Does he still co-own the dog if he has not put any money into the dog? 2 Answers as of February 16, 2016

On November 15 2015, I purchased a pure bred dog. My fiancé jumped at the chance to put his name on the receipt and only his. I paid for the dog. I have paid for all vet bills. We do not live together and it is registered as I am the owner and he is the co-owner.

He is the joint owner he signs something transferring his share to someone else or a court rules otherwise.

In order to establish clear ownership you would have to be able to prove in a court of law that your fiance made no contribution and did not provide any consideration for the dog. You need to review the facts that can be established as evidence with an attorney.
