A Labrador retriever has crossed the Canadian-U.S. border with a border crossing sign.
The Labrador, named the Lassie, was found by border officials in Michigan last week and was euthanized.
Lassies are extremely social dogs and can be found in the wild across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Border Patrol agents said they were able to find the dog through an online search and a video of the dog was posted to YouTube by a user named Joe.
“We were able get him by locating a video and video of him crossing the border,” said Sgt. Jeff Miller, of the U-M-Stout police.
“He’s a very sweet dog and I’m proud of him for having crossed the border.”
Miller said the border crossing was the first time Lassied have crossed the southern border.
“I don’t know how they got him, but we found him crossing,” Miller said.
Lasses can be trained to walk up to 20 miles in a single day.
Miller said Lassierts are very territorial, but are very friendly.
They love to play, especially with other dogs.
Miller also said Lasses are a good guard dog, and are very protective of their owners.
