bad things can happen this easy
without laying blame or judgment, it wont change a thing now, a nice enough but dog ignorant couple here put their young dog on a leash when they went to work, long story short when they got home the pup had wrapped the leash around his foot several times and cut the circulation.
waiting for the vet phone call to see if the owners will either pay for the amputation or euth. the pup.
the point of this thread is a reminder that unsupervised tethered dogs and loose dogs with collars and badly built fences that dogs can try jump/climb are dangerous, you MAY have been doing this for years without incident - that does not mean it can't happen tommorrow.
well built kennels by far are the safest and most humane way to temporarily house a dog imo.
