What type of lawyer do I need?

1 Answers. Asked on Jul 31st, 2017 on Animal Law - Connecticut
More details to this question:
2 yrs ago I bought a dog from a pet store. He was sold to us a purebred with AKC papers. Our veterinarian suspected he was not a purebred because of his size. We had a DNA test done and he is NOT a purebred as we were told. What kind of lawyer do we need to get to pursue a case against the pet store or the breeder. This dog was financed and will cost $6000 plus by the end of the payment contract.

I would suggest filing in Small Claims Court.  Any contract litigator should be able to assist you.  It sounds like fraud and breach of contract.  Please contact me if you would like further assistance in this matter.

Animal Law
Whether you own cats, dogs and other pets; breed animals for show and sale; raise livestock, or hunt wild animals, a host of federal, state and local laws govern animals and their welfare. Animal laws also intersect with our day-to-day lives: Can a landlord refuse to rent to you if you own a pet? Can service animals accompany their owners into places where pets aren't traditionally welcome? What happens to the beloved family pet when a couple gets divorced? Whether you're an animal advocate, have been accused of animal cruelty, have a pet that's died as a result of veterinary malpractice or are concerned about the welfare of animals at a local zoo or circus, you need the help of an experienced animal law attorney.
