Can I do anything roughly speaking this?
This isn't that bad, but I feel sorry for this dog. Ok so here it is: My neighbor got a dog( supposedly a poodle dachsund mix, although it looks zilch like one, I think all dogs are cute but this is one wierd looking dog) for her kids final Christmas. They obviously have no idea how to vigilance for this dog at all. It is still not potty trained after all this time, and is cooped up in their kitchen for most of the time. When it is not in the kitchen it's outside, where they built this really small barrier around the yard.(By really small it looks kind of like a big play pen, it's not tiny but its definetely not big.) I don't consider the dog is fixed, and they just really dont know how to care for it. I know I cant report this, not that I woud, its not like theyre really abuse him. But, I feel really bad for this dog, and I want to say something to the female, but I don't know what.she's an adult and I'm a kid and I just don't know what to do? Should I do or say anything, or should I only just stand by and watch helplessly? Thanks!
do the right thing and address to the lady dogs were ment 2 be loved and trained not for just the pleasure of have a pet
I loved taking adjectives my dogs to puppy school where I would learn to handel them and how to really bond near them. most classes are very cheap. the owner gets good information from the educationalist who most likely breeds,owns, and or shows dogs.
in cananda I paid $80 for an 8 week course that be once a week for and hour and a half. it gets you and your dog out working and playing together you get your dog socialized beside other dogs and people.
you can put flyers in her mailbox about dog school or a flyer saying your avaible to walk and play with dogs and will do so. it sounds foolish but as a kid i did that for a very obese chocolate lab, and what was best was that the female paid me too.
you can call animal control and put out a complaint, they might not take her dog but they will check whether its up to date on needles and they may have her have the dog fixed. you can leave a tip and they wont disclose your nickname.
neglect is just as bad as assault.
In your satchel, you could offer to take the dog for walks or something approaching that - a little gesture that would brighten up its day hopefully. I tried this, offering a service free of charge for the woman, who declined, but your neighbour may be glad of the help, and the dog may be glad of the difference and attention. However, if the woman say no, there is nothing you can do. You could lure the dog to run away, whether it can jump the fence, but I strongly advise against this, as the female could technically get you done for dog theft!
If it gets worse, you could try reporting them to your local vet or council, but again you own very little legal power and as far as the law is concerned, it's her commerce, not yours.
I know you feel very sorry for this animal, and rightly you should, but the government and most those of this country just don't care enough roughly speaking dogs to make any difference.
