This is the very problem we fight every day.<quoted text>I am fighting my neighbor right now. He has 4 pitbulls, I have 2small dogs. I have a 6ft wooden fence, then a foot of space and another 6 foot stockade fence between our property. His dogs come out daily, regardless if anyone is out or not and ram headlong full speed into the fence. never does he utter a word to discourage the dogs from doing so. Last summer one of them chewed through both fences and attempted to get one of our dogs, I watched it. He never offered to replace the fences, He does not have the insurance for one dog let alone 4. The police are of no help in this matter. I now keep a loaded shotgun by the door for when the do enter my yard I can shoot them. Then I will be rid of one or two and make my point known. The majority of the people who own those dogs own them for the aggression.
Negligent owners (who often mean no harm) cause
so very much damage. To their dogs, to other dogs
and even ppl, but mostly to the breed itself.
The local law inforcement should be of help but if
not call the local ASPCA. With dogs like pits the
law states that they have to be kept secure.
The condition that you are in scares the hell out
of me. You are in imminent danger of losing one or
both of your little dogs.
It's obvious this pit owner next door has never
socialized nor trained his animals. And that means
that they are a very large danger to you and yours.
I'd continue to make calls....city hall even.
Many cities do not allow you to keep more than 4 dogs
and those 4 cannot be of the same breed.
Check with your city codes.
Don't let this go. B/c it only takes a split second
for an American Pit Bull Terrier to get through a
weak fence (or over or under it) and kill your small
