My brother isn’t giving me my dog back, what can I do?
Q:Hi, I had a labrador puppy from 8 weeks old, she is now 15 months old. Last week my brother and I agreed he would look after her for a week so I can get my garden tidied up and not lock her inside all the time. I asked so politely yesterday for her to come home and he has told me she is not my dog anymore and he is not giving her up. I’ve begged and begged for her to come home with me but he just isn’t allowing me to have my dog back. I need help as I don’t know what to do!!

A:People who believe that their animals are being unlawfully withheld can sue for the return of the animal. The police can also be contacted.
