42k, trained or not.
Most fully trained service dogs top off to about $10,000 ($2,000 for pup, $2,000 for training, $6,000 for food, treats, traveling, time, vetting for 2 years).
He is taking advantage of you.

If the puppy is not able to recover and do training, then it wasn't service dog material anyways. That is why many get washed out-- because they cannot overcome a little minor negative experience (poor nerves, low threshold).

If he didn't offer his exchange of contact then I wouldn't have given him mine.. Any reasonable person would want to sort this out under the table. I think he is just trying to scare you.

Correct. Insurance coverage is my niche.
