^ This is my sentiment as well.

Sounds like all the dogs around where I live, hell Beau when he was much younger between 6months - 2 years old lived like this (Where I lived there were no leash laws). He was free to hunt and do Beagle things! He had lots of friends and loved every minute of it. When we moved and had to keep him from roaming...it's like a piece of himself went away.

This. It's not that I'D choose, or how I'd raise a dog, but I wouldn't call it abuse. I think it's neglect to a point, but just another way of raising dogs I guess.

My step-dad and moms cockapoo basically lived like this. We have 3 acres and behind us is 90 acres of farmland. She NEVER wanted to come inside so we'd often leave her outside. *I* never liked it, I'd try my hardest to get her in, but she'd go run under the deck and it was impossible to get her. However, she got ran over when she was almost 5 years old. She chased cars... it was inevitable, I was devastated but I almost knew it was going to happen one day. So... to me, that's the risk you take when owning a dog and raising it like that. However she was a happy dog, loved all of us, slept in my moms bed every night, loved playing with Jackson, was brought to the vet at least yearly. I would've chosen different for her, but at that point, she was already so set on her ways.

I would say its benign neglect and a great life... till something goes wrong. I like the idea of a note on the collar.

^^ Agreed. I definitely wouldn't call it cruel at all.
