We know that dogs are prone to mischief sometimes, and it’s just part of their nature. However, I feel like we, humans, are partly responsible for the trouble they get into occasionally.
Even if it is something small, it’s our duty to eliminate the things that can cause too much excitement or cause problems for the dog. However, not all owners are equally responsible.
In this story, we will talk about a family in Georgia who accidentally left their dog outside and forced him to think of a clever way to get back inside.
Look Who’s Ringing The Doorbell
When Chika’s owners went to sleep, it had not occurred to them to check on their dog, who was still outside.
She tried to figure out a way to get back in the house that did not involve barking and screaming at her human parents.
One thing that she learned throughout her life was how to ring the doorbell, and that seemed like her only option now.
Chika got close to the door, sniffed it for a little bit, and pressed what she believed was the right button.
Unknown to her, the family had a camera attached to the front porch of their house, and this entire event was recorded.
The owners found it all really funny and wholesome, and they decided to share the video online.
In the viral video, she can be seen just waiting for her family to open the door, so she could finally get inside.
Chika’s Incredible Resourcefulness
One of Chika’s owners, Robert Fox, told the local news channel that he was really surprised by her intelligence.
He really had no idea that she could ring a doorbell because it never happened before this event.
Fox told KHQ Local News, in Georgia: I was shocked. I didn’t know she could do that.
Fox believed that she likely saw dozens of people ring the bell over a period of time and she put the pieces together on what its purpose was.
If this story can be a testament to anything, it’s that dogs are far more intelligent than we give them credit for.
Their adaptability and resourcefulness is one of their greatest strengths and it’s why they always learn how to survive on their own even in harsh environments.
