Hi, Thank you. If it is normal practice to remove the dog and take it back into then this is what I would suggest you do immediately. In the mean time I would look at what assurance you gave to this family in terms of the dogs temperament? Did they ever suggest they were qualified to look after distressed animals? Have they actually made a claim against you? Kind regards AJ

Hi thank you. The key issue here is you cannot exclude liability for death or personal injury arising from negligence. Therefore if the dog has behaviour issues then in re homing the dog you would have to disclose these. The other issue is, is it possible the dog will now be classified as a dangerous dog? Have the previous owners made a complaint to the police for example?
