Stray dogs are the dogs that live on the streets which don’t have homes or they might even be pets of someone which might have been out all by itself. Chaotic urban arrangement and overpopulation of the humans have already led to equally enormous population of stray dogs in majority of places in the world. There are numerous common problems that can be caused by stray dogs, and here are the top ten.

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.

2 - Stray dogs tend to defile and sully due to the fact that no one is available to look after it.

3 - Such dogs might develop the liking to hunt and might ramble into a garden of other people and might even cause harm to home pets such as guinea pigs and rabbits. When a stray dog meanders into a farm land and causes harm to livestock, there are chances that the farmer might shoot at it, since they are allowed to do so.

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.

5 - Strays often live under buildings, decks, sheds, and spread fleas there. Or worse, they a stray dog might discover something to consume, which might cause illness to it, and it'll die under a structure, and cause a horrible rotting odor.

6 - All the dogs are not gracious towards human beings and so there are chances that someone might get bitten if the stray dog is not controlled.

7 - Stray dogs often prefer to roam in packs and so it 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 beings. Even though all the temperate-blooded animals can obtain and also pass on rabies, dogs are considered to be the most common transporter of this disease worldwide. Rabies is causing more number of human deaths every year and the count is increasing year after year, despite of various measures taken such as cleaning the bitten wounds and immunizing the patient right away after getting bitten.

10 - These dogs might bite other dogs when they try to mate and also when they fight amongst themselves. Walkers and other human beings in the environs can regularly get bitten by accident. Female stray dogs that have puppies will be more conscious and aggressive and so they might bite anyone who approaches towards their family.

A dog that is all by itself might get stolen or lost which might result in the owner not seeing it ever again.
