A person I love and respect recommended Lego for a breeding to a non CWCCA member who had bred one time before. I made a verbal agreement with this person for a Stud fee with a reasonable deposit and the balance due when the puppies were 2 weeks of age, provided there were 2 live puppies. The semen was sent and the bitch took. The puppies were born 3 weeks ago. This "breeder" did not watch her bitch and had no idea that the first puppy was born under a bed. Later she did notice the bitch was in distress and took her to the vet. A C-section was performed. One puppy was stuck in the birth canal and died. Two more puppies survived. The puppy born under the bed was not found until she returned home from the Vet. Of course, this puppy did not survive either. This breeder has refused to pay the balance of the stud fee stating that she did not get what she wanted from this breeding and even demanded that I return the deposit. I know there are a lot of breeders who read this blog. Any suggestions on how to handle this unscrupulous person?
