You MAY keep your animal in --- but as I said on another very recent thread it does not keep other animals OUT.

This would not have happened if those smaller dogs were safely kept in a large secure , shaded, sheltered , enclosed kennel .

It is the responsibility of all people owning dogs to participate in their safe keeping.
Apparently the owners were away all weekend and kept garage door open alittle for them to get in and out as needed. I know they are always outside. They live outdoors, I believe, which makes me feel worse because the poor little guy probably didn't even know what is was like to be lo ed.

I am thinking they are saying they use the dogs for breeding to push up their value.
Yes, it was horrible, and yes, your dog got away from you, but leaving dogs alone for the weekend with the garage door cracked open and full access to the front yard is just inexcusable.
In my eyes they are just as responsible for this as you are.

The reason I said that to begin with is because they use the two to make yorkie-poos. They have a camper thing out back with a bunch of puppies in. But yes those dogs are always out whether they are home or not. I have been walking that way with harley for five years. My feeling is that harley was wrong for charging in their yard. I had to fight to get the collar off the yorkie because it was so tight and it kept beeping. Didn't want the noise to add to his stress and pain.

It sounds like he could have been in prey drive. I'm sorry you had to go through this but those people shouldn't have had their dogs contained in an electric fence unsupervised. Horrible accident.

that is why I brought it up -- those people are negligent in the care of their animals - they were not safe, they may not have had necessities . Anyone could have stolen, poisoned them as well.
