Can someone sue me if the agreement was made with someone else?

my cousin asked my sister to watch her dog for no longer than 2 weeks. it has now been 3 months with no contact and they have not provide anything for the dog. she had to contact them and they had no intention on getting the dog anytime soon, so my sister kept the dog. now my cousin is sueing me for $7000 for the dog. i made no agreement with them. i was not there when the agreement was made with my sister. but they told other family members that they are sueing me because i have a full time job and my sister is a student. what should i do to protect myself?

A person can't sue someone else, besides the person a legal agreement, has been made with. If someone doesn't come back, to pick up their dog, it isn't your sisters fault.

They are trying to sue you, for they know you have money. It won't go anywhere and it will get laughed out of court. If you want an advice, contact an attorney.

You may want to look into your local abandonment laws, to see if this would be covered. As animals are property, this may be the case.

Your sister may also want to look into filling a counter suit against them., for dog care.
