My husband moved the fence in our back yard, leaving it uneven where it opens. Maybell, our then 3 year old Golden Retrieve took it upon her self to make an exit for her and her lab sister, Maggie. They only problem is Maggie is shorter and about 10 pounds lighter then she is. Maggie escaped to freedom in the front yard, while Maybell was stuck and couldn’t move forward to backwards. There are now landscaping timber to prevent any further escape attempts….

My name is Oliver Tyrone, and I just moved in with my grand parents. I have a fenced in yard, and no one can figure out how I escape every time! One thing is certain: every time I go out, you will never know what yard you will find me in next!!
Pancho ran away
Everyone always told us that Basenjis were escape artists… and its true!
Sammy is an escape artist, be it collars or fences, The electric fence around the backyard deterred him for a bit, but he figured out a loophole – digging under the entrance gate. FREEDOM!
Sasha LOVES to dig holes under the fence and run away, you know just to check if it is greener on the other side.
A double lock crate doesn’t stop Evie from pawing the locks loose and breaking free and eating all the disgusting food in the kitchen trash bin. When I got home she had a look in her face that read, “Mom I took care of dinner!”
I entered a stranger’s home through an open garage door. I ran throughout the house barking hysterically and running over furniture as the stranger, who is terrified of dogs, tried to capture me.
I ran ogg (AGAIN!) the other night in search of the cute ‘lil husky down the road. I worried my owners all night! I’m a bad dog! (but it was totally worth it)
Mom called this Alcatraz… But you can call me Sean Connery.
Ladybug figured out that if she pulled enough on the crate she could collapse a side and wiggle her way free. So the next time she was put in her crate, I secured it with bungee cords making sure she couldn’t get out!! When she couldn’t get any side to fall she started on the bars… pulling until they broke off and made a hole just big enough to squeeze her way out!!
Editor’s note: This could be a case of separation anxiety. I suggest that you monitor ladybug if you’re going to crate her as she could seriously harm herself while trying to escape.
