Ok so I never watch those Peoples Court thingys, but I was over at Patricks mothers house and she is addicted to trash TV hehe. So on comes a case about a guy who is suing his neighbor because his neighbors dog got his purebred rottweiller pregnant, he thinks.
Apparently the guy breeds his female and male purebred Rottweillers, which doesn't seem bad right? He keeps went to work and his sister let the dogs into their fenced in backyard to go play/potty. Nothing wrong with that either. Well the sister hears a commotion outside, calls the dogs, and only the male comes. She goes outside to find the neighbors dog humping the female rotty. Doh! She calls her brother and he comes racing home from work, takes the female dog to the vets, vet said he can't tell yet if the dog is pregnant or not. So while hes there he decided to get the dog her shots, and have her spayed. So he's suing the owner of the other dog for $2000 because he had lost the money from not having purebred puppies, and for the cost of the spay, AND for the vaccinations.
The neighbor admits his dog got out of his fenced yard, he also admits his dog has been escaping a lot in the past 5 years. "At least 100 times" he said.
The judge ruled in favor of the defendant since the purebreds owner couldn't prove the dog had 1. been impregnated to begin with, 2. been impregnated by the neighbors dog.
Now I know its been said that some of these mock court shows are fake, and I certainly hope they are. Because both of those parties were terrible animal owners! The breeder who obviously only cared about the money and didn't give a flying hoot for his dogs other than what he could gain financially from them, and the stupid dog owner that knew there was a hole in his fence, knew his dog regularly escaped, and yet did nothing to fix it!! ARGH!!!
