Pharaoh, a German Shepherd, was recovering from surgery at a Long Island, NY vet’s office when he must have decided that he’d had enough and just wanted to go home so he proceeded to work on doing just that.  First he had to break out of his cage, a cage described as “state of the art” with a catch I’ve seen people fight to open, then he had to make it to the door and out.

The door to the outside was locked with a deadbolt and it took Pharaoh only a few seconds to mange the deadbolt and turn the twist knob then he was outside.  He still wasn’t free though, there was a very tall latch fence.  With a swipe of his paw he managed to unlatch the gate and then he was free and found himself wandering.

It wasn’t until 24 hours later that a jogger found the escape artist a few miles from the vet office in a park still wearing his surgical cone.  He was tired but otherwise safe after having navigated busy roads and dogded traffic trying to find his way home to his family in South Beach where he’s since been reunited.

Wow, if Pharaoh could talk I bet he’d have quite a story to tell!  And you thought you didn’t like doctors!  Pretty amazing feat for one of our four-legged furry friends, very happy it has a happy ending. 🙂
