Thank you. You have a few options. You can threaten to sue and to call the police. Then you can proceed on both fronts. Be sure to have records to confirm ownership. Practically having a lawyer call should help get this turned over on consent.

All I have in the form of documentation is a copy of the contract from the breeder when I bought her. I am tracking down the copy of the check I wrote for her. As for registration, I dont know about this. She has rabies tags, but Ihave no documentation. Advice?
Expert:  INFOLAWYER replied 5 years ago.
What you have is sufficient, but try to find the additional documentation to avoid a claim that he is a co owner or owner instead.
