You have two choices: 1) give the dog back, or 2) don't give the dog back. If you don't, it is unlikely you'll be sued for the dog, because the cost of filing the suit almost certainly exceeds the value of the dog. In the event that there is a suit, the previous owner will have...Read more »
My boyfriend has had his dog for 6 or 7 years and got her through humane society but under his friends name. He no longer has contact with that friend and doesn’t have any papers for the dog. He wants to get papers for her.
Sorry, no matter how old you are, your parents get to make the rules about what they will allow in their house. If they don't want the puppy, I suggest you arrange another place to stay. No, they shouldn't give away your property, but if you're living at their house, you're...Read more »
Also has been scratching at the door for almost 6 hours now. Any other day, they don't care about her. I feed her and water her and pick the ticks off her. I bring her inside when its snowing and raining and super cold or super hot and she just usually roams free. Is there anything I can do?
My dog somehow disappeared from the yard 3 days ago and never returned which is very unlikely. She recently just had a litter of puppies who are not completely weened off and depends on her for feeding. Word of mouth makes us strongly believe we know where she is being housed. If we wanted the... Read more »

Sorry, even though we love them and treat them as children, dogs are property, and it sound like this one belongs to both of you, which means that neither of you can take the dog and hide it from the other.
Realistically, if you can't work out some joint arrangement, let her have the...Read more »

My ex girlfriend is suing me for my dogs. 1 I got from my boss when she was living in another state. The other I purchased from a friend for $200. I’ve paid 65-90% of the bills for them. She did put her name on the vet bills eventually and would watch the dogs when I was out of town for work. She... Read more »
The judge will look at the evidence and decide who they think is most credible. If the dogs have been together, it's unlikely that they'd be separated, especially if the evidence of who has been caring for them is the same.
You probably have records of what you've paid,...Read more »

You will be arrested and taken to jail if a law enforcement officer believes you committed a crime. In some situations, the officer must first get an arrest warrant by convincing a judge that there is "probable cause" to believe you committed a crime, but any officer worth his salt...Read more »
I didn't show because I tried to call their vet and they got ugly and said don't contact their vet again. They text me and won't tell me who they are. I feel harassed don't they have to show me proof where they paid to see what I may owe them?
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. From the description, it isn't fully clear what happened, but in terms of the proof you ask about, if they are suing, they would likely need to present that in the discovery phase of any lawsuit. Good luck...Read more »
