Need help with keeping my dog in cage

I have a red nose pitbull and we cannot keep her inside her cage. She bites through the wire and keeps getting out. We put wood infront of the holes she made but she bit through the wood and got out too. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep my dog inside the cage? I need help!!!

This kind of behavior is why having a pit bull in the first place is a bad idea.

OK, now to what you actually asked for - seems to me that the material from which the cage is made is not up to the task. I would suggest a new cage made of stronger material.
Is this like a portable kennel or an outside cage/kennel/dog run that is just a fenced-off portion of your yard?

A electric fence would keep her in, you can buy a small kit at the 2 large hardware stores nationwide.

Why is she in a cage? Do you allow her some freedom and take her on long walks and runs and play time or is she in there round the clock for some sort of "training" purposes? If someone kept me in a cage round the clock, I'd be doing the same thing to try and get out, for crying out loud!
