How long are your dogs 'your's'?
I recently watched a movie. I believe it was called 'Mine'. It was about Hurricane Katrina dogs that were displaced during the storm. Nearly a year later the owners are still looking for them. It followed the case of 4 people wanting to find their dogs. All of the dogs had been 'adopted'.
It made me wonder, how long is a dog your's? If your dog got lost/stolen, how long would you look for it? And would you expect to get it back? What if you 'adopted' a dog that had an owner looking for it? Would you give the dog back after a year?
I realize that a natural disaster such as Katrina probably has different considerations, but humor me.
What would you do?
Sorry for crappy poll options. Figured a poll should go along, but wasn't sure of the best options to give.
