The newly adopted dog Bailey is now back at home after going missing and then wandering back to a familiar place for her. 

El Paso Texas

Dogs have much more intelligence than we give them credit for. This lost dog was able to use her skills to find her way to a safe place.

Back in January, a rescue dog named Bailey was adopted from the Animal Rescue League of El Paso. Not too long after her adoption, she went missing from her new home.

Bailey's parents were worried about her disappearance, so they contacted the Texas shelter they adopted her from asking for help.

The Shelter Takes Action

The shelter took to social media, making locals aware to keep an eye out for the wandering canine.

"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 Animal Rescue League of El Paso posted on Jan. 29, along with several photos of Bailey.

It didn't take long for people to look outside and report sightings of Bailey. Turns out, the shelter wouldn't even need those reports to find this dog. 

Good Girl Bailey

At 1:15 AM, Bailey surprised everyone when she rang the doorbell of her former shelter.

"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."

-The rescue posted with a photo of Bailey taken by the facility's doorbell camera.

Amazingly, Bailey found her way back to the animal shelter that was 10 miles away from her new home.

It is unclear what Bailey did during her time away from home, but she is now back with her forever family after her detour at the Animal Rescue League of El Paso.

The founder of Animal Rescue League of El Paso, Loretta Hyde, hopes Bailey's return to the shelter is a sign of a pleased client.
