Default ? About Breeders Contracts

This has been bugging me for a while. I was doing some research for my Irish Wolfhound and came across a site related the the Gentle Giant's rescue. (yes, I know, bad people, don't get a dog from there).
This site claims that the adoption contract from GG (and by extension all Adoption contracts) was basically a sham. That a dog is property and once the money and the dog change hands, the dog is the new owners to do what they wish with. The rescue no longer has any say.
What is the difference between that and a breeders contract? How can one mean nothing and the other be a legally binding contract. Or am I confused about what was being said?

Depends what you want a contract to do.. Monetary penalties are usually enforceable.. Removal of property is usually not.. So a contract stating if you do not neuter your new pet by 8 months I will take the dog back often won't fly if it goes to court.. but a penalty that's scary stiff will often be doable. Hopefully you make the penalty enough to scare someone into not doing something skeazy..

I knew Gentle Giants was bad news, but I didn't know they would slap you with a lawsuit if you didn't feed your dog Pedigree. WOW.

Yeah, I read all the stories on that link. I am horrified! I definitely think they are a mill, and that they breed all these animals (Since they are all unaltered and in the SAME room together). And its pretty strange that this rescues ALWAYS has puppies, and they have puppies in some pretty uncommon breeds that I KNOW wouldn't be going into rescues in large groups. Its ridiculous. And how all these animals are sick, and thin..and I was almost laughing at the fact they care so much about a dog eating pedigree. Those people are sickening!!
