I have a chihuahua she is not even a year old and is about 4lbs, my kids adore her and she is like my child. But there is one issue, my neighbor. My 3 year old daughter does not understand yet that the dog cannot be let out without leash, so she will open the door and call the dog to go out and play with her, I really do try to watch and make sure she dose not do this. Well the dog runs next door if the neighbors are out and starts barking, and I immediately run out after to grab the dog. the first time I went to court my 3yr old went over to apologize for letting the dog out and in tears begged the neighbor not to get our dog taken away. But the neighbors insist on going to the police station every time to file a complaint. The dog has only gotten out 4 to 5 times. the neighbor has claimed that my dog has tried to eat her infant child, and that my dog had its mouth open when it was barking. and the few times that my dog has gotten out the neighbor has kicked it (yes kicked my dog so hard I had to take her to the vet, her rib was cracked) and has thrown objects at her. And they wonder why when my dog is in the back yard it barks when she sees them. Today I got my 3rd summons to court because I was in my back yard and my dog was on the leed while I was doing yard work, apparently this complaint was because my dog barked at her and had every intention to attack. My dog A.) was on a 30 ft leed, B.) she was in my back yard. C.) she could not have even gotten to the fence and if she could have, I doubt my dog could jump the 8ft to get over the fence on the leed that cannot reach the fence to begin with. Because this is my 3rd summons I could have my dog taken away, and my kids would be devastated. At this point I am even scared to walk my dog, I have resorted to putting pads in my house for the dog to do its business. Its to the point where this is harassment and I don't know what to do about it. I have paid over $400 in fines, and I can't even take my dog for a walk or have her outside for the kids to play with. Shes a hyper dog and needs the exercise. Any advice?
