i dont know if you'll know, and my local council's website is a bit everywhere and i can't really understand it..
What happens if your dog keeps playing houdini and escaping your back fence??
The reason i ask, is that my mum has a neighbour with a BEAUTIFUL pure breed staffy, but Mia (dogs name) LOVES mums house and keeps getting over/under/biting through the fence to get to mums..
It's happened 7 odd times in the matter of 3 weeks now.. First time she called me all frazzled and asked what to do, once i figured out it was a staffy i told her not to call the ranger (as i was worried the dog would go to the pound and be judged on her breed - staffies are wayyy to common in perth to be given a fair go atm)..
We managed to get through to the owner which was ok (didnt answer the first 5 times and we thought it was an old number hence the ranger talk)... they picked her up and said thanks.. BUT IT KEEPS happening..
I don't want mum to call the ranger, as i'm scared the dog will pay the ultimate price for purely wanting to get out of the heat (mums home all the time with the aircon on, so the dog comes through the back gate and plonks herself in front of the aircon panting away), but we go away soon for 2 weeks in the middle of feb (hottest month usually)...
Im worried (as is mum!) what will happen if Mia comes for a visit and she;'s not there... This week alone she's visited 3 times and it's only thursday!
The owners are obviously leaving her outside, and the dog is hot/wants company and is going in search for it (im guessing when the owners are home they have aircon and the dog is well treated as she goes to jump on mums couch as if its normal business loL) they're doing their best to stop her escaping and we can see the changes they have made but its obviously not enough..
So the question lies, what happens to her if this happens when we're not there and the ranger catches her... Im hoping i can tell the owners so they can re-think their strategies..
