“It took a while, I mean he was fast, he was running. We set up several road blocks, but he just ran right around them. Eventually, we were able to box him in. I used my jacket to distract him and the motor officer came up and took him into custody,” California Highway Patrol Officer Vu Williams told KGO-TV.

The pup was taken to San Francisco Animal Care and Control.

Officials are currently looking for its owner.
