Estranged couple in custody dispute over Knuckles the dog

 Would you sue for custody of your dog?

A New York man is feuding with his ex-girlfriend, now living in Southern California, over custody of their pet dog Knuckles, a pug-beagle mix.

Craig Dershowitz took to the Internet in an effort to help rescue his "kidnapped puppy," a dog he says was stolen by his ex-girlfriend, Sarah Brag. On the website, "Rescue Knux," Dershowitz said he is trying to raise money for a legal fund to help get the dog back. As of Wednesday morning, he had raised $3,750.

"All I want is to bring Knuckles back home to me," Dershowitz said in an Internet video. "In a lot of ways, he's like my son. He's absolutely the cutest dog in the universe. He has big floppy ears. He snores like an old man. His whole butt wiggles when he wags his tail. … He's incredible."

In the video, Dershowitz said he had to hire two private investigators to track his ex down.

Dershowitz claims a court awarded him custody, but Brega continuously files "frivolous" motions in a bid to bankrupt him.

In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," she said she thinks this case is about revenge.

"Knuckles has been with me since he was 8 weeks old," she said. "I really can't imagine my life without him."

A judge is scheduled to hear arguments Wednesday.
