Determined Dog Travels 20 Blocks To Track Down Sick Owner In Hospital
February 13, 2015
This determined dog escaped from her yard in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and walked 20 blocks to the hospital to find her owner, Nancy Franck, who has been there recovering from cancer surgery for the last few weeks.
Security footage captured Sissy, a 10-year old Miniature Schnauzer, entering the hospital. Once inside, she started sniffing the ground as if on a trail.
"We looked up and there was this dog just that was just running across the lobby," Mercy Medical Center security officer Samantha Conrad told KCRG News.
Unfortunately, Sissy couldn't stay in the hospital, but she was permitted to briefly visit with Nancy before her husband Dale picked her up and took her back home.
"I said, 'Did you sneak this dog in?' Sarah said, 'No, (Sissy) snuck herself in,'" said Nancy Franck. "Set the door off - she got in by herself too. So she was on a mission."
