Is it a wire crate? I've seen a few dogs Houdini their way out of those.

its very hard to open and close it takes a lot of effort

shes crate trained since she was tiny and 85 pounds I could see maybe a cat getting out but a 85 pound dog? Shes aggressive to strangers in her crate if i am not there specially.

Did you forget to put the dog in there??
...and I have done that before!!! I have put in fresh water & treats, shut & locked the kennel and left the house....never putting the dog inside.

NO I remember clearly locking her in there before i went! I made sure of it because i knew she would get in the cats litter and her and the cat are not getting along and i remember taking her down and locking her in!

thats whats bugging me because i remember locking her well before i left it was only a couple of hours but I remember it clear no doubt


she was in there watching me before i left, i fed the cat also while she was locked up

My dog can easily open crates like that. All they have to do is paw at the latch for awhile. But it is weird that it was locked. Were both latches locked? She can open the bottom and then shove her way out.
My pup can do that. I use a carabiner at the bottom...

the bottom has a tray/pad


she never attempted to get out of a crate she loves them

THey never came by in weeks and i have not met them, I have their old mail here they didnt take that either.

Why would they go downstairs let an angry german shepherd out of its crate and then lock it up? Just be insane.

The locks are changed but my window was not locked

none of my stuff is moved or touched tho


I have seen people she did not know go near her crate and she got very nasty, ALso shes super territorial. It would be insane to let a dog like her out or bring ur hand near the crate she would probably snap at it.

Man, that is crazy. I know crafy dogs can break out of those crates, but locking it up again? That is what is confusing me... does she have any marks or scrapes or nicks on her body at all? Fur rubbed off?
