My grandfather, who is currently in the hospital with health

My grandfather, who is currently in the hospital with health problems, just received word from his wife (my step-grandmother) of 26 years that she's divorcing him. He has little in the way of assets, visually impaired, cancer survivor and myriad other health issues.

My daughter went to a rehab facility out of the state where

My daughter went to a rehab facility out of the state where we live and left her dog in my care for an extended period of time. I then sent the dog to someone I know well who boards and trains dogs for a living. The dog has been with this person for a year now, with myself paying all the monthly boarding and miscellaneous bills. The dog is extremely happy . My question is : who at this point owns the dog? I don't feel my daughter should have him back and that he should remain where he is. I hope you can help! Thank you.
