It completely depends on the people/pet/situation.

I was in the position to keep my dogs with me. My ex was only interested in himself, fullstop!

I would suggest that whichever person has the most stable home environment/ finances/ is able to spend most time with the pet, or the one who gets to live in the home where the pet has lived longest, gets custody. With the former partner allowed regular visitation rights.

It really depends on the individual situation, which would need to be accessed at the time. No set rule!
