Can someone buy back a dog I already paid for?

Q:

I bought a dog from someone I met on craigslist and now she wants to buy back the dog. Does she have the right to do so, or is this illegal?

A:

It is not illegal for an individual to offer to purchase an animal from an individual to whom he/she previously sold the animal. On the other hand, the person who purchased the animal is not usually under any legal obligation to sell/return the animal unless the sales agreement provided for the opportunity to re-purchase the animal.
