Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My daughter died on 2nd April on 17th April her husband came for the funeral and brought her dog {Bischon Freise] to me and he has since gone to cyprus on business and intends to go again next month. My husband and I would love to keep her [Lilly] I feel he is treating her like a commodity to pass around when its convenient for him. She was not mentioned in my daughters will. Does that make him the owner??

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 3 years ago.

Thanks.

If you went to court then it is likely that the dog would be considered a joint asset of the marriage and so now belongs to him.

However much our dogs mean to us, they are property in law like any other.

The longer he leaves the dog with you though the greater the chance you might have of the court saying he abandoned the dog if he does sue you for possession.

Also, if you just refuse to hand her back then the onus would be upon him to sue and people who are not interested generally do not.

Can i clarify anything for you?

Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.


I see the expert had opted out, what else do you want to know?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have since been in touch with the kennel club and found an answer to my query. I said I did not wish to continue on line and as I am a pensioner hoped i would not be charged for not getting a very satisfactory result from my dealings with your website.


Thank you

Expert:  Ash replied 3 years ago.
You would need to contact customer services for that.

I am glad you have this resolved.
