Dog tied up and literally wining and barking all day and night

Postby chrissyg » Sun Sep 22, 2019 9:15 am

Theres a very big house on the Xirosterni- Almyrida road and they have lots of dogs. No problem, but there is one dog tied up and yelping all day and night for 3 days now. We have been there but they say its not one of their dogs which is obviously not true and all a bit odd. Isnt it illegal now to keep a dog tied up? Is there anything we can do? Its driving us all crazy and the whole neighbourhood at Xirosterni i would have thought not to mention the dog which is obviously in distress.

I know how stressfull this can be ...A guy I know has a sheep unit outside the village and some times his dogs bark and whine at night, I just think because they are bored or they hear something , I guess it's their "job"...They are not tied up but within a fenced area ,and they are fed and watered ...I only advise I could give is for you to speak to someone at the δήμος , maybe they can help ...

Yes, chrissyg, it is illegal. You need to take pictures to show it tied and/or that it has insufficient food & water and a shelter, and then contact the local police. They have a duty to look into all cases of animal neglect/cruelty.

Suddenely stopped on the fourth day and i could hear what i think was the same dog up behind us in a different direction but fainter and further away. Not much i can do now, just hope it doesnt happen again. If it does when out here again i will contact Aria. Thanks for the advice.
