Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Outside of her voluntarily returning the dog to you, the quickest thing you can do to get the dog back would be to file a small claims case for conversion of property.....and ask the judge to order her to return your dog to you immediately.
You're entitled to the immediate return of your dog because it's your property -- not hers. Conversion is when you entrust someone with possession of your property and they then won't return it.
You should be able to get a hearing on this within a few weeks -- if you/your lawyer requests an emergency hearing.
