Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Did the friend make you aware of the "return if not satisfied" condition when they gave you the puppy?
Did you agree to this condition as part of accepting the puppy?
Ok, the problem here is that you didnt' convey to the person who got the puppy from you that there were conditions on them receiving it and if those conditions weren't fulfilled, they had to give it back.
So if you didn't put strings on the gift from you to the other person, then you can't get the puppy back and the person who gave it to you would only be able to try and sue you for the value of the puppy as damages.
