DALLAS (NBC)–A dog that went missing in North Texas during a trip from Seattle to Mississippi will be reunited with her owner after airline officials said they found her in Hawaii.
The dog, named Bethany, was headed back to D/FW International Airport on Monday and will be reunited with her owner on Tuesday, said American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely.
“We want her to be well-rested,” Huguely said to the NBC affiliate in Dallas/Fort Worth.
Bethany disappeared after a layover in Dallas Saturday on her way from Seattle to Jackson, Mississippi. But her owner, Paul Chen, said she never made it to Mississippi.
Chen reported the Pembroke Welsh Corgi missing Sunday afternoon.
Airline officials quickly found her — in Hawaii.
“She took a little bit of a vacation to Honolulu,” Hugely joked. “She has been well taken care of the entire time.”
Bethany has been under the care of a veterinarian, she said.
Chen said airline officials told him they found Bethany in Honolulu late Sunday.
“Don’t know how or why she got there, but I am glad she is safe and sound,” he said in an email.
Huguely said the airline will look into what happened with “the misconnect” but has been focused on returning Bethany to her owner.
