An 8-month-old Collie mix named Brieze escaped from a dogsitter and ran away. He somehow traveled 10 miles over the course of 18 hours and made his way to the house of his owner’s parents in Leckhampton, England. Brieze had previously only visited the house several times by car. He was hit by a car during his journey but appears to be doing ok. Read more from the Daily Mail:
Eight-month-old collie cross Brieze had fled after his owner, Sarah Walter, left him with a temporary carer while she took her other dog to a chiropractor.
Already a highly strung animal, with an extreme fear of humans, he panicked and disappeared into a huge field in the middle of the unfamiliar Gloucestershire countryside near Staverton.
Ms Walter owner feared the worst when police called to say Brieze had been hit by a car on the M5 and limped away. She spent four hours searching for dog on foot and by car, but in vain.
It was only after she had given him up for dead when her parents called to say Brieze was outside their house.
He had somehow made his way to their home in Leckhampton - a location he’d ever only visited by car - and was barking outside their window.
Overjoyed Ms Walter, 49, of Up Hatherley, Gloucestershire said: ‘How he got to my parents’ house, I don’t know.
'He wouldn't have had a clue how to get there and every time I've gone there with him, I've done the journey in a car. He must have an in-built navigation system.
'My mum just stood back from the door and he ran in.
'He will have been running for 18 hours. He's still shattered now. He's come through his journey quite well.'
