1 - A dog that is out on its own can cause a collision when it runs in the road,
which might even result in injury to other people and also to itself.

to look after it.

garden of other people and might even cause harm to home pets such as
guinea pigs and rabbits.
4 - Stray dogs are fond of opening garbage bin bags and so they can cause
garbage and refuse to be scattered all over the property or street.

might cause a threatening feel and also result in
superfluous and redundant puppies.
8 - They tend to bark and howl, especially when they are
involved in a fight with another dog which regularly and
perpetually happens during mating.
9 - They might spread Rabies, a deadly disease that can
be easily communicated and passed on to human

mate and also when they fight amongst themselves.
