Unhappy What Can I/My Family Do? - December 22nd 2016, 10:16 PM

Okay so recently me, my mom, and my brothers moved into an apartment. It's really nice. But my neighbors are neglecting their dog. I know it's not really my business but my neighbors are putting their pet dog outside in the cold and just leave him there. Whenever we open the door to our apartment the dog just runs in and won't go back outside unless we take him back outside but that usually takes like an hour to do because he keeps coming inside our apartment. Today I'm home alone and it's raining. I checked outside to see if my brothers were coming home yet but I didn't and saw the dog right there! The dog saw me and then he started to whimper and scratch at the door! I wanted to take him inside but since he isn't ours I can't. I really want to keep him so is there anything me or my family could do so the dog can be ours?

I'm glad that your family cares so much about this dog, I don't know if there's a way that you can keep him. The best thing to do if you suspect he's being neglected is to call the police (non-emergency) or animal control. Unless there are obvious signs of abuse, chances are they will just talk to the owners, educate them about safety of leaving the dog outside, etc. If he's clearly being neglected or abused, they will take him to a shelter. If that happens, you could offer to take him in, but I don't know if they'll let you.
