The Canine Conflict: A Tale of Adoption, Demands, and Dilemmas 🐶🔥

In a world where pet adoption is usually a tale of love and compassion, this story takes a dramatic turn. A woman adopts a beagle from an elderly lady, only to face a barrage of demands and criticisms about how she's caring for the dog. When the original owner shows up at her door demanding the dog back, our adoptive 'paw-rent' presents her with an unexpected ultimatum - pay for three months' worth of pet boarding. As the social media storm rages, the question remains: who's really in the wrong here? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💭

NTA: Daughter wants dog back, but mom prefers new owner 🐶

gobsmacked247 | gobsmacked247

NTA, she willingly gave up her dog. Ridiculous to expect custody.

NotUntilTheFishJumps | NotUntilTheFishJumps

NTA, she does not get to micromanage you because you adopted her dog (at HER initiation) nor does she get to demand the dog back because you made some changes in name, food, routine, etc. Frankly she is not entitled to every minute detail of care, and things like blowing up your phone, showing up at your home, and enlisting family to blast you on social media are *harrassment and stalking*. I would actually use those words, and let them know that the next time they contact you, the police will be involved. 😱
