CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A six-pound dog visiting Cambridge from New York City slipped from her owner's line of sight and crossed over the river to Boston, living away from her home for almost a month before she was reunited with her family on Saturday.
One of the original missing posts came from the nonprofit organization Missing Dogs of Massachusetts, which says the story of Luna's return is one with many twists and turns (most of which involve high traffic roads in the Greater Boston Area.)
According to MDM, Luna went missing on September 23, and was spotted scampering towards The Longfellow Bridge on the Memorial Drive side of the river. From there the organization says Luna crossed into Boston over the bridge, where witnesses say they saw the tiny white dog head into some green space near "crazy busy traffic."
Reports say from there Luna made her way onto the Route 1 entrance ramp, running alongside the highway until someone pulled over, stopped traffic, and picked up the pooch. It wasn't until Saturday that the good Samaritan spotted Luna's missing flyer and contacted her owner.
The MDM thanks multiple agencies that helped out in the matter including The Animal Rescue League of Boston, the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-Angell Animal Medical Center, and the Massachusetts State Police.
