I hate my neighbors umadho? 1 child; Indiana 21293 posts

Like seriously hate every single f**king one of them. When we bought our house it seemed like such a cute little neighborhood.



f**k no it's not. These people across the street CANNOT seem to keep their dogs on a leash. And it's a war between them and I and another neighbor. Everybody is f**king sick of it.



The police have been out here several times. They've been fined TWICE now.
Yesterday I let Gizzy out to potty, he is a freaking 8lb pom. He is super tiny.



I was sitting there drinking my beer just relaxing. And I look over and this HUGE massive beast of a pitbull is running full force at my dog.
I FLEW off the deck and thankfully was able to rescue Gizzy.



He was going to EAT my dog. :shock:



My SO is PISSED. Like it was seriously scary, I was screaming and running I think everybody in the neighborhood ran out their doors.



I would of killed, if he had been eaten.



I'm not sure what to do about this. I fear for my dogs safety.

Our police wont "handle" issues like that. They call animal control and thye have to come and evaluate the situation and they will enforce something and when it isnt followed than the cops/borough will fine the party involved.



I would be calling anybody who will listen. Make tons of complaints and hope that something is done b/c its either the right thing to do or they are tired of hearing from you!

Is there a leash law in your area?If so, next time you see the dog out off leash, call animal control.

We don't have a animal control in this little ass town. It's the police that handle it.



They've been out here several times. Over the same people, between their dogs and fights.
I'm seriously about to march my happy ass over there and knock the pregnant b***h out.



I'm seriously mad.

There is a leash law.
No animal control though.
Police have fined them twice. Two dogs $172 per dog.

Then I would call the cops everytime you see the dogs off leash. Eventually the neighbors will get tired of paying the fines, or they will rack up a big enough fine to be arrested.

My parents had a tiny little long hair dachshund who was mauled by two akitas. He was in his own yard, and they came off leash into my parent's yard. They ripped him open and rearranged his internal organs, and ate a kidney. He died in surgery later that night.
The owners of the akitas were on vacation, but this was not the first time they had gotten out to roam the neighborhood. They were ordered to put the male dog down after that since it was more likely that he attacked first. The wife was heavily pregnant and had small children at home, so these were family dogs.



Tell them that story. You can never predict what your dog will do when you're not there regardless of how cute and lovable they are with you.

I just feel bad calling the POLICE over DOGS. They have bigger issues to worry about.



But shit is serious now, my dog almost got ate. Every time I see their dogs without a leash I am going to call.
Or just go over there and punch them all in the face every time I see their dogs off a leash.
I'd be doing lots of punching.

That breaks my heart. I have a little weiner dog too, he lives with my mommy though :(



The dog that came after gizzy, killed alllll of my neighbors cats. And gizzy is the size of a cat.
His little toosh is at risk.

It can be a risk to other people. Breed aside, unrestrained dogs pose a safety risk. A kid can get bit, or another person.

If the dog killed cats you can report that. People are not allowed to let their pets run amok and kill other people's pets.

And what happens if the dog targets a kid next? This is why I dont allow my dog to run the neighborhood. I KNOW she would probably chase down and kill stray cats (she catches the wild rabbits/squirrels/rats running around our yard. I have little doubt that she would go after a cat running around. Even tho she is OK with our cats). Not only is there a potential danger to the cats, but what if she bit someone? It can happen no matter what breed of dog.

I don't take Addison outside at all anymore for that reason.
I feel bad keeping her hostage in the house. But I just can't risk it.
It's pathetic that we BOUGHT this house. WE pay the property taxes and everything else.
But our daughter and dog can't even play outside.



The police told the people that I didn't feel comfortable taking my daughter outside. And the peoples response was "they aren't vicious" :shock:

It doesnt matter. The dogs should be kept on their own property. They dont belong on your property. And even if the dogs are nice, nice dogs still can bite. Dogs dont only bite out of aggression.

Exactly.
My weiner dog is the sweetest pup ever. But I pissed him off one time and he bit the crap out of me.



Animals will be animals, unpredictable.
