well, i finally called the police and they transferred me to animal control. i reported my neighbors. this is what happened...
so today, i am outside, messing around with the dogs and i'm giving them treats. so i go get one for rocky (i always do). i peek over the fence and see him. he's laying down (odd for him) and so i throw him a dog cookie. he barely gets up and sniffs it, and then lies back down.
so i go get the camera and get a couple shots to post on here...to see what you guys think. well, while i'm taking those pics, i notice that rocky isn't getting up to greet me or bark (like usual). so i exit my yard and go over to the 2 foot baby gate (only thing seperating him from the front yard/street) and reach over to pet him. i can't reach too much, so i call him. normally, he would be running and freaking out happy. nothing.
so i call him about 5 times to get him to come over closer and i look at his gums, and they are a little on the white side. i also noticed that his pelvic bones are sticking out a little more. he DOES have food and water, though. so i take some more pics, trying not to get caught by the neighbors, etc. (he still has no rabies tag, etc). then he just plops back down. it seemed like an effort for him to even stand up. he had no shelter either (that i could see). i don't know if he has access to the house...but i don't think so. so i called it in. i'm going to post some pics here. you guys tell me what you think of his body weight, etc. (hope these pics work...)
here he is at first:
here's his food and water:
here's his body:
like i said, it just seemed so hard for him to get up and walk. like his back legs were weak. his weight isn't too bad. i just think there was a slight difference to me.
