ISLE OF WIGHT Co., Va. - If you think you've seen it all, get ready to be surprised yet again!

This Beagle channeled her inner Harry Houdini and was caught on video scaling a shelter cage.

Her name is Buttermilk and she is currently housed at the Isle of Wight County Animal Shelter. The shelter posted the hilarious video on their Facebook page and it's getting a lot of attention!

"The fact that she's so tiny I was a little surprised she could scale that," said Emily Glickman, a shelter employee. "She's a little bit of a shier dog. She probably hasn't had a lot of social experience with people."

A shelter representative said Buttermilk is thought to be between the ages of 1-3 years old.

News 3 is told she's since been moved to a bigger kennel with a ceiling so she can't escape.

The shelter says she's likely headed to her forever home in the coming days and that her prospective owner is aware of her climbing habit.
