How to handle a dog in the neighborhood?

“There is a family on our street who either leave their dog tied on their front porch for hours on end, with him barking literally all day and night, or worse, leave him unleashed running around the neighborhood, sitting in the street, or defecating on neighbors’ lawns. I’ve told the family before that the dog went the bathroom on my lawn, and they didn’t seem concerned, so I don’t think talking to them is going to help. They don’t really bother trying to get him out of the street, and leave him out barking in the middle of the night. They’re not really committing animal cruelty, and I think reporting them would be a little extreme. But obviously the little dog is miserable, and I’m sick of cleaning up after him. Any suggestions how to handle? Thanks!”
