Default Plug gaps in chain-link fence


I'm gonna try as volunteer for foster of a dog rescued from a killer-pound
or somesuch.

Likely a small (30-40 lb) problem dog, liable to squeeze thru gaps
in my backyard chain-link fence, run like hell, take fo'ever to
find 'em.

Almost everywhere a post butts up against something (a bldg., another
fence, etc), there is a gap that such dog could squeeze thru.

I got a 4" gap between a post and a brick house. I could maybe
get a 4x4 in there if I could secure it to the post.
This part of fence belongs to a neighbor: they likely won't
mind a strap or such, but I can't drill their post.

Is there anything like plumbers (metal) strapping tape but
heavier: still somewhat pliable but lots stronger?

Any other ideas?

Thx,
Puddin'

I thought that weight was medium.

Not only that, but in most or all places, you'd be liable for the
damage and injuries it causes if you have a crummy fence or otherwise
let it out.

Until you finish your fence, you could get a trolley with a long leash
on a long line, so that he could cover most of the back yard. Maybe
even to the fence so you could find out which holes he most wants to
exit.

I once had a situation like that, I put a metal fence support
in the gap. You have to hammer it into the ground. They
are quite sturdy.

There is a clamp that attaches to a post that allows another post to be
anchored to it. Made for a line post it will work on a terminal post. Here

I've had this spacer between my property and my neighbors since about
1986. The white fence is mine surrounding an inground pool (per code),
the chain link is my neighbors.
There was a 6" setback for fencing when my fence was installed, but I
increased it to 8". The chain link fence post is on the property line.
It was installed when my new neighbor got a dog. It is the only fencing
between my property and any neighbors.
Local zoning prohibits fences on separate properties be attached to each
other, hence the 2'x 8" SYP spacer.
