Pushing to ban the chaining of dogs in Nova Scotia

This article in today’s newspaper reports that there are renewed calls for a ban that would prohibit owners from tethering their dogs to poles for long periods of time in Nova Scotia. I very much hope that calls for this ban will be successful.  I cannot understand why anyone would get a dog, then condemn it to a life of solitude and misery.  I love the image that accompanies this article of a rescued dog who had been tethered for three years:  Could the little fellow look happier and more content now that he’s found the loving home he’s deserved?
