We have a HUGE fenced in yard. They just run around down there. No fenve. One of them got hit by a car the other day they didnt even take it to the vet. Its still down there. Alive running around. It ran over her paw.

The dog we got was an outside dog (we got her from a shelter) she is now an indoor dog lol



I don't see the point in having a outdoor only dog, I know it works for some people but not us

Difference of opinion. I agree, my dog is party of the family. But, if raised differently, people feel differently. I have a good friend who thinks it's cruel to "coop a dog up inside"... Because they are animals

Thats generally how I think. My dog loves birds and chasing squirrels and shit. Hes bored inside the house.

I would get one, but you'll need to take it to the vet. Chances of it having worms and fleas being outdoors 247 are very high since they probably never had them checked once they were born. Then I would call the county on them and animal control. There are limits to the amounts of pets you can have even in the country, and it sounds like they are way over the limit and can't afford/have the time to properly take care of them all.

It's cruel because these people are not providing their many animals shelter while leaving them out constantly

Which is why I said if they're left outside without food or shelter it's a completely different story. But for anyone to say that it's cruel to have outside dogs is wrong. Dogs can stay outside the majority of the time and be well taken care of.

Horrible and cruel. Dogs are family, not lawn ornaments.

Yep. Majority of the dogs I have had prefer their outside time to inside time. Unless it is really hot or really cold. Then it is outside, potty, inside.
