I have a question for an accquaintance. I don't know any of the background or any info other than what I am offering up here... She got a poodle puppy from a breeder in California (I do not know who the breeder is nor what their practices are.) and the puppy was flown in last week. Last night the puppy had to be put to sleep after it contracted Parvo. she is beside herself with grief. She wants to know what her options are for recourse. As far as I know she has not talked to the breeder directly (but I'm not certain on that... so contacting the breeder was my first bit of advice) After that is there anything she can do? She is running on the assumption that this breeder has done something seriously wrong. I don't know if this is true or if she is running on pure emotion right now which is totally understandable. What should she do if anything? and please... save the flame wars. it's not going to help anyone now. I just told her I would look into what she could do if anything. Nothing is going to fix her broken heart but I told her I would ask anyway.
