Keeping Dog From Chewing Through Fence and Escaping

We have a Lab puppy that digs and chews up the new chain link fence. She is about 9 months old. She has a buddy in the yard to play with, but still leaves the yard to wander the neighborhood.

I need an inexpensive way to solve this problem. The poo has worked on the digging in the dirt, but now the fence is being eaten. Please help or we will have to give her away.

When my lab mix did this, we set up a dog cable run in our yard. It was far enough from the fence that she couldn't get to it, and was attached to the house near the back door at one end, and to a tree at the other end. All I had to do was open the back door, and clip the lead to her collar. If you google dog run cable system, you will find information about it. The best site was called Unchain Your Dog. By the way, Ma Barker lived to be 14.5 years old, using the run every day.
