I took photos of a friends cows about 3 years ago. Last week discovered that she was trying to sell my images on Etsy. When I asked her not to she then proceeded to tell me I am not allowed to sell images of her cows, that she has never given me permission. Do I need a property release from her if... Read more »

Yes, you can legally sell the photographs. The practical enforcement of your copyrights, however, is a bit more complex. Recording a collection of a work of photographs with the U.S. Copyright Office should provide you with a useful tool to swiftly remove infringing articles from major online U.S.... Read more »
I have taken care of this dog in every aspect from food and loving him. He’s content and safe.

YES YOU CAN KEEP HIM: if you and your son agreed that you could.
NO YOU CANNOT KEEP HIM: if your son did not agree that you could.
It's as simple as that.
Idaho: We have lived here for 13 years with 1 consistent neighbor so we are almost certain it’s them. They called animal control for neglect. Saying our dog was outside all day in the sun, he was outside with us while we picked cherries from our tree. Our back yard gets maybe 3 hours of sun... Read more »

Cruelty to animals WAS a crime in Idaho, until the wealthy farmers and ranchers in Idaho prevailed upon the Idaho Legislature, which acquiesced, lost their moral compass and agreed to repeal the state law. Now, the only thing you prosecute under is the City Code against cruelty to animals. Boise... Read more »
They emailed me the papers, but I never had the dog registered in my own name. I have paid for rabies, kennel cough, and distemper shots. I have paid for grooming. I have paid for food, toys, treats, etc.
I made an agreement to give the dog back if they wanted her within 2 months. It's... Read more »

As an "addendum" to my earlier advice, let me say that you are WELL within your rights to sell a dog that you own, for as much money as you can get. Of course, without seeing the actual agreement, there is no way to determine what "conditions," you and the previous owners... Read more »

Before I can answer any question I first need to make sure that I am understanding the question.
1. You purchased a dog from previous owner?
2. You paid the dog's Vet bills, amounting to $2,000?
3. The previous owners now want the dog back?
4. You gave the... Read more »
Illegal and can they get in trouble?
answered on Aug 26, 2020
Yes they can. At a minimum your sale, if you purchased a puppy under false pretenses, will be voided and the seller will have to refund your money. At worst, the seller is possibly guilty of "fraud." Fraud is serious. It requires you to prove that the seller 1. Made a statement which... Read more »

If you bought the dog then no, the dog is yours. If he left the dog with you to take care of for a period of time, then yes, the dog is his and he can ask for it back any time. More information is needed to answer this question.
Him Away without my consent or anything. I have all the papers on him and proof. The person that has him is trying to charge me a fee for taking care of him and stuff. Is there anything I can do?

You were staying with your grandmother, right? You brought your $3,000 dog with you, right? You did something that caused your grandmother to 86 you, right? But you didn't take your dog. Now grandma is going to feed and water your dog FOR FREE? I don't see that happening. It was... Read more »
Over and they could not see any either. I took pictures but my phone got stolen. When I moved out I gave her a demand letter which she did not respond to. She never gave me a letter telling me why she was keeping my deposit. She also never kept my deposits in a separate account. Regarding my... Read more »

It is the security deposit that landlords are NOT entitled to keep. If your contract HAS a provision for a pet deposit, the landlord’s keeping it COULD BE a pitifully slow way for her to build her fortune, one pet deposit after another! But I doubt that. Instead I think that your dear pet MSY... Read more »

Your sister is full of it. You don't need to give her dog back, she abandoned it. 90 days, whether or not it is raining or snowing, is plenty of time to come get a dog that you claim you want back. So, if you don't want the dog, just take it to the pound and tell sister that I DARE HER... Read more »
I live in a trailer court that only allows a four foot chain link fence. It is accessible by anyone walking on the sidewalk. I am confident that someone opened my fence on purpose to allow my dogs to get out. While they were out, they killed a neighbors rabbits and although the neighbors... Read more »

Your defense is not good unfortunately. Short of getting a signed confession rom the person who lifted the bar that allowed the dogs to escape, I’m afraid that you’re absolutely 100% liable.
I was having a conversation with the dog's owner when the dog came up, wanting to be petted. Owning a dog, I naturally began to pet the dog while carrying on the conversation. The dog suddenly became aggressive and bit me. This is not the first time this dog has attacked someone. I am now... Read more »

If you are speaking to the owner you are not trespassing unless there's something I'm missing. If you knew the dog was dangerous you may be considered careless for putting your hand down, unless you felt that with the owner there the dog wouldn't do anything.
If the owner... Read more »
