training company is going to court after a costumer claims the dog they bought was untrained, and unhealthy... fox5's miguel martinez valle dug through court documents, and spoke to both parties involved... he joins us now with the story graciolett tells me she needed a protective dog because she lives alone and has been stalked before... so she did an online search and found custom k9 services... she says they advertised trained protection dogs but that's not what she recieved. there are those who say pets are priceless... but esther graciolett's dog thor came with a hefty pricetag... " medically, over 4,000 dollars for his procedures and its not over" 4,000 on top of the 65 hundred she paid to get him... graciolett needed a dog for protection. that's why she went to
services and spoke to susan and terry davis. " he basically pointed me in this direction and convinced me that this was the dog for me..." she brought him home, but says thor didn't live up to expectations. " he was not trained in personal protection at all..." " you can't sell a protection dog if it hasn't been trained as a protection dog if you don't have the correct licensing" graciolett and her atorney becky pintar say not only was thor untrained, he was unhealthy... " he's not been trained as a protection dog so that was a fraud, his clean bill of health, the shot records were fradulent" so they filed a lawsuit against the company and the owner dean kajioka represents ms. davis he says there was no fraud... they have a contract that shows graciolett got what she paid for. " the contract for this dog was for a sports dog, not a protection dog." i got a copy of the contract, it wasn't signed... when i asked the lawyer about this, he says the original signed copy was burned in a fire... he tells me the davis' didn't know
they haven't seen any proof of the dog's medical issues... " would not provide my client with any evidence of that, any vet records or anything" graciolett tells me they've submitted everything they've been asked for one thing both sides agree on, graciolett was offered a refund. " my client offered to refund the money for the return of the dog, but mrs. graciolett refused to do so" she says at that point she was too attached... the legal dog fight has gone on for months. they even went to arbitration. mr. kajioka has since filed a request for a new trial ... graciolett tells me she has since found out the company was not licensed for selling protection dogs at the time of the transaction... in fact they did recieve a citation for 25 hundred dollars the davis's attorney tells me they were in the process of securing that license but were allowed to sell sport and show dogs... i called the licensing board, they tell me today the company does
