I adopted a dog about 5 weeks ago from ACCT Philly. I was told he was 4 years old. I took him to the vet and the vet told me he is a senior dog (at least 8-10 years old). The shelter told his health is remarkable besides some abnormalities in his blood work from malnutrition. This has since been... Read more »
I was recently offered a job opportunity to be a K9 handler for airport security. I would be provided with paid training, as well as a trained dog that I would have to have live with me. My landlord has our pet limit to one dog and one cat, which we already have. If I take the job, does the fact... Read more »
See what your lease says about changes. If your lease expired and you are on month to month, he can say they can't be at the property the following month. Under no circumstances hand him the lease--always hand people copies of documents, you retain the original.
Adults and kids keep entering my yard, either by jumping the fence or by entering the gates, without my permission and despite me telling them several times to stop doing it. I am worried that my dog will, at some point, take issue with strangers coming into the yard. I have me telling them on... Read more »
A neighbor continuously throws bones, grapes, and other harmful foods on the sidewalk. She’s been caught in the act and confronted so we know this is not by accident. She refuses to stop and local officials are not much help. She has a “no pooping” sign on her lawn so I am wondering if this... Read more »
I purchase a dog from a lancasterpuppies breeder, my puppy died within 2 weeks and she was euthanized for a sum of $1500. Is the breeder liable for the $1500 as well as my refund for my puppy? I have looked at the laws and I can't find anything specifically that says they are liable.
Did the breeder have some type of money back guarantee? Do you know what the puppy died of? Unless you know the cause of death, you can't say it was their problem. If the vet can give you a cause of death, and says it likely was present when the breeder sold you the pup, you can then make a...Read more »
For 4 months my next door neighbor has been letting their dog poop all over the neighborhood, my yard, neighbors yards and the street. I’ve seen this happen several times and have cleaned up about 50-60 piles in the last 4 month in my yard and the street in front of my driveway and mailbox. What... Read more »
I asked my neighbor twice now to not come into my yard with his dog and he is still doing it. What can I do? I have no trespassing signs posted in my yard and his dog has even peed on those! He will walk his dog all in my yard and let’s him pee on everything even my car and where I grow vegetables.
They have THOUSANDS of my own personal savings that they have told me is completely 100% refundable. Not only that, but they have my baby puppy. I’ve been uninformed throughout this whole thing about anything and I just want my puppy and money. This whole thing is making me physically sick.
If the HOA isn't going to do anything (which I'm surprised they're not - you might want to take the "squeaky wheel" approach), then the local municipality or county might have ordinances about breeding that she is in violation.
You can take them to court to sue for the (value of) the puppy of your choice, especially if the puppy came with breeding rights. Or, you can hire a local attorney to write a letter to try to get the pup of your choice - or face the lawsuit.
A woman verbally surrendered her dog to me after abusing him, another woman offered and took him for vet care and after we established that he would have a permanent home with my grandmother after he recovers from vet care, she is now saying she is keeping him. My grandmother already met him, did a... Read more »
I must have accidentally left the door cracked and he got out while i was working in the yard. I didnt realize he was outside and he ran across the street and attacked my neigbors dog on the leash. It was not on either of our properties. Can they sue? I am willing to pay vet bills.
I was doing at most 35mph, I walked down the block and attempted to find the dog. I couldn’t find the dog so I left because there was no damage to my car and the dog appeared okay. I didn’t report it to anyone because there was no outside and because of the dog being gone. I’m located in PA... Read more »
Hit and run is when you are involved in a collision and there is damage to property or person. Sounds like you have no duty to report it. If you wish you can call up the police for the area where it happened. Make note of when you call. If they say no problem, then just say "thank you."
The person and the unleashed dog want us to pay the full vet bill but since the dog was on our property and was unleashed we don’t think we have to pay the full bill. We told them we are more than willing to pay half but they want us to pay the full 3000$. So what law for Kentucky says that we... Read more »
