I hope they find the person who did this and throws him/her in jail. I'm so sick and tired of animal abuse that happens in this region.

Dogs die. Old dogs, young dogs, healthy dogs, sick dogs...

Just because a dog died doesn't mean a human had a thing to do with it. It's hot, it's muggy, it's been dry. It could have busted out a window, been a stray, starved, dehydrated, exhausted itself, had rabies, any manner of thing.

Neglect= abuse

Sorry , I take a hard stance on animal welfare . I even like animals better than most PEOPLE. But , in case you should ask, no I am not a "furry"

A dog breaks out of the house, the owners can't find it.

Do you consider this neglect?

I suppose I could see a dog could either jump or dig under a fence. My Great Dane can turn a round doorknob with her nose but she still doesn't have the ability to pick up a key to unlock a door.I don't mean to be a smarta...but I honestly have never heard of a dog breaking out of a house jumping through a glass window.If they do it's because something is wrong like no food or water i.e neglect They also could be in heat but that's why you spay or neuter.A house fire would be another reason a dog would crash through a window although sadly, most news reports I hear the animal perishes in a fire..A well cared for animal just doesn't behave that way for no reason.
The only way an animal would "escape" is if it is made fairly easy for them to do so i.e an open door or window.


If you are the sole parent watching your 3 year old child. You lay down on the sofa while your child plays. You have your front door open to allow the breeze come in. You start to feel yourself drift off to sleep knowing fully well your child can walk outside because your door is open... You awaken with the realization that your child is gone. Do you consider this neglect?
Hint-YES
