Everything is out of an animals control, so they need our help. Post whatever or wherever we can help. I will help get someone there too or steal the dog myself. Humane society better start stepping up and helping and not just pushing it to animal control who. Which is one person and never working!!!!!!A nit Vitullo, you are an angel, NOW GET INVOLVED!!!!!!!!!!

OK we are all concerned... does this Shepard have shelter ?....Where on Mohawk st....I could check it out too.... I've called 3 times the dog warden.. and no answer or call back... I will try in the morning and then call the police department in regards to them....that's ridiculous....

I checked again today. The dog was inside, thankfully. But, it's hit or miss and most of the time it is outside and I see no shelter. I do not feel right making accusations but it would be nice to have the situation checked out just to make sure for the dog's sake. The temperatures are very very cold and no matter what kind of dog it is, it should have some shelter or at least not be outdoors for long periods of time and I have seen him/her out on extremely cold days. If you travel in the 1200 block of Mohawk, you will see a sign that says beware of dog behind a big fenced in driveway. As I said, I do not like to accuse, but they obviously think the dog is fine outside with no covering and of course no water or food because it would freeze anyway? I would think. I have attempted to call someone about this but got nowhere.

Don't feel bad about making accusations or jumping to conclusions... better to do that then nothing.... have you ever been able to get through to the dog warden at all ?? I will look on Mohawk for the Shepard...I didn't see the jack Russell walking the street today... but I intend to call tommorow and find some info out.....And go from there....

I did not try the dog warden again but could not get through when I did. It was frustrating. And I have been constantly checking to see if the dog is in or out. The last time I saw him outside was when it was a rainy but very cold day. I think this past Tuesday. I did not check the last two days but did go by today and he was not out. That would be nice if you check and watch too if you can. I still don't feel right about accusing someone but I do see what I see and it makes me so nervous. I hate seeing any animal out in inclement weather and especially below zero, especially with all the abuse that goes on more than ever. Oh...and thank you poster #29.

If you see the dog out in the cold and call for animal control with no answer, call upd and ask for deputy chief toomey and mention all the times called with no answer.

Yes I believe it's easy. You can't miss the big fence that it's behind all the time in a very long driveway and on the fence it has a beware of dog sign. The shepherd when it's out like this past summer, does bark alot..but wags it's tail when you talk to him/her. Very pretty dog. I just hope they know that it needs the shelter from cold and/or very hot weather and truthfully she be kept inside when it's like that. I didn't want to call UPD only because I know they want all kinds of info before they even respond, which is understandable with all going on in this city right now. But, this dog would need to at least be checked on to see that they understand how to take care of it properly.

Just a note to everyone reading this. Temperatures are dropping for the rest of the week. Pets can not and will not survive outside in those extremes. PLEASE bring animals inside and look out for those that aren't.
