On January 15,2019 i was arrested at my home . Although i did not come out of my house for 6 &1/2 hours,i feel the city police used... Read more »
I don't see it. They are required to secure fugitives. When you didn't come out you put yourself in that classification. If the dog was never unleashed they likely used the least intrusive alternative. Contact the Fla. civil liberties union to see if they have a different take.
I have 2 young children with a 3rd on the way. These dogs are aggressive and have been known to bite. They have a fenced in back yard and let the dogs out of the front yard. Every time you drive down the road, you have to slam on your breaks to stop from hitting them. They have now began coming... Read more »
If it's truly a certified service dog that serves the girl, yes, she has the right to have such a dog at ANY weight. HOWEVER, service dogs are NEVER vicious! They are trained to be very tolerant of people and dogs. Therefore, sounds like there is fraud going on, and there should be a legally...Read more »
I purchased a German Shephard puppy in Feb 2018. The breeder has a one year health guarantee. At six months of age he was diagnosed with EPI, according to my vet it is hereditary. I told the breeder about the diagnosis, and she did not believe it, so she had me get him tested at one of her Vets.... Read more »
My boyfriends friend was staying here along with his dog, he never said he was moving out but started staying somewhere else and still has the key to our house. He agreed to get the dog and come feed him, we were never responsible for the dog however we did feed him. The dog was taking away for... Read more »
If the animal was present in your house, you were aware that it was starving, and you did nothing, yes you can be charged with animal neglect. What the owner said he would do doesn't matter as much as what the dog needed.
They don’t have money for food for this animal let alone vet bills for the puppies. They have her out at all times of the day in Florida heat and it stays under their porch until they’re home. No chip, no collar, no fence or dog house. I’ve been asked to foster it. My question is.. are there... Read more »
If they were to sue you, they could only recover their damages. For a mongrel, with little or no monetary value, damages would be next to nothing. And no, you can't just refuse to give the dog back, assuming they had agreed you could keep it for a while but not own it. So your best course of...Read more »
My boss gave me her 3 year old French bulldog, we didn’t sign any papers it was a verbal agreement she would be mine. I’ve taken her to the vet to get her rabies shot and will be going to lee county clerks office to get her tags, she is microchipped in my bosses name how do I switch that and... Read more »
had been given shots a week prior, and possibly she was having an allergic reaction to them because she was coughing and not acting herself and tired. I wound up staying up all night with her in the rocking chair because she just couldn’t settle down, There was certainly something not right with... Read more »
Recoup YOUR money? It was a gift. If you mean the veterinary expenses, not in excess of the value of the puppy (what your friend paid for it). Even then, you would have to prove that the giving of the shots was negligent. I don't think you have a case.
I texted her and let her know we were taking her to the Vet. She never respond. I called and left a msg to let her know what was going on. She didn't answer my call. I finally reached her boyfriend in FB and let him know Id been trying reach her and that the dog had to be put down due to advanced... Read more »
They have left their dog with my roommate for a month and a half but neither the roommate or dog owner have paid for anything, leaving me to pay for food and medicine. The owner wont come pick it up and my roommate wont get rid of it. Also when she gave the dog to us to watch, she neglected to get... Read more »
I have PTSD & per my VA doctors advisement I will be getting a service dog & I’m now on a waiting list. I could be on this list for 6 to 18 months. The property does allow pets which we have one, but there is a weight limit. I have no control over breed/size, although the standard is medium... Read more »
A service animal is not a pet by definition, so you cannot be evicted for getting a service animal. But you are correct, they can simply not renew you in Feb 2019; so simply don't say anything as you could be done with that lease too before 18 months hits and it a non-issue,
He took my dog. I had left my dog in the room locked with food and water. And when I returned the latch to the front door of the house was taken off and the door to the room where my dog was at was unlocked. Is that enough proof? There's no one else who has keys to the house. And the landlord is... Read more »
If you believe a crime has occurred, you should contact the police and report the theft. However, in a criminal case, the State must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The State may not be able to meet the burden of proof with these facts.
