My neighbors had/have a dog that was my best friend ever. They pretty much neglect him (let him roam all over, don't feed him - I feed him, never playing with him, don't leave water out for him etc) and so for the last 4 or 5 years my family and one of our neighbor's have taken care of this dog. I do the training and my other neighbor supplies us with food and feeds him herself as well. He sleeps on our deck in his cushy doggy bed and he comes over as soon as they open their door to let him out. We probably didn't do the best thing by getting so attached to him but it was super hard not to and we had to make him like us otherwise he would bark at us/try to bite everytime we came out of our house.
Well, 11 days ago he disappeared. The neighbor that gives us food for this dog said she heard someone yelling at one of the other people in the house about how they had until the end of July to get out. I'm really scared that whoever left took this dog with them. He's very fear aggressive so I'm also scared that if they took him to the shelter (which they might have because in one of "his" people's words "he's too much dog") he may have been put down.
Any ideas about how to get him back? My family is prepared to adopt him if we can find him but we don't know where to look. We've tried knocking on his houses' door but even though we can see people in there they won't come to the door.
I emailed the shelter that's the closest to us but no one has responded.
