|Okay so I know I just joined this forum but I have a HUGE problem and I don't know what to do! So I live in a not so good neighborhood, the kind where dogs like Pit Bulls are used as a way of showing how tough you are and what not (to be blunt I live in the ghetto, hope that won't be censored). So basically everyone here owns a Pit Bull all of which are bought off random "backyard breeders" and are never fixed. Both my neighbors own Pit Bulls or Pit Bull mixes (the mixed one is an unspayed female who is chained to a cinder block or crated outside all day, she is the WELL treated one ). My other neighbors have an 8 month old Pit Bull that they never care for, he wanders around the neighborhood and is never fed or given water, he has sores and calluses that bleed all over him, my neighbor's yard is full of dog hazards (broken glass shards from beer bottles, roofing nails and trash), his owner never plays with him, walks him, bathes him, or even keeps him in his yard. Most of them are...I don't know how to word it but I hope I won't be censored or banned...drug addicts and drunks? The son (age 20, or so he says) and his friends are. I've seen this dog kicked, had cigarette ash tossed on him and everything else. I originally gave him toys (which were thrown out) and a water bowl (never cleaned) but soon he just started coming to my yard (which is fenced in) and now I take care of him, it's like pet sitting only I'm losing money (which is fine), every time I tell his owner about this he just says "oh it's okay just play with him over there," (a while back before he stopped feeding him he would say "I need a dog for my son, a dog that has my back,")the dog is very attached to me specifically now, he barks and growls at his owner and is very protective of me and my family. I want to keep him but I don't know about the legality of this situation,
so what should I do? The dog stays with me all day and night if that matters.
