Manhattan Man Suing for Custody of ‘Kidnapped’ Dog, Knuckles

By

"I chose the name 'Knuckles' because he was the littlest yet most spirited of the litter. He looked like a scrapper," said Craig Dershowitz, an art gallery employee whose ex-girlfriend Sarah Brega ran off with the puggle to California, according to the complaint. Poor Dershowitz hasn't seen Knuckles since September. "You say [bringing the suit] is an extraordinary step but I think most pet owners would agree with me," Dershowitz said. "Knuckles is my son, my heart — you would fight just as hard to protect your own children." The court of public opinion says: Free Knuckles!
