This seems like a no brainer to me. If there isn't any proof provided that the dog has ED, then obviously I wouldn't give her a new dog (puppy). You left out the part of your story regarding when and how she contacted you in regards to the dog having ED, but it sounds like you decided to do the breeding she originally wanted, and then she said the current dog had ED and now wants a free puppy from the litter she originally wanted?
I don't understand at all how she could sue you, sounds like a BS claim (anyone can sue anyone of course, but I don't see how she could win such a suit) made to get you to provide a litter for a breeding she possibly had a despoit on? I would've returned the deposit and washed my hands of this woman.
No, I did not do the breeding she originally wanted. She called to get a pup basically for a companion to ob train that would be safe with her show line female. Supposedly had a fenced yard. Dog five or six mo old and she called in tears how her boy friend was going to have animal control pick the dog up because it bit his four yr old niece ( didn't break the skin).asked how that happened, she explained they keep him tied to a tree in front yard, kid ran passed, pup did what pups do. I read her the riot act and told her I'd take the dog back. She wanted to keep him, so would move out. I offered to keep this dog til she relocated, free of charge, but she ended up kicking boyfriend out. Whew!!! Sounds like, feels like soap opera. Didn't hear anything til one day almost two years ago, she called on her way back from training in Illinois, (she lives in SC.) Told me how great her dog is doing after elbow surgery and how impressed the trainers are at the club some fifteen HUNDRED miles away from where she lives, that she trains with on weekends. Then about six months later, she asked if I had an older pup that could mondio or FR ring or some such. Told about a super twelve week old female I'd started training that I'd give her because of the prob with her dog. Then it turned into demanding a sable male with the same breeding as the dog she has(even though she was by then saying I sold her "a genetic defect", her words) then the ultimatums; date I was to have a pup available for her, or else. ( lawsuit and slather me and my supposed not standing by my dog all over the Internet if I didn't give her a pup from the breeding she demanded). Still haven't at that time ANY proof of ED. I said to her, when I have pup for her I'd let her know. Not good enough,She wanted one when SHE wanted it. So, I told her I'd give her a full refund with return of the dog. This was on my attorney's advice. Blocked her e mails because of abusiveness. It has been over a year since I have made a breeding, and, I true to my word, and against my attorney's advice( she said not to contact woman, let her make arrangement for delivery of dog to collect
refund). I asked for proof of ED, and now you know the rest by my prior posting. What else can I do?
