Medford, OR – Sometimes, a German shepherd can be a bit too smart for his own good. Such is the case with one crafty German shepherd named Jack.
Last Monday, the 6 yr-old dog was incredibly ill with a mysterious flu-like illness. Concerned, his owners brought him to the Best Friends Animal Hospital in Medford.
But it didn’t take the dog long to make an amazing recovery – and, to find himself well enough to wreak a bit of havoc on the vet clinic that was caring for him.
Just a recap…On Monday, Jack was incredibly ill – so much so that his family was concerned enough to admit him to the veterinary hospital for treatment.
By Wednesday, Jack is feeling a bit more spritely, and by Thursday morning – the clever German shepherd apparently decided that he was well enough to make a complete break from his vet clinic.
Jack’s shocked owners received the call on Thursday morning – somehow, Jack had opened his kennel, ripped into four separate bags of dog food and opened the clinic building’s doors (including locks) to leave the premises entirely.
The dog, just days before – completely ill – had managed to make a bold escape from his vet clinic and travelled an incredible seven miles before he was discovered.
Jack was headed towards his owner’s home, but he didn’t quite make it – for some reason he became enamored with another house along the way – insisting that the family let him in.
Instead, the family contacted animal control, who in turn contacted Jack’s owner (who had wisely contacted the same shelter shortly before to report a dog on the lamb).
All is well – Jack is almost fully recovered from his mystery illness and now he, and his family, have quite the adventure-filled story to share.
