Default Autumn Springs Boxers, Florida Breeder

Are there any repercussions that can be taken against a breeder who offers no remedy when a puppy sold dies within four days of adoption?
I researched breeders throughout the state of Florida and was looking for a reputable breeder. At first Autumn Springs Boxers seemed respectable; I went to the breeders house on four occasions and found the premises messy and in disarray but puppies looked healthy. I purchased my puppy from Ken (breeder) for $1500, she became suddenly sick on the third day (anemic, lethargic etc.) I took her to the vet and she died 12 hours later from cardiac arrest. They tested her for viruses, bacteria, poisons etc. but everything came back negative leading me to believe it was congenital; I spent $2000 in emergency care. I contacted the breeder (Autumn Springs Boxers) and he advised since I did not take the new puppy to the vet within two days of purchase all remedies were void, so no puppy replacement, no anything and no sympathy whatsoever. Is there anyway to address this in the boxer community and are there other breeders out there who would have handled this differently?

A breeders contract cannot be less than what the law states.
Florida does have pet laws in place.
Here is a link that explains the law in Florida, under section (5) it says you have 14 days to have the pet examined by a veterinarian.
There are also links on the page for you contact someone to help you.

Sorry about your puppy
