our female bully is an escape artist as well. When crated, we HAVE to use 4 carabiners to keep her contained inside her kennel. Which to the complete opposite of bubba our male. I was cleaning one day and kept wanting to be right on my feet. So i led him into the kitchen and barricaded him in there. I used a dining room chair turned on it's side in one entrance, and a trash can with a broom leaning against it in the other. He just stood in the middle of the kitchen crying until i was done. Keep in mind bubba is 65lbs of SOLID muscle, but he is the biggest baby ever.Porter, a Jack Russel terrier trapped in the body of a Great Dane, rippled a ceiling fan off the ceiling. He was proudly holding it in his mouth at the back door when I got home. When I left, he was secured in a wire crate with carabiners on the door. It was completely destroyed. He also reduced an entire couch into pieces no larger than a soft ball in less than an hour. Yes, he was crated when we left.
Dogs are fun!
