Awe, thanks! Actually, I didn't realize it was this late in the day, and don't want to sit in Atlanta rush-hour traffic - won't get there any sooner, so I might as well wait until it dies down, save myself some stress, and go to the hospital later. Any suggestions as to a gift I should take to him? He'll be in there for about 6 more days, and prolly bored during that time.
Hmmm, I was hoping you had paid the breeders by check. That way, you could serve them with a lawsuit via service by publication, and more than likely they wouldn't show up in court, and you could get a default judgment against them, then garnish their bank account (which info. would be located on the back of your cancelled check
Anyway, I went ahead and tried to locate them. It appears that they moved not long ago, and may have forwarded their mail. You might first try sending them some type of "junk" mail (an ad that you received in the mail that you don't want - lol) to their old address, and on the front of the envelope, place in large print "FORWARDING ADDRESS REQUESTED". Don't put your name on the envelope - just your address, so that they won't recognize you if it is forwarded to them and the post office will have your address to notify you of their new one. Send that regular mail (not certified, of course), but put 2 stamps on it (sometimes flags your mail and encourages the post office to comply with your forwarding request
). Hopefully, you'll get their new address using that method.
If that fails, let's give it a lil more time, so that their new address will get added to the national databases, and we can cross-reference their info. (it's currently showing up with their old address and telephone number). You're still well within the statute of limitations, so there's still time left to wait.
Also, chances are that they're still breeding, and will advertise somewhere. How did you find out that they were selling puppies? And, do you know what else they might breed, or what type of work either of them do, other than breeding? There may be some other avenues there (AKC, email solicitation, etc.).
