Angry Poor Labs!

I don't know WHY people think that they can just breed dogs without any rhyme or reason! I just had the problem yesterday with the lady confusing my dog for the dog that got her dog pregnant (the female dog was a lab) and then today I'm out walking my dogs and I see two labs (in the same yard) both VERY pregnant. These two labs are outside day and night. I'm not even sure they are both purebreeds either, I know one for sure isn't because her ears are straight up. I just made me mad that these people think they have the right to breed their dogs and raise puppies when they don't even have the time to spend with the mothers. You can walk by that house any hour of the day and those poor mommas are outside. I see one dog house for them and it's very run down looking. They used to have another lab too but that one has been gone for a few weeks (maybe that was the daddy). It made me mad and I thought maybe with time my anger would go away but it hasn't and I had to post. I know there is someone always home too because she is constantly at the park with her daughter and she used to go to the petstore that I work at to pick up dog food. I don't understand why the dogs have to be outside, especially not that it is so hot and they are pregnant probably due very soon. Where are they going to have the puppies at? I'm worried about them and I'm going to call the animal control about them tomorrow morning. Maybe they will have a word with the owners about keeping pregnant dogs outside in this heat all day and night.

yeah maybe I should try that. Just worried for the dogs. I hope maybe I am mistaken and they aren't pregnant. They just look like they are nursing or are getting ready to nurse.

Maybe a call to your humane society would be in order?

that's what I was thinking of doing tomorrow morning. They usually are too lazy to get up and do anything though. They'll probably just say as long as they have shelter and food and water are being given to them then it's legal.

Wouldnt the whole "pregnant bitches outside with no shelter or care for newborn pups" be of any persuasion to them?

You would think so wouldn't you. We have called them once before for an aggressive dog running at large and they said they'd come right over to try and get the dog and we never saw them. They do have 1 run down dog house that I guess could constitute as shelter. I'm still going to call them maybe they will do something about it since it concerns puppies.

Thats a great thing to do. Maybe since you've complained to them before, they'll be a bit more serious this time. Also, I cant imagine that they would just leave newborn pups outside to fend for themselves. Thats gotta be illegal, if I'm not mistaken.

I think it is illegal to leave the pups outside. I'm pretty sure these people wouldn't be THAT ignorant though. It's just I don't like the fact that the momma dogs are outside all day and all night and never allowed inside. Being out in this heat can't be too comfortable given their delicate condition. I hope these people wouldn't leave momma and pups out in the heat. Although yesterday the woman that claimed my dog was the father of her dog's pups kept her dog out in a baby pool in the garage. The baby pool was the whelping box.

Dont know what the point of having a dog is if youre gonna torture it by keeping it outside. Kinda defies the whole purpose.lol. I hope it works out for the mother labs and pups. Even the shelter would be a good alternative to the harsh heat. Keep us updated. I'm getting curious as to how this will end.
