NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — MTA Police and a group of Long Island veterinarians are trying to find the owner of a train hopping dog found on Tuesday.

A news release from the Long Island Veterinary Specialists says the yellow lab and pit bull mix was removed from a train at the Farmingdale Railroad Station.

Passengers said the canine, described as “happy, friendly and well fed,” boarded a train in Wyandanch.

Pat Rosen, of LIVS, said the dog had no identification chip and that officials have been unable to determine if the dog was lost or ran away.

“With the severe weather last night, we think he possibly was frightened and bolted through an open door or hopped a fence and ran,” Rosen said.

Anyone with information can contact Pat Rosen at Long Island Veterinary Specialists at (516)-501-1700 ext. 243.
