Q: Do u ever think ur animal deserve better?

My whole thought I took a animal in that had been abandon. And i take care of him to the best of my ability. But I do not have a fenced in yard and he has to be on a chain. I feel very bad for this I don't like him being on a chain but I don't know what else I can do about it. I already have a big dog inside a little two bedroom trailer that is two small for us already so I can't keep him inside. I just feel like he deserves so much more than what I can give him. Does anybody else feel this way? Any thought on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Just need some advice.

I feel for your situation and am sure you have the dogs best interest at heart. However, I am against Chaining a dog. If you are having doubts about the dogs happiness and welbeing please try and find another home for him or build a pen. Just remember outside dogs need attention too. I am sure you will make the right choice. You are in my prayers and have my support.

A simple post in the ground and a length of cable as long as your trailer, and the dog can be put on a run that avoids chaining. But, remember that dogs are pack animals and need plenty of interaction with either the other dogs, or with humans. You can get a dog run set at WalMart very cheaply, and if the park rules will not permit you to place a post, then a piece of 2x4 securely attached horizontally to the trailer can secure one end.

You are doing your best to care for the dog but things don't always work out. If that is the case, surrender the dog to the humane society or try to find him a new home or make the best of it and keep doing what you are doing. Show him lots of love and affection.
