Can I get my dog back?


I gave my my dog away two years ago due to the fact that I was moving to a new building that did not allow dogs. Now my building where I was living is done being renovated and I moved back. I have been crazy sick for my dog since I got rid of him and I really really want him now that I have moved back to my building. I am never going to move again and plan to stay here til I get a house.


It would seem from your question that you no longer “own” the dog. When one adopts/purchases a companion animal, the commitment to that animal should be lifelong. It is very unfortunate that some landlords prohibit the keeping of pets, but people with pets need to make every effort to find pet friendly housing. I hope the dog is doing well in a forever home.
