A woman was seen driving through the area, when she pulled over, opened the car door and crouched to the ground.

Atlas was seen running over to the woman, and the Japanese Spitz was picked up and put in a car.

The dog had just had a bath and wasn't wearing a collar.

Her owners took her eyes off her for a minute to grab an item from inside their house.
