Izabella, a 15-month-old Alaskan malamute, was on an early morning walk with her owner, Linda Zimmer, on Tuesday in Chicago when the dog slipped out of her walking harness and made a run for it.
Her owner said, “I lost sight of her. I was petrified. I didn’t know what was going to happen to her…”
Well it turned out that Izabella knew where to go! She trekked nearly 2 miles to the Canine Social Club, her doggy day care center, safely passing multiple four-lane high-traffic streets!
Imagine our surprise when daycare guest, Izabella, arrived this morning & came in without a collar— or her mom. She escaped a mile away and made her way here without a scratch. We love happy endings! @kathyireland @Stephen90069 @SamirAlsaraf @randallfetcho pic.twitter.com/EUOJ2BbBsW

Izabella ran right inside when the door opened, and the staff recognized her despite missing her collar and harness. They called her owner who was no doubt relieved and the staff gave Izabella a gourmet meal and put her into the play area with other dogs until she came to pick her up after work.
