This is the moment a mischievous mutt made her Great Escape by jumping out of a first-floor window.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier Sasha had clearly had enough of being at home alone last Friday evening when her owners were out.
A CCTV camera attached to Christopher and Steph Tyler’s home in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, shows their dog soaring out of their bedroom window, before landing with a thud in the front garden.

FIve-year-old Sasha, seemingly unfazed by the fall, then tries to escape – but thankfully was taken in by a neighbour, who saw the whole thing.
Healthcare worker Steph, 30, said she and Christopher, 29, and their children Jack, 11, and Paige-Mia, seven, had gone to Christopher’s brother’s house for a short visit when naughty Sasha leapt out the window, at 6.50pm on Friday.
Steph said: ‘We’d only been out for 20 minutes when we got a call from our neighbour, who said that Sasha had jumped out the window.

Fortunately, a neighbour saw the whole episode and took Sasha in while her owners were out
‘We can access the house cameras from our phones, so I had a look and I swore when I saw it. I thought, “Of course she’s done this.”
‘Luckily, our neighbour has dogs too, so she caught Sasha and put her in her back garden with her dogs until we could get back.
‘Sasha was very lucky she didn’t get injured. We could tell that her legs and paws were fine, but we thought she must have done some damage to her ribs with that landing.
‘But we took her to the vets the next morning and she had no injuries at all – and she was back to jumping up as if nothing had happened.
‘Someone was obviously looking over her.’
Steph added: ‘We make sure all the windows are properly shut now when we go out. Sasha doesn’t like it when we’re not there.’
