Can I get my dog back?

I rehomed my puppy about a week and a half ago but have had a change of mind. Is it possible for me to get him back? He is chipped under my name.

Inheritance of a dog

Hi! My question is to confirm what happens to my dog if I die without a signed will in place. I am not married, so I believe my parents will take ownership of all my assets/belongings. Some legal articles online state that a pet is treated like the rest of the deceased's property, which means my dog will also go to my parents by default. Can you confirm this, please?

My dog ran away, a year later we found him, but she won’t give him back.

A year ago, my dog got out of the yard while I was recovering from an accident where I lost my child. We searched for him but heard nothing. A year later, my dog groomer sent me a picture of him; someone had brought him in to get groomed. She informed the lady that she knows the owner and gave her my contact info. However, the lady did not contact me. The groomer provided me with her info, and I've been trying to contact her, but she will not respond. How can I get my dog back?

My boyfriend and I joined homes last May and we both have dogs. He passed away in November now his parents are trying to take the dog. What can I do? I have had this dog for 10 months, during which time I have been caring for and loving her, as well as paying for all of her expenses.

Fostered for 8 months.

I have been fostering 2 dogs for 9 months, I had to reach out and ask to get them re-fostered because it was just too much with 4 dogs. After giving one back we noticed we could handle 3 just ok so I asked to adopt the one left with me. The rescue refused and said it was promised as a foster to another person. I took care of these dogs for 9 months and offered to adopt, is there anything I can legally do? The organization also failed to provide any supplies during the entire time and they have been difficult to work with.
