There’s an episode of Judge Judy that’s super popular among dog lovers.
In the episode, the plaintiff claims that his dog was stolen by the defendant. The Defendant in turn says the dog, a sweet Maltese, is one she bought off a stranger on the street.
The reason the episode is so popular is because of how Judge Judy settles the case. She has the dog in question brought into the courtroom.

When he gets set on the floor, he dashes to the plaintiff, who scoops him up with tears in his eyes as he says, “That’s my Baby Boy!”
