I got attached to my friend's father's dog. She has never been to the vet and has no papers. The dog is also attached to me. If I take her to the vet, without the father knowing, will she legally be mine, or will there be an issue?
There will be an issue! Taking someone else’s dog to a veterinarian does not change the dog’s ownership. I hope that you and your friend’s father can work out a pet custody arrangement that is in the best interests of the dog, including getting the dog necessary veterinary care.
