Does new owner have to relinquish dog if they change mind?


Can a person give her dog away to someone else,then a month later decide they want it back? Does the new owner have to relinquish the dog back after it was given to her?


Generally when a person gives his/her animal away, such person has no further rights to that animal unless there was an agreement stating otherwise.
