PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Zeus had been missing for three months after jumping out of a car and fleeing.
According to Pittsburgh Public Safety, earlier this summer, owner Zeus and his children were crossing the Homestead Bridge when one of the children opened a window, causing Zeus to jump up and run away.
Then, on Wednesday, Animal Care and Control received a call from a lost dog.
“We received a call for a found dog and when we arrived and scanned the dog, which had a microchip, we were able to contact the owners,” said animal control officer Jeff Ley. “We returned the dog and found out today was the owner’s birthday!”
Zeus was scanned, checked and returned to his owner, Mr. Boyd, safe and sound.
Talk about a happy birthday.
