|Do you have any kind of neighborhood group that meets, like a Neighborhood Watch chapter or some sort of a local community association?
It doesn't sound like this particular neighbor would be likely to attend, but if you have a bit of solidarity with some of the others, you could prepare a short talk and have a discussion session, which would strengthen community ties and get things moving in a "together, we have an issue with a neighbor who's not behaving in a very community way and we have steps A, B, C we're going to go forward with to try to resolve it" way.
You could sneakily turn a crummy situation into a community bonding opportunity. The other nice benefit of that is it helps prevent the kinds of stuff that turns eventually into "Goly gee, dogs are such a problem! Let's limit people's ownership of them, or ban certain breeds, or start putting down all the strays..."
If that's not a resource for you it's not an option obviously, but when you're in an area that does have those kinds of things in place it's a good idea to take advantage of them!
