Wandering sweet dog
We have a dog wandering in the street everyday. The dog is owned by family one house over from my next door neighbor. The dog wandersi nto our yard, hangs out on the street. Our street is a cut through, winding road and the people quite often speed.
The first time we came to look at the house, we found the same dog on the street and was about to be hit by another car. Our realtor who is a major dog lover and whose daughter works in the dog rescue, got the dog in our car. Dog was clean and well fed. He immediately took to my DH. From the tag we located the house and when the realtor approached the owner, the woman actually started to verbally abuse the realtor for bringing the dog in. The dog refused to go with the owner and clung to my DH. She pulled the dog out of the SUV roughly and dog moaned and cried. She continued to verabally abuse the realtor and all the drivers that drove on the street. We were completely shocked and speechless. The dog is very sweet and not at all agressive. Today dog followed me home from our gate, but Lizzie was not very happy, while Benji wanted to be friends with him. The dog was gentle with both of them but I am not sure how to handle this situation. I definitely don't want to deal with the owner after having seen what kind of person she is.
Our phone service was being installed while the dog followed me and the technician (another dog lover) took the dog over to the owner and the owner's son told him that let the dog be and that the dog always wanders around. Obviously they don't care. The technician was shocked to see their reponse.
I am always terrified that the sweet dog will be hit sometime by the vehicles. I am not sure what I should do. The owners don't seem nice at all. Thank god that they aren't my neighbors.
