Unhappy Well I just called Animal Control

I hate doing this but I think it would be better for the dog. They said it might take a while but they would get someone over here, I think it's b/c I wanted to remain anonymous. This will be long, I'm conficted.

My neighbors are (to put it nicely) white trash, they have a female dog who looks like a small choc. lab mix and is not spayed. Anyway this is the second time I've done this. The first time they came out and put her back in their fenced in back yard and gave them some kind of warning and a how to keep her from getting out. She had broke off her chain and crawled/dug out under the fence and proceeded to get into trash cans, demolish yard decorations, dig holes under my fence and take off my shoes that were on my back porch.

Then she kept getting loose and wound up yep you guessed pregnant. When the pups were born I saw them out in the grass, out of her reach b/c she was chained, so I pulled some old espionage tricks and got over there and put the pups in her dog house. Then I looked around for water and food, no food just a few empty dirty plastic bowls that had been chewed on, the water bucket is drilled to the side of the dog house, it was green! So I got my hose and gave her water and took some cans of Alpo and fed them to her which she gulped down in 5 seconds. Well all the pups have been gone for some time I don't know if they died or if they gave them away. They turned out to be little hairballs.

She keeps getting out and I don't blame her. She's bored out of her mind and she's trying to scavage for whatever morsel of food she can find. But she's been out for like 2 days now and she's barking and chasing cars, and the meter reader guy just came by and she kept charging at him. I think they forget they have a dog and plus it's obvious they don't know how to care for one.

Now see, doesn't it seem like this should priority for A.C. neglect is neglect and overpopulation is bad enough already. I hope if they pick her up that the neighbors won't pay the fine and she will be able to find a new home where someone will take care of her.

Am I doing the right thing? I'd hate for Charlie to try to get out, it's driving him nuts that she's out there barking. Does anyone think I should just mind my own business?

Definitely the right thing. I wouldn't have been so patient and would have called as soon as she got the pups though.

You did the right thing. I hope they pick the dog up soon or someone will take her in and give her a loving home. Poor thing.

Animal Control doesn't really seem to be worried unless they get a tip on fighting dogs. I wish there was some other organization out there that cared about all aspects of dog/cat ownership. *sigh* But I had to call it in to give it a shot. Yeah Fran I wish they could do something about it, I don't think they would have taken her and the pups away from the home, it's less for them to try and take care of. I don't want her to be euthanized, I guess that's why I'm so confilicted.

i would have told them, " i think she's bleeding or something" lol..make them come out quicker. let someone else in your family (maybe a man)call again....just keep being persistent. they call themselves animal control, or "humane society" and then on the other hand , they really dont give a ****, ya know

Well I just saw the truck go by. I didn't see them pull up to the house, I was watching The Price Is Right, I want Bob's job. Dang it! But I don't see the dog out there or in the backyard and there is some note on their door knob. The dog is probably out wondering around somewhere.
