Read the applicable statutes and provisions of the Florida Administrative Code. My guess is no. But I have never researched this matter, and that, of course, could not be done for free.

I doubt that you can do this legally. You would have to check into the local ordinances to find out if private individuals can do this, and I do not think it is possible to charge money for this.

Lucky that the dog is still alive. Most animals that bite are labeled vicious animals and put to sleep depending up the circumstances. Give her the dog back so this doesn't happen again on your watch, and take her magistrate court for the $ 114.00 if she doesn't pay you.

Generally, contracts are binding when they are entered into and there is no choice to rescind (i.e., undo) them. If you and the buyer agreed on a price, you received the money and turned over your dog, that contract is complete and binding. Based on your description, I don't see any legal argument for you to force the buyer to give the dog back to you. However, you can try...

Matthew Williams' answer
Several things. First, you may want to get your kittens somewhere else as this might not be worth the hassle. Second, consider having an attorney draft a demand letter. This is a simple letter on attorney letterhead indicating to the other party that he or she is in breach of your contract--and you probably do have a contract even if nothing is written down as contracts can be oral. The letter indicates a civil suit will be commenced, if the other party does not honor the agreement and...

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
Well, this is an interesting question for which you have not given enough facts. If you are within city limits, you might be prosecuted for discharging a firearm within the city limits. If you are not within city limits, you could probably be prosecuted for animal abuse. Really, the best thing to do will be to go speak with a local lawyer.
