I have a hard time dealing with people who abuse animals, children, women, their relatives. It is heartbreaking. I worked at the horse rescue three
times and couldn't believe how the previous owner people treated the animals, it was hard to sleep at night after working there. I stopped working
there when gas went up to $4.00 a gallon because it was an hour drive away by highway. Alot of people were abadoning their animals at the begininng of
the recession. Leaving horses in State Parks.
I have called the animal control people on neighbors who keep hound dogs outside in a shed in the middle of 20 acres. I don't think the authorities
did anything, and apparently this is deamed ok in this state. I don't like it one bit. I really get upset when I see dogs in the backs of people's
trucks this can result in the death of the animal.
I love dogs, I adopted one from the animal shelter that must have had distemper as a puppy and was partially blind as an adult. He bit five people
during five years. He was unprovokedly agressive. We had a baby and had to find him a new home, because his behaviour was unpredictable and he bit
people unprovoked. Animals can have bad breeding and mental illnesses too, just like humans. We still loved him even though he was unsafe to be around
small children. It was very sad for me to give him up, but I had to make the adult decision. Thinking of the child's safety and growing up scar free,
which he has.
Your neighbor should lose the right to have the animal, take photos of the situation, and write facts down the about situation. I would take the dog
and keep him, or find him a new loving home. This is a noble thing you are doing, that really matters. Best of Luck. Life is just filled with messy
