Lost Dog Makes Trip To Doggie Daycare On Her Own

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Izabella the Malamute has been reunited with her owner after some panicky moments on a busy North Side street.

When Izabella escaped her harness shortly after 6 Tuesday morning, her owner panicked. She looked through her West Ridge neighborhood, calling the dog's name to no avail.

Izabella had a bigger adventure in mind than a morning walk.

She pranced down Western Avenue a mile and a half to her home away from home, the Canine Social Club, located in the 5500 block of North Western Avenue. Owner Randall Fetcho was amazed to see the 18-month-old without her owner.

"She's a very smart dog. She hasn't really walked that route very much. She usually takes our shuttle, so to remember that is awesome for her -- to remember how to get here was just really amazing," Fetcho said.

The reunion was tearful, and resulted in some extra treats for Izabella!
