Missing Dachshund Turns Itself In at Lost-and-Found


A dachshund showed remarkable presence of mind after getting lost during a fox hunt in Germany. It turned itself in at the local lost-and-found office.

Homing pigeons can famously find their way home over long distances, and there have been many reported instances of lost cats turning up at their owners' houses. But one dachshund in Bredstedt, a small town in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein, showed herself to be even smarter than those animal navigators. She turned herself in at the local lost-and-found office.

The exhausted dog, who bears the somewhat aristocratic name of Druse vom Höllengrund, entered the municipal building where the lost-and-found office is located just after it opened for the day and lay down in front of the elevator, local officials told the German news agency DPA on Tuesday. A receptionist alerted staff from the lost-and-found office to the pooch's presence.
A local hunter who happened to be in the building recognized the clever canine, which had apparently got lost during a fox hunt on Saturday after losing the quarry's scent. Druse was reunited with her owner soon thereafter.

@tsarstepan,
Yeah, but he wasn't smart enough to bark out his owner's phone number, was he? Laughing

@edgarblythe,
He could have pulled a passive-aggressive pacifist protest by getting "lost" instead of helping his master hunt fox, non?
