Hmmm....I know exactly what you're talking about. My neighbour used to be like that as well. I went over and told my friend (his son) that if they didn't want the EIGHT puppies that their female dog had, I would organise homes for them. I see how they used to treat their dog when she was younger, before she could go around and get food for herself, so I wasn't going to let that happen to the little puppies. Thankfully, everybody wanted the pups and when they got old enough, we give all of them to good homes. At least they wouldn't have to suffer like their mother did.
