We had "outside dogs" our whole life. We never brought them in in sub zero weather. They had food, water and shelter. You don't kniw that igloo hut is probably well insulated. I think this is not neglect . Now as far as the only allowed So many dogs per house that is a judgement call on your part. My suggestion would be leave things alone. If we had to bring the animals in because it was cold we would have had a house full of cattle,3- horses, chickens etc. think about this animals are made for outside. Just my opinion.

And When Animal control goes by, the dog has fresh food and water, wonderful, but if its not the case I would happy you called. But in this day and age I would make sure it was an anonymous call , you never know when someones going to go off and shoot you.

Whether someone keeps their own animals inside or outside is their own business. People own animals and keep them inside or outside for various reasons, whether it be for companionship, protection, etc. Just because YOU treat an animal in such a way is no reason to expect others to do the same or own animals for the same reason. Just because you keep your animals indoors is no reason to call neglect on someone who keeps a dog outside, who is suitable for outdoor conditions, and everything else you've cited is unproven. Why not call on people who have their animals indoors? You have no idea of their condition or if their food/water bowls are full, just as you have no idea of this neighbor's dog. Just because it is outdoors does not mean you have more of a right to call neglect on them or suspect neglect. So far you've only mentioned being afraid of the dog freezing, when the dog is meant to withstand cold weather, and you have no idea of the other things, which is no different than being unaware of an indoor animal being fed/watered properly. Your "feelings" of indoors vs outdoors is not enough to intrude on the rights of your neighbors.

Oh that is sad! Yes, just call humane society or animal control and see what they say. Good luck. Our little one was starving and matted when he came, we also think someone was beating him, because he gets a little nervous if you suddenly touch him or play too rough, but he is getting used to playing. He didn't even know how to play catch, and now that is his favorite thing to do. And he just loves people; loves having company! There are some miserable people out there!!

Settle down...NO NEED TO BE HOSTILE! I am not saying in any way that just because I take great care of my dogs that others should do what I do.

I have no feelings of indoors vs outdoors. If people want to keep them outside thats fine. just provide proper care. To me I feel they are not.

So if the dog were a short hair lab or terrier dog with less hair, it would be ok for them to leave the dog outside in 0 below temperatures?

My husky is mixed. She has a lot thinner hair than my other husky did... This dog looks like a husky but could be mixed and doesn't have the correct coat...

I can suspect neglect if I want to based on what I see.... That is why I am asking advice. I don't want to say anything negative if there is no need.

All you've stated that you've seen is a Husky dog (which can withstand cold temps) being chained outside in the cold. You stated that you haven't been close enough to the yard to see its food or water, so you don't really know if its being properly fed, which you wouldn't know with an indoor animal either. You want to report them for neglect, when you don't even know or have a hunch if they are being neglectful. Even if they are feeding and giving them water properly, it can freeze overnight and someone might see that and think the dog hasn't had water or isn't getting water and they could be replacing it daily. I see NO evidence of abuse or neglect from what you have posted and it seems unfair to stain someone's reputation by reporting neglect when there is no evidence of neglect. So you're not basing neglect on what you see, but what you don't see, and what you "feel" for the animal. If you care that much, then just ask the owners outright. Or ask if they need help caring for the animal, if they work do they need someone to check in on the dog and give it water or food while it's so cold. I'd rather see neighbors willing to help than willing to judge, point fingers, and accuse of neglect.

I think Loaslaen may be a bit more direct than i would , but i agree with them a 100 percent. I think this has more to do with your view on what is right or wrong where animals are concerned then the actually neglect of the animal.

You have a big heart!

If it is neglect, then these people aren't very nice people and probably wouldn't be very receptive to a stranger showing up at their door and asking questions. Take a friend or your SO!

My advice is this: if you feel that, that husky is being neglected, I do suggest calling your local ASPCA. Tell them that you want to remain anonymous and explain to them what you encountered. Their procedure is to check out the place--see if the animals are being taken care of. If they do find something wrong, they will give the owners a warning, which will be followed-up by another "visit" to see if they came through with fixing the problem. If the problem hasn't been fixed, they will go ahead and ask the owners to sign, whichever, animal(s) over. If this happens and you would like the dog, you can call the ASPCA and tell them you would like to adopt the husky.

Good luck!

Honestly, I would let ASPCA handle this. They're the experts that will determine if it's a neglect case or not. I'm sure I, along with anyone else in this thread, don't know the circumstances of the place--since we're not physically in your location--to really have a say. So, please call the professionals that can determine this.
