- Bailey the dog was recently adopted from the Animal Rescue League of El Paso in Texas.
- Bailey went missing from her new home and ended up 10 miles away at her former shelter.
- She rang the doorbell at 1am as if letting everyone know she’s back but needs help.
Maybe it is the homing instinct but Bailey the newly-adopted dog turned up at her former shelter after she went missing from her new home.
When she disappeared, her new parents contacted Texas’ Animal Rescue League of El Paso to inform them.
They immediately posted several photos of Bailey on social media on January 29 and wrote: “This beautiful girl — Bailey — has gotten loose in the area of Mesa and Sunland Park, on the west side. She is very friendly. If you spot her or find her, please call.”
The rescue’s followers reported sightings of Bailey to them.
But at 1am on January 31, Bailey appeared at the shelter and rang the doorbell.
The shelter wrote: “Bailey is now safe. To all those who searched, spotted, called, hoped – we thank you. As we know, dogs are incredible. Bailey made her own way back to ARL and rang our ring doorbell at 1:15 am, saying she wanted in. Staff rushed to the shelter and put Bailey in her run.”
And has since been returned to her new parents.
Considering that Bailey’s new home was 10 miles away from the shelter, Animal Rescue League of El Paso founder Loretta Hyde could not believe how Bailey knew where to go.
On the other hand, she thinks it is an indication that strays know where to go for help and some love.
It is good you are safely home now, Bailey!
