Suzi, I am a lawyer. If the puppy was a gift, she is yours. That's the law.
But, I sense your concerns about getting into a big mess about this, especially when that mess can be expensive. The best thing to do is talk to him (if that's possible) and try to reach an agreement. Possibilities: buy him out of half the puppy, help him find another puppy, or set up visitation (he'll quit visiting after a while). If there are concerns about telling him you're leaving, then you need to scoop up the puppies and get out when you safely can. It's much harder to get custody of something that you don't have -- so, you need to assert custody by taking them. Private message me, if you want.
