How do I get my dog back?


I left my dog in another state with some of my family. I gave them everything he needed. Now that I am able to go back and get the dog they won't give him back. If I can't get my dog back, can I have him put down? What should I do they are trying to sell my dog?


It is unclear how long the dog has been with your family and what arrangements you made with your family when you left the dog with them. Animal custody disputes that cannot be resolved amicably are sometimes litigated in court. Frankly, it is alarming that you are inquiring about having the dog killed. I hope that the dog gets a humane home.
