Within s reasonable time is how long they have to claim. You cannot get it trouble for providing the dog food, water and shelter. If no one claims the dog, you can keep the dog or, if not an option, deliver the dog to a shelter or rescue for rehiring.
Turns out the shelter violated the mandatory hold law and let me adopt the stray puppy aftr 3 days at the shelter. I dont want to give it back he is part of the family now and my son adores him and calls him buddy. What do i legally have to do
You can keep the puppy or you can give the puppy back. You are fine either way. The shelter is the one with the problem if they adopted him out too soon. Although, you may want to consider the length of time the puppy had been with the prior owner, how the puppy got loose, and whether your son...Read more »

Constantly at our home. We continue to feed her but due to her being pregnant she won’t let my dogs eat. Are we allowed to get her fixed without our neighbors permission? She has no collar or identification.
We have purchased a companion dog from a show breeder in Kentucky (where we live). There was no written sales agreement. The breeder took care of microchipping and AKC registration. 3 days after we brought the dog home, the breeder informed us they have listed themselves as a second contact on the... Read more »
Probably no liability for you. Rescues and some breeders list themselves as a second contact when registering a microchip or a dog so there are more avenues of contact if the dog is lost. You have the dog....and possession is 9/10 of the law.
