LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – The lost dog that walked into a service plaza on the Mass Pike in Ludlow Thursday morning has been reunited with her owner.

Charlton Animal Control Officer Ann Sellew told 22News she received a call early this morning from Massachusetts State Police troopers who had picked up the dog after she wandered into the Gulf Express on I-90 East.

“Maybe she wanted a coffee?” Massachusetts State Police wrote on their official Facebook page.

Sellew said they ran into a couple obstacles because the dog, now identified as 7-year-old Lexe, was not up to date on her rabies shot and was not licensed.

The tan and white Brittany Spaniel was released to her owner after being taken to get her rabies shot and license.

State police joked earlier Thursday morning that until animal control officers found the owner, they might have a job for her. “In the meantime, we were thinking of putting her to work with our K-9 unit, as she seemed to enjoy the ride in the cruiser.”
