Neighbors! Called the Police on us for dog fighting. Login/Join

I ran out for coffee yesterday (Saturday morning) only to return to a K9 Trooper walking across my lawn toward the front door.

He turned around and approached me as I pulled up and informed me that the neighbors called in a report for dog fighting at my residence.

Guys, we have Shih_Tzus! Who the fuck fights Shih_Tzus?

I let him in the house, introduced him to our pack, including the 3 we're fostering for Grandma as she recovers from a fall. He takes one look at the happy, well fed dogs, the individual crates they are kenneled in, and shakes his head.

He apologizes for bothering us, and gets on his radio to report his findings.

I swear the next time I hear the neighbors kids screaming and fighting, I'm gonna call in a child abuse report.

sure... we know..... you had the pitt bulls hidden in the cellar. LOL

Interesting they would send a k-9 unit to a check our a report of dogs fighting. Wonder if they just happened to be the closest unit.

There's a chance that it was just a misunderstanding/miscommunication...

For example: Neighbor gets tired of having to listen to the large group of dogs barking/growling/play-fighting. Calls to complain about the noise. Dispatcher hears "neighbor's dogs fighting in backyard all day". Dispatches officer to investigate dog fighting complaint.

Police calls can sometimes be like the old elementary school game of "Telephone", where the phrase gets misheard and miscommunicated as it goes around the circle between all the various players, ending up different than what was originally said. Especially when dealing with poorly trained, inattentive, or inexperienced dispatchers, or callers who can't communicate their thoughts clearly (which is many/most of them).

But if it really was just a simple noise complaint, the neighborly thing to do would be to try to address it man-to-man first anyway.

And it's just as likely, if not more likely, that your neighbor is simply a dick, and figured that would get more of a response than just a noise complaint. Or at least an idiot with an overactive imagination, prone to bouts of hysteria over mundane things like dogs barking.

Everybody was Shih Tzu fighting!
Those dogs are fast as lightning.
Except when they're all napping,
Or at the water bowl lapping.

Our dogs aren't outside all day, nor are they barking and carrying on. The only time they get excitable is when I let them out in the morning. This isn't our first run in with the neighbors, the husband and I get along fine, but the wife is a real bitch.
I had a polite conversation with him when their dog antagonized our dogs by coming into our yard and barking through the fence. I spoke to the husband and thought the matter was taken care of until I caught the wife encouraging her dog to shit on our front lawn.

Ooooooh... MEME FIGHT!

Okay, I want a clean fight, gentlemen. No biting, groin strikes, Rick-rolling, or Yo' Mama jokes.

Touch keyboards.

GET IT ON!

When my Husky/GSD and Black Mouth Cur play you would swear they were killing each other. An outsider would definitely believe they were in danger of harm.

But even my 11 year old can walk in the middle of them and end it, they are just playing.

RichardC, since you seem to have some strong feelings about this one, what do you suggest IndyRob should do? Let's go full knitting circle on this one....

Take them outside the offending neighbors house and allow them to bark for 20 minutes each day.

Thanks TatorTodd that was good, made my day.
We only have one Shih Tzu and he is kind of hamered right now outside, we have 15" of snow!
He does much better in the areas I plowed! Smile
Though he does like to follow me around when I go get firewood out of the shed.
Also enjoys riding in a milk crate on the ATV, only when it is above 10°.
