My neighbor is threatening me and my boyfriend with animal abuse over our dog. She a 10month husky and she can h really difficult .the girl we got her from left her in her cage a lot as far as we can tell and I think she did abuse her. As a result she tends to whine a lot even for something as simple as a pat to her butt. We're doing the best we can but I'm not sure what to do.
Try asking him just what, exactly, he thinks you do to "abuse" your dog. It may be a simple misunderstanding.
If he is off-base, just take photos of you interacting with the dog, showing she's healthy and well-treated. His "abuse" complaints would fail upon investigation.
