Boston, MA asked in Animal / Dog Law for Massachusetts

Q: What should I do? I think I may be sued. Her dog is worth 1600 but she didn’t have a chip

Ok so I have this friend whom I’ve known for a while were not best friends but I’ve always been able to lend a helping hand, she asked me if I could watch her dog around late November, she didn’t have anywhere to put him at the time. Due to financial reasons, and living on college campus. I had said sur, she got to my house with the dog wasn’t trained completely, and she explained that she kinda had been hopping house to house with the dog. Anyways fast forward everything was fine till one day I was moving stuff in with my dad and my grandma and the dog ran out. Usually he comes back when you Whistle for him but he didn’t. I immediately let her know and my gated community office because they have cameras know. I also for the first two months when through great lengths to find him, flyers, shelters,etc. she also told me she has no chip for him after the fact. Fast forward again to now a detective finally involved 5 months after, she’s now seeming to act as if I did the worst To the dog
