Dog reunited with owners after he was nearly hit by cars on U.S. 36

DENVER -- The search for the owners of a dog who narrowly escaped a tragic ending while darting in and out of traffic on U.S. 36 Friday morning has been called off, now that the pup is back in the safety of his parents' loving arms.

FOX31 and Channel 2 is thrilled to report that "Snoopy" has been reunited with his owners.

Original story below:

Many saw footage of  the dog as he ran across lanes of U.S. 36 near the Federal Boulevard exit. He eventually made his way off the highway and into a neighborhood unhurt.

Steven Daniels and Anh Nguyen spotted the dog at West 74th Avenue and Beach Court, where they were able to corner him and take him home.

They first gave him a much-needed bath and have given him the temporary name of "Albert."

Daniels and Nguyen got the dog's chip checked, but there was no owner registered to it.

For now, the dog is staying with Daniels and Nguyen until his owner is located.
