Dog is a 8 month old Walker Hound, I have a 6" fence around two city lots in my back yard where the dogs go out for a few hours at a time when nobody is home. The pup does bark but I try to keep him inside when it gets late or if he wont stop barking. He is a inside dog and sleeps with my six year old.
I have one neighbor behind me that has complained about the dog since I got him home. He says his brother got separated because he was to stupid to get rid of his hounds. A couple months ago I was walking past there house with my kids and they started a conversation about my noisy dog. The wife said that she told my Aunt she would love to shoot my dog.
The dog is only out about 3-5 hours a day and the pup comes in when I get home from work at 4:00. We went to town for a few hours tonight and when I got home the pup was lying out back and not himself. I found a small hole in his flank and took him to the vet.
He was shot with a pellet gun $300 later!!
What do I do now? Police?????
