|I'm not sure what to do so any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I live next door to a very nice older couple. However, they do not, in my opinion, take care of their animals they way I think they should.They are very old fashioned and (not to be mean, kind of not super intelligent, but nice). His children who are in their 40's are both married an unemployed and take turns living with them and then bring their animals and families. They have had two young horses DIE after a few months, not sure why... Also, the older gentleman had a dog that lived outside since we moved their about 10 years ago. He does have a dog house, but this poor old dog was hardly ever let of its short chain, and I felt so sorry for it. He did give it food and water, but it was no life for a dog. They have one dog that lives inside. I asked what happen to the dog this spring, and he said he found him dead this winter. I'm sure if froze to death..he was old and needed to be inside.
We live in a very cold state that can get minus degrees in the winter, and they never brought this dog inside.
I was actually glad to know that this poor dog no longer had to live this life.
Well,,,,I go outside about three weeks ago and I see a young mixed type breed chained up to the dog house barking. I finally found out they were watching it for some friends supposedly...I thought whew it will be leaving soon...thank God. Now I find out that the friends no longer want the dog and the son of his grown children said he was going to see if he could get $50.00 bucks for the dog. I told him to take it to the humane society because people buy cheap dogs on craigslist and do horrible things to them.
He has not gotten rid of the dog and it is already getting down in the 30s in the evening. When this poor dogs barks someone comes out..usually the unemployed husband of the adult daughter and yells for it to shut-up.
I have told my husband that if it is not gone soon, I will have to call when it gets so cold...what do you think should I?
I'm afraid to cause problems, but this bothers me so much. I already have 3 dogs of my own. It just breaks my heart. It's so hard to sleep knowing that dog is outside in a cold dog house.
