we paid 320 pounds for the pup when we got the pup it kept being sick and had very bad bloody diahrroea the pup is now back with the breeder who has sold it on to another buyer

Expert:  JGM replied 4 years ago.
As the breeder has taken the animal back he has accepted your rejection of it under section 14 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979. Because of this you are entitled to claim damages from him, including the purchase price.

Happy to discuss further.
