Here boy!

Today, I found a lost dog and called the owner. When he arrived, I thought it would be cute to put the dog down so he would run back into his owner's arms, like in movies. As soon as I put the dog down, it ran away again. FML

That dog is an asshole, but I bet the owner hates their life more. I can see it now: "today my dog ran away...twice. FML."


1- OP was probally like, " Wait! Reward mon.... errr, I mean dog come back!

Maybe the owner is abusive... Personal experience says that to me. Dogs have a tendency to pick someone to be buddies for life. Then again the dog could think this was a game... He won in that case

True that! I have two JRTs and they are spring loaded! I live in a highly populated rabbit area and its a pain to ensure they don't bolt out of the door after one.

My dog is eleven years old. He's been with us since he was eight months and is absolutely spoiled. The other day he woke up from the full sized bed he sleeps in ALONE and ran out the door when my mom left it open too long. I had to chase him down the block. Some dogs just like to run. He usually thinks it's a game when we chase after him.

They might have had a kid who went off to college and the dog took over that bed. Or maybe they have a guest room and the dog sleeps there when there is no guest. It's not like they are taking a bed away from some kid on the street.

Yeah, it's not like we bought the bed specifically for the dog...LMAO. What happened was: My sister moved into her own apartment near her college, so she took her bed, and we got a bed (secondhand from a friend) to put into the room as a guest room/her room when she stays with us. He's just claimed it as his own when no one is sleeping in it.

#57, Sorry you got so down-voted. Your heart is in the right place. There're foster and street kids who'd be delighted with a bedroom and family dog to share.

With my dog I don't walk him on a leash at all. I'll take him down to a lake and he'll just sprint all over the place, he comes back of course. But if we leave a door open for him he doesn't run away. I guess it's because he knows that I'll give him time to run anyway, and so he doesn't need a special opportunity to sneak off by himself

My brother walks my dog without a leash and doesn't run away. I need to walk him with a leash just in case there are other dogs around. Luckily he hasn't really ran away, he loves his home with us :)

My dog would run, but she always comes back because she knows where the food is. My older male dog would run and not come back until we find and get him. If you have a ball, with her atleast. Everything does not exist. Could walk though 500 dogs and she won't take her eyes off the ball.

Well OP tht just sucks don't u kno tht REAL life ISN'T like the movies

At least there are people who can form complete, grammatically correct sentences like you in real life!

What about the movies based on true events?

Most films based on true events still have a hell of a lot of artistic license used in them. It's rare that you'll find a film which is completely based on reality without any dramatisation or exaggeration.

What about Texas Chainsaw Massacre that shit was pretty convincing...

shyeahh_fml 19

Movies that are completely based on true events are usually called documentaries.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is LOOSELY based on real facts. In real life there was no chainsaw wielding guy, the character is based on a real dude who took already dead people and made skin suits. He potentially killed 2 people who looked like his mom. So yeah, TCM may LOOK convincing, but it has very few tre facts.

And little do you know, that's how it got lost in the first place

That guy must be a really bad dog owner...

I'm tired of all this "Ownerism", its not like its always the owners fault! Maybe the dog is bad? Hmmm? Did you ever think of that you "Ownerist"?

Actually, some dogs ARE extremely rowdy and very hard to train, even from puppyhood. Yes, it is the owner's responsibility to guide the animal, but that can prove to be extremely difficult, especially with very energetic dogs. On the other hand, it could be that the dog doesn't like its living situation, but it's good to know that there is more than one possibility. I mean rather than assuming that its owner is abusive or something along those lines.

Not necessarily, I have a husky and the thing with them is no matter how good you are to them, they run away.

Carmstro is right. I almost adopted a husky. Thank god I read up on them fully before saying I'd take it. I read that a husky owner had to fence in his entire yard and enclose the top and have fencing extending inwards under the ground because his husky would climb over fences. And no matter how much training you give them they will run away if they see something they want. Some breeds are very hard to train and even then are not very obedient.

Yes, huskies especially. When I was younger we had 2 miniature husky/terrier mixes in our family and no matter what we tried, controlling them was impossible. Also, keep in mind that these ones only weighed about 20-25 pounds in comparison to a full-sized, pure bred husky.

Sometimes it doesn't even have anything to do with the breed but the dog itself. My maltese thinks that me chasing her around the neighborhood is the funnest game ever.

It's still usually the owners fault. They don't have to be abusive or even a bad owner for it be their fault. If you know your dog has tendencies to run away or has a personality that can create potential problems then it's the owners responsibility to take all the necessary precautions.

The dog just ran off. It was never said the dog was in a state of panic as it ran.

