    I would still try doing something. It's better to be prepared just in case rather than
    risking it happening again and the outcome not as good.

    Do a search on dol as there have been many threads on there about escape artists, so you might find some helpful hints.

    Any chance of Bailey and Ron forming some sort of bond??
    They actually have a really close bond however she freaks out when a male raises their voice.

    She is just really unstable with the move and is struggling with a bit of separation anxiety on top of everything else.

    Long hard road ahead of us.

    You'll get there. It's hard dealing with a dog with issues but she is lucky you understand her behaviour and are working to fix her. Good luck and I hope
    her poor feet are feeling better.

    Look - I am glad she is home but with the breed you own and the potential for problems you need to make sure your yard is secure for those JUST IN CASE moments. Everyone should have a secure yard anyway, but those of us with large dogs that have dubious status in society, we need to do more than better.

    You could bend the fence in but why not build it as a run? What is the hard in actual safety instead of possible, hopeful, safety

    You were lucky. So was I two weeks ago.

    Mums dog was at my place and he worked out that the fence was falling apart. he pushed aside some pavers and he and Rufus went visiting the neighbours. The neighbours keep a back door open for their little dog. She turned around to see a German Shepherd in her house - being followed by her SWF who was thrilled to have a friend.

    I was lucky
    1. I have met my neighbours and they know my dog
    2. I dont have a dog that is aggressive towards dogs or adults
    3. they dont have small kids
    4. my neighbours were understanding

    It could SO easily have been a different situation. Rufus wasn't to blame - he has never tried to escape from this place but regardless of who was to blame - because I didnt do an inspection of that part of the yard when I moved in, disaster could have happened.

    I"m so glad that she's home... From experience when they want to get out, no matter what you do they will find a way...Dooee is 11 years old now, and I wouldnt even want to count how many time's he's been out... Everytime I think this is it, this will be the last time...One night we broke into the pound to get him out, another time he was brought home in the back of a police car... he almost always goes the same way thru a large park, so if I'm home I can usually catch him at the other end...

    He sounds like your girl, he only goes if he is scared... over the years thou, its gone from him being told off, like your girl, to him hearing anyone raise their voice, even if not in anger and he will head for the back fence... he has pulled newly nailed pailings off, gone over 7 foot... dug under.... mangaged to use a tree to lever his up... It would seem that as soon as I fixed one way, he just found another.... I'm lucky that he comes to work with me everyday now, and when I'm not home, he's locked inside the lounge room.... I can't even crate him, or leave him in a dog run....

    I love him to death, but he is a challenge, the only time I know he's safe is when I'm with him....

    Not much help for you I'm afraid... you have a long trying time ahead of you...if she's anything like Dooee.
