Default Stray dog

An irresponsible neighbour of ours owns a very cute but scruffy little dog which is truffed out on a morning and left to run the streets and gardens.

I am really annoyed about this as I own three pedigree dogs two of which are breading bitches. I take great care with them and they are well kept and always secure within my property.

However, over the last few day the neighbours dog has found a way into my garden by getting into our nextdoor neighbours garden and the jumping down a level into ours and is bothering the bitches. He can jump down okay but he can't actually jump back out as it is too high for him to jump up. As we don't actually know where the dog lives the only thing we can do is put him out of our garden, which is getting quite annoying now, but sure enough he finds his way back in.

Should I take him to the police?
Does anyone have any advice.

Tie a note to his collar the next time and raise the height of your fences/walls so he can't get in?

I certainly wouldn't do that Jacktoo. I'm too much of a dog lover. That's why I asked the question should I take him to the police. I don't know how to deal with it so the dog doesn't suffer. It's not his fault. I really want to teach the owner a lesson though.

Thanks for the suggestion, but this is not a ferrel dog, It's someones pet. I don't want to punish the animal for it's owners shortcomings.

Does anyone know what the police will do if I take it there.

Aren't there bye-laws against stray dogs in Spanish towns? In France you can indeed complain to the Town Hall and they deal with the matter.
(In France, the police and gendarmerie don't want to know, unless it's a dangerous dog, and I imagine the Spanish Police would be the same).
Good luck, anyway!

Perhaps the thread is misleading people.
It is not a stray dog but has an owner, not a very responsible one clearly and it must be a real nuisance especially if your dogs come into season.

Some of the suggestions on here sound rather drastic, pity you couldn't take it to a vet and get it 'fixed' so he couldn't bother any other female dogs.

The owner may think he's gone walkabout for a day or so and would be none the wiser!

but of course, it will cost! Plus the fact, he could just be one of many!

Yes thank Casita, you are quite correct, sorry for misleading people.

The dog isn't actually a stray it is staying, it does have an owner. I wish I knew how it was as the dog is regularly spotted on the streets on our urbanisation. I would gladly report him to the authorities.

Complain to your Town Hall, if possible naming the owner! Can't your immediate neighbours add their complaint, or does he just make a bee-line for your bitches and they aren't bothered by him?
That's all you can do, apart from putting some sort of barrier to stop him jumping into your garden... When our neighbour's dog is on heat, there are inevitably at least 5 village dogs standing guard outside her gate and I have to make sure ours doesn't join them!
This is one of the drawbacks of having female dogs, I'm afraid...
