Dog Laws & Legislation > Finding Rudy
Rudy

Don't let- anything come- between you

Can't go into details right now but I can honestly say I feel closer to getting Rudy back. Made a few phone calls and sent some emails. I've also ran into people whose dogs were stolen and even though it
s been a few months or year in some cases they refuse to stop looking. A Bassett hound who had been separated from her owner for 10 years was reunited not too long ago, and she remembered him and everything. Stories like that give me hope and prove you CAN come home again!

"Let me go home! I'm just too far from where you are, I got to go home. Oh I miss you, you know." "It'll all be all right, I'll be home tonight. I'm coming back home!" lyrics from 'Home' by Michael Buble.

I get what you're saying and you're all entitled to your opinions.

Nothing wrong with that but I've made up my mind.

Have a nice day.

Like I've said before I haven't waited a year to anything I've printed flyers and did pretty much everything I can do legally possible for a while. Court is the final step.

I've been so heartbroken and have had graphic nightmares for months and am ready for this to be over.

I miss my dog and I know she misses me too.


The people who adopted her have NOTHING to do with this, other than that they have her.

This whole case is between the shelter and my family, that's all.

Knowing my dog if she saw me right now she'd run up to me and never look back.


I have no doubt in my mind I'll get her back.

Many people have gone to court to get their pets back and won.

Here's one case where an owner tried to get her dog back from a shelter and in the end she did!

Bill Smith giving dog back to owner.

I have to agree with this owner's statement and I quote:

"I've learned my mistake but I don't think it should cost me my dog."

If this was your dog,what would you do?

Actually there's more to it than that but I can't go into details since the only way I can get my dog back is via legal action.

The only paperwork I know of that was given was information on my dog's behavior, what she eats, that sort of thing.

I've asked for that several times and nobody will give me a copy. They know who my dog was adopted out to but haven't given a name.

Pretty much everyone I've talked to about my case including another rescue said I should have gotten a copy. The lawyer I spoke to earlier this month told me I've done the right thing so far.

It took one dog owner in Oregon a year to get his dog back, so I see my case as no different.

Just example of how things take time:

In 2006, a journalist did an investigation on a pet store in Miami that was selling sick puppies. After several complaints from customers who all had bought dogs from this store and airing the report on TV, the state D.A. got involved. It took time but the store owners were charged with unfair trade and deceptive business transactions. In 2008 they filed for bankruptcy.

I'm not giving up, I've come to far not to.

I have my dog's registration to prove she's mine.

Also, according to what I've read regarding pet law including cases involving the return of a pet, it would take a court order for the shelter or microchip company to release the name of whoever adopted the dog or cat.

Here's something that might clear up the boarding question:

Generally, when an animal is taken in by a rescue group during a crisis situation, the owner of the animal retains ownership and the rescue group would not legally be able to withhold the animal from the owner. However, a person’s right to animals may be dependent on written adoption/sale contracts.

If there is a written contract which details the sale/adoption or boarding arrangement, that would be reviewed by the court. If not, the court would likely consider other evidence of the agreement between the parties to determine if ownership transferred or if the arrangement was intended to be temporary boarding.


I had to wait before I could talk to a lawyer, getting an appointment and other legal work takes time. I didn't sit around and wait.

I think you missed something the shelter didn't give me ANY paperwork regarding my dog, I've asked for it over and over and nobody gave me a copy. Because of that, I believe something's not right and forgery was involved.

I love my dog and am determined to get her back.

Sorry for not posting in a long time.


I went down to legal aid a few days ago and was able to talk with a different lawyer. This one said a case like mine would normally be handled by a district court. So, small claims wouldn't work. She also told me where I can get additional legal help, so that made a difference.

In the meantime I plan to post more flyers in different places and try some of the things she recommended.

I also found some information regarding pet law that could help my case.

Other than that, I feel one step closer.

I have no doubt in my mind I'll get my dog backhappy dance

Well, so far I feel one step closer to having Rudy back.

Got a call back from legal aid and got a recommendation to a self help legal center to get the forms I need including one for a demand which would lead to a subpena if nobody responds.

I also came across a photo taken outside at the shelter recently. The dog in the background seems to resemble Rudy in terms of anatomy, size and similar markings.

Granted the background is blurry but I can't help but think, who is that dog?

Came across this the other night. The owner did get the dog back but here's the story. It's just not right!

Yeah, I didn't know that many were involved either.

In Rudy's home state(Iowa) there's a lot of puppymills in Sioux county.

But Missouri and Pennsylvannia are said to have the highest numbers.

Dogs that are stolen and resold or flipped end up in places like this, which is sad.

Dog flippers pay little or nothing for the dogs they resell. Depending on the breed, they mark up the price.

But when the woman was given the direct order to return the dog she refused and was sued for theft, now she's in prison.

Prior to that she tried to find anything she could to make the guy look like he mistreated the dog but none of her claims were credible.

She was even given a 1 week extension to prove ownership and never did.

Thanks Ellie.

I plan to contact legal aid and animal control.


I did come across two people who might have my dog but confronting them about it wouldn't be the best idea.
