Dog works some magic to escape humane society and find a forever home

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -

A 5-yr.-old Australian Shepherd named Houdini is living up to his name.

Check out this surveillance video from the Humane Society in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  The pup wiggles out of his kennel and strolls through the halls.  He makes his way out of not just one, but two doors, eventually ending up outside the building.

"He had to actually push down the handle, push the door open and walk out in both cases,” explained Gretchen Pressley, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.

For his final act, Houdini then walked to a neighborhood a mile away and found himself a forever home.

A woman found Houdini wandering around her street and decided she wanted to adopt him.
