I bred my dog just over 5 years ago I sold one of the

Customer Question

Hi. I bred my dog just over 5 years ago I sold one of the pups to a girl in uk, at the time she suggested that we went into joint names on 2 of the females the one she was buying and the one we where keeping, the terms where that we would each get a pup back from the two females when breed with, this we agreed to verbally. Sometime later this person said that the female wasnt going to be used for breeding as apparently there was something wrong with her eye so the female was passed on to a pet home, we don't know where the dog was passed onto except it was a called called Marion, don't know an address or if money changed hands. A while after this the person who bought the pup originally passed all the dogs onto different people as her husband was found guilty of a drug ring and sentence to prison . She then moved a couple of times because of this but did not know where to. There has been very little contact with her as we have no time for this sort of nonsense .
Last Feb 2015 we bred the female we kept paid for a stud fee from a dog in Holland paid for the trip out there, and informed her breeding the female, but unfortunately it didn't work but said we would probably breed again on her next cycle to a dig closer to home. We did this in November but there was only one pup a male, we paid for another stud fee and the female had to have a section by the vet which was expensive. This person now wants to be involved with the new pup, without supporting the female financially for stud or vet fees, is she with in her right to expect this.

What agreement did you make before breeding the dog with this person regarding division of puppies, expenses etc?Michael
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The only agreement was done verbally when she bought the pup five years ago, we both where to own part in two dogs the female she took back with her and the female we kept, the agreement was that we would get a pup back from the female she kept and she would get back a pup from the female we kept all depending how many was in the litters

No agreement was made on expenses

I'm really concerned about our kennel name being tarnished by her kennel name due to her husbands involvement with drugs and a prison sentence.

What specifically was the agreement in respect of pups and did you consider what the position would be if there was only one pup?Michael
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The discussion never came up ref one pup, this was our first time of mating a dog and all we agreed to was that when she bred her female we would get a pup from the litter depending on how many was in the litter and when we bred our female she would get a pup from the litter depending on how many there was in litter.

In that case there was no agreement and nothing for her to insist upon.It all comes down to what was agreed - the contract.Michael
