    If you see something like this please say something!! The Humane Society of the United States has guidelines for what to do if you see a dog tied up outside in the cold:
    1. Document everything. Write down the date, time and location of the animal and any other details that might be relevant.
    2. Take photos or videos to help paint the full picture.
    3. Take the evidence to your local animal control agency or sheriff's office. For your own reference, take note of whom you speak to, so that you can follow up with the complaint in a few days.
    4. Call the agency or the sheriff's office after you've issued your complaint for updates and to make sure they've followed up on the situation.

    That is true if your place is very cold that there is ice forming on your Animal house . Then that would be wrong to leave your Animal outside to leave. But If there is no ice every where and the weather is not very cold then it is oaky is your Animal leaves outside .

    we built a special dog house for our outside babies that has heating and cooling in it. it runs up our light bill but they love it and r worth it! they r a pitbull and 2 shih-tzus . the shih-tzus refuse to come inside without the pit lol. I call them the bullshihtz 😂😂😂 the male shih-tzu and my pit r boyfriend and girlfriend.. they "brush each other's teeth" by licking each other in the mouth lol and the female shih-tzu is the daughter of the male.

    I would never let my dog stay in extreme temps. That’s ridiculous. We have domesticated dogs, and we need to take responsibility for it. They cannot live like they used to before they were domesticated. We need to stop treating our dogs like we treat each other.

  • whitestar 2999
    whitestar 2999 5 months ago

    It kinda depends on where u live, and what type of dog u have. Dogs came from wolves and they can withstand colder temperatures then humans( idk why he made this video, ajacket is not the same as fur and a dogs warmth). Although If it were a pug that would be suffering, but if it was a husky then it wouldn't. NO OFFENSE ITS MY OPINION

    • whitestar 2999
      whitestar 2999 5 months ago

      Merptastical yes but huskies can withstand a cold temperature. If u lived in Texas it wouldn't be suffering either

    • Merptastical
      Merptastical 5 months ago

      Jackets are warmer than fur. Also wolves are wild and have packmates to keep warm with. Most dogs can get frostbite or at least frostnip from sleeping in a plastic dome

  • Lily Noname124

    I do agree to a point but if you live on a farm like I do you can have your dogs that can’t stand coming inside on the coldest nights then it’s fine especially if you have a bal house for them

  • Jordan Moskal
    Jordan Moskal 5 months ago

    I mean. I respect the point. But 18 farenheit is around -7 celcius. That's a beautiful winter day here. Not what I'd call cold...also, if your jacket is doing its job you shouldnt be warming up the dog house. It's designed to keep heat in. I agree with your point 100%, all domestic animals should have a warm bed. But the point is kinda undermined by the circumstances of this test

  • The Flower In The Garden

    Suddenly, i can't bring my dog into my house as she's too big to fit in the door also she can survive the cold. We give her food and yeah the necesseries.

    I never understood people who would just leave their dog on the cold cement or wet ground to sleep. Whenever I asked, people said that dog are supposed to live like that and I never questioned it too much, even though I would have liked for the dogs to have a better made house, like... way bigger, since most I saw were also little, if they even had one at all, and some way to warm up. Or at least check up on them as often as possible. Or even take them inside if it gets too cold, for at least a few hours. I guess I should be lucky we have a relatively pretty okay climate, but still.

  • lickitysplit roberts

    I call animal control all the time on my neibors. They let there dogs freeze in -20. I have no problems with it. One person has even been fined because i called. Its up to good pet owners to look out for all animals. Because if you dont they will suffer

    I never think that a dog can survive in the cold because I never really believed that they're fur are not very that thick and I never really thought that it would be a good idea to leave a dog outside in the cold in dog house at night I just love to bring my dogs inside and giving them love that they need.

  • Freya DK

    My dogs like to sleep outside for some reason. Their dog flap is open all night. Idk why they sleep out there! I’ve called them in when it was cold, and they came in, then went straight back outside when I left the room! Their doghouse is fully insulated and there is hay, newspaper and blankets in there and the entrance is another dog flap. They just won’t sleep inside! Is that a bad thing? I don’t force them too, and I don’t know how to stop it cause if I lock them inside they whine and scratch at the back glass door. Should I do something?

    We have cats on campus that are wild but the director of the honors college gives them food and built them houses to shelter themselves from the snow. They're filled with thermal blankets and she feeds them daily. The sad thing about this is that the cats are completely wild and we couldn't get them inside if we tried.

    Is it okay if I have a dog or cat on a heating pad in a dog igloo with a tarp over it with wood clippings and blankets ?

  • alis49281
    alis49281 6 months ago

    Some dogs have such thin fur, that they will start to freeze very quickly even at higher temperatures as soon as rain falls.
    Almost all dogs will not be comfortable in the cold, because in their domestication they lost most of the adaptions they had to be comfortable outside.
    This doesn't apply to dog breeds who are meant to guard sheep (and these are not alone and sleep with the sheep) and dogs adapted to very cold climates who are used to these - but these dogs are NOT alone because they warm each other. Yes, none of them sleep alone outside in the cold. In fact: If in doubt, let the dog chose...

    I remember my forst cat, she was outside while it was storming and thundering outside, cold and rainy. so i put on my jacket and warm shoes to go out looking for her. When she saw me she cam right for me and we went inside >< I would never leave my babypet outside when its weather like this or freezing temperatures, i mean wtf :(. my kittehs now live save and warm inside of my own own apartment, maybe a bit sad that they can't go outside but at least they are save and healthy.

  • Pierce Chemical Veil Falling disco out Horizon

    My dad had my German shepherd in a dog house for the summer and winter, but he put a heater in it for her and a air conditioner depending on the season. He even had a radio for the little dog. My dad made her dog house to be huge and had a “door” I thing it was a semi thick blanket to cover the door way for the winter and nothing for summer. That dog lived inside but when we were outside as a family or if he wanted out we left are door open for her to come in when ever. She loved that house💕. R.I.P. Maddie
