I assume that the owner of the dog is your landlord. The lease should provide rules for how the yard is to be shared and, assuming the lease allows dogs, how sharing is to work with dogs. If it doesn't, and the dogs can't get along, you may have grounds to break the lease.
Both dogs have had medical issues and surgeries because of genetic defects. According to our Vet, because of the breeding. We found out about the breeder through her website (facebook) where there were several postings from other owners having issues and her falsifying information in regards to... Read more »
The issue is whether the breeder committed fraud and/or breached the contract. Genetic defects, alone, do not provide a ground for suit. Many purebreds have genetic defects, hence it's better to adopt a mutt. Falsified info, if justifiably relied on to your detriment, may constitute...Read more »
I have had my cat for 16 years. He's an indoor cat and only ventures out to the screened in porch on occasion but never goes outside the porch and does not come into contact with other cats or other animals. Well, maybe the occasional lizard or spider. He's been very healthy this entire... Read more »
My husband was just told today our dog might be a dad. This happened under the supervision of my in-laws. (Our dog is a purebred and theirs is not) what can I do to ensure responsibility so they aren’t taking advantage of their dogs pregnancy? I already know the pups or Mom won’t have proper...

I was walking into the dog park, but there's 2 gates and the first gate goes into a boxed area that you unleash your dog. I was told by the dog owner that he wanted to pick up his small dog before we proceeded into the dog park. I let him pick up the dog and when I opened the second gate... Read more »
Yes, you have a case against the dog owner for strict liability and negligence.

In order to claim a possessory lien on the horse, a security interest in the horse would need to have been created in the boarding contract. The only other way to get the horse would be to sue the owner, get a judgment, levy upon the horse, and then buy it at the execution sale.
Me and my emotional support animal has been deined housing. i have emails to show they asked me to fill out pet forms and then deined me after I would not fill them out. When someone has an emotional support animal or a service dog by law no one can make u fill out a pet form. Why because service... Read more »
One of your first mistakes was refusing to fill out the pet form. I don't know what questions were on that form, but I believe you were probably incorrectly claiming that it was against the law for them to ask you to fill it out. If you claim that the animal is an "emotional support...Read more »
Perhaps, but you didn't say what the agreement provided for. And, I don't know if it matters, but by "female dog owner", do you mean that the owner was female or the dog was female. Ditto re: the "male dog owner".
A man at the dog park who I don't know and don't believe is completely there has been harassing other peoples dogs.

I usually ask them not to and they stop however their is one individual who I have asked numerous times to keep his hands of my... Read more »
The wording on such a sign would not "release[ you] from liability", but it might be evidence that the injured person had assumed the risk of being injured by your dog. It's difficult to imagine how or why you would post a sign which would "hold [you] liable"; perhaps...Read more »
we broke up. I took the dog when I left our apartment because I didn't feel that he would care for the dog properly (he often left for 2 or three days at a time to go drinking with his buddies - hence the reason we broke up). I left the state for a couple months and stayed with my parents... Read more »
If you're not living with him, he can't abuse you any more. If he shows up on your property or space, call the police immediately and do not let him enter! If you're afraid the dog will be abused in his possession, keep the dog and stay away from this guy. You can block his...Read more »

It sounds like the dog is legally yours, whether you paid money, signed a contract, or not, or were given the dog as a gift. Verbal contracts of donative intent or verbal contracts conveying ownership are just as enforceable as written contracts.
You're confused by the language "not purchasing", and I can understand your confusion. From your brief description, it appears the intent of the agreement is that the pet is not being sold to you, but rather is given to you as a GIFT. It calls the adoption fee a...Read more »
