I think that if was a moral person he would offer to pay, you could probably take him to small claims court.if you are comfortable doing this . This is a tough one I feel for you . Just even the thought of loosing my pet would kill me. I have seven Persian and Himalayan cats they are worth a lot of money. I never let them out of the house.

Yes! I do think he should pay. If he was told to keep the gate closed, He should have listened. If he had any respect, he would offer to pay for atleast half. I am sorry about your dog.

Of course he should pay, it's his negligence that caused the accident. Sounds like he has no conscience. If he doesn't have the money up front, he should offer a payment plan. I know if it were my cousin he could not come back with that attitude...think about it, he cost you money out of his own unthinking, uncaring actions.
