Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
The police are not likely to be able to do much about this. They investigate crime. This is just a dispute over the ownership of a dog.
They won't prosecute her as she did pay for him.
If you want to recover him you will have to seek a possession order but that would cost roughly £500 ish if you didn't use representation.
Obviously she may defend on the basis that it was a lawful purchase of an abandoned dog.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You would have to sue at the civil courts.
you need to write to her first warning her of the risks.
But your son knows to whom he sold the dog?
A possession order for the delivery up of the dog.
