These are two pit bull puppies that live in my neighborhood and it looks like they have taken the throne of the neighborhood on a stump on a hill on my property.
Two months ago our neighbor got these puppies. One a female and one a male. The little girl, Maylee is the black and white puppy seen here in this picture. She is an adorable puppy and seems to be calmer than the black mal,e Yager. Since these two puppies came to live in my neighborhood they have dug up my flower bed numerous times, chewed up things on my porch, ruied a wooden flower pot my best friend gave me about 20 years ago and ran off with my dogs watering dish, terrorized my cat, barked and growled at me and Yager has been seen at least a mile up the road with a rope dragging behind him. The two of them poop all over my yard which I know puppies have to poop but mine have a certain place the go.
I have spoken to the young girl that is the owner of Maylee and ask her to keep an eye on her babies because they could get in to trouble or worse get hurt. She said she would but there had been no change in any of the previoiusly mentioned incidents.
I talked to another young girl at the same address who I think must be the owner of Yager. She seemed very uncaring and mumbled that her puppy was a dumb dog. I told her that she is that puppies mommy right now and she had better watch her baby or he was going to grow up and think that this neighborhood is his territory and then there would be trouble.
I tried to explain that pit bulls got a bad wrap from the people that raise them and that if she would keep an eye on him and train him he would probably grow up to be a pretty good dog but if not she was asking for trouble and fines and maybe even jail tiem depending on what her dog had done, I told her that I was not trying to be mean but that I was concerned about the puppies.
This was two weeks ago and nothing has changed. Yesterday Maylee ran off with my dogs watering bowl again which by the way is about $20.00 to replace because she not only ran off with the bowl but she broke the bottle that is part of the automatic watering system.
I hate to see these puppies get the same bad wrap that many pit bulls get but the way it is heading that is exactly what is going to happen. Not only that but if they do get territorial they just might fight with my dogs who are enclosed on our property with an Invisible Fence. Right now they play together but who knows what will happen to pit bulls that are allowed to run wild.
I called animal control to please come and talk to the owners about this. I feel guilty for doing this but I tried to handle it on my own and nothing happened.
These puppies are about 6 months old and not neutered ot spayed. Maylee has her tags but Yager does not. I have a feeling that the owner being so young does not have the money to get her dog vaccinated for rabies and get his tags. My feeling is that if she can't afford to take care of this puppy she does not deserve to keep him.
The bottom line is I already raised my puppies and went through the digging and chewing phase and I don't think I should have to go through this again with someone else's puppies.
I need some feed back on this. Let me know your feelings please.
