IF you have a lawyer on retainer all the time s/he would probably handle it with little to no additional expense. For most of us, lawyer's fees & expenses will quickly chew through most or all that might be won on a dog which cost $1500-$2000.
Getting a bad check covered can be as problematic as enforcing a contract, especially across state lines. Most breeders specify the check must clear before the pup can be picked up.
I agree that all of this should be kept in mind prior to buying a pup. That's essentially what I'm advising when I suggest people do business with breeders they consider trustworthy & ethical.

|huntergreen||not quite ruby, expensive? maybe, but that is why we have lawyers. all that should be kept in mind if you buy your pup a considerable distance away. of course you bounce a check to some of these breeders you will see how easy it is for them to come after you. the same is true for enforcing a contract.|

I would buy a dog from someone I trusted without a contract. I would never do a contract with someone I didn't trust regardless of how 'good' the terms appeared to be. Not that contracts are worthless. They can give both parties a clear idea of each parties rights & responsibilities. They can indicate what recourse is available if problems arise. They *might* give some indication of how much confidence the breeder has in the pups produced.
It's important that people approach contracts with their eyes wide open & not blindly trusting the nebulous protection of a legally binding document. Having a contract is one thing. Enforcing that contract is entirely something else.

|huntergreen||that is why adults read the contract and make sure they understand the terms. if you sign the contract there shouldn't be any red flags you were/are not aware of.|
