Dog that ran entire length of the 520 bridge reunited with family

SEATTLE -- The white, fluffy dog that ran the entire length of the SR 520 Bridge during Monday morning's commute was reunited with family Tuesday, the Seattle Animal Shelter said.

The dog's name is Huan-Huan, the shelter explained, and he was staying with family while his owners are traveling. He dug under the family's fence -- and went on his long run, caught on camera. He was not injured.

The dog ran the entire length of the bridge -- against traffic --  before it jumped into the bushes near Lake Washington Blvd.

The dog also managed to escape good Samaritans and officials.

Just before 4 p.m., WSDOT said the dog was eventually caught and was taken to the Seattle Animal Shelter.
