Puppy Lemon law - Minnesota

  Minnesota Lemon Law » You are here
This Law should apply to anyone who sells a puppy, but many backyard breeders selling dogs through the classifieds are unaware of their responsibilities. Minnesota pure-bred dog clubs are trying to educate the public of their rights and obligations under this Law. It is interesting to note that this Law pertains to cats also.

Pros: applies to all sellers of puppies, including back yard breeders.

Cons: back yard breeders are unaware of their obligations and do not make buyers aware of their rights.

* Applies to: pet dealers (any person, firm, etc., including breeders, that is required to collect state sales tax for the sale of animals to the public).

* Contagious or Infectious Disease: 10 days

* Congenital or Hereditary Defects: 1 year

* Failure to Produced Advertised Registration Papers: within 90 days, otherwise keep the animal and receive a refund 50% of purchase price, or return the animal for a full refund.

* Replacement: yes

* Refund: yes

* Reimbursement of Veterinary Expenses to Treat Dog: yes, up to the purchase price of the animal

Wondering how this law works, our contract as well as many others state that if the puppy is considered to have a congenital diagnosis they can be returned to us for a full refund or the first pick of the next litter. In any instance is the dog kept with the new owners and also given a refund or a new dog? It makes sense that if they are unhappy with the dog's condition they would return the dog for a refund or new puppy, do they ever get both? The law also states that, if the congenital condition is found, "the animal shall be considered unfit for sale at the time of sale" - how is this possible because as a breeder we are unaware of this problem until the buyer brought it to our attention. We have and never will intentionally sell an ill pup, and this law makes it sound as though we have. Help me understand this a little bit more please.
