Aussie Escape Artist Dog Reunited With Owner After Hitching Ride to Sydney

Speck, a cattle dog pup living in Yass, New South Wales, was reunited with her owner after a nearly 300 km trip to Sydney on Friday, December 4. Footage from the NSW Police Force shows the “silly little girl” reunited with her owner.

Detective Inspector David El-Badawi said that police brought Speck to the Sydney police station after a member of the public reported a distressed dog left in a car. The dog wasn’t distressed, police said, but the owner of the car surrendered the dog, which she said she found “40 minutes outside of Yass.”

Reports said Speck dug under a fence to escape, was found on the side of the road, and was taken to Sydney.
