my sister and I had a verbal agreement where I would become the final owner of her two dogs (she was not able to home them and didn't want them to be with my grandmother) i promised she could take them camping but they were becoming my children's emotional support animals so I would not...

Theoretically, you would have a claim against your sister for the tort of conversion. You could have an attorney send a demand under OS 20.080 for a return of the dog and give her 30 days to return the dog without incurring attorney fees or costs. Then you could file a lawsuit for injunctive...Read more »
My roommate is afraid of my 11 month old puppy who is mouthy but non-aggressive and my roommate is afraid of him. He threatened to kill the dog and told me he has guns in the house. The landlord is refusing to do anything. Is this considered outrageous in the extreme? I feel very threatened and... Read more »
Maybe it would be outrageous; maybe not. Regardless, only a landlord can try to evict a tenant for outrageous acts, NOT a co-tenant. If you cannot work it out with your roommate, then your option is to terminate your tenancy and move. Do note that you need to provide your landlord with proper...Read more »
My dog pushed his way under the fence a second time she took her dog to the vet he got 1 staple and wants us to pay the bill. I'm I leagaly bind to? They interagate my dog with broom sticks throwing appels using sticks to push at him where do I stand with this situation?
If I am understanding the facts correctly, your dog trespassed onto the neighbor's property. You stated this was the 2nd time your dog had done this, so an argument could be made that you knew there was a risk of your dog trespassing and the issues should have been previously addressed, by...Read more »
It wouldn’t be right or legal for him to do so. But keep an eye on your cat because if your neighbor catches him and takes him to the pound, there will be little you can do to get him back, especially if he doesn’t have a collar or a microchip.
If the person who has your dog is the person who is restrained from contacting you, you will have to get in Touch with the prosecutor or your victim’s advocate To see if you can do a civil assist to get your dog back.
I would look to your rental agreement to see if the issue of dog neutering is addressed. Landlords can have a policy of no dogs or only neutered dogs. If your dog is a service dog, then the landlord will need to accommodate your disability. I am not sure if the neutered status of your dog affects...Read more »
A cat showed up at my house and I am trying in good faith to find her owners (if any) before I adopt her as my own. I took her to the vet after 3 days to scan for a chip (none), check for sterilization (spayed but not ear tipped), and check her overall health. I have checked any/all social media... Read more »
In Colorado, the law on abandoned property is 5 years. You would have to look up the abandoned property law in OR, because animals are considered property there, too. That said, you are doing the right things to protect your ownership claim if the true owner does ever pop up.
I allowed a 24 hour visit he's kept her now for 5 days threatening me if I call the cops, telling me I'm not fit cause I changed her name, she was on medication and because of this she's missing antibiotics. I don't know what to do he did not purchase her and we weren't together when I got her
May, 2020: Our neighbor had people visiting, and they were about to leave, and my dog heard them talking loudly and ran outside. We ran outside to get her and this woman told me that my dog had bitten her. She showed me her bite mark, and it was not bleeding; it looked like teeth marks in the skin,... Read more »
She is partially right because the dog could be considered an attractive nuisance for a child who may not appreciate the danger. She, on the other hand, is an adult. Arguably, she trespassed on your property when she should have been aware of the danger and was bitten. If she is requesting...Read more »
I assume your dog was on your property and not your neighbor's property. You won't be able to sue your neighbor unless you could prove your neighbor was somehow negligent or had trespassed. You could sue your neighbor's friend for negligence and trespass. Under trespass theory,...Read more »
That fact that a dog is chipped, is a piece of evidence for ownership among other potential evidence. For instance, there may be other evidence of ownership, such as a bill of sale, vet bills paid, aka registration etcetera. Obviously, if you come across an animal...Read more »
Residential property. In the rental agreement it doesn’t clearly say “no pets.” All it states is “keeping on the premises an unauthorized pet capable of causing damage to persons or property, as described in ORS 90.405^5”
The shelter adopted out My ferrets within a week and they neutered my registered service dog in 78 hours. the cops has recorded body cam audio of the promise of two weeks and also the dash cam was on and I believe it caught it also and I had a witness in the police car with me that heard them say...

IF this happened in Oregon, when an animal is found and held in a shelter and when the owner is known the Shelter are required to give you notice 5 days before adoption, if you do not show after five days the animals can be adopted out.
If you service dog was neutered in Oregon, you may...Read more »
My cps worker decided to give him away and It wasnt his dog to give away and i was not consulted about this before it happened, is there any legal action I can take. Or anyway I can try to get him back, plz this dog means the world to me
There isn't an easy answer that someone can give you on the internet after just reading a short statement. On the one hand, if you have proof of ownership you might still have rights. On the other hand if you abandoned your dog that might amount to animal neglect and your family or your CPS...Read more »
There were no witnesses to the event and the injury required many stitches but not severe. Dog owners are cooperating and are willing to help financially but with in reason. Dog has never bitten or shown signs of aggression. Many strangers visit property daily. Victim has a history of seeking... Read more »
If this happened in Oregon, it is important that you ask your question ONLY to an Oregon personal injury lawyer. You should not accept any answer from a lawyer who is not a licensed Oregon lawyer. Reason: dog bite laws are very different in each State. I know the answer to your question for New...Read more »
My son's prescribed therapy dog pushed past him at the front door to say hi to an 11 year old boy who tried to hit her(dog) with a stick so she bit him. First offence ever with the dog. Can the landlord evict us or demand we get rid of a prescribed therapy dog over a first offence?
Assuming the landlord follows the correct technical procedures (serves a legally compliant 24 hour notice (or longer) and serves it properly, absolutely they can terminate your tenancy and evict if/when (in reality, no one actually gets out within 24 hours) you fail to vacate. As long as you are...Read more »
I got approved for an apartment and while discussing my pet, my future landlord said that everyone has an emotional support animal and that I have still have to pay an extra $25 regardless if I have a letter or not.
