Legally adopting a dog from the previous owner

A mutual friend suggested me as a "forever home" for a dog who's owner had passed. I want to prevent the dog from being taken away from us by the original owner's son after having provided him a loving home and much needed medical examinations.

Can I have my dog returned?

I had a dog of which I named Puppy. Puppy had previously been snatched up by the pound and I paid for him to be released to me and have all of his shots taken care of. A few months later the same dog catcher went into my yard and took my dog and claimed he found my dog in the road. The dog catcher came because a neighbor called the pound because my small dog would sneak through the gate to see her pit bull in heat. The neighbor did not even notify me before calling the pound.

My niece left her dog with me while she was ill and wants her dog back after I cared for it for a year

My niece was ill last year in March 2017 and she asked if I would take care of her dog until she was well and I said yes. She came and picked up the dog from my house in April 2017. The very next day she brought the dog back and said I just cant handle this dog and left it at my house. Now after a year of caring for the dog, and trips to the vet and groomer, she wants the dog back.
