  4. You can actually make this argument in court.
    A finder has rights against all others to the property except against the original owner. After a certain amount of time, if the original owner does not lay claim to the property, the finder can gain title to the property. It's called Adverse Possession (assuming the plaintiff is in fact the original owner), however the statute of limitations is generally 3 years for personal property .

    If however, the plaintiff is not the original owner, than this guy would own the dog via acquisition by capture because he is first in time in terms of possession, i.e. finder's keepers.
