We live in a 'good' area with a fair number of well looked after expensive dogs. One of the newer neighbours a few doors down bought a dog 4 years ago. We'd hear the owner shout at the dog and sometimes hit her. We would hear her yelp when she was abused. I know it's female as he'd constantly shout 'bad girl' at her. I called the SSPCA and they did attend the address. The hitting stopped. I'm home all day now and hear the dog howl ALL day long. I think it's kept in either the kitchen or garage or maybe utility room. Should I call the SSPCA again? The owner is divorced and his teenage kids visit at the weekend. The SSPCA didn't seem to do too much before. The animal is lonely as the owner is at work all day - I think he's a builder. Is loneliness abuse?
