1 Answer | Asked in Animal / Dog Law for Kentucky on
Answered on Apr 6, 2019
Timothy Denison's answer
Do you have somewhere safe you can keep the dog that is not at your house? If so, you should move him there for safekeeping and so no one can take him from you until the ownership is established. I sincerely doubt that they will get a warrant, but if they do, the dog won’t be there. Don’t give them any information snd don’t talk to them about anything. Call Martha at my office and schedule an appointment on Monday.
