    I was at my kitchen sink filling up a bucket to get ready to mop the floor. I look out the window because a truck pulled in the neighbor's driveway that I didn't notice around here before. No one is home over there so he got back in his truck to leave after no answer at the door. He was creaping out of the driveway trying not to hit the dogs that are always running loose. He hit one of the dogs!!!! :yikes: One of the puppies. The pup is about 7 months old. When he started screaching in pain the guy stopped right on top of the dog! I'm sure he didn't mean to do it but he pulled to truck off the dog and the dog wobbled off screaming.

    He layed down in some trees and he came over and picked him up and took him back over to the yard across the street. They he tried to make the dog stand up and walk. Each time he fell back down. When he finally did walk, His back legs are all mangled. I'm pretty sure his hips or leg is broke. :(

    He picked him up and took him outback of the house. He hasn't taken him to the vet and I don't know when the homeowners will be home. What is really bothersome if he has a child with him about 10 I guess. And the child thought it was funny that he was walking all wobbly. :mad: Very sad. I hope the owners come home soon and take him for care and at least try to contain the other dogs before it happens to another one. I'm pretty shaken up since I've never seen anything like this ever happen before.

    He left. I didn't see if he took the dog with him or not though. I really hope he did.

    The guy left. I don't know if the dog is still there. He may have taken it with him I don't know. The others are still out there and the mother dog is not friendly. Also they have another dog that they keep in a kennel that is not friendly either. I just moved like 3 months ago so I'm still new to the neighborhood. Animal control won't come out here as other have called about the ferile cats and they won't come out this far.

    Plus I have no way to get the dog to a vet if it still is there. I don't drive. All the vets offices are now closed and no one makes house calls either.

    The police / Ac is duty bound to attend a report of an injured dog, I suggest you go and see if the dog is laying dying in the back still, and if so call the cops.
    **** it, I could never witness something like that and do NOTHING geezzzzz.,

    Well, if I were in this position, I would have gone over and checked the situation out. I would have detained the individual, till either the Police Service and or Animal Control arrived.

    I would have never just stood in the window and just watched. But, then again that is how I would have handled it. Poor dog!

    By the way did you happen to get the tag off the car? (licence plate) or tell the dogs owners when they came home?

    If you are afraid to go into that yard, and the owners of the dogs arent home, maybe you can go to another neighbor, knock on their door. SOmeone else may know these neighbors, know where they can be found, and maybe would be willing to go into the yard to look for the pup. The poor thing needs someone willing to try to help it.

    I'm with the others here . I would have raced out and helped the driver out and assessed the situation. The poor pup would have been better off in your home and under your care than in the back of another home.

    I have to apoligise, some people freeze in freakie situations. I just feel that it would have been better off for that poor dog to get help. What if that was a kid or a old person like me.

    Would you just stand there and watch? Nope probably not! either way it is about people getting involved and many don't! They are too afraid!:( :( :popcorn:

    Please give us a update. Have the owner's returned? Is the puppy getting help? I really hope you'll let us know what's going on.

    OK to let everyone know I did not just stand there and watch. I ran outside but the mother dog would not let me near the pup. the man who hit it was there the entire time with it and apparently knew the people since he knew the dog's names. The owners are out of town for a while and I don't know when they will be back. I saw him up the street a couple hours ago at the neighbor's families house and he had taken the dog with him. I don't know if he took it to a vet or not. He did call the owners though.

    I would not have just stood there and watched the dog die. The man was there with it the whole time so it wasn't a hit and run. I was outside with my daughter and my dog with the puppy screaching my dog went nuts. So I had to calm him down and get him inside right away. Since I was home alone I had my daughter too and she is only 3.

    I did not just stand there at the window and watch. I was really shaken up as this is the first time I've ever seen anything as horrific as this but I ran outside to help. The mother dog however would not let me near the pup and she growled and bared her teeth at me.

    As if I didn't feel bad enough that this happened to a poor puppy I now feel worse after posting this. I wasn't able to do much. I called my hubby at work right after this happened but he wasn't coming home for another couple of hours.

    Sometimes when a person is really upset they dont make things clear. The important thing is, he was trying to do something to help that pup, he contacted the owners and didnt just leave it. Will you give us a update when you find out how the pup is?

    As soon as the owner's come home I'll find out what happened.

    If it seemed like I didn't care or that I just stood there and watched the dog suffer, that's not the truth. I tried to help but because the other dogs wouldn't allow me close enough I really couldn't. It's one thing to have 1 mean mama dog growling at you but when you have the mama and 4 others, it's a little scary. I was so upset and shocked after seeing this. I probably shouldn't have posted until I calmed down but being that upset I needed to talk. I called my hubby at work but he couldn't talk long. But seeing that everyone thought I just stood there and did nothing and let the man leave the dog in the yard to die, made it worse. If I left out information in my posts, I'm sorry that what I said made everything think I would do that. If he would have been with me he may have died. I wouldn't have been able to get him to a vet until almost 4 hours after it happened. This man had the ability to get him to a vet alot quicker than I could have.
    I just moved into this neighborhood a little over 3 months ago. None of the people around here really know me. When I noticed the guy and talked to him, he didn't want to tell me anything. He knew i was the person who came out there when it happened but he wouldn't really tell me anything. I don't even know the neighbors all that well but I will be sure to talk to them as soon as they get back and find out if he's ok.

    Thank you Momof7. I've never seen anything at all close to this in my life. I'm still shaken up and it's been hours since it happened. I can't sleep and everytime I try I hear those screams that poor little guy made. It's hard and I feel so bad.

    I'm sorry if I came off as sounding like I thought you wouldnt help. It makes me angry that the owner's of these dogs left them running around while they were away! What was they thinking?! Now because of it, this man has to be upset over his running over the pup, and you are upset by what you seen and heard, it all could have been avoided had they had them in a fenced in area.
    I hope the pup will be ok, let us know when you find out anything.
