attatched to the tree on the front is this allowed. This dog is a beautiful dog but its always left tied to things today it was on a really short lead and obviously frustrated by it he couldnt move much. He is a beautiful american bulldog i just feel so sorry for him

is there anything i can do?

How long is the dog left like this? Is the dog able to sit/lay down? Is it hot outside? Cold? Is the dog being teased or bothered by kids or other animals?

Sorry for all the questions, but these are things the CSPCA would ask. (I think)

Is fresh water available to the dog? Rules are normally as follows:

Adequate water supply, 10 foot lead, shelter provided, fed. If this happens the dog can be out for 12 hours a day and no one can do much about it. :sad:

There are usually also bylaws stipulating the length of a lead. City of Toronto it is 3 metres about 10 feet.

YES!! Bring him some treats so he'll like you and then steal him!!!! :evil:

BMD is right. But if the dog has none of animal services or the humane society ASAP! Unfortunately, the owners will probably only get a warning :mad: .

hes normaly left out for half the day brought in at night it is a shorter lease today and no fresh water or shelter. He is left near the school no one teases him but he doesn look happy on the leash. He is such a beautiful dog i will ring and see if there are any city bylaws for the length of the leash todays was to short but i will check it later when i pick my son up.
