Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Is the furniture company liable to pay for these damages?
Yes, if they were negligent in letting your dog out of the fenced yard, and then did nothing to return the dog to the yard, then they are liable for any damages that result from their actions in letting the dog out. But for their actions, the damages wouldn't have occurred. The issue for neighbor is that it was your personal property (i.e. the dog) that damaged their property. So the neighbor has a case against you and then you in turn have a case against the delivery company.
So your recourse here would be to sue them in small claims court under a negligence claim for any damages that you are forced to pay neighbor for the damages.
