Area of Law:
In Jan, 2012 I wanted a puppy, so I sent the owner two hundred dollars. She wanted five hundred as a downpayment. Then I realized I could not afford the puppy... sent her an e-mail stating she could keep part of the two hundred and send me the rest. So the puppy was born afterwards on Jan 18, 2012. At my request she said at one point she was saving me the pick of the litter. However... I did not want the puppy bucause I knew I could not afford it. Time went on and I asked her to save me a puppy from THE SECOND litter. She said they were all sold, and she was going to keep the first puppy. About five minutes later another e-mail came from her stating she wanted to know when we could pick up the puppy! I was not ready for this at all! Awhile went by and my friend and I were able to send her another five hundred dollars. Okay... now with the second litter she had... the older pup was in her way, so she e-mailed when we could get the puppy. (at her convience) Went about sixty miles (called her first) and we waited for well over an hour outside before she would even answer the door! She said the night before, she would have everything typed up so we knew what shot the pup had and the whole nine yards. Well, finally after she answered the door, she did not have anything ready! She ended up writing a flimsy agreement on a piece of paper and she signed it and she requested me to sign it. AND wanted a copy of my drivers license! At this time I told her that money was tight and I did not know when I could pay the balance of $1,3025. but she said something like it was okay to take my time. NOW SHE WANTS TO TAKE ME TO COURT BECAUSE I HAVE NOT SENT HER ANYTHING and she claims the signing of the paper (without any witness) is legal. I've talked with her and she said today I can send monies. Oh, oh... I did not notice the rash on the pup or the large bump he has on his side WHEN SHE PUT HIM INTO MY ARMS. I wanted to get out of her house asap because of the ride I had waiting for me. Would you please help with my payment question and the dogs health prior to getinh him. Also my friend seems to be allergic to the dog so I will be forced to get rid of him. May I before he is paid for? Thank You!
