Now these aren't for the dog to live in there 24/7. Your friend would still have to provide plenty of stimulation and exercise outside of there. That would just keep the dog safe when he is not home or at night.

Chain Link runs are notoriously crappy (I have seen Pit Bulls and other active breeds shred them within 24hrs of purchase), and they are very easy to get out of, especially if the dog is being left alone unsupervised, plus the latches can be opened whether or not there is a lock on the gate. People can harass dogs in runs just as easily as on chains if they are not in a fenced yard.
If you are going with a kennel the welded wire ones are the best. I have a 10'x10' preifert kennel and I love it! They even sell serious tops. The issue is you will drop a grand for a big one or about $600 for a small 5x10 one.
