The Ultimate Doggy Dilemma: Who Deserves Bolt? 🐾

Our protagonist takes in Bolt, nursing him back to health while Tom struggles with unemployment and depression. After a month of caring for Bolt, she tries to contact Tom, but he ghosts her. When Tom finally shows up demanding Bolt back, she refuses, citing his inability to care for the dog. The police get involved, and they side with our protagonist, stating that Bolt is now legally her dog. She transfers ownership and gives Bolt a loving home, but at the cost of her friendship with Tom. Was she right to prioritize Bolt's well-being, or should she have returned him to his original owner? Let's see what the internet thinks of this heart-wrenching situation... 💔🐶
