    Im disappointed and sad that the way neighbours once interacted is now long gone. Yeah, obviously i need to do more, and spend more on fixing the problem.

    FFair enough too....hope you find your dog soon.

    Maybe he jumped out of the yard and that was why their dog was still in

    I have posted a few times in here and im after your opinions again...
    My fiance and I have a German Shepherd (TJ) and Golden Retriever (Rex), both around 10/11 months old.

    A few months back Rex was digging under the back fence and getting into the back neighbours yard. Only once has TJ followed, mainly because he is getting bigger and cant fit...

    Anyway, we couldnt find them and phoned around and were pretty upset and found that the local vet had them. I also spoke with their neighbours who said they heard them getting kicked out of the front yard as they were leaving their house...

    I thought i fixed the problem by putting a few things where he was digging... I didnt...

    The next time Rex got into their yard on his own. When it happened I got around their pretty quick just as the neighbours were getting ready to leave for work, Rex was in the front yard and just ran to the car. I gave them my phone number and address so that they knew exactly where i lived and to phone me if they needed.

    I put pavers up against the fence on top of wire mesh so that they couldnt dig through...

    Today, Rex has gotten through the mesh and into the neighbours yard. Again! My partner found he was missing and went around there, no one was home, Rex wasnt in the back yard, and there is a blatantly obvious spot where he has dug under the fence into their yard...

    Ive done a lot of work trying to dig proof that area but he just wants into that yard. We still havent found Rex, i am absolutely fuming, my blood is boiling that after giving them my address and phone number that they cant take 5 minutes out of their day to ring/bring back our dog that we love.

    They have a dog too and i think that it contributes a little to the problem in that it paws away at the sorter areas (its a small dog)

    How do i handle this. I plan on confronting them about it because it is unacceptable. Im afraid though that i wont contain my anger.
    What makes you think they knew your dog was there?? He may have also escaped their yard unseen??

    I hope he comes home soon. Make sure you check with all the local Vets and the pound. Good luck.

    They have done it twice before, i was going there with an intent to see what they said about it and not just going in and blaming them. Maybe i should have said that earlier.

    I know what i need to do now with the yard and its going to cost $$$ but i dont care about that. This was more of a moral thing than a blame game.

    just a hint, when we had a little terrier, he was always getting under the fence, so I lined the fenceline with treated pine logs staked into place against the fence, your dog is bit bigger than mine, but it might be a bit stronger than chicken wire

    yes i have one of those....the terrier. foxy/shih tzu mix who is tiny so can fit through little gaps, plus shes half foxy so has a bit of wanderlust and the determination to get out LOL. Shes a nuisance and has been confined to the house for months LOL

    I never take a persons's word when their actions say something different. Ie what ever they do is what they've agreed to - no matter what they actually said to your face.

    Clearly your dog breaking into their place pisses them off enough to send your dog to go play in the traffic - which is very very pissed off if you ask me.

    So meantime - make sure both your dogs are microchipped with up to date details on the registers, and have collars on with their current council rego and your (mobile) phone number - because that makes it easier for other people who find your dog to do the right thing.

    And definitely want to keep the dogs where they cannot escape. Ie not in the back yard until the fence is secure.
