A dog is home again after US police posted her mugshot on social media.

Patrolman Michael LeSage of Cape May, New Jersey found Bean the pug in a yard on Sunday.

He told The Star-Ledger of Newark he tried to get the dog to hop into his police car, but her legs were too short so he had to lift her.

Police posted a photo of Bean on Facebook with the caption: “This is what happens when you run away from home.”

It took a few hours before Bean’s owners tracked her down.

Hadley Hubbard of Baltimore, Maryland, thanked police and posted that Bean was sound asleep.

Mr LeSage posted that Bean paid her bail in biscuits.
