Breeder sues animal clinic, claiming mix-up almost killed   champion show 
dog...

November 09, 2009, 6:47PM
NORTH RIDGEVILLE,  Ohio ââ?¬â?? A breeder from  Columbus has sued a North 
Ridgeville animal  clinic over a breeding mix-up that  almost killed her 
champion 
show  dog.  
Barbara Lea Jacobs charges that her purebred Pembroke Welsh  corgi was  
inseminated with semen from both a corgi and from a Great  Pyrenees, which 
is  
five times the size of a corgi, because the semen  was negligently mixed by 
 
veterinarian Dr. Robert Hutchison and  Animal Clinic Northview.  
"It was like breeding an elephant to a  gazelle. She almost died. They  
destroyed the value of this bitch,"  said attorney David Jay Hyman, who is  
representing Jacobs and is  also a breeder of show dogs.  
The suit, filed in Delaware County, was  transferred to Lorain County 
Common 
Pleas Court last week on a motion by  Hutchison's attorney Todd Haemmerle.  
Haemmerle said he could not  comment on the case. Hutchison, who was also  
named individually in  the suit, did not return phone calls.  
Hyman said the corgi, known as  Gwynne, was inseminated in 2007 with semen  
from a 30-pound corgi  that was contaminated with semen from a 150-pound 
Great   Pyrenees.  
Gwynne conceived a litter that included two purebred  corgis, six 
"abnormally  large" Pyr-Corgi puppies and a puppy that  died shortly after 
birth, 
according to  the suit. Gwynne grew so  large during the pregnancy that she 
was 
unable to eat  normally or  walk, and the puppies had to be delivered by 
cesarean section.   
"She continued to bleed for three months, and was unable to care for  her  
puppies," Hyman said. "She ultimately had to be spayed" --  destroying her  
reproductive and economic value to Jacobs, and ending  her show career 
because  
spayed or neutered dogs cannot compete in  American Kennel Club shows.  
Gwynne had one litter of puppies  previously, and would have been bred 
again 
several times, Hyman said.  Purebred Pembroke Welsh corgi puppies are 
valued at  $2,000 to  $3,500, he said.  
Hutchison, who is recognized by breeders  internationally as an authority 
on 
small animal fertility and  reproduction, produces approximately 150 frozen 
semen  litters  yearly, according to the Web site for Animal Clinic 
Northview.   
The suit alleges four counts of negligence, fraud and breach of warranty,  
and  seeks compensatory and punitive damages of $800,000 per count.  Three 
other  veterinarians who are shareholders in the clinic --  Brian 
Greenfield, 
Randall  Hutchison and Matthew Wilson -- were also  named in the suit.
