My boyfriend ended our relationship and told me to move out without giving me any notice. I didn't even have time to get my dog, and now he wants to keep it just to hurt me more. What can I do to get my pet back?
People who believe that their animal is being wrongfully withheld can sue (replevin action) to try to get the animal returned. The police can also be contacted, although the police typically do not get involved in pet custody disputes between ex’s. I hope that you and your ex can work out a pet custody arrangement that considers the best interests of the dog.
