It generally stays in their yard but has crossed the street, wandered into neighboring yards, etc.


Would you kindly let me know where you found this...thanks much

The leash laws in the COSA are a sorry joke, IMO. Over the years, I tried time and again to get 'em involved when there were dogs wandering the neighborhood, and NEVER got a response. Period. I finally gave up and took matters into my own hands. And got news for you - don't bother trying to take 'em to the pound yourself - they typically won't take 'em.

If I see someone dumping an animal, they'd best hope to sweet Jesus that I can't get a plate number, and/or they notice me tailing them - because I WILL turn 'em in and if at all possible, lead cops straight to where they are!

I have a neighbor that bathes her dogs out in front. We don't have enclosed yards out front so at times she's bathing one german sheperd while the other roams around (with no leash) not to mention a great Dane also. She also makes it a habit of going to her mailbox across the street while the dogs are loose in her front yard. I've even had to call Bexar County on this lady for trespassing onto my property and messing with my dogs, so there's no telling what mentality she's in. I had an incident with a german sheperd that attacked me for no reason years ago and ever since i don't trust this specific breed. I've made one report and i've taken pictures, i'm confined to my home every time she's bathing them or checking the mail. What can i do and does anyone know if there are rules within a HOA that apply to pets also?

Here are all your options:

1. Get to know your neighbor / her dogs so that you feel comfortable that they won't attack you. This way, you won't be "confined" to your home whenever she's bathing them or getting her mail.
2. Talk to your neighbor and try to get her to keep her dogs on a leash
3. Call 311 and get a hold of ACS and make a report (don't hold your breath for anything to happen)
4. Check with your HOA about rules regarding animals. If something applies, take it up with your HOA
5. Move

i have the exact same problem. ive called animal control IDK how many times about the unleashed pit they keep outside half the day. that pit also mauled a shi tzhu mix (thats mysteriously disappeared since ACS opened a criminal investigation on them), yet no one will come out to impound it. it also chases people on my street who ride bicycles and motor-assisted bicycles.

ive gotten into it with the neighbor a few times about it, though she seems to not care. the only good thats come of it is that ive spoken with her landlord who said he's not going to renew ANY leases to any residents in that house when their respective leases are up. theyve already trashed the house (2 / 3 tennats there are under a year on their lease) and have no respect for anyone.

Anyone who lets a dog run loose anywhere does not deserve to have a dog and should be fined. Period.

Turn them in for what fella? I doubt the fuzz does anything unless they are releasing bears or wild tigers.

Well if you put it that way it is. LOL

I also thought animal control would not pick up a stray unless you already captured it first? New policy.

Yea that's real smart to suggest getting to know my neighbor after i just got a criminal trespass warning on her. Hello? She obviously has no respect for the people around her, so i was trying to see if anyone was familiar with HOA's and what they have to say about pets with no leash within the communities. Yea maybe I should ask her to leave since i was living in my home before she came..... Retarded suggestion but i expected something stupid like from atleast one person. And yes it had to be you. I think I'll be better off trapping the dogs and shipping them to another country....lol