#114, it is basically impossible to constantly keep extreme security with dogs that tend to run away. Example: having guests over who forget, and the dog slips out the door as the guest comes or goes. Accidents happen...not to mention the amount of insane stress it causes to continually wring your hands over your animal.

That dog is an asshole, but I bet the owner hates their life more. I can see it now: "today my dog ran away...twice. FML."

Because everything that happens in movies will definitely work in real life :P

Never EVER do anything to be cute or think it's cute. If this site has taught anything is that the outcome is crap.

should have learned from the first time he ran away he was going to do it again. its like gravity, don't ever hop and expect to float in mid air

But if that doesn't work you should do it a second time though right?

Secret to flying is to jump, aim at the ground, and miss ;)

makes ya wonder why the dog ran away in the first place? probably not a good owner.

You realize certain types of dogs (like the beagle) are more prone to running away and should not be let off leash when outside?

hmm, I didn't see anywhere saying it was a beagle?

missyj0 12

34 was giving you an example.

skyttlz 32

Did it say anywhere that it wasn't a beagle?

I didn't need an example, if your a good owner, and raised your dogs right there's really no reason for them to run away from you if your standing right in front of them.

55- I always took great care of my dog and we were BFFs, but whether she was on a leash or not she would try to run until she reached the horizon. Much like people, dogs tend to want to do their own thing. Oh, and you're*

whatever, think what you want I guess. I've had dogs around my entire life (golden lab, German Shepard, chocolate lab, great dane, my parent's now have a chow dalmatian mix) and I have 2 pitbulls, and everyone of them was raised to listen and was/is well behaved. stfu

Just because the dog runs away doesn't necessarily mean it was mistreated. Some breeds are prone to running away and others just think it's a huge game. Although it CAN mean the dog was mistreated, that isn't always the case. One of my dogs gets everything she could ever want, yet every time she sees the door open she'll bolt. She's not seriously trying to run away or anything, she enjoys me chasing her and thinks that is the funnest game ever. When I manage to catch her she even wags her tail and licks me. My other dog gets the same kind of treatment as the one that runs away and he doesn't even think about going too far away from the house. It depends on the dog, really.

14, 38, 55, 65... you can't impose your opinion and it's useless to be frustrated about that, especially in this community. people see this and tend to troll you, make you look like a fool, and then one of those almighty commenters like doc or pleonasm appears and finish you. you don't own a pink tie, do you ?

dan_in_wi, good för you that your dogs are trained. But NONE of your breeds are hunting dogs. You do realize that for example hunting dogs will probably not obey if they catch the scent of a wild animal that interests it, or if something else triggers their hunting instincts? It's just natural for them. Same goes with other independent breeds.

oh man, I love getting a rise out of all you idiots over something so useless, you probably don't even own dogs... thanks for making my day, fyl's.

And now you make assuptions because you have nothing more to say. I have lived with dogs all my life, and now I have a dog of my own. He's 8 months old and capable of walking without a leash everywhere, including the city. He's taught to stay right beside me even when there's other dogs around, cars and ambulances making noises, people running or cycling past etc. So what about you, what is it that makes you so good when you seemingly don't even know there's difference between breeds?

I also live in the city, and my pitbulls do the same as your dog does... my uncle also breeds, sells, and trains blue tick hounds for coon and bear hunting in northern Wisconsin. His wife trained dogs on the New York police department and I've been able to work with her and learn multiple training tips from her regardless of the way to "assume" that I know nothing of different breeds

Seems like you don't since you say stuff without having the experience of it. You can't think that all breeds obey just like that, especially when they're bred to take care of themselves. Whatever training tips you've learned doesn't matter. I don't see why you think it would matter at all in a question like this. Your dogs are still no hunting breeds, or other breed with strong instincts of something similar.

Guys, stop arguing. Neither of you is going to convince the other, so can't you just agree to disagree?

Dan_in_wi - Every single breed you've listed that you've owned is notorious for being easy to train. More than half of them are service animal breeds. Do you have any idea how easy those are you train and how well they naturally listen? Tell me more about what a good dog master you are, dumb ass.

I was fine with #96 said until this dumb ass had to stick their nose where it didn't belong, I never said I was a dog master... and apparently you've never had to work with a coon hound and teach them to track a scent so why don't you stfu?

113- I think it would be best for everyone if you just stopped commenting now.

I understand where you come from. I too think its our fault. But some people are just bad at training dogs and many dogs are difficult and people may not have trained them at the right time . Like if you get the puppy training right uour halfway there . Or may have no money to train thier dogs

113, it's a public forum; you can't get upset over someone "sticking their nose where it doesn't belong." Also, telling people to stfu won't help you either. You have your opinion, other people have theirs. Just leave it at that.

127, you don't need money to train a dog :>
