It’s a real little feat that Marshall, a Golden Retriever puppy, has achieved. The young dog took a little getaway in the middle of the night, then went home and rang the doorbell to be let in.
Our dogs will always surprise us with their intelligence , even the youngest. Marshall’s story confirms this. What he did is quite astonishing and was immortalized by the CCTV system of the home of its owner, Greg Basel .

In fact, it’s not a classic doorbell that the young Golden Retriever has activated, but a connected model that sends an alert to Greg’s smartphone when someone presses it. From then on, the device films what is happening behind the door. The sequence obtained (below) was shared on YouTube, where many Internet users were able to express their admiration and their amusement in front of this unusual scene.
