He's stealing my heart

Next door to my oldest daughter is this puppy who winds up being outside the majority of the time. I'd say he is about six months old. He is the sweetest thing, and just craving for attention. Anyway, so I have been curious as to what breed he was. I just knew that he wasn't a Heinz 57 type of breed; another words, a mutt. This morning I got on the international breed website and by chance I zeroed in on the breed, Black Russian Terrier. Bingo!! I didn't take the picture above, but I could have. He sits in a corner of the yard, closest to my daughter's yard waiting for us. There are days that he is outside all day long, I mean 12 hours long, with nothing but water.

It breaks my heart.

This is what they look like as adults. Black Russian Terriers are the first breed bred for military installations, obviously bred in Russia. I noticed that some of the pictures have the dog with his tail docked, while others don't. The puppy's tail is not docked. Two of the most notable things I read about this breed is that they need to have human contact to hone in their social skills, and that they need to be trained. I have noticed that those are the two things this puppy is not having done. Obviously, it's not house-trained or it wouldn't be outside all damn day, and I have never seen anyone out there with him, his starving for attention is a constant.

Boy, if I could take him home, I would. He's a doll.

Did I mention that they have another dog too? Another purebred...an adult American Blue Pit Bull. But he's not out there hardly at all. They breed him with others. Being a money maker, I suppose they cherish him a little more.

I still can't understand why people who can't take care of pets keep them.

What's happening to your daughter's neighbour's door is SAD.

Call the RSPCA !

Can't, since they leave water out and there is no evidence of abuse. Unfortunately, people do this all the time, don't they.
