We have neighbors repeatedly calling the police
And filing complaints against our "boxador," Indiana Jones.
He's big and friendly but only barks when something pulls
In the driveway, crosses the yard, or unexpectedly walks
Through the house - at night - with a light. Basically
When he's supposed to bark. I'm willing to admit to a
Few outraged doggie tantrums because Indy didn't think
He was naughty enough to be put outside. But this dog
Does not bark unless he has a reason nor is that even
Excessive. What can be done? Do we have a right to a good
Guard dog? Or does complainant have all the rights? Is there any

Possibly Endangered Indiana Jones

It depends on where you live. Here a barking dog is a no-no. A few barks? Okie day. Consistent barking through the day? Nuh-uh. I think you might need to re-examine the amount of barking he's doing.
