    It's probably worthwhile talking to the neighbour too- some people are a little naive when it comes to caring for animals and need a bit of a reminder. Hopefully if he realises how distraught his dogs are he will do something about it himself

    Depends how competent you are to assess the dogs as maltreated i guess? My dogs are outside dogs, which i dont think is maltreatment. And im sure some people not so familair with dogs may think my pup is too skinny, which she is not, she is a giant breed and needs to kept lean (although not malnourished) whilst she is growing to prevent bone and joint problems...

    In saying that these dogs do sound hard done by, and your well within your rights to complain to the council about the barking. I would just be hesitant to jump to the conclusion the dogs are being abused is all. As pps have said the council should be able to determine if rspca involvement is needed

    Its a tough situation. People in my neighborhood would probabley think that our dog is lonely or something terrible is wrong with him but he's fine. He howls when our other dog is not right next to him as he is deaf and going blind.

    Maybe talk to the owner and ask if he is aware of the dogs noise, Also what type of dog is the dad dog. If its a similar breed to my dog jess ( ridgeback cross kelpie) It may look skinny due to the breed, cause my dog looks like we never feed her but she gets breakfast and lunch but is just a muscly dog with ribs showing.

    Good luck and I think its awesome that you do care.

    Talked to the owner a few weeks ago about him extending the fence nothing has happened. The mum is a staffy and the dad is a red nosed pitbull. I'll take a pic and post it of the yard cause I just don't know what to do.
    Super our dogs are outside dogs as well and they only make noise when someone comes down driveway

    That dog looks perfectly fine to me - probably just noisy and active and needing some discipline!

    Ps if your throwing food over the fence of course he will run to you whenever your outside most dogs are pigs and will do anythjnv for food! Even if well fed!

    He could also be protecting his territory. My dog runs along the fence and barks at people that walk past too - which i love btw (we live in a sketchy remote town where being broken into is the norm, not an unexpected event!)

    It breaks my heart that they hear us giving our dogs lots of love but they don't seem to get it, the last few nights it had been freezing and when I've gotten up to pee I've heard the little pup whimpering.

    Neighbour was home last night I think... And I think the dad dog may have worms as dh threw some food over during weekend and he gobbled everyone's up but he is still so thin.

    Would you phone the RSPCA?? I'm so unsure what to do, I don't want to feel like a nosy neighbour but I also don't want the dog getting over our fence or once I have my newborn in a week or so waking him at all hours....
    I'd call the council about the noise.
