For ten years after the breakup, they fought over the Blues dog: then Martina decided to be his only owner
When a couple breaks up, what is the fate of the family dog? Today we want to tell you the story of Blues, one of the many four-legged friends disputed between two ex. The puppy was adopted by a couple in love, Alessandro and Martina.
How can this happen, things often don’t go as planned and love can end. When the two decided to break up, they also thought about Blues and what his place should be. Usually when two people break up, the grudge remains and you can’t manage one joint custody. Someone chooses to keep the dog only out of spite of the other or worse to hurt him.
But Alessandro and Martina continued to share their four-legged friend. For 10 years the Blues dog has had two houses, two kennels and two people who love him madly just 4 km away.
Martina’s decision for Blues
Then one day something changed and Martina decided to don’t show it again to her ex, sure she can do what she wanted since the microchip is in her name.
Alessandro, who, however, had no intention of giving up his Fido, requested theintervention by lawyers and animal welfare associations, who supported him to assert his reasons. Unfortunately he hasn’t been able to do much, because according to the law he is nobody to the dog, despite the fact that he has been loving and caring for him for 10 years.
Unfortunately Martina and Alessandro never married and therefore they did not separate and did not divorce. Legally Blues belongs to the woman, since his name is on the microchip.
The man still does not explain why Martina changed her mind overnight. They have always shared the dog and for him it is a important member of his family. The 4-year-old son is also suffering from separation.
According to Martina Blues, he is stressed. He started to have some age-related ailments and we had him examined by many vets, but she was never happy. Until she took him to a clinic by herself and then gave me this response, emphasizing the fact that she is the only owner and can decide what she wants. For all of us it was a cold shower. She said she’ll keep it until she dies. He is also our dog, it is not possible that he will be denied us in this way.
Alexander could not do anything, because the law is not on his side. But he wanted to tell his story on the web, with the hope of raise awareness the government or whoever has the power to decide in situations like yours. After his experience, the man has got to discover that they are there many people in the same situation as you.
It is not possible that before the law the animal is still an object.
