Murray, KY asked in Contracts for Kentucky

Q: I purchased a pup from a breeder in MI. She brought the pup to KY and the contract was signed and paid for here.

The dog was turned out not to be what I specifically asked for and was returned to her. I have put 2 titles on the dog and a great foundation work in obedience training. He also had medical issues that my vet said are known to be hereditary in this breed. All at a good cost to me. Then there is the bond created with the dog. He was to go on to be my mobility dog. At 1st I was promised a replacement (stated in contract) and then was told my purchase price would be returned Feb 2021 but now refuses to speak to me. I have done some research and see that this seems to fall under the Uniform Commercial Code and by her actions and the contract entered there is an implied warranty of merchantability. The breeder is in breach. She wants me to file suit in her state. Since the sale transpired here do I have the right to file suit here in KY.?
