Hi last month one of my dogs got out or was let out of my garden puposefully, hes the sandy coloured one in the pic his name is bear, it took over 3 days to find him as we were always in wrong place searching at wrong time it was all over facebook and thanks to a neighbour who recognised him, he got home, very dirty swollen belly and cuts here and there but hes safe and recovered very well, i live with a alley or jenal as some call it running down the side of my garden, the council took some dead trees of perimeter and only put up a 3 ft fence, this is a chainwire fence at that and is now mishapen due to kids climbing over it being little terrors, also id like to add there is no lighting in the alley at all either which is why i cant confirm if he got out himself or if someone let him out as if the moon isnt out you cant see thw alley even with my kitchen light on its pitch black at night and its a large garden so you cant see which is why i use a torch when i let them out at night now, so its not a secure boundary specially with me having dogs, i absolutely cannot raise the money life is a struggle as it is and council dont have funding to put a secure fence up and with bear already going missing once im scared it will happen again, if i had a proper wood fence at a decent height it may also mean people will stop stealing our garden furniture etc you cant have nothing without them being stolen and having a 3ft chain link fence is no deterant so thats why im here, i love my dogs they mean the world to me and have been such company since i had my mini strokes, they arent just pets they are my family please help if you can i know its maybe not gonna hit some people but to me it means a lot i dont have much at all and this would help so much. thank you for reading if you got this far xx
