Could you go up to the city hall/courthouse and ask to file some sort of complaint. Maybe they would know who could help.

Try calling an animal rescue. The cops won't do anything. That is sad that someone has such a beautiful dog and refuses to work with the animal. Mine is inside right now and my other two are in a fenced backyard where they can play. 

It is her duty as a dog owner to take responsibility for it. Meaning training, fenced yard, keeping the animal warm, love, hugs, and so on. If we let our dogs roam (like my neighbors do with their dogs) then we risk allowing that animal too much freedom with no training so bad things can happen. Like my idiot neighbor who had a dog and then instead of wanting to take care of it she just opened her gate to let it roam free and my poor dog almost got in a fight while he was on a leash because he was protecting me. And when she had that dog taken away she got another one and did the same thing! Irresponsibly pet owners piss me off.

Are you sure the woman didn't just let the dog go? Some of my neighbors instead of taking their dog to the shelter or a no kill pet rescue have just been kicking them out of their home or driving by my house since we have a field behind us and dumping the animal and then driving off. I have had to rescue so many animals because of this.

That was suppose to be Irresponsible pet owners.

did you happen to keep track, dates & times, of all the times the police have been there? if not start doing so. then, after a few more Xs of this back & forth with the police go to the station with your report & speak to the Sargent. maybe then they'll take some action! remind them you have small children that could end up getting hurt. remind them that it's their job to serve & protect your community. if nothing else works go see an attorney to see what your rights are in this case. also, have you tried speaking to your neighbor about this?

Why DOESN"T anyone do anything?

WHere do you live again that there is a druggie with a pit bull next door? WHY did you move there? The first thing we did before renting or  buying a house was just walk around the neighborhood ---and then check with the school systemsand also with the city hall and our realtor to see if there are any criminal incidents or reports of unruly animals in the block.And ,don't they have a LEASH LAW???  Yikes. We have a leash law in our town. That dog is a threat. You need to do more.And next time, check out the neighborhood FIRST!
