Consistent Barking

4600 block of Lawndale. There is a dog inside a building somewhere who consistently barks for an hour, sometimes more, almost every single morning. Not only is it annoying, but I'm concerned about the welfare of the dog. What can be done?

  • He's probably lonely. We have neighbors whose dog barked for hours because they had left him alone.

  • barking in the morning for only an hour? i imagine the owners just went to work and the dog barks while they're away.

    Search for city's dog barking noise ordinance to see if you can do anything.

    Two things: a building across the alley from me used to be a horrible slum building -- people getting arrested all the time, drugs, etc. It was purchased by CHA as a small site building, fixed up, and ever since has been filled with nice people who are either hard-working but low income or elderly/disabled. It has been a dramatic improvement to the neighborhood. So just because it is CHA doesn't mean it won't be a quality, well-run property with good tenants.

    The second thing: I specifically asked that some of these units be made for people with significant physical disabilities, as this is incredibly needed in the neighborhood. I don't know if this will happen, but I would urge neighbors to ask for the same.

    Finally, many of the people served by CHA are either elderly or disabled, so often that is what you end up with in these buildings. They usually aren't a problem.

  • Can you guarantee it's only going to be elderly and severely disabled? I'm not taking any chances....

Stolen Dog

Stolen Dog Alert! If you have walked down the 4100 block of Central Park you might have bet Griffin, the large black lab in the fenced in yard. Sometime in the last 90 minutes the back gate was broken into and he was stolen. The owners will send me a photo soon but I wanted to get the word out ASAP. Please be on the lookout for a large black lab. He was stolen from the alley between CP and Monticello. He is the nicest dog in the world and we all need him back on our block!-Red collar, white chest. Very large, very sweet. Photo below.

    I am amazed nobody has seen her. Surely they live in neighborhood and she is so distinctive looking. Looks like her hair is in bun so remember she's got long hair if its down. Please put her photo up in neighborhood, otherwise they'll never be caught. Save other people from same fate.

Has anyone lost a really friendly brown tabby kitty--no collar, no chip?

My neighbors were feeding a really friendly kitty for 3 weeks. No collar. I took her in and had her scanned. No chip. I haven't seen any signs or seen any notices.

  • Hi- I think I saw a flyer with similar description in Ravenswood Animal Hospital this week. It may be for this cat. You could call them and just ask what the flyer says. They are on Montrose near California.
