There is no written paperwork...we have texts and she (through a mutual friend) gave the dog to us on a Sunday and brought the ownership papers to me personally on Tuesday. She then sent a text the next Sunday (week after giving away the dog) and asked for her back. I talked to her the next day and said no we would not give the dog back. She gave it away because she doesn't have time for it, is gone 12 hour days 4 days a week. So 1 text and 1 call and now we have a court order to show for Due Cause hearing!
The first text message, I sent to her, the night we picked-up the dog. I told her thank you for the dog....her response was "I love her, but am glad she will have a good home". Then, like I said, she dropped off all the paperwork to me 2 days later. The only other text from her was the one a week later...."Sorry but I am having anxiety over my dog. Do you think I could get her after work. Really sorry, thought I could part with her but I can't"
