YES. Under the New York Pet Lemon Law, you can return or exchange the puppy for an equivalent replacement puppy, for a full refund AND reasonable veterinary fees, or you can keep the puppy AND get reimbursement for reasonable vet fees not to exceed the price of the puppy. But you must act FAST- you have 14 days from the time of purchase to get a vet to certify the puppy was not fit for purchase (and it sounds like you definitely can), and use a form that has the language thats found in NY Gen Bus Law sections 753 and 754. Once you do that, the pet store has 10 days to give you a refund, or you're free to take the pet store to court. You can take the pet store straight to court, too.

Report Abuse
Most people and business enter into contracts on almost a daily basis. Simply put, a contract is a legally binding agreement between two parties. One party makes an offer to do something in exchange for "consideration," or payment, and the other party accepts that offer. Contacts can be verbal, in writing or even implied. Some contracts--such as signed credit card receipts--are very simple. Others--such as those used to buy or sell real estate--are far more complicated. If you are entering into a complex transaction, it pays to hire a contract law attorney as early as possible in the process. Your lawyer can help negotiate the terms and conditions of the agreement, then draft the contract or review the contract that has been presented to you. Law firms with experience in contract law can also defend you if you or your company has been accused of breaching a contract, or if you need assistance enforcing a existing contract.
