Update So I had decided to wait until I saw the dog again before calling the pound to see if it's living conditions have improved. I went to my sisters sunday and she said he was doing much better. He know runs free in there fenced in yard and get clean water and food every day. They also cleaned up the yard and his igloo. I am soo happy that these people straitened up and took responsibility for their dog, but it stills angers me so much that they would ever treat this sweet boy so horribly. He actually might have prevented my sister from having an intruder in her house. He was barking like crazy it sounded like he was outside her window so she woke up to see a flashlight shining through her window her husband went outside with a gun scaring off the intruder. I will keep an eye on him and my sister is also checking up on him everyday.
