Fraud in puppy sale

My husband and I had gotten a pure bred Boxer at the end of October and was told that she was act registered and we have never received the papers and have contacted the breeder 2-3 already and she always says that she will see what is holding them up and that we will get them within the week. We did pay good money for this puppy. Is there anything that we can do?

Answer

Based on what you say here, you could probably file suit against her (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no attorney...you could try to collect all of the costs and amages that you suffered due to her behavior...
