A friend gave me her dog because it was not being properly cared for & she knew it needed a better home. Ive known, loved & helped care for this dog for over 2 years. It was 6 months ago that i took over ownership of the dog full time. Ive given him a great home, regular vet visits, feed him well & he has a great happy life, to which dozens of people attest.
Occasionally this friend pops up claiming he is not my dog, threatens to take him back, sue me, etc. But for the most part, they don't care about him or really want him back. I honestly don't understand the reasons behind her behavior. His past home was not a safe one for him, and ive no intention on letting him return there.
It would be no surprise for this person to show up & take the dog. She has already done it twice, thankfully she allowed me to pick him back up. But i feel stress & panic at the always looming threat of this happening again. Its just got to stop. I want to cut all ties to this person & be left in peace with my dog.
