California - What is the name of your state?
I would like to find advice/pro bono work in Los Angeles, CA re. Puppy Lemon Law.
I purchased in April 2005 2 puppies which were supposed to be sleve Pekingese with registration papers and great Pedigree papers.
I was told that:
A) they would grow only a a few inch and stay super small. They were 1/5 and 2 pounds when I bought them.
B) that they are healthy and not vaccinated or dewormed due to their fragile little build and age - hmmm why did he had them in the store in the first place.
C) that they are coming from a reputable breeder and personal friend
D) that the registration and pedigree papers will be there within 2-3 weeks
E) Got no help when puppies were sick - pretty much from day 1 with diareah
and blood in stool - found out next day that they both had parasites and need to be treated for 2 different parasites from 2 different vets
F) Didn't get correct informatio about the breeder - still don't have anything
G) Was told that the vaccination would only cost a few $ for both
H) Well now in August I have spend over $5000 on my promised healthy, small, super pedigree and registrated puppies - NONE was true - there both now nearly 3 times there size and weigh around 6.5 lbs.
I am still waiting for the papers, breeder info etc.
I) Told them that my husband is allergic to dogs - he told me that Peke's are hypoallergenic - nobody could confirm me that...and he is still sneezing ;-)
I am super upsad that I was taken advantage and that a pet store owner is telling this fairy tales to people and ripping me off $ 1500 per puppy alone!!!
$3000 for the puppies the rest is vet costs for vaccinations , treatments and spaying and neutering since they had nothing done!!
I don't want that others fall in the same trap - Heard from a friend that he and his friend who purchased birds from him had similar experiences and promisses about papers which never were delivered.
I hope that you can give me a tip re. pro bone lawyers and more about my rights - I checked the puppy lemon law CA and would like to proceed - but don't want to see him anymore nor deal with him in person. He costed me a lot of pain, worries and my savings! I would like to get compensated for all I went through and for the wrong price he charged me since I don't have sleve Pekingese as promised nor the rest he explained the $$ for....The puppies are used to us, we love them and we got them healthy, fixed etc.and I would never return them to this liar! But he should not just get away with that!
