escapees ( rant)

So my moms boyfriend works at home and atleast once a week the dogs get out. My dog is a doberman/ rott mix and generally stays because she isn't a jumper however thw beagle/ border collie and lab keep jumping the fence and go off exploring. The lab already got hit by a car once or rather he t- boned it and cost us 4000 in surgeries and 2 hour vet trips. This is getting out of control but he wont leave thwm in the backyard where the higher fence is either.
Today i stayed home from school and had my girl in my room with me around 9:40 he comes in saying the other two are gone again. It took us 30 minutes or so to find them and i had to be the one to go searching.i just don't understand why he hasn't gotten it through his head, not only is his lab not fixed but he is an avid fence jumper chasing rabbits cats/ other dogs etc.
Anyways rant over just really frustrating.

I have they dont listen. In fact they won't even respect my wishes to not let my dog beg or give her treats to often which has turned into me having to Whatcha their every move cause she begs hard core from them. Shes one that if you give her an inch she takes a mile and is insanely too smart for her own good.
They think its fine but i was just ranting cause this is happening weekly now it used to be rare but slowly becoming more and they are going farther.
My moms boyfriend made 1 lap around the neighborhood and down to the park then said "oh well i don't care anymore" and went and made himself a cocktail soo yeah. In fact last week my mom pulled me from school to go find cause they had been gone for 2 1/2 hours before he noticed.

Sounds like the cocktail holds more interest than the dogs running loose. I suspect he doesn't want the bother of the dogs. If he doesn't care that you mother's dogs get hit there a definite lack of respect for her.

Yeah it definitely is.
The lab is his and when it suits him he cares like if i rry and take my dog somewhere there might be other dogs im not allowed because it'll work him up.
However if they get out or something its a half-a** look then oh well. And he has no respect for anyone to put it nicely he is a 50 yr old teenager. I'm 17 but I act more mature and respectful then he ever has.

If the dog ever gets picked up by AC-then there will be a fine which escalates if it keeps happenning & eventually they will keep the dog, as CA is quite strict about their leash laws. Also he will have to be licensed & the fee for "intact" dogs is pretty significant.

Oh i am aware about all that my friend has a pit who is intact and has severe separation anxiety escaped multiple times picked up 2 times cost close to 300 including the licensing fee. It is crazy. The lab was licensed but all are in need of being licensed right now. That is another thing thankfully they have never been picked up but its still not something that needs to happen especially as the lab can come off as aggressive at times.

I would call AC next time they get out, discreetly of course, but that's just me. If they do pick them up, there is a bigger fee for intact animals, male or female. I got lucky when mine got out and AC picked him up last week. The lady knew where he lived, so she just brought him home and told me not to tell anyone lol. But he doesn't get out all the time, he's neutered, and he doesn't cause a ruckus.
