How do I reclaim two dogs back from an ex friend who is now

Resolved Question:

How do I reclaim two dogs back from an ex friend who is now living in a small caravan with three dogs
Her new partner has been known to have dogs in the past and when they got to big or took to much to look after had them put down
I am extremely worried about two of the dogs concerned and the lack of space they have
She has never paid for them but has up until reasently looked after them well
Do I stand a chance of getting them back

Was this written down? Have you reported this to the RSPCA?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This was a verbal agreement and no I haven't been to the rspca as yet
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
I would go to the RSPCA to see what they say about the condition.
Sadly because its a verbal agreement they could just deny and say it was a gift. However you could try and go to Court to get possession back.
You would need to complete form N208:

The claim form will be sent to the other side and they can defend the claim. The Court will set the matter down for a hearing and decide whether to make an order that you have the dogs back.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
