A Tampa puppy owner is suing a pet breeder after having to euthanize his new dog.
Joshua Shade paid breeder Rastesfa Ball $2,600 for a two-month-old mastiff named Marshall back in February.
But, less than three months later, veterinarians found Marshall suffered from congestive heart failure, leading him to be euthanized.
Now, using the state’s Pet Lemon Law, Shade is seeking a refund, plus veterinary costs — $3,772. That law requires pet sellers to have a certificate of veterinary inspection, and also reimburse a buyer if it’s discovered the animal is sick within a year of purchase.
