So my irresponsible dog owning neighbors are at it again. They have two puppies now, in addition to their three older dogs. The pups are little guys, cute and friendly as can be... but they know how to escape.

Last night both of them were in my back yard. I was able to catch one of them, as he's the one who is crazy about me and came right to me. Holding the puppy against my chest, I went to the side of their house where I could see the flicker of TV through the window, and I began yelling "YOUR PUPPIES ARE LOOSE, COME GET THEM!"

A young twenty-something girl opened the window, then proceeded to floor me with what she said:

"The dog owners aren't home, I'm watching the house for them, and I'm afraid of the puppies, so I can't come get them."

Can't you just drop him in the yard?" (yeah, I'm going to drop a puppy over a 6 foot fence onto concrete)

"No, I can't unlock the gates, you'll just have to figure out a way to get him in the yard."

By this time the other puppy had taken off out into the street behind my house, mainly because a certain yellow and white fat girl with a purple collar had chased him there. I ain't namin names...

Since it was left up to me, I found a way to slip him under the bottom of the chain link out in their backyard. I was happy to see both puppies greeting me at the fence this morning for our customary snack time. The one that Tubby chased seemed no worse for wear... thankfully.

So I ask you: Who in holy frikkin hell would leave a person who is afraid of puppies fercrissakes in charge of five dogs? An idiot, that's who.

End of rant.

You have to wonder if people like that think, "hmmm, since my neighbor is a caring, responsible person and he'll watch out for my dogs whenever I can't be bothered to do so, I'm going to get puppies to add to my collection!"

Sounds like one idiot left another idiot in charge...how can a dogsitter be afraid of dogs, let alone friendly puppies?
Those poor dogs. At least you were there to catch the puppies and save them from playing in the street. Sounds like it's only a matter of time though. If they come over to "visit" Uncle Fontucky again, could you possibly contact a rescue group who could rehome them?

Oh, and would this tubby white and yellow girl be Nanners, worried about keeping the good life all to herself?

People never cease to amaze me. This is the current status of a Facebook friend: FFS, both my cat and dog are in heat at the same time!

Um, perhaps fixing your animals would help? But no, she wants to breed the dog, and *maybe* the cat.

My local humane society has a program where "officers" go out and educate people in the community about dog care. If the dog is getting food and water, I doubt that authorities take the dog, but you might want to check with your local animal control or shelter just in case.
Do you ever see them out and about? You could ask if you could play with the dog and see what they say.
If you do decide to set him free (and I would be tempted), take him to a shelter or rescue instead of leaving him to roam.

my response to loose dogs is a trip to the shelter (preferably no kill)

if its an accident ill give the benefit of the doubt the first time or 2 a dog gets loose, ill return them home and suggest they fix the fence (or get one) but after i know they know the dog can get out and i know theyve done nothing to fix the problem thats it...catch em and off to the shelter (or call animal control depending on how animal control is in your area...)

irresponsible owners like that need a wake up call, theyll soon stop buying dogs (and will fix their fence) if they have to keep paying to bust them out of the shelter...
