A border collie that crashed a Jeep into a parked car is still a “very good dog” but won’t be taking the wheel again anytime soon, her family has said.

Six-year-old Freya’s naughty antics meant she will no longer be riding at the front – and will be relegated to the boot for future rides.

Sue Brewer, 60, says her dog was ‘perfect’ after the crash earlier this month.

Hilarious doorbell footage released this week showed the six-year-old at the wheel of the family’s 4×4.

Sue said Freya, her daughter’s dog, jumped into the front seat and knocked the automatic transmission into “drive” – ​​sending the vehicle down the hill.

And the housewife added: “That day she took it into her head to jump into the driver’s seat.

Earlier this month she managed to move the car into the station and crashed it Shaun Waller/SWNS

“Now she will be sent to the dog cage in the boot.”

Shaun Waller, 34, was working when he heard a bang outside his home in Gronant, North Wales.

He went to investigate and saw that his neighbor’s Jeep Cherokee had collided with his parked car.

Shaun, a senior analyst, then went to review his doorbell footage – and saw that Freya had been at the wheel.

Sue, a mother-of-two and great-of-two, explained that the pet had accidentally put the car in gear.

She said: “My dog ​​was in the boot in her cage and I went to put Freya into the front passenger foot well where there is a wire attached to the bottom of the seat.

“She took matters into her own hands, jumped into the driver’s seat and tapped the automatic transmission into operation.

“The car was parked on a slope – it started to roll and crashed into the car on the opposite side.”

Shaun said he and his partner thought the incident was funny and didn’t care about the injury.

But Sue said: “My car is really nice, it’s just a cracked bumper. It’s a Jeep Cherokee, so it’s very robust and has a lot of weight in it.

“The neighbour’s car could possibly be a write-off.

“I swore to Freya at the time, which I shouldn’t have done.

“I got her out of the car and got her where she needed to be so I could move the car. She didn’t know she had done anything wrong.

Sue said her daughter was relieved no one was injured in the incident.

And she added that Freya is still a “very good dog”.

Sue said: ‘She’s a really good dog, she’s fantastic with the kids and she’s a really great family dog.

‘My daughter [who owns Freya] was very surprised and happy that me and the dog were fine.

“My other daughter sent me a picture of her partner sitting with the star on the cover in York.”

After the video was filmed on December 1, Shaun said: “I work from home and was working as normal when I heard some commotion outside.

“I looked out the window and saw that my neighbour’s car had rolled down the driveway and hit my car.

“Me and my partner were laughing hysterically – it’s an old car so we weren’t too bothered by the damage.”
