The Walmart employee could possibly get in trouble with Walmart, but that wouldn't affect your criminal case. It looks like you have a valid defense unless you had reason to believe that the A/C might fail.

You should discuss that with the homeowner or real estate agent, since safety of both your pets and the prospective buyers and other persons coming into the house is of the greatest concern.

Yes, you can sue for replevin (return of personal property). If your ex simply took the dog from her boyfriend's dad, that wouldn't be breaking the law and probably wouldn't be prosecuted criminally, assuming she can prove it belongs to you.

I have already spoke with State Farm and have been informed that if my pitbull “goes off the rails” it will be fully covered in case of biting or anything and I will have my landlord added which leads me to can they still kick my dog out if I have them added and covered as well?
As I opined here before, this solution is the best one--as far as you should be concerned. However, before you sign up and pay for all the new liability coverage, you should discuss all of this with your landlord--because they may not want to accept your solution to their problem.

Animal control, in most jurisdictions, won't pick up pets unless they've been abused or neglected, not simply because someone calls and says, "I don't want my pets anymore." Don't know if that's the case here, but your first step is to contact animal control to ask the reason for the pick-up and...Read more »
