I have a situation and would like some advice. We live in a condominium and were technically not allowed to have animals. However, some of our neighbors have cats and small dogs. Well, my next door neighbor has a small Pomeranian dog and leaves him outside all the time. Since we've lived here, we have seen our neighbor shave his dog in the summer, yell and push the dog away, leave the dog outside in both hot and freezing cold temps. Now, he feeds the dog, sometimes. Usually, the dogs water and food bowl is empty and we have given the dog water in the past. The dog seems dehydrated and very hungry some days and other days seems perfectly fine. The dog is almost always filthy and matted. We watched him over Christmas break while our neighbor was out of town. We cleaned him up and groomed him and when the neighbor got back, he was very happy and thankful that we watched the dog. But now is back to yelling at the dog again. When asked why he yells at the dog, he says that he wants it go away, but it stays there, also said that family loves to hang out with the dog when they come by. I can clearly tell the owner is wishy washy about whether to keep the dog or not. Another detail, his family lives in the complex too, just on the other side and comes over quite frequently. They play with the dog and sometimes let it in at night when it gets cold, but they try to stay out of it from what I was told. One of our children asked to keep the dog and he yelled, take it then! However, I'm not sure if he was serious or just playing around. I do not want to offend this person, but the way the animal is being treated is not good. I brought the dog inside our home last night as he was freezing, shivering, have icy fur and is now showing signs of frostbite. I plan on taking the dog to the vet. Do you think I should just keep the dog? I am half afraid to let it back outside and I still have to talk to the neighbor about it. I know what I should do, but I do not want to offend my neighbor by just taking their dog. Advice would be helpful.
