Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump’s dog foundation is denying it caused a woman emotional distress after allegedly selling her a sick dog.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, the Bravo star is making moves to dismiss the case brought by a woman who adopted a dog from her West Hollywood store, Vanderpump Dogs.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, back in July, Kimberly Dillon sued the company accusing them of selling her a worm-infested puppy.
Dillon says she visit the reality star’s Vanderpump Dogs store in West Hollywood back in July 2019. She ended up buying a dachshund puppy named Cassie.
In the suit, Dillon said she was also told the puppy had shots and all necessary treatments. She also claims to have been provided with a false immunization record and a false certificate stating Cassie had received a deworming treatment.
After returning home, Dillion claims the dog started acting odd and rubbing his bottom across the floor. The suit says she then found Cassie was “expelling large live worms while defecating.”
The woman claims she reached out to Vanderpump Dogs but did not get a quick response. She rushed Cassie to the vet where the doctor found a serious worm infection.

To make matters worse, Dillion claims she became sick and started expelling “live worms and eggs from her mouth, vagina and anus." Her doctor diagnosed her with intestinal parasites.
She is suing Vanderpump Dogs for negligence and fraud.
In a newly filed response, Vanderpump Dogs denies all allegations of wrongdoing and is moving to dismiss the suit. The company accuses Dillon of failing to “exercise reasonable care and diligence to avoid loss and to minimize damages.”
The Bravo star’s business even accuses Dillon of breaching the contract. “Plaintiff unlawful, immoral, careless, negligent and other wrongful conduct, Plaintiff should be barred from recovering against this answering Defendant,” the docs read.
Vanderpump Dog Foundation also denies committing fraud in the transaction. The case is still pending.
The legal mess is being fought as the former reality star is facing heat — and being labeled “greedy” —for opposing raising the minimum wage in West Hollywood.
