WASHINGTON Members of the Leroy family in Washington thought they were the target of a prankster when they kept finding a stray dog inside their parked car.

Intent on catching the culprit, they set up a video camera to record the vehicle.
However, they were surprised at what they caught on film.

The video captured the dog as she opened the car door on her own and climbed inside.
The family is now circulating posters of the dog and has contacted the local Humane Society.
So far, no one has claimed the canine.

Oh my, the Leroy family should claim the dog! Its either homeless or a roamer, either way sounds like it needs a home, a warm one. One who is smart enough to open car doors is pretty damned rare IMO and he seems to like their car enough that they should let him stay.

"The dog managed to hot-wire the ignition and start the engine, but was unable to flee the scene because she couldn't drive a stickshift."

Like I said, it's a damn good thing they don't have opposable thumbs.

Which proves that at the minimum, the dog is smarter than the car owner (what, no lock?) or the car designer, but not necessarily smarter than the average high school dropout.

i never lock my car. in fact, when i'm at home, i leave the keys in the ignition.

i've found it's easier to drive a car no one in their right mind would want to steal and to not leave anything in it anyone would covet.

When I lived in DC I drove an 8 year-old Accord and never left so much as a gum wrapper visible, having had it broken into before (and having lost all my shoes in that break-in).
On two consecutive days, my car was broken into. The first day's haul: 37 cents and a button from the ashtray. (Have I told this story here before?) The second day there was nothing left to steal that wasn't a part of the car. Dumb crackheads.
My next door neighbor was captain of our neighborhood watch. He pushed me into reporting the break-ins.
Police sergeant, cracking up: 'Was the button insured? What was the value of the button? Did the button have a serial number?'

Well, there is that.
The old Toyota pickup I rolled in "93 fit that bill. No head liner, felt head pad hanging down and a dent on every single panel and finding no one parked next to you for a 2 mile radius when you walked out from the store was a clue. Never bothered to lock it.
I figured if they were that desperate, they really needed a vehicle a lot more than I did.

what a haul! the only thing anyone could steal out of my car is harriet's bath mat(T)hew (tm) or the pile o' trash behind the passenger seat. or my dashboard pantheon, heaven forbid!

i don't think so just the story about the 147 pairs of shoes .

crackhead sounds about right. what on Urth were they thinking?!

Glassy-eyed crackhead:
'Ohh. Shiny. Button. Might could trade for a tiny rock.'

I let it ride because just the week before, he rescued me when I was being threatened by city garbage workers. (Do not move to Washington DC unless you know who to bribe.)
