if the contract is silent as to the remedies if there is a breach, then you would need to sue the adopter and ask the Judge to order the return of the dog. You are asking for the court for specific performance and would need to show that the adopted breached the contract and needs to return the dog, as a result. You can not use self help and just take the dog and unless they are willing to be reasonable and try and work this out, you may have to sue them to recover the dog.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
