How can I get dog back from long-term pet sitter?

Q:

A friend agreed verbally to watch my dog while I was out of town for 4 months. Now that I've returned home she does not want to give me my dog back. Is there anything l can do?

A:

Individuals who believe that their animals are being wrongfully withheld can commence a civil lawsuit to try to get the animals returned (replevin action). People can also contact the police (although the police may not get involved unless they believe a criminal law has been violated, such as pet theft).
