    But I don't know that, so have to give this poster the benefit of the doubt, Cleas.
    Thanks for accually not thinking Im just a troll. Sorry if I just happened to miss a letter

    What happens when you make a complaint? Does it have to be somethign really serious? Or would you think that what I explained woud be enough for them to take action?

    I realise it's a sad step if you decide to contact your local animal shelter/RSPCA, Mumma, but sometimes sad things have to happen before better ones can.

    You have two options, a call anonymously, or a call where you are 100% honest and explain all the facts. I'm not certain if they'll do anything though, as at least your mother is giving the dog food and water. They may decide enough care is not being taken with hygiene etc, but who knows...

    Can you seriously not even get your mother to listen to your advice???

    Sorry Mumma, I didn't mean to offend, was said with a smile!

    You've come to the right place to get some quality advice. I have never had any experience with anything like this so can't be of much help, all I can say is it's a positive step that you have identified the problem and am willing to do something about it! I'm sure you'll get some quality advice here. Good luck!

    Well i was thinking that, she feeds her and gives her water...But to alot of people thats not enough. Dogs need exercise, attention, love etc etc Just like people. Like I said I want to talk to my mum just..... Yeah I dont know. Guess Im just a chicken lol.

    I'm sorry to hear that you don't have the most open communication lines with your mum. That's your mum's loss IMO.

    You are right, food and water is not enough. It's not enough for us humans, and it's not enough for dogs either.

    I feel for you, it is not a nice place you are at. I only hope you can manage to find some way to improve this dog's quality of life immensely.

    Calling the RSPCA will be pointless. The dog is fed isn't it? It is given water and shelter isn't it? That is all that is needed by law. If it really is a PB then you are opening up a huge can of worms and the last thing you want to see if the dog being euthanased because of what you did.

    Your mother needs to learn some empathy. I would simply have a good talk to her about the requirements of a dog. If you can't do this, perhaps write an anonymous letter and give an indication that it might be from a neighbour. Explain how the dog is not having its needs met adequately and give ideas of what she can do about it.

    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.
