HANNIBAL, Mo. - A 9-month-old Yorkie was not about to leave a Missouri rest stop without his master. Mistakenly left behind by an Arkansas truck driver, Rambo waited there for two days until his owner was able to track him down.
Rambo jumped out of Michael Siau’s rig when Siau stopped at a rest area near Hannibal on Friday, the Hannibal Courier-Post reported.
“Didn’t even cross my mind that he might jump out,’’ he said.
Siau made it all the way to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 170 miles to the north, before he realized Rambo was gone.
Siau said he was “freaking out’’ as he tried to determine where Rambo was lost. He finally concluded the pup must have gotten out in Missouri, and he began calling authorities.
Sure enough, little Rambo was there, sitting patiently.
