No, you cannot be charged a pet fee or pet cleaning fee for using a service animal. You are correct that the only fee that can be charged is for any damage caused by the service animal. You cannot be asked to remove your service animal unless it is out of control or is not housebroken. A service...Read more »
It is hard to understand what your issue is. If your daughter has moved out, then she no longer has a legal relationship with the landlord. If she was evicted because of false representations by the landlord, that is a different issue.
Yes, it is unlawful to evict, reject, or charge for a...Read more »

Well you actually seem to be complaining about someone who probably isn't even your lawyer anymore. I say this because the way you describe your legal situation, that first court-appointed lawyer probably has withdrawn as counsel in your case and he probably feels like it would be improper for...Read more »

They aren't legally just "abandoned," but under Texas Property Code Section 70.003, you have a lien on the dogs for the amount of the charges for their care, and can hold them until the charges are paid. To be able to sell them, you must comply with Section 70.005, and give notice...Read more »
I foster (now used to foster) for a 501c3 dog rescue group. A dog was posted that needed a foster and I went and picked up from the ex-owner that was surrendering her. HOWEVER, the surrender form was never signed. The rescue wanted to give it to another foster that I did not believe it was the best... Read more »
It depends on the terms of the agreement, but without a written agreement that gives you a security interest in the dog to secure payment, you can't. Your only remedy would be to sue in the Justice of the Peace court for the unpaid balance.
While giving the dog away was wrong, apparently this person has had the dog since 2009 - 12 years, or most of the dog's life. Get a divorce or don't but I think the time for arguing about who has the dog has long passed.
I paid full price for a puppy. I bought it as a pet with the intention of breeding. When I took her for the first vet appointment I learned of a disability and my vet said she shouldn’t breed. I asked the breeder for a refund and she refused. She said I could return the puppy and be on a waiting... Read more »
The question is was it the type of deformation that a breeder should have been able to spot--not all such deformations are able to be detected without specialized knowledge. As the person claiming, it's on you to show through expert testimony that the breeder had to have known about that....Read more »

She can sue you for whatever she thinks you owe her, and you can file a counterclaim for what you think she owes, and then a judge can sort it all out. You could hire a civil attorney to increase the chances that you'll win but it would probably be faster, cheaper, and less heart-wrenching to...Read more »
This sounds like such an unusual and strange thing to do that I feel certain there is more to this story. However, on the facts stated, you have no damages. The fur will grow back. Although it would be an assault on a person, animals are property.
Presumably this kind of problem is not addressed in your deed restrictions - if there is, that will govern. If not, there's a legal process that has to be followed to have an animal declared dangerous, and it will require notice to you and a court hearing.
1) give her your insurance information. She'll make a claim, and the insurance company will do their own investigation, and decide whether to pay the claim. Remember that you have a deductible amount that you'll be responsible for before the insurance company...Read more »

You could try a small claims case to have the court declare ownership of the dog. Gather your evidence and talk to the clerk of the Justice of the Peace court in the precinct where your ex-friend lives.
