Kingdom of Dogs

English first/日本語は英語の後で

At the first night when I stayed at Miguel's house, I heard dogs barking outside annoyingly. As I commute repeatedly to Lisbon, I've realized that there are many dogs straying unleashed everywhere without their owners. They are not wild, because they still wear a leashing band on their neck. I heard that this is one of the problems which suburbs of Lisbon are facing: although many people want to own puppies in their house, they tend to unleash the dogs as the puppies grow up in particular if they get babies, (i.e., human babies) where many families think that grown dogs and human babies cannot get along with each other. Where did their responsibility of owning pets go?
