Dog lost at Logan Airport found
BOSTON -- A dog lost at Boston Logan International Airport was found on Wednesday.
Little Pedro is finally enjoying some downtime at the Animal Rescue League in Boston right now.
“He’s scared, of course, but he’s really sweet. He’s just trying to take it all in, you know, he’s been resting a lot, I think he’s exhausted,” said Debby Vogel of the Animal Rescue League.
The 2-year-old Beagle mix is a rescue dog from Puerto Rico, so he's still getting used to the cold. He belongs to an animal rescue group from Maine.
“They flew him into Logan Airport to bring him to their shelter,” said Vogel.
Officials say Pedro escaped from his crate inside a terminal Monday night and ended up in the airport's central parking.
"We couldn't believe how much ground he covered in such a short amount of time,” said Vogel.
A team from the Animal Rescue League scoured the garage Tuesday night looking for the puppy, and set up traps to catch him safely.
“They’re humane box traps, and we set them with warm blankets and some food to entice him in, but it didn’t work,” said Vogel.
He was found by State Police Wednesday morning behind Terminal E.
Pedro will be kept at the animal rescue league for a few more days to make sure he's okay, then it will be decided if he'll head up to Maine for adoption - or look for a home in the Bay State.
