Thread: Lucky to have Little Lucky

    Default Re: Lucky to have Little Lucky

    So Lucky has began to do a lot better, all the missing patches of hair have grown back in and the doctor has given him a clean bill of health. Today my brother called me and told me the lady wants lucky back but I do not know what the law would have to say in type of case. I have no paperwork stating that she sold us the dog but she said that she has seeked help and is doing a lot better than she was a few weeks ago (thus the reason for wanting lucky back). She told my brother that she will refund him the money he paid her. I really don't think money is an issue here, this lady has no means of supporting this dog, she lives in a 1 bedroom in NYC with no kitchen, just 1 bedroom and she almost killed lucky because she did not have the finances to get the proper vaccinations or medical help lucky needed. At the moment I have no idea what to do because she can report him lost or stolen. However we do have a witness who was there when we bought the dog. Also our vet is prepared to stand witness to the type of health lucky was in when we brought him to the vet. I feel bad for lucky I do not want to see him live with this lady. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. thank you

    Erm, we live in a 1 bedroom in nyc (manhattan) and I can assure you, most of us, take amazing care of our dogs.

    With that said (had to get it out, my NY pride was hurt), you have vet bills proving you've taken care of him all this time. I would also get a dog license for him immediately if you haven't done so already.
    Between the license and bills showing you've been supporting him, I think you'll be ok. Besides, there's really not much she can do since she did sell him.

    You bought the dog, you paid for the dog, you have witness to that fact. Your vet is witness to the condition of the dog, when you brought him in to her. Lucky is YOUR dog, and too bad if she changed her mind. Too late. She has no legal standing. Lucky IS YOUR dog. He is LUCKY to BE your dog! Not to worry!

    I am sorry I knew someone would be offended by the NYC 1 bedroom apartment but her place is just 1 room nothing else but shares the bathroom and she has 2 cats and another small dog in this room. Besides aren't bulldogs the best apartment dogs lol my brother lives in a 1 bedroom but its an apartment this lady lives like she is in a hostel thanks for the reassurance though

    It's fine, not really offended- but still had to say something .
    Thing is, the rents here are crazy high- so many people just starting out, or students, usually share tiny apartments. They're mostly studios divided by french doors.

    Like @Manydogs said " Lucky is YOUR dog, and too bad if she changed her mind. Too late. She has no legal standing."

    I would tell her, she sold lucky to you, you have witnesses, he is registered to you, you have vet bills and office notes from your vet as to the condition lucky was in when you got him and the vet is willing to testify in court and she will have to get a lawyer and sue you to try get him back. That should take care of that. She obviously will not have to money to go against you and that should scare her if she thinks there could be charges brought for neglect.

    Hi, thank you for rescuing that sweet Baby, he is very Lucky that you came into his life. I agree with everyone that she doesn't have a right or a claim to him. She sold him to you, and you paid for him, and have taken care of his vet bills to fix his health issues that were caused by her neglect. Do you still have the Facebook page where she advertised that she was looking to re home him? You can print that off as well as proof that she was selling him. She doesn't deserve to get him back, and she shouldn't. He is definetley your baby now.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Agreed.

    These are the reasons you don't give the dog back -^^^^^^^^^^^ - Little guy is probably tied up all day hence the issues with the collar burn or other injuries to his neck and him cowering if someone tries to pet him or lifts their hand is the huge tell that the dog gets hit on the regular. Her 'seeking help' doesn't cut it. IMO

    Good for you taking him in...and please do not give him back - poor thing

    Have a great day!

    Bless you for taking him in and getting him healthy. Lucky indeed. As for her wanting him back...I think that threat of telling her she'll have to sue you to get him back will be enough for her to back off. Good luck to you & Lucky.
