Custodio v Pucci, 2012 BCPC 445

Application for the return of a dog from the applicant’s ex-partner.

The Court determined that they have jurisdiction to order the return of a dog, as a dog is considered property.
In allowing the application, the Court held that monetary damages would not suffice to replace the dog. Accordingly, the defendant was given 72 hours to return the dog to the applicant.
