I let my ex keep our dogs, because he made more money and could afford to take over the house payment. I knew they would be happiest staying in their home and I could not provide them with that. It was the hardest decision I have ever made, but you have to do what is best for them.

A mix of different factors. Did someone have the pet pre-relationship? Who looks after it more? Does the pet care for one person more? Also things like living space and time to devote to the animal going forward matter as well.
