Dog runs away from Daycare, runs home and rings the doorbell when parents are away


Kansas family was on vacation when their security camera detected their dog at their front door. 

Dexter was supposed to be at doggy daycare, but escaped and managed to run all the way home.

The pup’s owners, Jeremy and Sarah Henson, were a thousand miles away in Las Vegas enjoying a week-long vacation. They received a notification on their phones that someone was at their door.

“We were both like, ‘Oh my god, that’s Dexter!’” Jeremy said.

Dexter was supposed be at the daycare for five days but became homesick on the third day and escaped.

Jeremy said that Dexter would have to climb over a 6-foot fence in order to make it home.

The lonely pup finally made it, and the bell rang after two miles and 90 minutes.

“He was bound and determined. Obviously, he didn’t understand the fact that we were gone, he just thought that we were home. And he takes his job protecting us very seriously,” Jeremy said.

After trying to calm Dexter down over the speaker, the couple called the doggie daycare center. They brought Dexter home and they came back.

His parents weren’t surprised he escaped and made it home. 

“He’s very smart, and that intelligence can get him into trouble sometime,” Jeremy said.
