My neighbor's dog - her whole world is inside the house and the yard. That's it - 24/7. In the 5 plus years of being her neighbor, I have not once seen my neighbor walk her dog or take her dog anywhere outside the house or yard. I know dogs have emotions and can feel depression. Dogs need stimuli and exercise. Even though I don't believe there is any physical abuse to the dog, being confined in a 1000 sqft enclosure - this is prison. It just breaks my heart.
