Airport authorities found themselves chasing a wiener dog across the runway when he escaped from a plane while being transported.

Newark Liberty International Airport officials said a dachshund named Henry escaped from a Lufthansa plane while it was being unloaded and ran around the tarmac for more than an hour before he was located by officers, the New York Post reported. Port Authority Police cornered the pup by an airfield fence, but were unable to get him into custody.

The dog's owner was eventually let off a plane to collect her pet. When Henry saw her, he ran into her arms.
