|There is a woman who lives a street down from me, so not really my neighbor, but she already knows I do not approve of the way she keeps her dogs so I know she'll know it was me if I complain.
This woman has x amount of dogs. (I'm not really sure because they are constantly coming and going, with x amount of kids.) At one stage she had a pitbull pup but that vanished. Last week I saw her kids trying to walk a 4 week old pittie/bully pup on the grass outside (it's eyes were barely open, so it was young.) There is a little male dog, jack russell thing. And then there is the bitch.
The bitch is a chi crossed something - absolutely TINY, anyway. She was bragging about its 'chi' tremors when I saw her on the street once so I guess it has chi in it. It is running all over the town at all hours. I don't really care if she lets it get hit by a car, that's her problem (it's already walking on three legs, so I assume it's happened once), but recently it came into heat and is still wandering at large. It ran up to my leashed male dog on the walk and put its tail aside, and he almost mounted it. Never mind that he's entire and this dog is about the size of his head - I barely stopped it and pulled him home, but the bitch followed with the little male. The male went hysterical, nipping and biting my dog. They were both on my lawn, sending my dog wild with barking inside. She looks like she has had many litters in the past as her teats are dragging on the ground. She is small enough to slip through my fence so I kept him inside for fear of him mating with her. The size of the puppies would kill her - and I'm afraid the owner would blame me for it if they came out looking like my dog.
This woman is a big, mean, angry customer. She looks the kind to cause trouble, and as I said, she knows I do not approve of her roaming dogs. I live in a very small town. And I'm terrified to call the authorities in case she seeks revenge or something. It has not run up and tried to get itself mated since, so should I just wait and see if she does something about it, or should I call the authorities, or should I just not let it get to me and not do anything at all?
Also, if the dog does get into my yard and mate with my dog overnight, what should I do? Just send it on its way or risk a confrontation returning it? Not saying that will happen but I worry it might as it's so small it could squeeze through my fence pailings easily. I have been trying to keep my dog inside but I'm afraid something will happen.
Is it worth calling the authorities for this or am I just overreacting and bringing trouble onto myself if I call?
