My neighbors just moved into a very small house that's for lease only. They had a 100 pound Akita with them which was fine (I do love how they look even though they can be aggressive dogs). Then they decide to get a female Akita when they don't even have enough room for the male. These dogs are out ALL the time...during rain, wind, sleet, etc. The owners work all day long but at least they leasve water outside. Yes, they have really furry coats, but I can't stand to see them in that if they can be inside all nice and warm.
Some people might think that there's nothing wrong with keeping their dogs outside all the time, but I would rather have mine inside.
So the problem is...the 100 pound male gets loose ALL the time. We know that he's nice, but no one else does. If you see a 100 pound Akita running towards you, you panic. My mom was taking Oscar outside (who's 5 pounds) a couple months ago and the Akita was loose and came running towards my mom when he saw Oscar and she jumped into her car really quick.lol
Years ago (like 10) our neighbors Akita attacked and killed our first Yorkie so we're a little skeptical about those dogs.
I don't know if I should write a note saying that if he's loose again, I'm going to call the animal control. I would hate to do that, but maybe it'll get the point across to the dumb owners to secure his leash or keep him inside. Ok, sorry for ranting...it just makes me so mad when people don't take care of their pets properly and he could get hit by a car or get hurt.
