I got a friend whos neighbour took out her Papillon. One day he run away out of fear (as the neighbour had taken him out). 2 days later she found him, being abused and hurt (had all his nails ripped out of his right front paw and bruises to his rips) under a bridge with a rope around his neck (he had a harness on as he run away).
So especially after hearing this I would never ever let anyone other than a family members walk Rocky (and even then I'm not 100% convinced). I preferably to always walk him myself.
Omg see that's my biggest fear, one or both of them somehow getting out of their harness or my neighbour accidentally dropping the lead and my dogs running off, it's never happened to me, my dogs are very good with recall, but you never know what could happen, esp with someone they don't know as well as me. I would be esp worried about Sugar as she's so nervy, if anything spooked her she could run.
That is an AWFUL story, so scary, I just couldn't cope with the chance of that happening. They are such little dogs, there is so much out there that could damage them. Thank u for sharing that, I think it's made up my mind!!!
