I have a friend who adopted a dog off the streets. The poor dog (it was a mix, but I'm not sure what) had been abused since childhood, had KNIFE SCARS over her body, and was starving. It took about 7 months for the her (the dog) to get used to my friend. Even now, she has trouble with strangers and can only deal with my friend's best friends. This includes me, and she's the sweetest girl ever - I don't understand why anyone would do such a thing! And to add to the mood - she was found in the rain in a sewage pipe, dying. And I am not exaggerating anything ...
I vote Animal Control. My neighborhood is FULL of dogs (I've counted 8), but all the neighbors are so kind. One time, one of our neighbor's dogs got out. Another neighbor, who also has dogs, was shocked and took her in until our neighbor's came back. It turns out they were out for vacation for an entire week, however the other neighbor (lol.) still kept their dog for that entire week. THey come back, and they were so sweet about it. The neighbors who lost the dog, paid her a nice amount for the trouble, and the other neighbor said "she'd gladly do it again if she had to." (The dog was slightly new, so the chances of it returning were slim). I'm glad I live here. Sorry you have to deal with such trouble.
