CASTLE SHANNON (KDKA) — A Yorkie named Ziggy ran off after he had surgery at the Castle Shannon Animal Hospital.

The dog’s owner and volunteers from the animal hospital searched for him for about four hours.

Jim Robinson, Ziggy’s owner, said he and his girlfriend brought Ziggy to the hospital early Monday morning to get neutered.

The surgery was successful, but he ran off during a post-operative walk.

The dog was found several blocks away under a porch.

Jenna Geary, Robinson’s girlfriend, took the dog back to the vet’s for a checkup and he was fine.

They won’t be charged for Ziggy’s surgery.
