It has been 20 years since I left a dog outside unattended. Between AC and the vast number of sick, weird and slimy people on this planet I simply don't feel comfortable doing so. Sad for the dogs who can no longer waste days lazing in the fresh air while awaiting our return.More reasons to keep dogs (crated) inside when gone
From the article: "According to a neighbor who had witnessed the incident, Leo had been on the family's property "under the porch" when "Environmental Services approached him." They reportedly "tased the dog and dragged him to the vehicle."I would be interested in knowing how Animal Control actually picked up the dog. Did they have to noose the dog or did they just go in a leash the dog up? If it was the latter, clearly the dog wasn't dangerous. I wouldn't have a dog that someone could walk away with. That doesn't mean such dogs are bad dogs. Some dogs like that can be exceptional, but I don't think a GSD should be of that type of temperament.
