Ok, so it's Friday night, and about 11:30 my sister comes busting in here "There's a dog outside". I go out, and lo and behold there's a dog. Same scenario as last time, young, looks like a pit, but female, and mostly white, and has a collar. Oh look, the colllar as the rabies tag, the name of the dog, "Mack" and a phone number. So, we call. A young female answered and we asked if she lost her dog, described the dog, and she said -I gave a dog named "Max" to my brother, that's not my dog, let me call him-. She calls him, we call her back, and she said no, my brother said his dog is at his house. We asked if she was sure and she said yes, and it didn't sound like her dog, and we told her where we lived and she said she lives nowhere near us, and just hung up. So, of course, based on last time a dog happened into our yard, I didn't want to call animal control. This little girl was a puppy, I'm talking 6 months at most. Very well fed, nails clipped, since she is was still visibly white, just overall a very well cared for little puppy, and very energetic. Gave her some water, and called my brother, and they have a kennel that is plenty big enough for her, and so they said they would keep her until tomorrow when I go asking around if anyone has lost their dog. What should I do if nothing comes of this. I really feel that whoever's phone number we called, they dumped that little girl, but, at this point, isn't this a case of animal cruelty since I think abandonment is considered a form of cruelty? Sorry this is so long but this can't keep happening. It tears my heart up and I'm not sure what I can do, or what I should do.
