I need some help on this one because I am totally perplexed on how this happened. Is this what a chewed collar looks like?
Before leaving for work this morning, I couldn't find my house key. It fell off the key ring the night before
I live in a pretty big complex, lots of apartments so I think to myself, "you can leave the door unlocked, what are the chances"
I also have a Siberian Husky that I leave out all day.
Come home from work and find her collar severed.
Doesn't look like it has been chewed (but not ruling it out)
Nothing in the apartment is touched. Nothing is out of place.
I tried pulling the collar apart, no dice.
I cut another part with scissors, looks a little cleaner.
Seriously anons what is going on?
Pic related, I will upload more.
I hope you weren't that attached OP, someone stole your expensive-ass dog to sell for crack money. Check shelters in your area, but be prepared to never see that dog again because some nigga clearly cut that collar off.
my dog is a min pin.. he went through a chewing through nylon phase and he would make it look clean cut
i saw him do it, he'd get his back teeth aligned just so and gnaw on it obsessively like a dull scissor
he chewed up a collars and a soft sided carrier
Honestly, her chewing through it is the most reasonable explanation.
Someone coming in my house and cutting my dogs collar and just leaving means I really really pissed someone off...thats pretty hardcore and i really don't think i am even worth that kind of attention.
it's indeed a creep coincidence but i'm tempted to say she chewed it.. if they start a nick in one side, getting through to the other side is pretty easy in comparison.. possible she slipped it off part way and got it stuck in her mouth and she just gnawed away at it
i don't leave a collar on at home anymore.. i've seen to many weird shits happen.. one time my dog and my friend's were roughhousing and one dog got it's tooth stuck in the chain of the other's :\
This is not the first time I have seen this. I had a dog that would do the same thing to his nylon collars till I put a leather one on then you could really see the teeth marks in it then there was no doubt.
You can see a few bite marks on the reflective piece that are not really consistent with the rest of the collar.
It wasn't done with scissors, I cut another piece with scissors to compare how it looked and it was way too clean.
I think a knife would have a much more obvious direction that it was cut.
She could have gotten stuck in her mouth (like another anon said) and because it wasnt loose enough to wiggle around, she just gnawed on a singlar spot until she was was through.
I dunno... I would rest a lot easier if I heard another anon they have seen this exact same thing before.
i googled it out of curiosity and the one picture i could find of a dog that had chewed its collar through the middle like that (e.g. not on a plastic buckle) also looked like a remarkably clean cut
and looking at >>2047223 this picture it does seem like there's enough damage to not just be a knife cut
hey, why don't you take the collar and cut through it yourself to see if the damage looks similar? i wonder if cutting it with scissors or a knife would leave it less frayed
I wish I had a picture of my dogs old harness and collars before I stopped leaving them on her. She would some how manage to chew them off every time. And it looked pretty damn similar. She can scissor rather cleanly through any rope toys I get her as well.
It depends on how loose your dogs collar was but my guess is that it did it itself.
Seen him do it no but there was no fucking way that someone walked into my house and cut not one but 3 collars off my dog without there being blood from bite wounds and its funny that the leather collar was chewed on but not all the way through. I was a wide collar
dunno op just make sure to lock up and use a chain collar maybe next time you dont want the husky to ingest that shit. or leave a camera that takes video of your apartment
other than that sounds 2spooky4me
