Thanks everyone. Actually, I took this picture at the dog park. His owners live next door to the park and he is kept locked in a small cage every day of his life. So the people who visit the park went over and asked if they could let him out while they were at the park and let him play with the other dogs. So he gets to play in the park everyday and has become the "park dog". Thought that was really nice of the folk that visit the park. He is now one very content dog.
We can only hope so:smile:, and I really need to keep my mouth shut as this type of treatment to any animal just infuriates me... ...I will also never understand why people have pets then lock them in a cage. This dog's cage is on the side of the house too so it is not even as if he can see his owners going about their business. Very sad. I have a feeling though that one of the park tenants is going to try and adopt him. Hope it works out because he is just the sweetest dog.
