Dharmasmom, thank you. So many children go without this love.

Yup, as long as the dog is safe and healthy. I bet a homeless dog probably gets more attention from its owner than most regular dogs since the homeless person and the dog would be with each other constantly.

And if the dog isn't looking like it's well cared for, it would be pretty easy for other people to spot it and report it since they'd be on the streets and not behind closed doors.

I find the question itself quite offensive.

I said yes because I don't really care to sit here and speculate about people I don't know and whether or not I should allow them to have a dog. Last I checked it's a free country.

I agree, terrible question. A homeless persons dog is probably a lot happier than a lot of "homed" peopless dogs.

A homeless person has next to nothing. I know my greatest possessions are my pets. Although there's no way I could have my parrots on the street, you'd have to pry Grim from my cold, dead hands. I would never deny someone their best friend.

The problem here is that some people aren't really discussing the well-being of the dogs, they are stereotyping a section of the population and judging them all in the same way. Granted, the question wasn't even about dogs to start with, but about homeless people and their rights, or what rights greater society arrogantly thinks they should grant the homeless.

I wonder if the question was asked differently, in a way that did not imply that greater society had the moral right to take away the free choice of people they did not approve of, if the answers would be different?
Are dogs owned by homeless people being neglected and their needs going un-met?

In that, I would say they probably are un-met. I doubt they get vet care. But these dogs are either dogs that came with them or were picked up off the streets so in that area, they are better off than they were.
