Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
When you say get the dog back, in what way?
If he was to use your dogs picture, wouldn't someone else see it was a different dog when they came to collect it?
well he said he was a breeder of French bull dogs (which sell for anything up to £5000 ) depending on their pedigree and when I was searching for a breeder I went to a kennel club breeder (or so I thought). I an concerned that something very illegal is going on here . the pedigree dogs come in particular markings and can look very similar as proved as I was given the wrong fawn with a black muzzle pup, which was older than advertised
Indeed, it does seem strange. I would at first case report it to the Police, so if anything does happen, they have a record to start with.
As for him getting the dog back, unless he comes to steal it, there is nothing the Police can do
You can't go to Court and get an injunction unless there has been a threat or anything.
At this stage, he just said good luck
So unless there is anything illegal, the Police wont and cant do anything
As for the picture, again the Police wont act unless there is anything illegal
You dont know that he is trying to sell your pup or the other pups wrongly.
All you can do is report the matter to the Police about your concerns
Trade and standards are on the case and I think that they have been in contact with Mr Rogers , who's panicking and basically
Nothing illegal has happened and whilst the circumstances are a little strange, nothing illegal has taken place.
If Trading Standards are involved then you need not do anytihng
But keep the pup secure for the moment and do not leave unattended.
offered me money to end any further inquiries'
But at this stage, it does not appear there is anything illegal as such
Yes but offering you a refund is not in itself illegal.
I agree the circumstances regarding Hungry are unusual but this is in hand
I know that if the dog was born in the EU , he has to be registered as an illegal import on the pedigree Kennel club record and he has been registered as being born in uk and given another date of birth
What legal question would you like to ask me about this situation?
if I take his money as way of compensation for the mix up , will he be entitled to claim my dog back? also just to clarify I have no wish to breed from my puppy or sell him as he is a family pet.
No. He has never asked for the dog back, he has just simply said here is a refund
So no - he would not be able to demand it back
Ok thanks , I was surprised he offered to give me my money back, I just think he wants it to go no further with Trade and standards which is fine by me if he refunds me
Yes I was surprised too
But Trading Standards are on the case
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
he just said if they contact you , just say you are satisfied now
Ok, you are satisfied. I think he does not want Trading Standards to investigate for whatever reason
But in any event the fact you have the dog and your money is unusal
what do you suggest I do
At this stage nothing is needed.
You have the dog, you have the money
Just let Trading Standards continue to work
At the moment you have not suffered any loss and indeed financially better off
Can I clarify anything else for you about this?
no that's all thanks
