CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A family says a miniature schnauzer who ran away from home turned up at an Iowa hospital, where her owner was recovering from surgery.

The dog, Sissy, went missing from home last Saturday. The dog traveled almost 2 miles to get to Mercy Medical Center. That’s where the dog’s owner, Nancy Franck, was.

A hospital security guard used Sissy’s tags to call Franck’s husband, Dale. He said Sissy was on a mission to see her mom but simply couldn’t find the right elevator to take.

The family is still perplexed on how Sissy sniffed her way to the hospital. But they think she might have knew her way around from car trips in dropping Nancy Franck off for work next door.
