What a perfect statement "Fences amuse him." I have a Beagle, Shiloh, for whom that is so true - he's been on the garage roof, his last adoption failed because he escaped from the 6 FT. vinyl privacy fence...and now, I give him monitored time out of the fence...my only option.
Years ago, I adopted a dog from MS found in circumstances similar to Muttley's and Pepper's. He was found guarding the body of his deceased owner. He was 15. He went to protect a Beagle one day, tottering down the hill...there was a stand-off and that Beagle never knew the potential danger he was in...though I was there and watching. At 17, after losing too many teeth in a dental, he couldn't adjust to eating...so I put him down finally.
These old Shepherd types are grand and loyal dogs; praying both find a home this weekend, er, today!
