Was that video edited by a seven-year-old with ADD? WTF?

Good to know it wasn't just me.  Also, Australian shepherds are smart dogs.

I've seen some pretty god dog escape clips, and that was not one of them.

That's one smart dog. "I need a family, guess I'll go find one".

I expect to see "Houdini Dog wants steak, gets it out of the fridge his damn self" in about two weeks.

Subby, you cannot have a Two-step TaDa.
You need at least three for that to work.

That dog is smarter than most Australians I know.

Okay, now that was pretty damn cool. Good he's finding his forever home.

That is goddamned amazing.  Beagles are absurdly wriggly little bastards, easy to forget that when you haven't seen one in a while.  A lot of them can work lever-based doorknobs above their height, too.

Yes they are, but I have no idea what breed that Houdini dog actually was. Looks like mom may have been an Australian blue heeler, and not at all fussy about what dad was. He certainly look like a purebred anything.

I hope he likes his new home, because I figure if he doesn't, they'll have trouble getting him to stay there.

And like most hounds, they have no conscience. Most dogs feel shame and want to please you. Beagles do not give a crap.

mbillips: beagles were bred to be workers, not companions, so maybe that explains it.  but they're such cuties!  a hound, in a lap dog package.  they even bay instead of barking.  so much yay!
as for the article, what a clever guy, good for him.  the smarts don't surprise me as much as the initiative. poor old guys mostly figure 'two-legs knows best' and wait around hoping for a new home.  but this one took his fate in his own paws.  the more we learn about animals, the smarter they turn out to be.
i feel like that sentence was poorly constructed.
our neighborhood escapist was a border collie from down the street.  his folks built their fence higher and higher, but when Rocky felt like a stroll, he'd go for one, and no barrier stopped him.  and that's why we loved him.

Had a gerbil named Houdini once for similar reasons. No cage would hold him unless you reinforced the air holes with steel washers.

Tried to crate train a Beagle puppy and failed miserably. Small plastic crates would get shaken to the point the door would come off, the large metal wire crate were the same. Then tried to block her into the kitchen, would jump baby gates and would even escape double height baby gates. Ended up giving up and lettering her have the house. The good thing was if she escaped the yard she didn't make it far, one occasion she jumped in a neighbors car for a ride, 2 other times the Beagle nose kicked in and found her sniffing in the neighbors lawns.

I'm not sure about shame but mine was a people pleaser. If I got frustrated and yelled (not at her) she would run to me so try and cheer me up, good dog parks for her were an opportunity to get strangers to pay attention to and pet her.

And yes Beagles are stubborn and independent but that is a a factor of their breeding, to track/hunt mostly independent of humans.

I went to a summer camp with horses one year, and they had a /horse/ named Houdini for similar reasons. if you think a gerbil or a dog escapee is trouble, try a palomino just trotting himself through the middle of a camp full of teenage girls.

He also had a bad tendency to want to go one pace faster than you told him to.... walk = trot, trot =canter. There wasn't the space to risk asking him to canter. As the only camper who knew anything about riding horses, I got assigned to ride him. Fortunately they let me use English bridle + Western saddle, which is easier than either one (no posting the unexpected trot, two hands on the reins, and I'd learned English-style).... but he was still hard to deal with.
