.. some jerk abandons their dog right in your own backyard ? Hi guys, I need some advice.. Two nights ago someone decided to throw their dog over our fence, along with the dog's toy. The entire backyard area is very secure and enclosed from neighboring yards, and if you could see it.. you could agree it would be very /unlikely/ for a dog to get in without help. The problem with the dog is, we have two dogs of our own. The bigger dog of ours doesn't get along with him very well(they are roughly the same size; but the strange dog is definately old... and older). With the small dog, she makes growling sounds when she wants to play which get mistaken for wanting to fight with him. They have all been getting into many fights. They do have occassions where they explore the yard together, and the small one will run beside him. When he first came in, we were thinking we should just take him to an animal shelter. Now we don't know, because all the animal shelters in the area do not have a "no kill" policy. (We would like to take pity on the poor guy). Should we just continue to be patient and work with the dog in hopes he will warm up to us? Also, he looks like he is part Belgian sheepdog... and he's very shy. But he is becoming a little more friendly as the days go by.
