About a year ago, my mom had to let someone foster her dog due to my father becoming fatally ill. When she had the means and time to take her back, he refused to let her. She has even offered to pay him vet bills (if he's taken her) as well as a paying for her all over again. She has receipts... Read more »
You could certainly go to court over this and say that the dog (which is property in the eyes of the law) was and remains your mother's property. If the other person's defense is simply that she now wants to the dog, then the other person will loose. COntact a lawyer and get all the facts...Read more »
We agreed that he would take care of her a couple weeks and then I would come get her. My best friend, our 3 kids, and myself dropped him and our dog off. He reassured me that he would take good care of her and I ensured him we would stay in touch to check on her. I did call and we texted on... Read more »
I have read about having an exotic pet in the state of Alabama but what I'm confused about is that it specified breeds from outside of the state lines. Does that mean if I get a breed of fox that is native to Alabama it is legal to own as a pet?
It sounds like a bad idea to me. The Alabama Administrative Code contains regulations promulgated by various Alabama State entities.

If you can prove the pet is yours, and this is not a situation where you and another person lived together or something of that sort, the pet is your property. You own the pet against the "finder". You would file a suit for recovery of your property in District COurt. You need witnesses,...Read more »
I have been delivered a civil petition for Injunctive Relief, claiming that a dog that lives in my house has violated the protective covenants of dangerous activities and may be or become an annoyance or nuisance to other property owners in the subdivision. Allegations that she has... Read more »
Sounds like you've got a law suit on your hands. Sounds like the local municipality or your subdivision Property Owners Association is suing you. Just like any other dispute, there are two sides (at least) to every law suit. You will have your opportunity to give your side of the case at an...Read more »
There are many other dogs in the neighbor hood but they say its mine cause they have seen them in there yard before. Also my older dog has destroyed shoes from my neighbors yard but since than shes been tied up.
In Alabama "every dog gets one bite." But, if the crazy lady next door knows that her dog bites or has 'dangerous propensities' she might be liable for injuries caused by the dog. Obviously she needs to keep the dog on her own property. But she also needs to warn potential...Read more »
