I live in Pa. Me and my son purchased the dog 6 years ago. He promised I could see the dog and this has never happened because he won’t allow it. I want to know can I just take the dog since me and my son are the ones who purchased the dog? I’m really worried about my dog
I received a ticket in the mail telling me that I am in violation of Bridgeport, PA ordiance 2016-004 (ordinance 155-11). I have read it multiple times. I don't think this applies to me because the ordinance states that a dog/cat cant poop on public/private property and be left. It must be... View More

It’s not possible to answer your question definitively without knowing what the pet provisions say in your lease. I suppose it’s possible that it could provide that a tenant who acts negligently when walkia dog” could be bYour arguments are logical and sound, but that doesn’t mean your...View More

Contact the animal rescue league or any similar group in your county and see if they can intervene or help. Not sure why the police won't tell you where the dog is. Try the DA's office Victim Assistance Coordinator.
I was recently offered a job opportunity to be a K9 handler for airport security. I would be provided with paid training, as well as a trained dog that I would have to have live with me. My landlord has our pet limit to one dog and one cat, which we already have. If I take the job, does the fact... View More
I adopted a dog about 5 weeks ago from ACCT Philly. I was told he was 4 years old. I took him to the vet and the vet told me he is a senior dog (at least 8-10 years old). The shelter told his health is remarkable besides some abnormalities in his blood work from malnutrition. This has since been... View More
See what your lease says about changes. If your lease expired and you are on month to month, he can say they can't be at the property the following month. Under no circumstances hand him the lease--always hand people copies of documents, you retain the original.
Adults and kids keep entering my yard, either by jumping the fence or by entering the gates, without my permission and despite me telling them several times to stop doing it. I am worried that my dog will, at some point, take issue with strangers coming into the yard. I have me telling them on... View More
A neighbor continuously throws bones, grapes, and other harmful foods on the sidewalk. She’s been caught in the act and confronted so we know this is not by accident. She refuses to stop and local officials are not much help. She has a “no pooping” sign on her lawn so I am wondering if this... View More
For 4 months my next door neighbor has been letting their dog poop all over the neighborhood, my yard, neighbors yards and the street. I’ve seen this happen several times and have cleaned up about 50-60 piles in the last 4 month in my yard and the street in front of my driveway and mailbox. What... View More
I purchase a dog from a lancasterpuppies breeder, my puppy died within 2 weeks and she was euthanized for a sum of $1500. Is the breeder liable for the $1500 as well as my refund for my puppy? I have looked at the laws and I can't find anything specifically that says they are liable.
Did the breeder have some type of money back guarantee? Do you know what the puppy died of? Unless you know the cause of death, you can't say it was their problem. If the vet can give you a cause of death, and says it likely was present when the breeder sold you the pup, you can then make a...View More
They have THOUSANDS of my own personal savings that they have told me is completely 100% refundable. Not only that, but they have my baby puppy. I’ve been uninformed throughout this whole thing about anything and I just want my puppy and money. This whole thing is making me physically sick.
I asked my neighbor twice now to not come into my yard with his dog and he is still doing it. What can I do? I have no trespassing signs posted in my yard and his dog has even peed on those! He will walk his dog all in my yard and let’s him pee on everything even my car and where I grow vegetables.
If the HOA isn't going to do anything (which I'm surprised they're not - you might want to take the "squeaky wheel" approach), then the local municipality or county might have ordinances about breeding that she is in violation.
You can take them to court to sue for the (value of) the puppy of your choice, especially if the puppy came with breeding rights. Or, you can hire a local attorney to write a letter to try to get the pup of your choice - or face the lawsuit.
