In a viral video footage that is fascinating many on the internet, a dog was forced to ring the doorbell to get her owners’ attention after accidentally getting locked out of the house.
The unusual moment was captured on a doorbell-cam outside the Fox family home in McDonough in Georgia, U.S.
In the clip, the family’s dog, named Chika, suddenly pops up from the bottom of the screen and can be seen frantically moving around the camera and sniffing it. The Labrador-mix then uses her snout to push the door buzzer and the doorbell can be heard ringing clearly in the background.
Chika is then seen looking around for a few seconds before moving to the porch to keep watch while she waits to be let in.
A noise in the distance distracts her, so she runs off the porch hurriedly but later returns and goes back to the doorbell, when she realizes her first attempt has failed.
Chika tries ringing the doorbell again, this time hitting it with her paw. She then takes a few steps back and patiently waits to be let in.
All this took place in the early hours, at around 2.18am, as logged by the doorbell camera’s time display.
The clever dog’s owners, Robert Fox, Angelia Fox and their son Gavin Cooper, had all been asleep at the time.
Robert had accidentally left Chika outside when he was locking up for the evening. Fortunately, Chika knew how to go about her predicament. Robert eventually heard the doorbell and woke up to find his pet waiting on the porch.
What a clever dog Chika is!
