Breaking up is never easy and if there is a 4-legged friend involved, things can get pretty ugly over ‘who gets the dog?‘ But this court battle has gone to the extremes to say the least! Craig Dershowitz has already burned through $60,000 in a cross-country court battle for the return of Knuckles, who is one-quarter pug and three-quarters beagle. Dershowitz’s ex-girlfriend currently has the dog in her home in California. But he claims she ‘kidnapped’ the dog and he is not giving up….
The couple dated for four years and broke up in March, 2011, but were sharing custody when Dershowitz claimed in court papers that she “kidnapped’’ the dog. Dershowitz said he purchased the dog when the couple was together two years ago and grew very attached to him. Now, he’s looking to raise more money to get him back.
Would you ever go through such a process and spend so much money for the return of your dog?
