CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – The bond between a dog and their owner is special. It’s extremely special for Sissy, a schnauzer who went searching for her owner.

When Nancy Franck was hospitalized for a surgery, her husband Dale was upset when Sissy ran away, something she had never done before, according to KCRG.

Security personnel at the hospital was shocked when they saw a dog running through the lobby, and when they grabbed her, they noticed her tags said her address was quite far away.

Security called Dale, and that’s when he realized Sissy had come in search of her mom.

The family said they never brought Sissy to the hospital before and think she may have found it because it’s near Nancy’s work, where she has been before.
