My friend is very ill and asked me to take her dog. I have a farm and love dogs so she knew he would be well taken care of. I got his microchip registered and took him to the vet. The place she adopted it from is now contacting me saying it's their dog and she signed a contract, like we all do... View More
What you describe is a standard term in animal adoption contracts. Why don’t you contact the shelter and see if you can work something out with them? They might be willing to accept your application and let you keep the dog.
I always tie him down to one of my bed corner with a leash. As far I know there's no law in Louisville ky that prohibit that. But was recently warned that it could consider animal cruelty. Is that true?
I live in an apartment and there is a noise ordinance about dogs barking excessively however no one with the authority to address this issue will respond.

I got caught for not license my dog, now I want to rehome my dog, what do i need from the person who's taking my dog so i can prove to the court that i dont have the dog anymore, dont charge me for not license my dog anymore.
Was unsuccessful in this attempt, if the owners showed up in July, after we have about $1000 in the dog, what are the chances that we will lose the case in court of keeping her? She is microchipped and has her up to date rabies
The dog catcher in my county says the shelter is at max capacity & he can't come and get it until the shelter has space, I don't have a lot of time to wait for this issue to be resolved, this stray is upsetting my own dogs.
