Hayden Panettiere has some serious doggy drama!
On Thursday, it was revealed that the Nashville star is being sued by a dog sitter, named Tia Brooks, who claims the blonde beauty owes more than $8,500 in unpaid services. Uh oh!
But don't get too concerned for Miz Panettiere as she has since clapped back by accusing the pet professional of grossly over billing her — even after she gave away the pups. Confused? Don't worry we'll break down the drama for you!

According to TMZ, Hayden rescued two dogs, a Rottweiler/Lab mix named Zander and a Lab/Pit Bull mix named Xena. However, it seems the 26-year-old didn't have any intention to keep the dogs as she hired Tia to take care of the animals for $30 a day until they could find a good home.
Here's where things get messy, Hayden claims Miz Brooks put an ad on Craigslist and found a home placement for the pooches last month BUT continued to send the mother of one a bill. Tia's since disputed these claims. In a letter from Hayden's lawyer Marty Singer, it's been noted that Brooks has been caring for the animals for six years and has charged a total of $119,335.88. WHAT?
Tia defends the bill became so high because of a combination of the daily fee plus other pet extras — including dog bones, tick control, dog beds, etc. Not to mention, one of the animals supposedly got very ill and racked up quite the vet bill. Oof!
It'll certainly be inneresting to see if Hayden actually has to pay out…
