CLAWSON, Mich. (KABC) -- When a pet owner's frightened dog jumped out of her car after an accident and bolted the woman thought she might never see her beloved Aries again.

The dog had another idea.

Following the accident outside Detroit, Michigan, the pit bull mix ran about a mile down the road.

Apparently, the scared animal knew where she was going.

Surveillance video shows Aries pacing with excitement outside the doggy daycare that she frequently visits, begging to be let in.

The doggy daycare's owner called Melissa Fickel to let her know Aries was safe.

Melissa was thrilled that Aries was just fine and that she knew her way around town.
