Ok this is abit long as im starting from the very begining.!! There is a young couple thats just moved into a property a cross the road from us, Now since they have been there they have been nothing but trouble. Fighting between them, (Well him hitting her in the middle of the road in front of the hole neighbour-hood!) Then around 12 weeks ago, they brought a dog to the house, within the first 7 days of the dog being there, they are letting the dog out the house in the mornings, Just opening the door, and the dog runs and poo's and wee's on people front gardens, when the dogs had enough he stands there barking from anything up to 30 mins intil he gets in. The dog was let out a few weeks back and run at the neighbours children and pinned a child to a wall, I dont think he was willing to bite more like excitment, ect.. Now within the last week i have since found out 3 new things thats starting to worry me... 1) The dog is a full pitbull, 2) The male owner was trying to get the dog to bite his girlfriend the other day after yet another fight, 3) When the dog didn't bite he then swung his arm right back and hit the dog so hard in the face it let out one all mighty cry. Then we was kicking the dog and told it to F&&k off and let it off the lead, and he just stood there laughing. These people are the type that cannot be spoken to, I lost my rag with him after seeing this and went out to ask him what he's problem was to only end up in a mini-fight. (Pushing, Swearing ect..) now i am totally stumped, as what to do next. This has really frightened some of my family members, But i cant stand back watching a dog being punched,kicked, By a nothing bully. But i am worried that if i report him to the police, the dog may be taken and PTS.. :-( Does anyone know what next options are......!
