HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — The owners of a small dog that escaped in Texas have no idea how he made it to a southwest Ohio shelter more than 1,000 miles away in just a few days.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the 3-year-old Chihuahua-dachshund mix named Corbin dug a hole under a fence in his backyard in Killeen, Texas, on March 25. He was found Saturday, tied to a bench outside an animal shelter in Hamilton, Ohio.

Local officials hope to identify a woman seen on surveillance footage as she left the dog at the shelter.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal News reports a microchip on the dog helped identify the owners. One says Corbin previously escaped by digging holes but was always found in Killeen.

Corbin was in good shape and was headed home Wednesday.
