If altering animals was mandatory and people came door to door here, the problem would decrease dramatically. They could probably employ lots of people to do this sort of thing. Sadly a dog can't choose to go to the store to get protection before it has sex. As far as dogs coming from other places, I find that the rescues do this more then anything. The shelters in Chicago are so over crowded with dogs from right here that there isn't room for them, much less dogs from other areas. Its not a state issue its a whole country issue. The dogs have no say and are just subjects in a vicious circle. Its a lack of compassion, lack of education, and lack of responsibility in the human race that is the issue.

I'm not even going to get started on the fact that shelters are importing and shipping dogs by the dozen. My vet is extremely angry about the dogs coming up from down south, because they're bringing up things that our dogs are catching, things that were unheard of years ago.
If the government could mandate "compassion" and "responsibility" instead, then I'd agree with you. Why do so many people dump their pets? I know you couldn't do it and neither could I - although if we had no choice then we'd have to rehome them and I'd rather do that myself and I'd bet you would too.

The government doesn't give a rats patootie about animal welfare. They LOVE when people don't follow their rules so they can fine them.

|llombardo||Parvo is very environmental, given the time frame the pup got sick I would say where it was born but not necessarily from mom. It's odd that mom isn't vaccinated and didn't get it herself, but then again she could have been vaccinated as a pup and that was enough. As for laws on spay/neuter..everyday regular people are not smart enough to prevent pregnancy or think is cute to have puppies. Lots of people think it takes away from their manhood, with that thinking I'm all for mandatory spats/neuters. If pet owners can be that stupid then maybe the government should step in. Lots of these shelters are partially funded by government and that gives them the power to do what they want. How else are they suppose to control the pet population? There are so many dogs in shelters everywhere dying everyday, it's sickening and it's all because of people who don't spay/ neuter. Based on the alarming numbers I would have to say there is more of those kinds of people out there then people that do right by their dogs. It's got to start and end somewhere.|

|my boy diesel||
who knows where the parvo was picked up
trying to utilize such a lemon law would be fooldhardy
a waste of money at worst
the parvo could have come from birth place
or new home
the dirt impacted in the stomach and intestines
could have come from birth place
or new home either one
the dirt could have easily made
the parvo worse
either way he may have survived parvo
had it not been for the dirt
and that can't be proven where
it originated without some csi like detective
so pointless to pursue lemon law

I was having a conversation, relevant to the topic at hand, and you took quotes from me and moved them over here? To a thread with no title/point? I'm just confused. Lol none of this has anything to do with helping the OP prevent more dogs being bred by these people.. Which I'm all for if there is already a law in place, otherwise I would definitely not be interested. People like that shouldn't be breeding though.

The way I look at it is this:
1. This person may still be a friend, or a friend of a friend and for friendship's sake, I would never try to force this issue.
2. We cannot for absolute certain say that the parvo originated at the breeders. We may believe so. We have heard (heresay) that other puppies were ill. But we cannot be certain that this is the case. So unless the vet is willing to go out on a limb here, it is shaky at best.
3. To earn back the possibility of UP TO $150, she will have to shell out $25 (if California small claims cost $25), and miss a day of work, if she is going to continue to work for the vet. Also transportation cost to the court and the time.
This was a very unfortunate situation. I think that prolonging it by litigation isn't going to help anybody. And the rewards are not going help the OP, and they are not going to hurt the breeder all that much even if the full amount is awarded.
