Its hard to believe
Next door but one there is a ruin of a house, barn and some kind of stables, all are falling apart.
The person that owns this ruin has probably been evicted from the house he has rented for the past 3 years and had dumped all his rubbish in the barn and around it. This afternoon I discovered he had also left his dog locked in one of these stables which was probably used to house 1 pig or a goat, definitely not big enough for a horse. The poor dog had no water, could only look through a grid at the bottom of the door with no other light. He has probably been left there for days with someone coming to feed him as there are about 8-9 empty dog food tins outside the door and thats the amount of days since his owner moved out of the house.
We called the police, they were here in about half an hour and when they saw where the dog was, broke the lock and took him out and after several phone calls arranged for him to go to a dogs rescue home in the next town.
It was heartbreaking for us to see this dog locked in the stable, but as hard as it was we must not take him out because then he becomes our responsibility, the dog, named Bruno, knows us because he used to break loose from his kennel and come straight down to us until his owner made the kennel escape proof.
The 2 policemen were both dog friendly and one was able to calm Bruno quite well until we went anywhere near then he wanted to get near to us and almost knock us over in his excitement, he is an uncontrollable dog , understands sit and thats about all.
After seeing the state of the place where Bruno was imprisoned the policemen told Hans to ring the authorities tomorrow to order him to clear the rubbish which includes 4 cars 2 small lorries, a trailer and a Crain thing. Inside the barn goodness knows what is in there they brought no end of lorry loads of stuff here from the other house. We have no idea what will happen when someone goes to feed him tomorrow and finds him missing. We don't even know the owners surname only his Christian name, but one of the cars left there has a numberplate still on it so the police will soon find out his name, but then the detective work of where he is will start. The bloke did tell me which town he was living in, but that was all.
How can people treat an animal they are supposed to love like that beats me.

We learn something new every day.
