Sent me a text that said the dog would be staying with me. Since then I microchipped and licensed the dog and took him to the vet for his rabies vaccine and for a check up. He has now told me that he has a notarized letter saying the dog belongs to him because he paid for him and he wants him back... Read more »
In New York, if you go to Court, the judge will decide what is best for all concerned. This is very fact sensitive. The process can take some time and the dog will generally stay where it is until the case is resolved.
Are there curfews in place? Are there restrictions to the alley? Are there also other residences nearby? - bird watching could easily be construed as peeping and therefore not legal.

Its really a question of "who owns the dog" and not "where is the dog allowed. You need to determine who is the actual owner and that owner gets to decide what happens with the animal. Animals are chattel/property in GA.

You pose a very interesting question. The claims against your employer would be limited to workers' compensation. You can open a claim on the Ohio BWC website.
