Judge Judy Lets a Dog Decide Its Own Fate In a VERY Bizarre Custody Battle

Share on Facebook

Custody battles are an increasingly common thing nowadays, but something you see less often is a custody battle over a pet.

Even less common than that is how Judge Judy handled this odd case. Let’s take a look.

So it should be no surprise that they’re treated similarly to how loving people would treat their children. That is to say, the furry friends are loved and protected by any means necessary.

As you can see, many make light of the fact that people might be more likely to get protective over dogs than cats, but to each their own, right?

So while custody battles are never fun, they may be a necessary evil in assigning ownership and guardianship over animals.

Ugh. That seems pretty harsh, doesn’t it? Maybe they could find a more personal avenue befitting the nature of the dispute.

It might not be EVERYONE’S preferred method of resolution, but it gets the job done. Well, it SORT OF gets the job done, as you’ll see in this weird case of pet ownership gone awry.

The woman claimed that she had legally bought the dog from someone on the street, while the man bringing suit claimed that he had the dog stolen from him.

Judge Judy had the dog brought into the court room and decided that the pup would decide who its rightful owner is.

It just might be! Hold for a release of all the feelings you’ve ever had in your body. It’s gonna get messy with love and “AWWWs” in here.

The dog pretty much immediately recognized the man and was specifically looking at him and going wild.

That feeling of pure joy was too pure to last forever. See what a possibly-vindictive woman does to try to wipe it all away in the name of self-interest. Your blood will boil.

It only took about five seconds for Judge Judy to reach a verdict, and the man was reunited with his dog.

Good job, Judge Judy for seeing right through the ruse and doing the right thing. No doubt the pup and the dad appreciate it.

The dog definitely recognizes the man, so I think I have to agree with the judge here.

The best part is the man’s reaction after he gets his dog back. “Thank you, Judge Judy, you aren’t so mean after all!”

The more I watch the dog and the man, the cuter it gets. I guess even Judge Judy seems a little more sympathetic and nicer when there’s a pup around. She’s just like us!
