Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Louisiana

collecting money

I paid for someones dog to have surgery for a broken leg and have since cared for her for over a month. The girl has not come to see her in that time. Overall in medical bills the cost is $900. She wants to come get the dog but I said she cant have her until she pays me back. How much time do I have to give her to pay me back?

Re: collecting money

You really have no right to hold her dog until she pays you. You can sue her for whatever she owes you, but the dog is not "collateral."
