middleofnowhere I'm sure the OP has learned this is not the way to transport a dog. If not, it will happen again. His vet probably gave him a serious dope slap -- they hate this sort of thing.

Here it is illegal to have a dog improperly secured in the back of a truck. If you must transport in the bed of a truck, they make specific cross ties for this. They should only be used with a harness, not a collar as your dog should never be secured in a vehicle with anything but a harness.

I have two trucks - one a standard cab without airbags. I set up a platform for the passenger side & secure the dogs with seatbelts. The other is a crew cab. Dogs ride in the backseat secured with seatbelts because there are airbags in the front.
I also have three sets of cross ties. If I'm traveling I try to have one of those set up for securing any stray I may find and need to transport. If I transport in dog boxes, those boxes are secured with ratchet tie downs.

Dogs loose in truck beds = pet peeve.

NancyJ You are lucky he did not get killed. Please get a dog box or good crate for the back of your truck and secure it really well.

The truck ride

After about three weeks of nursing a pano inflammation we were doing great! Decided to go on a truck ride. Lucky decided to Jump off the truck. I had him tied but the leash was a little too long. Fractured leg. Doc feels it will heel well as it was clean. Lucky is just 10 mos. So he should heel good. He seems to be taking it very well.
