    When I first got Millie, the same thing happened. I had the same thoughts as you, how the heck am I going to tell the foster carer what happened???? It is an awful feeling and I am so glad Mya is back!

    Mya, Mya, Mya ....... she's clearly feeling quite at home & wants to investigate what else is out there. Good idea to have her on a long line until the property is escape proof. It will be good when she bonds with Jenna & just wants to stay with her on the property. My heart skipped quite a few beats when I read the thread title as well. A big for you. You're a good person & this is not your fault. Mya just threw you a curve ball & you weren't ready for it.

    Oh how horrible you must of been feeling hun, Im glad she and all of you are ok now though. I agree with others, I don't think she was running away, I think she was just exploring.

    Hope today is a much better day for you all.

    I honestly think any dog-savvy and experienced carer would be well aware that these sorts of things can and often do happen.

    I comprehend that ppl get this feeling of 'oh my gosh, how do I tell the carer this' but I just think in most scenarios, the carer would probably be the first person to understand and offer guidance.

    I'm glad she's back safe and sound.

    If Mya has husky in her it is worth looking up the Siberian Husky Clubs sites and breeders sights to learn about their desire to roam & how they contain them.

    Next doors were always escaping until I finally convinced them that they needed to put an electric string top and bottom on their wooden fence.

    If you look up the background of the Siberian they were let loose every summer to fend for themselves and would return to camp of a winter when game was less plentiful. This is what I was told by a Siberian Breeder when trying to find options for next doors two that would get out and kill stock.

    I don't know how much Siberian Mya has in her but learning about that side of her might help you understand their desire to cover large areas of ground.

    Next doors are the most loving and demonstrative dogs I've seen, they are given great amounts of exercise and they are now working on harnessing the dogs and running them with a specially designed scooter. They love this so much and are much happier with this work to do.

    It is a wonderful thing you have done for Mya and hopefully things will settle down into a routine soon.

    when we first adopted gyps she always jumped the gate and nicked off ( well like 3 times) but we had introduced her to the neighbors and they always told her to go home and boy did she Bolt back!!
    but it took about 3 months for her to realise this is her safe place and its her job to look after it if we arnt here and she doesn't ever look like jumping the fence any more!

    we put an electric string on the gate that she jumps too (as we couldn't heighten the gate) and i think she may have tried once or twice because, now that we've taken it down and she doesn't even look at the gate as an entry/ exit point

    Hope it goes well, it is an extremely difficult situation to resolve sometimes. There is always a weak pont somewhere and them puppies can be real smart.
