the breeder said it was a purebred with no papers. We bought a dna test and turns out he is half german shepherd. He is five months.

Theoretically, there is a breach of contract case assuming you have the evidence to prove the breach. If there is a contract stating you purchased a purebred for x price, then there is a breach of contract. Normally, the remedy is to return the dog and get your money back.

Obviously, you had enough time to determine nobody was apparently injured. You did not say if there was vehicle damage. If you gave the other driver your contact information, it should not be considered a hit and run. However, you still could face charges for lack of driver's license and... Read more »

If I am understanding the facts correctly, your dog trespassed onto the neighbor's property. You stated this was the 2nd time your dog had done this, so an argument could be made that you knew there was a risk of your dog trespassing and the issues should have been previously addressed, by...

The easiest thing to do is contact the pound and provide them documentation of the chip information that the animal is yours. Then go pick up your animal. I have had two of my pets returned this way.

I would look to your rental agreement to see if the issue of dog neutering is addressed. Landlords can have a policy of no dogs or only neutered dogs. If your dog is a service dog, then the landlord will need to accommodate your disability. I am not sure if the neutered status of your dog affects... Read more »
I have the claim number and was told to go to a shop and get a quote. Am I allowed to get my car fixed or to accept payment since I am not insured?
answered on Jun 10, 2020
Even though you were at-fault for the accident, you are entitled to get your vehicle fixed. However, you may be precluded from receiving non-economic damages for your pain and suffering if you were injured if you have not been insured within the last 6 months, assuming the accident was in Oregon.
May, 2020: Our neighbor had people visiting, and they were about to leave, and my dog heard them talking loudly and ran outside. We ran outside to get her and this woman told me that my dog had bitten her. She showed me her bite mark, and it was not bleeding; it looked like teeth marks in the skin,... Read more »

She is partially right because the dog could be considered an attractive nuisance for a child who may not appreciate the danger. She, on the other hand, is an adult. Arguably, she trespassed on your property when she should have been aware of the danger and was bitten. If she is requesting... Read more »

To answer this question, further questions need to be asked. State law could affect the answer. If I had to guess, you have personal injury protection, PIP.
