She didn't ask if the dog could stay nothing. Just came home to her dog and everything else she owned gone. She's been over since and never says a word about the dog. I pay for food medicine everything for 9 months. She came over and while I was busy with the kids she took the dog. Now I... Read more »
You would have to sue her for ownership rights to be recognized. You can claim she abandoned the dog. However, unless she said or did anything that clearly expressed her wish to abandon, it will be an uphill battle. If you want to recover what you spent, you can sue her to be reimbursed for the...Read more »
Breeder insisted the dog was fine, but 2 Veternarian's both had the same diagnosis. Is the breeder liable to pay? I kept the puppy and it had surgery. It states that under NYS law, a "dealer" is held to the Pet Lemon Law, which states that reimbursement is an option for the... Read more »
The neighbor left for Texas for 5 months. I took her to my house because her other cat is very aggressive to the one I care for. Now she is bringing 2 ither cats to the house when she comes home. Can I sue or petition to keep her?
Me and my husband were homeless a year and a half ago and in the process of going to a shelter. We asked my husbands aunt to keep an eye on our dog until we got back on our feet. She agreed. And then she gave our dog away without informing us. She didn’t inform us until we showed up there and my... Read more »
You can possibly sue this person in replevin. I would talk to an animal attorney in NY, though, because in CO, once the dog is given to a good faith third party purchaser, the law protects that person and it is almost impossible to get the dog back.
A lady who filed it accused my friend of having her dog threatened her while walking pass my friend’s property with no fence. The dog is friendly and well behave. She also does not remember interacting with the accuser or anyone. So we are not sure here if we need a lawyer
I would highly recommend she get a lawyer when going to court. The consequences to your friend and her dog could be serious, so it's always best to speak to a lawyer to go over defenses and consequences prior to going to court.
It was a puppy that had fleas and worms in bald spots. It seemed neglected. Waited a few days and got no contact. It has been vaccinated and was rehomed. Before post I can put the post down I got a call. They admitted they let the puppy roam with cat’s outside, I guess this is why he was on the... Read more »
Mother states my 11 year old dog is hers and I will not be able to take the dog when I move out. The dog is the daugther of my grandmother's dog (purchaser is my mother).. She was given to my uncle at birth by my mother (I do not know if the dog was registered) and raised in his house for 8... Read more »
By itself, the texts are probably not enough, but with everything else you described, it would certainly help. If your uncle would be willing to testify in court that he gave the dog to you, that would be the most beneficial evidence to support your claim.
I submitted my ESA letter to my. building complex. My building has a no dog policy. The animal I would like to have as an emotional support animal is a dog. The building rejected my request because in my ESA letter my psychologist stated that any animal I choose would provide me emotional support.... Read more »
No, under the FHA your complex cannot deny you an ESA, regardless of what animal you choose. So, your psychologist was correct. If your dog is only an ESA and not a SERVICE DOG - then your dog CANNOT go with you anywhere. ESAs are only protected in housing under the FHA, not the ADA. ESAs can NOT...Read more »
Make sure you keep in contact with the pound so you don't lose your dog and follow their instructions on how to get him back once they give you instructions. If he bit people, you could be criminally charged.

The police in either state will consider this a consumer/civil matter not criminal. If you paid by credit card, call credit card company to dispute charge. You can make a complaint with Better Business Bureau, Attorney General’s office and Department of Consumer Affairs. If all else fails you can...Read more »
If you have made several attempts to contact the breeder without a response you can certainly call the Better Business Bureau or the Department of Consumer Affairs. If the $200 was on a credit card, you can dispute the charge with credit card company.
it to a vet in Brooklyn. The vet examined him and said it was a Siberian male but the chip on him wasn’t registered so they couldn’t find the owner. They posted on the hospital’s social media and I called all vets in the area where I found him but did not find any info regarding a lost cat. I... Read more »
Until she found a place where she could have her. In April, she went home to Seattle, and told me last week she is not coming back. What do I need to do to get the vet bills in my name, etc? How long is it before the dog is considered abandoned?
So Ex best friend didn’t have place keep house so she ask me to take cate of it for couple day now she only gave me only 2 time dog food and now been whole year and couple month I had dog she haven’t gave me money for food or nothing and she ask for her dog back now what can I do to keep dog
You can demand reimbursement for the expenses of her dog if you want the money and sue her if she refuses. However, unless she agreed to give you the dog you would have to prove she abandoned it to get legal ownership.
