Hah, I like the dog ears in the first pic. I won't comment on the general state of the yard, since its winter it's gonna look worse... but kids toys made out of plastic, where the dog gets left all the time? That makes me feel pretty... iffy. We had a german shepherd for all of 2 weeks ( my parents hadn't been informed that it had been raised as a guard dog, and my sisters and I were YOUNG, the dog actually tried to attack us when we made loud noises) who chewed on anything, busted a lot of cheap plastic toys like that, I'd think that'd be a choking hazard. Definitely at least give the local ASPCA/animal control office a call just to see if they agree with your concerns, and they might send someone just to scope the place out.
