This answer was rated:

My neighbor has three dogs, two of which are bull dogs. The other dog is a lab mix and he is allowed to run the neighborhood. My backdoor backs up to the side of the neighbors back yard and this lab runs up to my door and acts like he is going to bite me. I cannot leave outside my door without this dog coming at me. I have had to get my rake several times to make him back down. My neighbors hear me scream, but do not care. Is there anything I can do about this vicious dog while it is still on their property? This dog barely makes it over to my door, however, he is getting very brave. Does pepper spray warrant cruelty? Thanks.
You need to make a call to animal control who will cite the neighbor and force the neighbor to put up a fence for the dog or keep the dog chained. They will also fine the neighbor for the violations.
