Many people who have a pet look at them as part of the family not a possession in the eyes of the law dogs are possessions but have hardly any rights. So think now about your pet how do you feel about knowing as long as they have food water and shelter nothing else matters in the eyes of the law would you say that's fair? 

Recently a dog was found by myself as required by law I reported I found it to the police and council and tried to find owners. But due to the fact on how shy and nervous she wouldn't of lasted in kennels so everyone said she could stay at mine. 

On tuesday a owner had come forward but it was his mother who admitted he was in and out of a mental institution and at times he wouldn't look after her properly and she was 74 and struggled to do. She also said how she had got out before and when they where told to get her chipped by the dog warden but they ignored it and didn't. 

When she was found she was on a busy road and would of easily got hit by a car.

when the relevant people where informed about the situation know one actually cared about the dog getting out multiple times me and a friend who was helping try sort this out where past pillow to post and we hit brick walls every where we went.

know one cared as long as a dog has food water and shelter and they haven't whitnessed any violence towards the dog they won't get involved 

they didn't even what to get owners to pay the fine for not being chipped and tagged.

so what I want to do is get tougher rules in place to help protect dogs as much as possible 

rules being:

if a dog is found straying the warden who returns the dog has to see the garden and be shown that they have done everything they could for dog not to get out.

If a dog is found straying the dog has to be returned to the owner not a family member and if person is in hospital (due to ill health not mental health) 

if owner of animal is under the mental health team dog warden has to work with the social worker to ensure they are well enough to look after a dog.

one phone number know to the public that they can call directly not going through the concil as they don't communicate properly.

any dog owner has to provide exercise as well as food water and shelter.

stricker rules with breeding and neutering. 

As I said above we look at our pets as part of your family. Would you stand by and let a 3 year old who gets out of the house multiple times who nearly gets hit by a car go back to there mum and dad who gets away with it as food water and shelter is supplied? 

No of course not but we allow that to happen to dogs....
