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. He continues to touch peoples dogs without their permission and will chase after them. More than one person has asked him to stop is there anything we can do? Call the cops?... Read more »

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 »
This happened during a walk that they had a plank that was loose on their fence and they moved it to the side, allowing a hole large enough for their dog to escape out of. An hour or so later they fixed the fence so is that negligible on their part since it was easily fixed with the plank there and... Read more »
Yes, but generally your damages are limited to the value of your dog or veterinary bills. You could also call animal control and get this person charged with the crime and get restitution through the criminal
I currently live in Central Florida and due to extenuating circumstances, I had taken my dogs to Miami, where I owned a house with my soon to be ex. The verbal agreement was that as soon as the house sold and I could find a place to live I would pick the dogs. Well, he has sold the house refuses to... Read more »
Thank you Mr. Thorgaard! 1. If the man knew the dog was missing and made no attempt to return it, isn't that theft, assuming he saw the posted flyers, and received the email with a flyer sent to him. 2. After receiving an anonymous call telling me the man had the dog, I'm suspicious she... Read more »
I think what I was trying to suggest is that it is doubtful that she would be prosecuted because she can claim to be unaware of the posters, etc. The authorities would have to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that she knew the dog was yours. They may feel that proving that would be difficult.
