Default Tethered dog

Just got this email, and was hoping for some feedback from the ACOs. Problem I see here is that the dog has a long tether, which is surely within the legal realm of whatever tethering laws may be in place, and water being left out in the sun is not usually (in my experience) grounds for criminal charges.

For years I have observed this Doberman tethered on an overhead line,with a lead line of approximately twelve feet. The dog used to bark almost constantly, but lately it just kinda groans. The dog has water which is left out in the sun all day. It does not matter what season it is, as the dog is left out I would guess ten to twelve hours with temperatures of cold to hot with a tiny shade tree to shelter it from the blazing sun. My question is what can I do to remedy this situation
