A tiny service dog that went missing in San Marcos Friday morning has been safely reunited with his owner, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department confirmed.

Zeus, a two-year-old Chihuahua was last seen around 11:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Goodard Street in San Marcos. He was not wearing a collar or his service dog jacket at the time.

Officials released an alert about Zeus Friday, asking locals to be on the lookout for the pooch and contact the Sheriff’s non-emergency line with any information.

It worked.

Deputies said a San Marcos resident found Zeus and saw the Sheriff’s Department alert. He called officials and the service dog was reunited with his owner, who really needs him.

Zeus is known to bark when his owner's oxygen tank has any kind of issues or when his owner falls.
