Sadly, I've seen that many times and a friend of Shane's treats his pitbull like that. Poor Indica is kennelled 90% of the time inside the house even when Dave is home or visitors are there...I hate seeing Indica kennelled like that. Dave says it's because he's just too hyper and trips over the X box cords disconnecting his stupid game! If Indica was allowed to be out more and got the affection he deserved, he wouldn't be so hyper all the time. Yes, my dogs are overly excited when new people come over but within 10 minutes, they are calmed down and happily getting petted! Dave just doesn't wait that 10 minutes for Indy to calm down and sadly he is crated. We tried to see if Orion and Indy could get along and have Dave bring Indica to us while at work,but Orion won't have it...Kali adores Indy, but Orion sure doesn't. (that is to be expected of male pitties though) I wish there was something we could do, but since Indy isn't suffering physical abuse, is fed, watered, allowed out to potty, kept up on his vaccinations and nail trimmings...we can't really do much. All we can do is talk to the owners and offer suggestions and advice. It's a real shame though because Indy would be a wonderful dog for anyone! He's smart, well behaved (if you give him time to calm down a bit) completely NOT dog or food aggressive in any way shape or form and he's beautiful.
