Puppy Lemon law - California

This Law is the most hard on sellers of unhealthy dogs, but hobby breeders do not fall under its provisions except for the extremely active ones. As with the Florida Law, it is important to note that costs of testing to certify a dog unhealthy could double what a seller is obligated to refund to the purchaser. It is also important to note that this Law obligates the seller to cover 1½ times the purchase price of the dog in veterinary expenses should the purchaser elect to have the dog treated.

Pros: long period in which to find congenital or hereditary conditions

Update 4-6-2001 Pertains to anyone who sold, transferred, or given away two or more litters during the preceding calendar year.

See: AB 161

Cons: obligation to cover veterinary expenses above the purchase price of the dog may be considered punitive.

* Applies to: any one who sells more than 50 dogs per year.

* Contagious or Infectious Disease: 15 days
