Our Riley escaped from our back yard today! We just about had a heart attack. She was left unattended in the yard for about 5 minutes, and then we found her in the park behind our house, luckily some people were there and kept her occupied, checked her tags, etc. so we were grateful to them for that. We thought for sure at first that she'd dug her way out, but we couldnt find any holes that were big enough for her to fit more than her nose through, so really don't think that's it. That leaves us with the likelihood that she somehow jumped the fence. It's a 4-foot standard chain link fence, with the part of the fence that's buried in the ground, that makes it about 3 feet, 9 in. tall.
She's about 7 1/2 months old now, and weighs about 18 lbs. Does anyone know if this is even a possibility? She can jump up on our bed, but only as of recently, and it's only about 26 inches tall, we never thought that she'd be able to jump all the way over the fence at this point in time. Regardless, she will not be making any more trips outside unsupervised, but I am curious if anyone can shed any light on her little escape today, cause we're stumped. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
