Chihuahua Found in Luggage at LaGuardia Airport

The TSA found an unlikely stowaway while checking baggage at LaGuardia Airport this week -- a passenger’s pet Chihuahua.

Security agents were screening luggage in the baggage check Tuesday when a hard black suitcase triggered an alarm, the agency said. When they opened the bag, agents were surprised to find the small brown and beige pup staring up at them.

After finding the dog, the TSA was able to track down the dog’s owner, who said the pup must have climbed in the suitcase while packing for a trip.

The woman later called her husband, who came to pick up the dog.
