Chyna Takes Dog Breeder Co-Op to ‘Court’

Reality star and former wrestler says Chihuahua breeder took $4,000 but didn’t deliver a dog.

Reality star and former professional wrestler Chyna is involved in another televised fight – this time on “Christina’s Court,” where she faces off with a web-based Chihuahua co-op that she says took her money but didn’t deliver a dog.

Chyna told TMZ that she paid $4,000 for a Chihuahua puppy in April to Phoenix, Ariz.-based But when the dog never arrived, Chyna took the site to TV judge show “Christina’s Court” – and won.

Catherine Knell, owner of, claims the “kangaroo” court was rigged against her from the start.

“We have sold several other puppies to Chynna [sic] with no problem,” Knell said in a statement. “Her most recent order was cancelled after our co-breeder wanted more for the puppy once he found out it was going to Chynna. Because we’re a co-op, each breeder has an individual responsibility to provide delivery of their pups.

“We agreed to appear with her on ‘Christina’s Court’ to resolve this issue and believed that Chynna was a friend,” Knell continued. “That court episode turned out to be an ode to Chynna with video clips and photos from her various ventures…We quickly found out that Christina merely wanted to turn the event into a lovefest for Chynna and had no intention of giving us a fair hearing.”

The episode airs Nov. 19, 2007.

I bought a chihuahua from them, was charged a ridiculous price due to Cathrine saying the dog would weigh no more then 3 lbs guaranted. well, my dog weighs 11 lbs. I love my dog and would never get rid of him cause his weight, but once again they ripped someone else off.

I've watched some of her episodes. Every time she has a celebrity on her show they will have a video of their life and always wins the case rather right or wrong.I quit watching.
