In Elmhurst, Queens, the Port Authority Police “re-rescued” a stray pooch on his way to a New York rescue organization after having been saved from the streets of Puerto Rico. The dog unexpectedly made a break for it at the LaGuardia Airport on Sunday afternoon.
To the rescue came the Port Authority Police, who didn’t mind getting dirty to rescue the adorable mixed breed pooch named Beethoven. He had escaped from his crate after deplaning at Hangar 5A and made a run for it.
According to Abc7News, Beethoven sprinted down Runway Drive and slipped under a fence that separates the airport from Grand Central Parkway. Of course, the pooch wasn’t done with his escape plan yet when he ran away again – only to become trapped inside of another fenced area. Officers cut an opening in the fence, leashed up Beethoven and returned him to his handler.
No dogs or officers hurt during the rescue. Many thanks to Port Authority Police Officer Keri McCarthy. You rock!
