You can't blame a dog for trying. A security camera showed a dog in Illinois get busted when he tried to bust his friends out of their cages to play.

It would appear that Charlie is an escape artist. His owners who are apparently from Chicago, Illinois based on the video description caught Charlie in the act. After he escaped from his daytime cage, his owners watched him try to bust his friends out, too. Watch closely for the look on Charlie's face when he realizes he's been caught in the act.

If you've ever had a Boxer, you know that they are capable of all kinds of fun mischief. They're also incredibly smart and it doesn't surprise me one little bit that good ole Charlie knows how to get past the cage latches.

Feel free to insert your favorite comment about this just being more crime in Chicago. I'll wait.

The comments on Charlie's video share are hilarious including my favorite which mentions that "Charlie is the friend we wish we all had". Amen to that.
