Leaving a dog?

We just completed a move-out that came about as a result of going to eviction court.

As part of a settlement, the tenants who were under eviction agreed to move out, rather than face formal eviction / a judgment / etc.

These were not very nice people, to put it mildly, and we’re happy they’re out of our client’s building.

As a kind of parting gift to us, along with a ton of trash left in their unit, they left one of the pitbulls they had been breading in their backyard.

We’re obviously doing the right thing… we’ve got someone from the neighborhood who is going to adopt the dog. But, can you even imagine the kind of people who would just up and leave a dog?
