What can i do to get my dog back from the persons daughter who was looking after him for me?

about 2 years ago i found myself in a hard situation and wound up homeless so my mom offered to care for my dog. shortly after that she found herself unable to care for him so we found someone else to care for him untill i got on my feel again. sadly he died about 3 months ago and his daughter moved into his house and started caring for him not aware for the agreement that me and her dad had. now she wont give me back my dog. what can i do? (i never relinquished owndership of him and it was fully known that he was still my dog and i was working towards being able to bring him home)

You may want to contact the person who is currently caring for your dog and explain that the care for the dog was subject to those conditions that you mention.
If that does not work you may want to approach the police about it and explain the situation to them. 
If the police do not intervene, you have to go to a court and file a small claims complaint.

Hope that answers your question. This is only a general solution. Again, being a lawyer in Alberta I am generally restricted from giving legal advice in the jurisdiction of British Columbia.
