I don't know if your dogs came from responsible breeders- but if they did (aesthetic's post made it cross my mind) the breeder probably has a right to take the dog back.
HAving had multiple puppy people die over the years and dealing w the scenarios that result, that needs to be very crystal clear- sometimes heirs imagine dogs are worth $$ and want breeder to pay $$ to get dog back. Check your contract to see what it says and what you agreed to in the case you no longer are the dog's home.
FWIW- if anyone's curious- I only went to court over one, I was perfectly happy w the plans with the other people's end of life plans for their dogs. But this one- they (The parents of the man who died, who probably at least 75% of you would know so don't imagine wealth means you came out of intelligent parents) 'did not believe in' hw prevention,f/t prevention, or fencing, or any other responsible thing so when we uncovered this at the funeral, I asked for the dog. They declined, I filed suit the next Monday. I won. So- don't imagine a good contract wouldn't be upheld.
