Irresponsible Pet Owner

A dog is a man’s best friend, but what if that dog is no longer man’s best friend? 
I myself have a dog to guard our house when we are not around.  I tied him everyday to make sure people who are passing by are safe.  For me, it is better to do it so that nothing bad happen.  I know my dog and what he is capable of.  As much as possible I want to be a responsible onwer to my dog.  A dog is a dog, and will bite if provoked and if the person they saw is new to them.  
I have seen so many dogs walking on the street.  Scary sometimes because some dogs will chase people they saw.  I hate those irresponsible pet owner who just let their dog walking around and out of their house.  One perfect example is our nieghbor. They have two dogs that they let it go out of their house.  One day this dog chase my niece, glad that the dog did not bite her but scratch her butt.  I told the owner to tied their dog because it is not safe to kids.  I thought they listen but they did not. Still their dog is not tied up.  The other night another kid was almost bite by the same dog.  The mother talked to the owner and still did not listen.  I am afraid to go out when that dog is outside.  We were thinking of poisoning the dog.  I know it is bad to do it but what can we do when the owner seems doesnt care at all?  I don’t understand why this irresponsible pet owner did not listen to us?  I so wish that no one will get hurt seriously before they will listen to what we are saying about their dog.

    Before poisoning the dog try calling the police and reporting that this dog is running loose, chasing, and biting children. They will notify owner to keep the dog tied up.

    Poisoning the dog is inhuman. You can always complain your neighbor to your Baranggay so that they can order your neighbor not to let the dogs go out. The dogs may not even have the proper shots and may be even have rabies. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

    here in bohol, about two years ago, stray dogs, or even those that have owners are shot dead! it was somehow a good ordinance because the pet owners have become responsible enough to keep their dogs in their homes, thus preventing the spread of rabies…some people are just so insensitive.
