I am looking of a dog that was left in my care

Customer Question

I am looking for custody of a dog that was left in my care by its owner in February. Owner didn't supply food, didn't pay vet bills, didn't pay for shelter, didn't come and get the dog when I asked her to. Today she wanted to come and get him. I told her I mo longer considered Lincoln to be her dog. She said I'll see you in court. Are there laws concerning ownership of the dog?

What were the circumstances of her leaving the dog in the first place? Was it a gift or were you supposed to look after the dog for length of time? If so, how long, and did the owner ask for the dog back at the end of this time, or wait longer - if so - how long?
Is there anything in writing or email or text message about this?
