In Hoboken, NJ Transit police took command of the pup and are now trying to find his or her owner.
Of the white Maltese-looking mutt, they wrote on social media, “Do you know who I am? Help us get this pup home. This dog boarded a NJ Transit train at Mountain Station around 7:52 a.m. today [Thursday]. He was following an unrelated commuter and rode to Hoboken Terminal. NJTPD District 3 officers inquired with agencies around Mountain Station.”
The morning commute spanned 17 miles across North Jersey.
Was the bold bow-wow off to an early meeting? Or is he one of those famous pooches who looks for his owner every day at the station, like Hachiko?
