A: Generally when you purchase an asset you receive all the parts that make up the asset (i.e. unborn puppies). Without knowing all of the facts it is impossible to know how to best advise you, but this sounds like a case that could be expensive for both parties and would leave both unhappy in the end because of the cost and potential outcomes. If the breeder is very demanding then I would suggest that you mediate the issue and come up with a compromise rather than suing each other. In any case, it is always good to attend a consultation with a local attorney who will advise you best about your specific situation.
