I allowed a 24 hour visit he's kept her now for 5 days threatening me if I call the cops, telling me I'm not fit cause I changed her name, she was on medication and because of this she's missing antibiotics. I don't know what to do he did not purchase her and we weren't together when I got her
May, 2020: Our neighbor had people visiting, and they were about to leave, and my dog heard them talking loudly and ran outside. We ran outside to get her and this woman told me that my dog had bitten her. She showed me her bite mark, and it was not bleeding; it looked like teeth marks in the skin,... Read more »
She is partially right because the dog could be considered an attractive nuisance for a child who may not appreciate the danger. She, on the other hand, is an adult. Arguably, she trespassed on your property when she should have been aware of the danger and was bitten. If she is requesting...Read more »
I assume your dog was on your property and not your neighbor's property. You won't be able to sue your neighbor unless you could prove your neighbor was somehow negligent or had trespassed. You could sue your neighbor's friend for negligence and trespass. Under trespass theory,...Read more »
That fact that a dog is chipped, is a piece of evidence for ownership among other potential evidence. For instance, there may be other evidence of ownership, such as a bill of sale, vet bills paid, aka registration etcetera. Obviously, if you come across an animal...Read more »
Residential property. In the rental agreement it doesn’t clearly say “no pets.” All it states is “keeping on the premises an unauthorized pet capable of causing damage to persons or property, as described in ORS 90.405^5”
The shelter adopted out My ferrets within a week and they neutered my registered service dog in 78 hours. the cops has recorded body cam audio of the promise of two weeks and also the dash cam was on and I believe it caught it also and I had a witness in the police car with me that heard them say...

IF this happened in Oregon, when an animal is found and held in a shelter and when the owner is known the Shelter are required to give you notice 5 days before adoption, if you do not show after five days the animals can be adopted out.
If you service dog was neutered in Oregon, you may...Read more »
My cps worker decided to give him away and It wasnt his dog to give away and i was not consulted about this before it happened, is there any legal action I can take. Or anyway I can try to get him back, plz this dog means the world to me
There isn't an easy answer that someone can give you on the internet after just reading a short statement. On the one hand, if you have proof of ownership you might still have rights. On the other hand if you abandoned your dog that might amount to animal neglect and your family or your CPS...Read more »
There were no witnesses to the event and the injury required many stitches but not severe. Dog owners are cooperating and are willing to help financially but with in reason. Dog has never bitten or shown signs of aggression. Many strangers visit property daily. Victim has a history of seeking... Read more »
If this happened in Oregon, it is important that you ask your question ONLY to an Oregon personal injury lawyer. You should not accept any answer from a lawyer who is not a licensed Oregon lawyer. Reason: dog bite laws are very different in each State. I know the answer to your question for New...Read more »
My son's prescribed therapy dog pushed past him at the front door to say hi to an 11 year old boy who tried to hit her(dog) with a stick so she bit him. First offence ever with the dog. Can the landlord evict us or demand we get rid of a prescribed therapy dog over a first offence?
Assuming the landlord follows the correct technical procedures (serves a legally compliant 24 hour notice (or longer) and serves it properly, absolutely they can terminate your tenancy and evict if/when (in reality, no one actually gets out within 24 hours) you fail to vacate. As long as you are...Read more »
I got approved for an apartment and while discussing my pet, my future landlord said that everyone has an emotional support animal and that I have still have to pay an extra $25 regardless if I have a letter or not.
I had previously gotten a notice because my dog got out one night and I didn't know. We'll my dogs collar broke while I was walking him and the lady in the office saw and she wrote me up again and lied saying he was running the whole apts for ten minutes which resulted in a 10 day... Read more »
Whether a landlord pursues other tenants for similar alleged lease violations is irrelevant to whether you were in violation. If you fight it in court, the landlord will have the burden of proving the first violation, that they served you a lawfully worded notice which was lawfully served, and...Read more »
All the papers and the chip inside of the dog state her name but I was too young for them to put my name down and I never thought it’d become a legal course taken by my mother to remove the dog from my home that I live in separately with my father. Is there anyway I can protect my dog from being... Read more »
Even though you are a minor you can own property. I can't say that in your situation the dog was given to you and became your property. There are probably two sides to the story. Typically pets are bought as family pets for the entire family even if the family says that the pet is for one...Read more »
There's 2 animals. Im pet sitting at my own home. They were gone several additional days without even a phone call to tell when they would REALLY be back. And they refuse to pay anything for my service when we clearly verbally agreed on a specific $ amount per day. Is it illegal to not allow... Read more »
I would give them their dogs back and sue them in small claims court for the verbal agreement you had for payment. If you don't they can sue you for conversion of their property - keeping their dogs when they are the rightful owner and if they get an attorney that knows how to use ORS 20.080...Read more »
A couple months ago I was moving into a friends house and her pitbull and rottweiler attacked me. They got my arm, upper and lower part, pretty good with their teeth and then also on both side of my hip and sliced 2 of my fingers open. Luckily my friend had USAA so I did not have to sue her to pay... Read more »
We had a friend watch our cat because we couldn't have him at the place we were living for the time being. We have all of his vet records in our name and he is chipped. We wanted our cat back but we were told he ran away weeks ago and we were also threatened not to come to these people's... Read more »
Are you saying that you don't believe the cat ran away, but rather that these people are keeping the cat and lying to you? If that is the case you can file a case for replevin which is the type of case that asks for the return of personal property. But I would first want you to have proof...Read more »
Wait did you sell the dog or did you gift him? What do you mean you signed a contract? One doesn't need a contract to gift something. If this was a sale and you have no proof that the animal is being mistreated you probably don't have any rights. If you do have proof or good reason to...Read more »
She was repeatedly told to make sure the door was closed, she also never cleaned their water. We've spent almost $2000 between flight changes back from Eurpoe, losing out on our last hotel nights that were already paid for, treats, motion sensor cameras, traps, and a professional pet tracker....

If you paid her for her services and she has assets, such as real property, it might be worth it to sue for breach of contract and negligence and collect damages. If she has no money, it would be a waste of time and money from a business perspective to go after her. There would have to be an...Read more »
Based upon the facts you have given, I do not believe she would prevail if she were to file a lawsuit and claim half the litter. It is your dog that you cared for while she was pregnant. Her dog trespassed on your dog without your permission. She can make whatever claims she wants, I do not...Read more »
