I understand your anger at people lying about what happened. It's a pet peeve of mine! I probably also would have called them out on that... and been angry. However... keep in mind that your dogs have recently been picked up. You have GOT to be extra careful from now on! If you still don't have a secure fence, you need to get one. If you have to open the gate for any reason, your dogs need to be inside. If they lie to the police, the police will most likely take their word over yours because you already had an infraction and there was a GSD involved. Age doesn't matter. The GSD is going to take the hit every time... even if it did nothing wrong. It's just a fact of life.
