- Q. I live in Kentucky and I am not clear about the laws here. A friend of mine got a dog for free
- A: You may or you may not have any rights. You providing care for her seems to indicate ownership. On the other hand, you believe that the dog belongs to your friend and you will bring the dog over to their house at their request. Payment of those bills could indicate you own the dog, but could also indicate a gift. Dogs are viewed as property in Kentucky, so you either own the dog or you do not. It really comes down to why your friend is leaving her with you? Does your friend refer to the dog as as his dog? It sounds like you are both in a tenuous spot if either of you try to claim ownership. It sounds like your friend doesn't really want a dog. You could refuse to give the dog back and make him file a small claims complaint. You could also call him and see if he is okay with you adopting the dog, since you are paying for his care. Unfortunately, the law views animals as property and your care or love for the dog will likely have little impact on any court's decision (If it got that far).
