KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 14 — A dog managed to track 16 kilometres back to the shelter she was adopted from after running away from her adopter’s home.

The husky mix named Bailey even figured out how to ring the doorbell upon arriving at the shelter in Texas, US.

Animal Rescue League of El Paso founder Loretta Hyde said Bailey was adopted from the shelter in January but managed to free herself from her new home not long after that.

A plea was immediately put up on social media to look out for Bailey, USA Today reported.

Although there had been sightings of Bailey, no one was able to catch her.

But lo and behold, Bailey ran to the shelter, which was located 16 kilometres away and rang the doorbell.

Hyde said Bailey turned up at the shelter at 1.42am.

“The camera kept going off and on and you’ll see in the video that she’s running out there, sitting, waiting for somebody to come,” she reportedly said.

And when one of the shelter’s workers called out her name, Bailey sat in front of the camera.

Bailey had since been returned to her adopter following her adventure that saw her crossing multiple busy intersections before arriving at the shelter.
