I was not sure where to post this and I know it will get moved to the right thread. There is a dog at the end of my alley I am worried about. It is always barking when you go by (day and night) so you notice if he isn't outside. There are soooooo few times where he is actually inside. Last winter it was -30 F outside (with windchill) and he was sitting out there. He is chained up to a big tree. His shelter is their garage but they have to leave the big garage door up for him to get in so it is pointless, his leash isn't long enough for him to really get into it and out of the wind. The first time I actually went up to this dog his stomach growled and I have never heard that before. I called the cops and nothing happened. So I have been wondering what I can do to help him. I bought him dog treats (I know it isn't the best but I am afraid to get caught feeding him bc I do not truly know what goes on with this dog), and I stop and pet him and give him attention at least every other day (I got caught two days ago but they didn't say anything). So tonight it feels like 2F and I want to go scoop him up and bring him home with me. He is sitting by the tree all curled up, it is so pitiful. What should I do? I planned on making him a dog house tomorrow but tomorrow isn't right now (it is going to be the best dog house ever plan on dropping it off one night so no one knows where it came from)... Any advice on tonight? I am really worried he was shaking like crazy earlier and it felt like 15 F....
