Good Morning

The dog is yours and you have a right to get the dog back. Call the police and report them and then you have to lodge a claim in court to get orders to have the dog back.

This is your only option and any evidence you have to show that she was only looking after it and not a gift to her would assist. I suspect she will say you gave it to her as a gift. If there are no witnesses or evidence it is your word against hers for the court to decide.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
