Will I win the small claim for full ownership on my dog? How much does it cost to do this? What are my rights for this dog?

If you can establish that the dog was actually given to you as a gift you should win should the matter go to court. You have a lot in your favor supporting that the dog was a gift, for example, the dog stayed with you and your fed and boarded it. You also purchased a license for the dog and presumably the license identified you as the owner. Whoever can prove the best facts should win this case. But really, and this is not legal advise, it is really a shame that a case like this would have to be determined by a court. I wish you the best of luck.

While this response may be used as a starting point it should not be relied upon until the matter is reviewed in detail by a licensed attorney who, after a review of all the facts and law, can give a more considered response.
