Homeless man who lives in doghouse told to move on

Billy Craig has lived in a doghouse for nearly a year.

William Craig, 52, is homeless. He has lived in a doghouse behind a beauty salon in Madison, Tennessee, for nearly a year. "It's tough being homeless in Nashville," Craig said. "It's rough out here in the street." Craig has no family. "They are all dead, and I am all alone."

Craig will have to move his doghouse soon. The beauty parlor changed owners, and the new owner wants him to move on.

"I can't believe that in America people like Billy are living in a doghouse," said Dennis Huey, who works for Operation Stand Down, a group that helps homeless vets, in Nashville. "It's just unbelievable."

Allowing a human being to live in a doghouse is unacceptable. It is enabling and it is not how this society deals with homelessness. As a provider of shelter and housing services to homeless men, women and children, I would be forcing him out of that situation as well.

No force is necessary. Give him a better and more secure option, and I'm sure he'd abandon the dog house forthwith.
