Today, my mom and I got the answer to the question, "Is our dog really dumb enough to jump out of the window of a moving vehicle?" The answer: Yes. FML
BasketGhost tells us more :
Hey! Just to start, my dog is absolutely fine. So, we think she may have stepped on the button to lower the window without us realizing before it was too late. No worries, though we were driving fairly slowly after just pulling out of the school parking lot. For anyone wondering the breed, she is a beagle!

I agree with you #1. OP got a big YDI from me. You never leave it up to a dog to know better and not jump out a window of a moving vehicle. You are responsible for them and their well being and what happens. You should not have put the window down far enough for it to jump out of. I feel sorry for your dog, it's your job to keep them safe and stop them from hurting themselves and you didn't do too good of a job at that. Cars are not natural enemies to dogs that's also why you don't trust them not to run out in front of one and get hit, but you always keep them on a lease or should be anyways. From reading your post and how "smart" you think your dog "should be" you may not even do that!

I saw a dog jump out of a truck window and hit the curb because the window was open too far and the driver wasn't paying attention. Just because it's cute your dog is hanging their head out of the window and slobbering everywhere doesn't mean it's safe by any means. Make sure your dog is gonna be safe if you take them with you in a vehicle!

I once thought my dog was lost when he actually got trapped in my walk-in closet. He didn't bark for hours until I went to take a shower after hunting in my neighborhood for him. Nearly gave me a heart attack.

Unless really well trained, dogs just act on impulse. I hope your pooch is ok, and you should strap him in from now on. They have belts made for dogs, or you could hold his(her?) leash.
