Whooooo broke the fence????
I don't know if this is the correct place to put this, but I need some opinions.
I have a 2 year old, 70 lb male german shepherd, and a 15 week old, 35 lb german shepherd. This morning, at 9am, my puppy woke me up to let him go potty. I had taken 3 Benadryl at 2am so I was still sleepy so I let him go out and run around the backyard. At 11am, my doorbell rang and it was Animal Control. They said they had gotten a call about my two dogs "who are reported to always be running the streets" (NEVER HAVE MY DOGS RUN ANY KIND OF STREET!) and we went into my backyard and we found Bender, my 15 week old puppy. We also found a 2x2 foot hole at the bottom of the fence that separates ours and the back neighbors yards. My back neighbor has a 3 year old very hyper chocolate lab who is stuck outside all day, as an outside dog. He was nowhere to be seen.
Apparently his dog digs because a couple months ago, a hole appeared in the dirt under the same exact spot where the fence is now broken. My neighbor placed a bag of cement over the hole to keep his dog from digging there.
So, I sent my boyfriend to go talk to this guy who has always been a ... female hygiene product, and the guy cussed out my boyfriend saying MY dog did this. My puppy is goofy and NOT strong enough to rip apart a **** fence, and he has never shown any interest in this fence. He usually runs around for 5 minutes then goes to sleep on our huge covered patio. His dog, however, loves to run the fenceline with my older dog and they stick their noses where the hole used to be and play through the fence. The kicker is though, my older dog didn't go outside even till noon! Just the puppy. Anyways, he is threatening to do something to our dogs if they go to his side of the yard and he refuses to fix the fence because he swears up and down it was MY dog, not his 80lb chocolate lab who is left outside all day and barks.
All the wood chips are on his side of the fence. Nothing on mine. Which to me is indicative of his dog digging and ripping apart the fence because dogs throw the dirt UNDER them and behind them. My puppy can't even pull me if I stop moving and he is on a leash, much less move a 60lb bag of cement of the other side of the fence. He is not strong enough at all. Lastly, the way the wood is broken is indicative of it being pulled inwards towards his yard, not like a puppy who would have snapped it into our yard. Anyways, opinions please. Just because I am moving out of this rental by the end of the month (THANK GOD) and I want to talk to my rental manager about if this is my responsibility or not. And if it's my fault, I don't want to be the one looking stupid.
