    So my neighbor has these two dogs a big one and a small one and for some reason they are always outside with no owner there and they run around the neighborhood freely. This is like the 33443523 time they been out ever since I was a third grader up to now (I'm 20 now )yet no one has ever call animal control on them I was wonder maybe I should get the law on them b/c these dogs don't even listen to their owner when their owner tells them to come instead the owner has to go chase after them. Like today their dogs wouldn't go inside the house so all they did was went inside and close the door and after a few minutes the big one went inside while the small one was still out there for another hour and the owner didn't even seem to care enough to come out to find it. I have been dealing with these dog for so long I can't remember once not going outside and not having the fear of the dogs coming out. Also if I do call animal control what do I say?

    if dogs are actively causing you problem you need to call animal control. If they are not bothering you other than the fact that they are out and don't listen. they are not your dogs so they are not your problem unless they cause one. if you have chickens you need to protect them from the dogs and other predators, no the dogs are not your responsibility but the chickens are. If dogs can get to them so can other predators

    Find out what the laws are in your area, then proceed accordingly.

    I agree, are these dogs an accident waiting to happen?

    If these dogs have been around since you were in 3rd grade and you are now 20, I would think if they were going to bite you they would have done so by now. Those dogs are at least 11 or 12 years old. They probably won't live much longer anyway...

    The best they could manage would be to 'gum' you a bit.
