Someone catch that dog!

A tiny chihuahua, who reportedly escaped from his home, was spotted running down a busy expressway in New York, according to the New York Post.

Normally, one might expect to encounter an animal such as a deer or raccoon this time of year on the roads of New York state. However, seeing a tiny dog running across one of the busiest highways in the area is not something you see every day.

The New York Post says that a runaway Chihuahua named Bean was witnessed running across the Staten Island Expressway. The Staten Island Advance says that dashcam footage caught the encounter, as a number of divers attempted to assist the small dog.

One driver can even be seen putting her own vehicle into the path of oncoming traffic in an HOV lane after the scared dog ran under her vehicle and tried to escape, says the Advance.
