So Saturday I went to my nephews birthday party, it was the first time I've seen their new house.When I was looking around the backyard I noticed a dog chained up in the neighbors yard. It made me very mad I hate it when dogs live there lives on chains it is illegal in my county. So of course I had to go see this dog. I got up to him and saw he was way under weight. His ribs are very easily seen, his side sunk in and his hip potrude. Because of him not having any meat on him he has sore spots from lying on his bones. Also his water was disgusting there was a bucket of water that had algae in it and a food and water bowl just as bad. I dumped out the water bowl and refilled it. Than me and another girl jumped down into the dogs yard we dumped out the bucket and turned it over. We noticed inside his dog house has dirt and mud in it No blanket to keep him warm when it gets cold outside. You can tell his been there a while cause all around him was mud no grass(other areas of the yard had grass). The worst part was that they do not have a dog chain on this dog they have a what I believe is a LOGGING CHAIN. A logging chain is very heavy and must be weighing this poor dogs neck down. I'm thinking about calling the pound to get him out of there, but I hate to do it cause he'll probably end up being put to sleep. He's such a sweet dog despite being treated like he is. It's gotta be better than living how he is. Isn't it? Here's some picks of the dog, I've been calling him Ace it popped in my head the first time I saw him, fits him well. I believe he is a Black lab Mix.
