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 sends Rachel a letter of demand.​

Dear Rachel

RE: MY DOG - CHARLIE

I am writing to you about my pet dog, Charlie, the German Shepherd, who I left with you on 4 June 20xx. On the day I left my dog with you, we agreed you would look after him and give him back to me when I returned from Queensland in 6 months.

It has been over 7 months and you have still not given me my dog back. You are not entitled to keep him.

I want you to return my dog to me by 28 January 20xx. Please call me to arrange a suitable time for me to pick up my dog or for you to return my dog to me. My telephone number is 0492 111 111 or (02) 9000 1000. 

If you don't return my dog by 28 January 20xx, I may start legal action against you without further notice and I will seek judgment for his return. If you no longer have Charlie, I will seek an order that you pay me his value which is $600. Legal costs may be added. 

Yours sincerely

N. Saad
