Thank you, Teeny. I have a chihuahua, and she contracted kennel cough at a dog boarding facility. She was in a safe, controlled, environment with other dogs who are beloved family pets and have to be fully vaccinated in order to be there. I can't even being to imagine the horrible diseases that she could get from wild/feral dogs in the woods. I would never be so reckless and ignorant when it comes to my sweet little Noel.
Also, if those wild dogs are running around in a neighborhood, the children in the neighborhood are at serious risk of being attacked and getting rabies. Its just unacceptable for such a thing to go on and anyone who allows it is only endangering the lives of such innocent children.

I'm surprised if you live in a rural area these dogs have not be shot by farmers and land owners. Packs of dogs running wild around where my nan and pa live, are usually shot pretty quickly as they harass and kill livestock.
I have no idea based on this and your 'opossum' goldfish thread whether you are trolling this site or being completely serious. Where on earth did all these dogs come from in the first place?
Yes, this is true. My dad was raised on a farm and he said this practice was commonplace in his life as the dogs did nothing but reek havoc and cause destruction of property and livestock. I don't know what your intentions are about this site, and don't want to jump to conclusions or say things that may be hurtful if your just being genuine, but posting the way you have does make one wonder.
