CAPE MAY, New Jersey — Pug life, yo.
A runaway pug was returned to her owner after cops in Cape May, New Jersey posted her mugshot online.
Bean was found wandering in a family’s backyard on Sunday, prompting Patrolman Michael LeSage to look to the web to find her owner.
“This is what happens when you run away from home. This guy was captured sneaking through yards on the 1300 block on New Jersey Avenue. #pugmug,” the Cape May police posted on Facebook along with the mugshot which quickly went viral.
A few hours later, Bean’s owners contacted police after being informed by a neighbor that their dog had become a minor internet sensation.
“The pug’s owner has been located, and he has been released on bail,” police joked later on Facebook.
Hadley Hubbard, of Baltimore, Maryland, identified herself as Bean’s owner on social media.
“Bean is sound asleep at home after an exciting afternoon on the run,” she wrote.
