I am in the middle of something like this now with Hunter..
The story as it was told to me when I got Hunter was nothing more then " waiting for the DNA before you can get your AKC paper work"
What I learned was a whole different thing then what I thought was stated.
The story, as I have now got it from the AKC and then the breeder, Hunters Fathers, Father is in question. This was something that happened out in Ill. I guess. When it was figured out, They attemepted to change the paperwork, AKC said no way, not with out proof. What makes this difficult, Hunters Fathers, Father, had been killed, anitfreeeze by a nasty neighbor, so the DNA had to come from some other source..
The status of this now, as I know it, the DNA testing has been completed, and is now in route to the AKC for a ruling.
We bought Hunter as a pet, but when we kept hearing all of Positive feedback about Hunter, then is when my wife decided to possibley show him.
When I confronted the Breeder, after I learned what was going on. She imediately said" well you can bring the puppy back, and I will give you a refund" This PIZZED me off, if I could have gotten through the phone, she would not have survived. I replied.. " How about I get myself a lawyer, I keep my dog, you give me my money back, pay for my lawyer, and I get another dog". She calmed down, and this was when I learned EVERYTHING that was going on.
I believe this DNA thing from the AKC is going to be a good thing though, it will keep some of the trash from dealing dogs. We had promised our breeder that HUnter was going to be Hip checked, knee checked, and a DNA swab at the age of 1. Although I am hearing that we shouldnt do the hip and elbows until the age of 2?
