    I think many breeders have such things in their. Interacts, co-own or not. It would still be on the breeder to take the owner to court and prove the dog isn't being cared for, if the owner doesn't willingly surrender the dog to them.

    I think that's the key - having every little detail in writing. And discussing it all first.




    I removed a breeder that I co-own with from my Facebook for this exact reason. Drove me F'ing nuts :rolleyes:




    Yes, most contracts do include this. But it's all in the wording. In this particular contract, it stated "conditions that the breeder deemed unsuitable" - so there was no taking to court for someone ELSE to rule if the situation was unsuitable. When I was shown the contract, I was in awe at the wording... on the surface, it looked fine and dandy, or to someone unfamiliar with the intricacies of breeding.. but it was really a minefield.

    Yikes...iphone rather screwed that up LOL

    I think many breeders have such things in their cobtracts, co-own or not.


    They would still need to pursue legal avenues to get the dog back, no matter what the wording unless the owner willingly handed the dog over.

    I think that with the right breeder I would be comfortable with it. If I do not end up with a rescue (ahem, lol), I've already started getting to know via email the breeder whom is my top choice and I know she does a lot of co-owns with dogs she wants to keep breeding rights to.

    The element of ensuring the dog would safely end up back in the right place should something happen to the owner it lives with didn't even occur to me, genius!

    Well, apparently the owner of this dog didn't know that... because when the breeder came for the dog and said the owner was required by contract to hand the dog over, they didn't think they had a choice because of how the contract was worded :-/

    It only works if the people who are taking care of the owner's estate know the dog is co-owned, have contact info and are willing to arrange for the dog to go back. Sadly some dogs end up in shelters who have co-owners or breeders who would have taken them back if they had known the dog was about to end up homeless.

    That really is sad :(
