My parents have this really horrid family that live next door. They have had to call the city and animal control many times re: green pool, chickens, pigs (they are not zoned for having farm animals) etc.. They put a horrible brick and iron fence around the front yard of the house and have turned that into the kids play area (can we say junk yard!). It is so trashy. To make matters worse - they now have two basset puppies. They got the first one (female tri) about 3 weeks ago. Last week there was a notice that the pup was missing. I was so enraged until I saw that sweet face in that yard. I asked my Dad what happened and he said she had gotten out and the neighbors across the street found her. Well, just this weekend there is a new basset (male red & white) that is older than she is. I am so scared for these pups! Those peoples kids are always dirty, playing in a filthy yard with no shoes and somtimes in undies only! The yard is NOT safe as there are all kinds of small toys and trash that the puppies can choke on. Now I'm afraid that they will try to breed them. They already have a couple of great danes. They may have had pups - don't quite remember. Is there ANYTHING short of stealing them that I can do? TIA for any advise.
