I feel that one day those dogs will break that chain and attack a dog being walked, or possibly a person. I have never seen the mom and other grown pup in the back yard. Just those two chained in the front.
You might contact these people and see if they can help you or refer you to someone who can. https://www.mylongwayhome.org/pitbulls/

If you want to go through the law, according to the Texas law for "dangerous dogs":
A person may report an incident described by Section 822.041(2) to a municipal court, a justice court, or a county court. The owner of the dog shall deliver the dog to the animal control authority not later than the fifth day after the date on which the owner receives notice that the report has been filed. The authority may provide for the impoundment of the dog in secure and humane conditions until the court orders the disposition of the dog

Here is a link to the complete Texas law for dangerous dogs.

It would probably be helpful if you and your neighbors would work as a group on this problem.

Good luck.

One of the lady's on my golden forum had a horror story today. Yesterday she took her just turned a year-old female (spayed) golden to the dog park.It has strick rules--any dog over 9months must be spayed or neutered and have all vaccinations and be observed. Checks are done every 6 months to see how the dog is doing in the park.

Well, Dory was getting attention from every human she could, and then started playing with tis pit bull . He is two years old and he and Dory have played since Dory has been going to the park--about 3 months. Suddenly for no reason he attacked her. She went down on her back screaming. The lady ran to try to get him off as did his owner and a couple of other people there. Dory didn't even try to fight back, just scrammed .

Police were called and the dog was picked up and taken to held for 10 days. Lisa had to rush Dory to the vet. She had to have 14 stitches in her side and she had other palces that were puncture wounds and not stitched. the vet put her on antibiotics but said infection could set in any way.

THEN Lisa went to the ER and ended up with 6 stitches in her hand and 11 staples in her arm--all from the pit bull biting her when she was trying to get if off Dory. She didn't' know if others were bitten or not, and in fact didn't pay attention to her own wounds til she got Dory to the vet. She contacted the owners of the park about it, trying to make sure that dog was never allowed back. We all told her to do whatever it took to make that dog's owners pay for her medical bills and Dory's vet bills. I am sure her insurance will pay for her, but she needs to extract the medical fee amount from the owners of that dog. That is what I did when a German Shepherd attacked my then 13 year old son while he was on his paper route--3rd child the dog had bitten I found out, and all were on bikes either on sidewalk or street like my son.

But it is things like what happened to Dory that makes people not trust pit bulls. He and Dory had played together for 3 months and suddenly he appeared to snap. Lisa was also surprised to learn that every attacks at the park had involved pit bulls or pit bull mixes, all of who had played with other dogs great there until the day they attacked. But I can't picture my nephews pit bull Deezle ever attacking anything. She was so sweet, loved the other dogs and all people.Butthese are nottheones that make thenews.
