Dear Mike and Nicole,

My fiance and I are breaking up. He proposed to me at Christmas with a diamond engagement ring and a puppy we both had talked about for awhile. We did the research and everything before finding the perfect dog for us. I am giving the ring back, but want to keep our dog. He says the dog is his because he bought him. I say he's mine because he was a gift. I could care less about the ring, but how do we figure out who gets Zeus?!

Before you suggest sharing him or having visitations, that will not work because he is moving back to Boston and at this point, things are not in a good enough place for that.

Help please!
