I've posted before about this but it's such a hard situation and I don't know what to do.
My neighbour is my good friend but we don't agree on a lot of things.
Animals are a big one. They have a dog that she tolerates at the very least.
My problem is, they frequently go away and leave the dog on it's own. They are going away next month for over two weeks overseas and the dog is left alone in the yard. (My boys feed him daily)
Is this normal? Our dogs are like family and have never even been left overnight alone.
I guess there's not much I can do. I feel so bad for the dog but if I called animal control they would know it was me.
They never walk him either, they just open the gate once in a while and let him roam the neighbourhood ****ting wherever he wants which is a massive pet peeve of mine. He really deserves a better home but if I report them he'll probably just end up in the pound.
I have no idea if there is anything I can or should do that won't make it awkward for everyone.

Have they organised with you to feed it or made no arrangements

They've organised with us to feed it.

There's nothing to report then. Quite common for people to go away and make arrangement with friend or neighbour to feed animals.

Even though he's just left alone in the backyard for more than two weeks? That seems like cruelty to me. I guess some people just shouldn't have animals. Next time I see him wandering the streets I should call the council. He deserves a much better home.

That would get a response. Dog on the loose. Dog left in 'care' of someone is 'being looked after' however we might see it

Maybe I'm a softie. I would never go away without putting my animals in boarding or staying with friends. I factor that into the cost of any trip.

Nothing wrong with that

Also he is a big sook, but looks quite threatening. If I were them I'd be terrified of a lawsuit if he looked at someone the wrong way while he is out on Walkabouts

I think it's god awful to do that to an animal. Especially one as social as a dog. Can you walk it at least a little each day or go play with it. I wouldn't ever offer again to feed it and tell them how much it fretted whilst they were away.
