I am so sorry. Please know that even leashed and collared, accidents still happen. At least the pain was over quickly for your sweet Bear. His last thoughts were probably happy ones. A chasing game with mom with my duck in my mouth.

When my Puppy was 6 months old, I was walking her on a busy street. Her prong collar chain came of as we were walking and she darted into a busy intersection with cars
Coming all ways. Luckily it was daylight, and traffic stopped both ways as I quickly chased her to the other side where a bunch of on lookers were able to help me fence her in. But before we crossed, she had paused when I called her RIGHT in front of an SUV. The woman inside was clueless and about to go and moved her wheels a little when I yelled NOOO as loud as I could. Luckily she did stop, and my puppy is okay. But it easily coudlve gone the other way, and she was leashed and collared to me.

I am crying so hard right now reading this. My heart goes out to you and little Bear. I just want to say that you are both in my thoughts and prayers and hopefully as time goes on you can find it in your heart to forgive yourself and eventually find another GSD puppy to give a good home to. RIP sweet Bear.

Sorry it had to end that way. I know from my own experiences that even the best trained GSD can run off and the best thing to do is never assume the dog wonít run or venture off. Keeping them on a leash, in a fenced area or in a large open space is the safest. Some other GSD owners may disagree however Iíve had the good fortune on more than one occasion that one of my GSD didnít get hit by a car. I also would take them to parks and allow them to run around and chase balls, one time HANA took off after a coyote when we were walking in open field near a park on the other side was a trailer park with paved roads, it took me 30 minutes to find her, she couldíve been hit by a car during the time she had been running around but I was fortunate. I hate to say it was Bearís fate and I wish you well going forward. You didnít do anything wrong it was an accident; GSDís have a high prey drive and love to roam. Thatís it

I am so sorry for your loss. Reading your story just made me cry,
i think all of us can relate to how awful you feel.
Please try to not blame yourself - accidents sadly do happen- and that's what it was an accident.
You'll see him again at the rainbow bridge, I'm sure of that!
RIP little Bear
