Default Well, ok then.

On one of the local pet pages on facebook a while ago someone asked if anyone knew who owned the border collie pup that was running in the dog park unattended. Boiled down to the dog is owned by someone who works nearby and the story is the dog is either in the park alone, or running around outside the fence of the dog park alone. A lot. The owner checks on him from time to time.

Some people said it wasn't a great idea and not responsible of him, but...

There's a bunch that thinks it's fine, safe, ok and not a problem for the dog to be running loose because it'll learn eventually to stay around the shop parking lot and even if not, it's not hurting anyone, certainly wouldn't have a disease or parasite and they'd do the same thing....



Yes, it's a nice pup now and likely won't cause any issues, but where this dog park is, there isn't a shop that's really close unless it's the one across from the dog park, and you drive down the road between to park. I'd hope it's that one, if not it's not anywhere nearby and the 'owner' isn't watching or nearby to say 'it's my dog' when someone's been there an hour and concerned the dog has been left because nobody's called it.

Check out leash laws in your city and call AC.

Blows my mind.
Imagine what could happen! I mean sadly it's one of those situations where nobody will see a problem until something happens.

I couldn't imagine letting my dog just run around like that!

I think the AC person is on the same page though, that's the funny part. I'm sure she's already been called and if it's known to be an issue will make her way around there more often. But yeah. DUMB!

The one park in the city (well a few of them) are known for people who drive to one parking lot, drop off the dog, then go to the other end and park and wait for the dog to show up. Happens enough that the odd time I've been to those ones I've seen someone do it. I just couldn't imagine.

See if I found a dog running by itself, especially if it had no ID, I would assume someone had abandoned it and take it to the shelter it something. The guy is lucky that hasn't happened yet.

Same here. Or worse - the dog could get stolen, period.

Same here. Also, what if the dog tried to make its way back to the store and got hit by a car (even in the parking lot) or got into a fight with another dog at the dog park? I could see the owner trying to blame the driver or the other dogs owner.
