Earlier this week, a commuting terrier made headlines as people tried to help him find his way home.
The dog was found at 8:46 A.M. at Sallins – Heuston station. The commuting terrier was free-riding his way on the busy commuter train from Kildare to Dublin.
Fortunately, after his half-hour train ride, the friendly railway workers saw him and happily took him under their wing. They said that the dog was found all on his own after disembarking the train. They nicknamed the adventurous dog Hamish. Hamish didn’t have a collar or a microchip to know about his family’s information.

The railway staff made an announcement on Twitter to spread the word about the lost dog’s whereabouts. This began a viral campaign to help find Hamish’ family. After learning about the lost dog, some locals offered to adopt the thrill-seeking pup in case his family doesn’t show up.
While waiting for the dog’s family to pick him up, the railway staff kept him busy. They walked the commuting terrier around the train station and even played fetch with him. They said that Hamish is very friendly and well-behaved.
Because his family hasn’t been found yet, My Lovely Horse agreed to keep Hamish for the night. This is an animal rescue center in Co Kildare where one of the railway staff was volunteering. Fortunately, the next day, Hamish’ family came in and picked him up.

His family was delighted to know that their beloved dog is safe and is now back in their arms. They explained that the dog ran off while they were doing some repair work on their house. They also said that his real name is Tyson.
Before going back home, My Lovely Horse had Tyson microchipped. This would make it easier to find his family in case he decides to go on another adventure on his own.
