A PAIR OF Malaysian neighbours have had to sign a peace treaty after a lengthy feud over barking dogs.

The row between the two men went on for three years when one complained about the other’s noisy pets reports Reuters. The dog owner hit back by playing loud music, flinging cans of paint over the fence into the neighbouring garden, and driving his car into the gate.

The battle was only brought under control after both men agreed to sign a peace deal, brokered by a third party.

Under the terms of the treaty, the dog owner has to try to keep the barking to a minimum. If either party breaks the deal, they could end up in court.
