Asked in Contracts and Animal / Dog Law for Florida

Q: My wife and I bought our Golden Retriever from pet land under the impression she could and would be AKC registered

How’re after review of her profile document she is ACA registered instead. The pet store assured us that as her parents were not only AKC registered and champion show dogs that she would as well. Once purchased we received all these congratulations from the AKC regarding our new dog and instructions on how to register.

Now that we have discovered she cannot be what do we do? Can we fight this with the pet store over misleading us? The dog was 5000.00 and that’s a lot of money for a dog that no one will want to breed with.

A: Perhaps if you will repost this interesting question and tell the lawyers who read it the REASON why the AKC will not register the dog you might get some better responses.

EVERYTHING happens for a reason. Not knowing the reason(s) things happen makes a difficult job even more difficult.
