Please go to Dusty's Care2 group, she noticed this and has actions, and emails also there for action -

This has been reported to RSPCA UK, back in 2008, and no action was taken, and these last photos of Lulu and Bruno were taken in February of this year. They are chained and left out in the cold, suffering, and nothing has been done to help them.

This needs to be reported to the local TV station and newspaper - they will go and see to it that EVERYONE knows. They all love doing stories like this. This man - if we can call him that - I prefer animal abuser - needs to be jailed and fined. Period. And should NEVER be allowed to EVER own another animal!!! A nice pair of bolt cutters would end all of this very quickly in my opinion - and I would do it too!!!

That is sad Natasha, they could at least try to help these two. And this is cruetly, so how bad do they have to get before they recieve help.

Thanks Dear Simone. I know several people have emailed them as of yet, no one has received a reply (even thru phone calls) RSPCA does not seem to care one bit about these two.

I don't understand why the RSPCA has failed to act in this case, perhaps there is a legal loophole that prevents them? We had a similar problem a few months back with a traumatized, un-catchable cat - it had been covered in some sort of glue spray and was in obvious distress but wouldn't come near enough to anyone for them to trap it. The RSPCA didn't do anything about it for a couple of weeks. It was heart-breakingly frustrating.
Not sure that a deluge of emails to the RSPCA will necessarily help now - they are chronically and embarrassingly short-staffed and need to be able to respond to emergency emails as effectively as possible. Yes, this is a chronic emergency, I recognize that. I think a petition might be better though, at this late stage.
Poor dogs - even if they don't give up the will to live, they will have terrible rheumatic pains as they get older. We all know German shepherds have hip problems anyway; the damage being done (physically and mentally) by being forced to huddle up all the time in sub-zero temperatures doesn't bare thinking about.

Email sent. This is heartbreakingly horrible!!

I already sent an email, no response either. The complaintant was a C.Moodie or K. Moodie referred to differntly on two of the replies. My suggestion is to try and track her down. She must live near this address, 103 Harcourt Road, South Bank, Middlesbrough. One of the dogs hasn't been seen in some time. I would try phone directories, tax rolls, property records. In the U.S., they have something called a city directory, you can use as a reverse look-up, either starting with the name or the address. We're just bound to have someone on Care 2 that is a good sleuth. Find C. Moodie or K. Moodie!

Then the other option is De L.'s. Someone willing to go to that address with bolt cutters! I don't think we are going to get anywhere with the RSPCA if they will not even respond to emails or phone calls. It is as if, they have already written it off just as they did Pepie! There is no question in my mind from those pictures that there is every reason to take the animal. People need to do what is right. Period! And it does not appear as if it is hard to get access to the dog. Whoever took these pictures was very close to the dog. Finding C. Moodie would help. You could get more information on the owner and the layout and perhaps what happened to the missing dog.

I personally don't care how understaffed they are! How hard is to leave an ultimatum and the threat of a huge fine!

Call me a vigilante if you want to but I am sick of this. Even if I were caught I would at least get the pleasure of telling the judge why I did it!The owner should be the one going to jail but I would go if that is what it took. People need to quit tolerating this!

Thanks Simone, will go and do what I can as soon as I have my say here.
This low life needs to be tied up out in the cold day and night, he may then treat these poor dogs more kindly.
Like others here I am so disgusted with people like this.
I have always felt that "owners are the ones that need to be licenced and not the animal". I am not sure how this could be policed, but if there was a hefty fine and jail sentence for animal cruelty and also being in charge of an animals welfare without the correct licence, maybe! just maybe!! things may change.
One offence you are under notice, second offence, fine, jail and no chance of ever obtaining an animal carers licence. Avery tough stance is the only way at the moment.
There is also a huge need for children to be taught about caring for other creatures at school. I realy think that is probably the only way that we may have a win on this subject.
