Man & Woman Fight Over Lost Dog, But Judge Judy Lets The Dog Decide!

Judge Judy is at it again.

The famous small claims justice (and personal hero) is known for her no nonsense decisions over menial (and admirably entertaining) issues that small claims court is famous for. This time around, it wasn’t unpaid utility bills or far fetched accusation, that brought plaintiff and defendant to the bench, but a case of man’s best friend.


The plaintiffs beloved dog, Baby Boy, ran away from home one sad day and was nowhere to be found. Unbeknownst to her, a local woman, the defendant, bought the same dog for $50 in front of a local mall for her mother.

Then some happenstance coincidence led to the plaintiff finding out… and he was determined to get Baby Boy back.


And so we find defendant and plaintiff in a head-to-head struggle to go home with their best friend… but whose dog was it in the end?

In a genius move, Judge Judy directed the defendant to place the pup on the floor and see who it ran to first. Check out the video for the heartwarming result in the video below!
