I actually know a couple who had it in their divorce decree who got custody
of the dog.  Maybe it is something that should be addressed there.  I don't
know that a dog license is a legally binding document to prove ownership.

I also immediately thought it was a legal issue.

Tell them to take it up with an attorney.  I wouldn't get in the middle of
that one! Lol

Hello all,

 

A couple in our town is splitting up and one of them came into the office to
make sure our records show that she is the owner of the dogs.

 

The typed portion of the license lists the man as owner,  over the years one
or the other has signed the license, the rabies vaccination certificate says
both their names on one and just hers on the other.

 

Do you know what she needs to do to establish legally that she is the owner
of the dogs?

 

Thanks,

Susan in Newbury
