Brilliant. "Whenever U can, make any behavior issue WORSE - don't deal with it, don't work to reduce it, exacerbate it."
Has anyone notified the local authorities of these irresponsible owners, who leave their dogs out to threaten passersby, & to go insane
with frustration when they can't attack them?
This BTW is the perfect way to CAUSE a mauling by any dog. They are essentially teaching the dog to severely injure someone, when they get the opportunity.
I realize she didn't choose this dog - but she owns him now; & she needs to live up to her commitment, & keep the community safe.
Leaving him outside, chained by the hour, is NOT responsible.
If anyone got hurt, i'd tell them to sue her into bankruptcy - & feel free to show her this post, as I'm entirely serious. // Having an enormous dog "gifted" to U & being disabled on top of it, is not an excuse to park him outside to practice threatening ppl & dogs.
Someday, he'll get a chance to nail an innocent passerby - & her finances, present & future, will be wiped-out.
She's had him for years, not months - & this is a community-wide concern.
