Neighbors dogs digging under fence found a way to be together. Many animals lost their homes when Hurricane Harvey hit in August 2017 that caused catastrophic flooding and multiple deaths. They became neighboring dogs.
One rescue dog, a charming pup named Bailey, was fortunate that she found her forever home with Tessa Llewellyn Holmes. Basking in the warmth of her new home, Bailey was free to play and run around to her heart’s content.
Tessa’s home had a fenced-in yard, an ideal setup since Bailey loved romping around by herself. She was at her happiest when she gets to explore and play around in the yard, with or without her dog brother. But everything changed when a new dog moved in next door.
Tessa’s neighbor also decided to adopt a dog, bringing home a dog named Shep. Like Bailey, he loved playing around in his new family’s yard, goofing around by his lonesome. It was a matter of time before the two dogs started to sense each other’s presence beyond the fence separating their yards.
Bailey Digging Under The Fence
Tessa noticed Bailey was doing a lot of digging under the fence. Little did she know that her neighbor’s dog was digging under fence doing the same thing. Through the resulting hole, Bailey and Shep were able to touch noses as they met for the first time.
Excitement filled Bailey, causing her to constantly jump on her mom’s elevated flowerbed to take a peek at her new playmate next door. The fence truly was one big hurdle for them to overcome, but soon the clever pups found a way to cross it and finally meet each other face to face.
Shep Digging Under The Fence
True enough, they found a loose part of the fence. It was a weak spot that they took advantage of, just a little bit of maneuvering did the trick. Finally, Shep and Bailey were together at last.
Tessa noticed a different jingling sound from her yard. When she looked outside, she was surprised to find Shep playing with her Bailey. The previous neighboring dogs were finally being able to play together had them running around the yard for hours.
Tessa and her neighbors agreed to let the dogs get together for play dates even as neighbors dogs digging under fence. Bailey and Shep wholeheartedly approved.
