Apparently, she had become attached to the pooch while Morissette and Treadway were on the road touring.

The couple claims in the lawsuit that they found Circus roaming the streets in 2011 and took the dog to an animal shelter. When nobody came to retrieve the canine, they brought the dog home.

Morissette and Teadway are asking for more than $25,000 as well as the return of the dog.
