"I usually cry every time I drive by that house," one neighbor, who started a petition that's been signed by 1,500 people, told Q13 Fox.
The petition says that "Blaze is left outdoors like this in high heat, freezing cold snow, wind, rain etc. Blaze never gets human interaction or proper medical care."
The police have said they've received calls about Blaze for years, but the law prevents them from taking action. According to tethering laws, as long as Blaze has ample space and access to food and water, his treatment is legal, Q13 Fox reported.
