Case studyCase study - Natalie and her pet dog

Natalie went to Queensland for a six-month work contract. She could not take her pet dog, Charlie, with her. She asked her friend, Rachel to look after her dog while she was gone. When Natalie returned to Sydney, Rachel told her she was not going to give Charlie back. She said that Natalie had not looked after Charlie properly and left him for long periods alone. Rachel said that Charlie was better off with her. Natalie does not agree and wants Charlie back. Natalie sent Rachel a letter of demand and got a letter in reply saying that Rachel would like to keep Charlie and offered to pay her $100 instead. Natalie refused Rachel's offer and she started a claim in the Small Claims Division of the Local Court for the recovery of the dog, or $600 for the value of the dog. At the first court date, Natalie and Rachel come to an agreement to settle Natalie's claim. ​They write up terms of settlement.
