Male dog holder does not have to be liable for mating

The district court (AG) Daun decided that the owner of a mixed breed dog does not have to be liable for unintentional mating of a mating pedigree dog by his male dog.

A mongrel male mated with a female in heat. Six mixed-breed puppies resulted from it. The owner of the non-pedigree puppies sued the owner of the male dog for damages. The court rejected the complaint. Reason? The owner could not hold his dog responsible for his instincts – to mate a female dog in heat.
