Alanis Morissette and her husband Mario Souleye Treadway hare suing Maria Garcia, their former housekeeper because they believe she has Circus – their dog – and won’t return it to them. Circus, is a Chihuahua-pug mixture – which Alanis Morissette and her husband found three years ago on the streets, according to a Yahoo! News report on Thursday. They did the right thing by taking the dog to an animal shelter, but got to adopt it after no one claimed it.

After the housekeeper was fired as House Manager two months ago, she emailed the business manager of the couple saying that she wanted to own Circus as a part of her severance package. She said she became very close to the dog after having been the caretaker of the dog when the couple went on tour – as they are in the music business.

The response from Alanis and her husband is that they have filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court asking for the former housekeeper to pay over $25,000 as well as the return of the dog.
