What a sad story... I think I'd be very uncomfortable having this person even in my house.
My best friend's husband had their black labrador mate with the neighbour's lab and kept one of the resulting puppies. This pup is almost a year now, has already been impregnated by her father
and had to have a contraceptive injection at the vets, came into season again, and they still hadn't had the male castrated
they eventually had him done it's a small miracle that they didn't have a disaster. Anyway, the point I'm really trying to make is they NEVER take the dogs out! To be fair to my friend she never wanted the dogs in the first place, it was her husband's idea... he lost interest and quite frankly abuses the dogs (screams and shouts at them!) I try to block it out of my head because it upsets me so much, and I've not been visiting so much lately.
We used to meet and walk on a Sunday morning, but this didn't last. Bearing in mind I felt so bad tonight when I visited them that I hadn't taken mine out for their second walk of the day (its -4 degrees tonight) but when I came home my husband had taken them
These dogs probably haven't been taken out for at least 6 - 8 weeks!
They're having a large extension built also, so dust and rubble everywhere - sad neglected unloved dogs... I hate it!!!
Sorry about the rant!
